Police pursued me, chased cuffed and subdued me
Talked to me rudely; cause I'm young rich and I'm black
And livin a movie, not livin by rules

from Jay Z – Blueprint (Momma Loves Me) Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

The police chased, handcuffed and were rude to Jay-Z. The reason for this is that not only is he black and rich, but his lifestyle appears to the cops as something out of a movie. All these are causes of envy and retaliation from the police.

Not living by rules thus has a double aspect to it; not only is he straight-forwardly breaking the law, he also appears to be living a life where the normal rules don’t apply — as if he were in a movie.
