No more Mr. Nice Guy, hello Mr. Nice Watch
Only but a matter of time 'fore I hit yall niggas with a nice shot

from J. Cole (Ft. Jay Z) – Mr Nice Watch Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

This line could perhaps be Jay’s subliminal response to Lil Wayne’s diss track “It’s Good” off Tha Carter IV, but is more likely to be generalized posturing.

“No more Mr. Nice Guy” is, also, possibly a reference to a line he used on Brooklyn’s Finest, the third track off of Jay’s debut album Reasonable Doubt.

No more Mister Nice Guy, I twist your shit
The fuck back with them pistols

“Matter of time” continues the time wordplay
