I got a Hublot, I call it Tebow, I strap that bitch with a gator band
Y'all niggas ball half-time, y'all niggas like the Gator band
Jay loves his Hublot watches:
The band to his Hublot isn’t ordinary leather…nope. Mr. Nice Watch has an alligator skin band. Now here is where it gets clever. In college, Tim Tebow was a national phenom on multi-championship winning Florida Gators. So there’s the “gator” tie in.
In college football, of course, the marching bands only take the field during the halftime show, thus the “Gator band” reference — he means the marching band from Tebow’s alma mater, and Jigga disses his antagonists by saying that, likewise, they only “ball” a fraction of the time/way he can
Jay also gives Tebow a gator “chin strap” football pun
BONUS: Is it a coincidence that “Tebow TIME” is a popular phrase these days? Hmmmm….
