False alarms (Uhh), the next don (Naw)
Sticking with the fire drill theme, Jay says that the rappers and there fire drills aren’t for real fire like the one he’s setting ablaze with his albums (Well maybe not Kingdom Come but Blueprint, American Gangster, and Watch The Throne.)
This is one of the many subliminal shots that Jay and Wayne constantly throw at each other in their tracks. Wayne used to call himself “The Fireman” and Jay is saying that he is merely a “fire drill” and not “the next don”, because the previous one is still very much in his prime.
It could also be another shot at Dipset, since Jim Jones had a diss to Jay-z called Alarm
