When you hot I'm hot
And when your feet cold, mines is sizzling

from Kanye West (Ft. Jay Z & J. Ivy) – Never Let Me Down Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Reference to his longevity in this rap game. He acknowledges other rappers have come up and had their time in the spotlight: Mase, DMX, Ja Rule, etc.
