But what does it mean if I'm a Muslim and you a Jew
And because of that alone we don't get along
All you have to do is look at Israel and Palestine to see what Jay is getting at with this line.
The juxtaposition to the line above suggests that he will not give into the temptation of making more money off of dumbed-down songs because there are more important things to talk about i.e. the clash between Jews and Muslims throughout the world. He most likely deems it irresponsible to rap about “the traditional garbage” when there are so many globally and locally important things he can expose his listeners to.
