Know the shit I don't write be the illest shit that's ever been recited
In the game word to the hyphen in my name!

from Jay Z (Ft. Dr. Dre & Rakim) – The Watcher 2 Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Jay-Z does not write any of his lyrics down: he goes into the booth, hears the beat, and composes the lyrics in his head and then spits them. So his lyrics are the best to ever be spat

UPDATE: He no longer has a hyphen in his name
