I guess I blew up quick
Cause friends I grew up with
See me as a Premie but I'm not and my nuts big
The first line is also from Eminem´s song I´m Back
In this play on the meaning of ‘premie,’ Jay complains that friends who knew him before he was famous unfairly think he’s now a ‘prima donna,’ and then boasts that he’s also not a ‘premature baby’ because he has big nuts.
The word “nuts”, however, is most likely being used figuratively. “To have nuts” means “to be brave” or “to be daring”. Consequently, the phrase “my nuts big” suggests that Jay has enormous amounts of courage. He is a stand-up dude and is more grown up than they think.
