Spanish Jose introduced me to 'caine
I'm a hustler now
Spanish Jose was a friend of DeHaven, who talked about this in a later interview saying that Jay and him weren’t affiliated in any kind
Spanish Jose, who he mentions a lot in his songs, was a friend of mine. Jay didn’t have no affiliation to Spanish Jose.
But since he dealt drugs in Marcy Projects, Hova probably looked up to him as some sort of inspiration while growing up and eventually became a hustler just like Jose.
