Nas the Don, Super Cat the Don Dada, understood

from Nas (Ft. Mazy) – The Don Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Super Cat is a Jamacian DJ who features on this track, and Nas makes a shout out to him

Nas also references Super Cat’s nickname, Don Dada, which links him to the title of the song, as they both contain ‘Don.’

The nickname comes from contemporary usage of the phrase Don Dadda, which generally means someone who is in charge, most likely stemming from the roots ‘Don’ meaning a higher-up member of the mafia, and ‘Dada,’ a bastardization of ‘Dad,’ another mafia term for someone high up, like a godfather.

This is also a reference to Supercat’s track Don Dada.
