You made it a hot line, I made it a hot song
Nas' line in “The World Is Yours”: “I’m out for presidents to represent me” was the hook of Jay-Z’s classic Dead Presidents II. Even though it´s more than a hot line, in fact a classic and Rapabout.com ranked it in their top 10 rap songs.
The unauthorized use — which was fair use, but whatever! — sparked their whole beef.
Also a very clever reference to an earlier diss, undoubtedly at Jay-Z in “Come Get Me” by Nas.
The ‘hot song’ is too much of a coincidence…
