You made it a hot line, I made it a hot song

from Jay Z – Takeover Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

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.

“You make hot songs but she know you steal from me”
