Yo, gather round hustlers - that's if you still livin
And get on down to that ol' Jig rhythm
No matter how popular Jay may become, he still makes his music for the hustlers in the streets.
The first two lines of this song are a shoutout to Slick Rick’s “The Ruler’s Back”, to which this song is an extended tribute:
Gather ‘round party goers as if your still livin
And get on down to the old Slick rhythm
In addition, Jay’s version of these two lines were sampled by Jay’s “little brother” Kanye West on his song “Good Morning”
