But catch me down the Westside

from Jay Z – Threat Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

The Westside Highway, a freeway that stretches down the west side of Manhattan.

This is also an almost veiled plug to the movie ‘Westside Story’, a musical movie that contains violence which fits the parallel Jay draws between music and violence in the entire verse.
