Appetite for destruction and you're a small fry

from Jay Z (Ft. Nas) – Success Lyrics on Rap Genius


A densely worded pun. There’s Appetite for Destruction the album, of course. Also, the pairing of “appetite” and “fry”. Jay is big on food-related puns, and uses the same “appetite for destruction” motif on “U Don’t Know (Remix):

Appetite for destruction, I am starving today
Got a money hungry lawyer that’ll eat the case
And that’s just food for thought
Don’t let it go to waste
Nigga, bite the bullet until you stuffing ya face"

He also uses appetite for destruction on Girls, Girls, Girls
