Am I greedy? Like Amin Idi see me

from Jay Z (Ft. Lord Tariq & Nas) – Analyze This Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Amini Idi was a Ugandan dictator and the nation’s third president. Here, Nas is questioning if he is greedy for power just like Amini Idi was.

The dictator was known, like most dictators, for flamboyant displays of wealth such as luxury cars, expensive vacations, fine women, which you will see Nas draw comparisons to later.
