Now I can stunt 'til my ass dead broke like JD
This might be a reference to Jermaine Dupri. At the time, 50 and Em were running around talking about how they “inherited” beef from each other. This particular beef went from Dr. Dre to Eminem in the song “Say What You Say” to 50 Cent. Xzibit also got involved with the song “My Name”. This all apparently started when Dupri made some remarks in Vibe magazine comparing his skills as a producer to Timbaland and Dre.
It’s not clear whether this “J.D.” is Dupri or somebody from 50’s hood, as both scenarios seem plausible.
