I whip the coke, let the lawyer beat the case
Jay plays on the word “whip” and “beat,” as they (can) share the same meaning.
Jay could’ve taken the inspiration for this line from this Ross line from “Hustlin' (Remix),” a previous collaboration between the two.
I’m whippin' the case like I’m whippin' the base.
He could be implying that he still sells drugs, but is not worried cause he knows his lawyer will somehow prove he is not guilty.
Could Be reference To “Carlito’s Way”
