I played chicken with a Mack truck, y'all muthafuckas woulda been moved
Chicken a is game where two drivers get in a car and go full speed straight towards each other. The first person to ‘chicken’ out is the person who moves on out of the impending collision.
Jay-Z has the courage to not move, plus he used to “move weight” (sell drugs)
He also suggests that his past experiences have the power to emotionally “move” others
Trivia: playing chicken in NY is running across the street when a truck is coming and not getting hit.
