Hoes play your position cause you'll never be King
A hoe is a female so they can never be Kings only queens. In this line “Hoes” goes to the list of many of Nas “male” rivals, mainly Jay-Z who rivalled Nas for the King of New York title.
Hoes also sounds like Hov so Nas is telling Jay-Z to play his position cause he’ll never be King of New York.
