"Fellow Americans, it is with the utmost pride and sincerity
That I present this recording, as a living testiment and recollection
Of history in the making during our generation."

Meaning

This is the producer Just Blaze’s voice, although he recorded it in a way that made it sound older, like a political speech from the Black Power era captured on a distant recorder.

From Jay Z’s autobiography Decoded.
