But who was sleepin' from couch to couch
And basement to basement but Jay Man
In an interview Jay had he was asked why people who don’t know him should look at him as the best. He goes on to answer by referring to how a duck looks like it’s relaxed when it’s floating in the lake, but under neat his legs are moving, trying to keep it afloat, moving it forwards.
He then says that he’s just like the duck that he’s been working so hard, making connections etc. In this line he says that he thinks that it’s time he finally started going places because of all the work he’s done. Yet people still think he’s not good enough (ie the labels) or just can’t grasp his songs or don’t think he’ll be successful or think a deal with him would be lucrative. After all, most labels love a mainstream artist who can rake in money for them, Jay’s not really the type to make a “Club Can’t Handle Me”..
