WTH is a “Hova”?
not for anything but Jay-Z is probably better equipped to handle the economy than the Kenyan marxist is. He actually runs his own business and knows the meaning of profit and loss.
WTH is a Jigga?
Jay-Z is a rap artist. He uses a few nicknames including Jigga and Hova.
Jigga is a play on the n-word.
Hova is a corruption of the word Jehovah.
The line "H to the Izz-O, V to the Izz-A" is a slang method of spelling out H.O.V.A. It was a trizzend in the rizzap community to put "izz" in words.
"Hova" refers to what Jay-Z calls his "God Name," which is "Jay-Hova," as in Jehovah.
Jay-Z raps about himself throughout the song. It is a short summary of his life, including how he sold crack in Brooklyn and showed his entrepreneurial streak by going to Virginia and Maryland to peddle drugs there for a bigger profit. Proceeds from drug dealing allowed him to finance his first album and start Roc-A-Fella Records. http://tinyurl.com/yemojuf
