This song begins with Jay-Z asking a girl if she would still love him if he wasn't famous and couldn't facilitate an extravagant lifestyle for her. In the second verse, the girl responds by expressing her concerns that a man who lacks the ambition to support her tastes for luxury goods isn't capable of pleasing her.
In the explicit version, the chorus is, "Can I get a F--k You," making it clear that Jay doesn't respect a woman who is after him for his money.
Ja Rule performs the third verse. This gave him a great deal of exposure and credibility, helping him become a very popular rapper.

This appeared on the soundtrack to the movie Rush Hour.
"White "Christmas" was so popular that Bing had to re-record the song five years after the original 1942 recording because the original masters had been worn out from all the pressings. This is the version that became a holiday tradition.
Bruce Springsteen wrote "Blinded By The Light," which was a #1 hit for Manfred Mann's Earth Band. The "Madman Drummers" line is a reference to Springsteen's first E-Street drummer, Vinnie "Mad dog" Lopez.
