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.
The TV show Cheers was nearly canceled after its first season, but the theme song, "Where Everybody Knows Your Name," was very popular. To satisfy viewer demand, the theme was made into a full song and released as a single.
