La Familia

Album: Magna Carta... Holy Grail (2013)

Songfacts®:

  • Hova compares himself to a Mafia godfather on this Magna Carta… Holy Grail cut. He also hits back at Lil Wayne for his "It's Good" jab when he lyrically threatened to kidnap Beyoncé. Weezy was responding to Jay calling him out on the Watch The Throne track "H.A.M." when he rapped, "You ain't got my lady money." Now Jigga warns the New Orleans spitter:

    "Wanna kidnap wifey?
    Good luck with that, bruh
    You must gonna hide your whole family
    What you think we wearing black for?"

    No one gets in the way of the Carters.
  • Some of you younger whippersnappers might not know that Hov named his 2000 album The Dynasty: Roc La Familia.
