23. "I'm not a businessman/I'm a business, man"

Song: "Diamonds From Sierra Leone (Remix)" (2005)
Album: Late Registration (Kanye West Album)
First Meaning: A business man is someone who puts on a suit every day and goes to work. That's not what Jay does.
Second Meaning: A business is a brand and operation. That's what Jay is.

Complex Says: We've all been pretty good about letting Jay handle his business, no?
