“I’m on my 3rd 6, but the devil I’m not” – Jay-Z (“Free Mason”)

I always assumed that Jay was bragging about whips on that line from “Free Mason,” but my brother from another Shea Serrano of the Houston Press made me do a double take. He doesn’t buy the idea that Jay, who’s alllegedly driven every car in every color except hot pink, would brag about a car (V6?). He has a point. I even double checked with some reputable Jay scholars and the general consensus seems to be that he’s talking about a car. A friend suggested I pose the question to TRU Nation and see if anyone knows exactly what that line is about. Anyone?

  1. Maybach 62?

    lol, I know nothing about cars.

  2. 6 Series Bemmer? Those cars are hot!!

  3. 6 series beamer ?

  4. mercedes s600?

  5. maybe it's just the 666 devil thing and nothing else…?

  6. wow,you guys are lame,6 series beamers,Mercedes 600 class…

  7. And you, sir, are incredibly wise for repeating the same thing 3 people before you already said.

  8. i'm pretty sure he is talking about the maybach 62 – he's on his 3rd maybach 62

  9. the line is obviously a nod to the fact that he just turned 666 years old this year.

  10. Maybach 62. He says so in Maybach Music 3. “I'm on my third six deuce”
    He also mentions never having a 57.

    the difference between the 57 and the 62 is primarily the wheel base.
    with a larger wheel base, the interior is bigger, allowing for the fully reclinable seats, a 62 hallmark, meaning that the 62 is of the highest luxury.

    except the maybach zeppelin, which is an even larger car, but only 100 were made, and jay might not have gotten in. exclusives for the illuminati

  11. double entendre – cars, illuminati. or even a triple entendre, this is the 3rd song he been on for rick ross. hustlin remix, maybach music, and free mason. hov is smart

  12. Haven't listened to it yet, but is he on his 18th bar when he drops the lyric?

  13. its obvious, this isnt about some stupid car…im on my 3rd six, 666…its plain as day..

  14. The FreeMasons have nothing to do with the Illuminati. gtfo with that bs. Like many others said hes making a nod to the cars, while shooting down the devil worshipping rumors.

    Im on my third 6 but a devil im not. he also said bitch i said i was amazin-not that im a mason. The whole song is his shots at those who perpetrated him as the “Illuminati” follower which is completely exaggerated.

  15. You guys is dumb he means 666 , the mark of the beast, the devil but he says. That's what the whole song is about. Stick to listening to Lil Wayne basic rhymes!

    • lmao you are so fucking stupid

  16. umm no, its that but he's obviously making a reference to something else

  17. Obviously, every one thought Jay is a Free Mason, and drooping a line saying he is on the third six but the devil he is not, translated will mean, though he might be coded the 666, he is not the devil,

  18. he says almost the exact same thing on the maybach music lost verse go search for it and download it..not the first time he says hes on his 3rd six..its all car talk..ne1 who thinks otherwise or is unsure needs to stop listenin to hiphop cuz u obviously dont get it

  19. What about hes on to 666 million dollars?

  20. what have 6 do with this?

  21. JAY Z IS ON SOME BULLSHIT HIM N THA REST OF THEM IT’S OBVIOUS SUMTHANG IS GOING ON WHEN THEY KEEP BRINGING UP THA FACT THAT THEY SOLD THEIR SOULS TO THE DEVIL AND IN LISTEN TO RICK ROSS IN THA BEGINNING HE’S TALK ABOUT CRIPTIED CODES N OLD EGEPT SCRIPTURES -___- PLUS ON THA OTHER SIDE EMINEM IS REACHING OUT TO HIS FANS FOR HELP IF U LISTEN TO HIS WORDS IN HIS NEW ALBUM RECOVERY THIS IS ALL THA BEGINNING IT’LL BE TO LATE WHEN EVERYBODY COME TO REALIZE

  22. You’re all wrong, Jay-Z is on his third Maybach 62S. that’s what he’s referring to. not a beamer, not a v6 lmfao. He’s a boss, Boss’s ride in maybachs. ya diggg.

  24. U guys are funny.. it means that Jay is on the 18th bar of his verse (3 x 6 = 18). Think outside the box..

    • excatly..3rd six bars,but the “devil” IM NOT..

    • excatly..3rd six bars,but the “devil” IM NOT..

      • only few guys here are smart,the rest as just fat dumb prags. jay-z is in some kinda illuminati shit, he said in his lines,,,B-tch I’m red hot, I’m on my third six but the devil I’m not
        My Jesus peice flooded, third six is very easy to find…1-6…2-6 and the 3-6. which is 666…now he said his jesus piece flooded, here he is trying to say that jesus is a less suprem force…he is into 666 but he is not the devil, just like a pastor will say that he is a savant of GOD bjt he is not GOD..
        go search about Jay=z on youtube and you will know about all his shits stuff..

  25. Most of you are DUMB ASSES…He’s CLEARLY talking about 62 maybach…NOTHING ELSE…he constantly talks about maybachs and call it the “six”…

    Some people should just stop interpreting rap lyrics let alone Jay-z because you are embarrassing yourselves…LMAO…ya’ll giving this dude wayyyyyy too much credit for being involved with the Devil and 666….Jay-z is a hood dude, he’s not that smart or intellectual as some of you think to be involved with that devil crap…

    I repeat…he’s talking about maybachs…him and rick ross have made songs called maybach music…

    It’s so funny to read people’s comments that to suggest that he’s talking about the devil…Jay-z has been talking about cars, money, clothes and hustler talk since he dropped reasonable doubt…I swear alotta of you dudes are idiots..

    • What does him being “hood” have to do with him not being involved with the devil…  Anyone from any background can be influenced by the devil.. You Sir are the real idiot.

  26. Its the 18th bar of his verse (3×6=18)

    • NA HE IS A MASON! IF NOT A BRANCH LIKE SHRINERS, SKULL N BONE WHICH I KNOW HE AINT, THE HERMETTIC ORDER OF THE GOLDEN DAWN, OR LIKE MANY MORE BUT ALL GET U TO THE “ILLUMINATION” CUZ THE MASON IS UP TO THE 3RD DEGREE, LOOK I WAS A MASON N I TELL U THIS HIS HAND SHAKES TELLS IT ALL BY A TOUCH OF A KNUCKLE N THE THUMBS POINTED UP AS A PYRAMID…. YOU SEE IF UR NOT HIGHER THAN THE 3RD DEGREE THEN U WON’T KNOW WHAT HE’S TALKING ABOUT. MA HA HA BONE!!!!! U SEE THEY ARE ALL UNDER THE JESUITS EVEN THE ILLUMINATI DRUIDS N CELTICS N BABYLONIAN MAGIC ARE ALL APART OF THIS! BUT UNDER THE 33o WHICH IS HONORARY DON’T KNOW THE SECRETS UNTIL THE HONORARY 33o IS CHOSEN TO THE ILLUMINATI N EVEN AT THAT THEY HAVE THEIR OWN RANKS. N YEAH IT’S TRUE CUZ I WAS A 32o MASON JAH-BAAL-ON! N A BUDDY WAS CHOSEN N ALL OF MY LIFE I DIDN’T KNOW I WAS DOING WRONG UNTIL I MET MY LORD JESUS CHRIST! IF U THINK I’M LYING THEN ANY MASON CAN ASK ME ANYTHING N I’LL ANSWER THEM WITH THE TRUTH! BECAUSE THERE IS A LOT OF INFO ON SYMBOLS BEHIND IT ALL OH WHEN HE TALKS ABOUT KING SOLOMONS SEAL N THE PYRAMIDS THAT’S MASONRY TOO!

  27. I always thought it was a reference to max contracts in the NBA.  Free agents resigning with their team can be paid more than those signing with another team and those contracts are a maximum 6 years in length. 

  28. 1st 6  = 6
    2nd 6 = 66
    3rd 6 = 666
