It fuses the first few lines of Jay-Z's song, "99 Problems":



...with Edgar Allan Poe's short story "The Cask of Amontillado", which is about a guy who kills his friend by walling him inside his basement (he lures him in with the promise of inspecting the eponymous sherry).

I came in not knowing the song, only the Poe story, so I didn't properly get it, but now that I've seen the lyrics I agree that it has some ingenuity.
