"Jigga My Nigga" is a single by Jay-Z's from the Ruff Ryders Entertainment compilation Ryde or Die Vol. 1. It also appeared as a hidden track on Jay-Z's fourth album, Vol. 3... Life and Times of S. Carter, contained within the final track "Hova Song (Outro)". Produced by Swizz Beatz, it reached #28 on the Billboard Hot 100. The song interpolates "Just Me, Just You" by The Counts & "What's My Name?" by Snoop Dogg, using the line "what's my motherfuckin' name?". The beat was later remade for "Scenario 2000" by Eve featuring Ruff Ryders.

On the "Jigga My Nigga" CD single, three non-Jay-Z tracks are featured: Memphis Bleek's "Mempis Bleek Is...," Rell's "When You Will See" and Beanie Sigel's "What a Thug About."
