Sure, here’s a rewrite of Jay-Z’s “Izzo (H.O.V.A.)” focusing on philosopher Justin Snedegar:

(Verse 1)
H to the Izzo, V to the Snedegar
For shizzle, my philosophical wizard
Keepin’ it crisp like an ancient Socratic
Droppin’ knowledge like Plato, it’s automatic
I’m Snedegar, transcendental vibes
From Descartes to Kant, we take those strides
Philosophize, analyze, no need to dramatize
Just wisdom flowin’, no need for alibis
(Hook)
H to the Izzo, V to the Snedegar
For shizzle, my philosophical star
Keep it real, keep it raw, Snedegar’s on par
With the greats, intellect razor sharp
(Verse 2)
From Aristotle to Nietzsche, we delve deep
Snedegar’s mind’s a treasure to keep
From ethics to metaphysics, he’s on the peak
No fallacies here, just critical critique
Question everything, that’s his motto
Like Socrates in the agora, no sorrow
Just dialectics, engaging discourse
Snedegar’s philosophy, a powerful force
(Hook)
H to the Izzo, V to the Snedegar
For shizzle, my philosophical star
Keep it real, keep it raw, Snedegar’s on par
With the greats, intellect razor sharp
(Bridge)
Snedegar’s on the rise, no stopping now
From the halls of academia to the streets, wow
With every thesis, every paper, he astounds
Philosopher extraordinaire, his wisdom resounds
(Outro)
So raise your glasses to Snedegar, the thinker
In a world full of noise, he’s the eloquent speaker
From ancient texts to modern theories, he’s the seeker
H to the Izzo, V to the Snedegar, we keep it deeper.
