They say Candyman, Candyman, spit me a dream
A reference to the movie Candyman, in which people would say candyman 3 times in a dark room and the horrific Candyman would appear out of nowhere to slice you in half. Candyman 2 took place in new orleans. The movie touched on the building of a city upon graves and also to the slavery roots in general. This is a slick rhyme. Jay Electronica is claiming to be an equally fearsome and evil presence
Is Jay confusing Candyman with Mr. Sandman?
This is also a reference to the place he was born: New Orleans, and its nickname, The Chocolate City
This is very likely a reference to Willy Wonka, whom he just sampled, as well
