Back to take over the globe, now break bread

from Jay Z – Encore Lyrics on Rap Genius


“Breaking bread” is biblical; it is performed during communion or “as aften as ye gather in my name” — Jesus in rememberance of Christ. Jay says to break bread for his return, similar to that of Christ, to take over the Globe during his rap career’s “encore”.

The line justifies the Christian reference, Takeover is also a song by Jay in which he calls himself the God MC.
