And I stand alone
Half man half idol with a hand of stone
You ask can my recital lead a man to home
On the path to that title seat I am to own
Basically the answers no

from Mr. J. Medeiros (Ft. A Mouse Named Wolf) – Stand Down Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

I am my own man. MC’s get idolized under the assumption they have a secret knowledge of self, one that could lead others.

I see a statue being worshiped, half flesh- half stone- a play on Nas’s line “Half-man, Half-Amazing”.

Can my music lead you to an understanding of yourself, while at the same time I’m on a path to reach fame? No.

The concept here is “stand alone”, on your own two feet- take what makes sense to you from others (regardless of fame) and follow your own path.
