And if I'm doomed
May the wound help my mother be blessed for many moons
I suffer a lot,
The wound here is a metaphor for the very raps that will earn him lots of money but will also get him killed. No mother ever wants to bury their child, so he hopes his mother will continue to be blessed despite the wound in her heart because her child is dead.
So if he’s truly doomed to die for his bars, at least the money he’s made from them will make sure his mother is taken care of financially when he’s gone. OR let the wound of his death be seen by Jesus as a sacrifice, and for this reason bless his mother for the rest of her life.
This is the weight he carries with him.
