I'm down with the RZA, got help for the Widow's Son
This is a metaphor to describe Cappaonna’s relationship to the RZA. RZA is the Master Mason and Cappa is bound by honor to help him if he asks for it. i.e. saving him when his life is in danger.
The Widow’s Son reference is a possible comparison of RZA and Hiram Abiff (the Widow’s Son) who is a character who figures prominently in an allegorical play that is presented during the third degree of Craft Freemasonry.
In the story, Hiram Abiff was a chief architect of King Solomon’s Temple. After discovering the sacred treasure, three men tried to force him into revealing the location of the treasure and it’s contents. When he refused they killed him. While being slain, Hiram, with uplifted hands, cried out,
“Oh Lord, My God, is there no help for the widow’s son?”
This has since become a general Masonic distress call.
This phrase, “Oh, Lord, my God, is there no help for the widow’s son?” is the sign/token of a Master Mason in distress; a Mason is bound by honor to come to the utterer’s aid if there is a greater chance of saving the life of the seeker than of losing his own.
