Flippin' pies, readin' fries
I'm advising Kabir, smokin' hash

from Das Racist – Ek Shaneesh Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Himanshu is saying that his poetry skills are so much so that he can advise Kabir, a famous early 16th century poet of the Bhakti movement of Hinduism. He’s known for his description of God as nirguna (without or beyond attributes) and his wit.

His poems often make fun of the fake piousness of religious people—e.g. “If being vegetarian gets you into heaven, then deer would be the first ones there…”

Equally importantly is his embodiment of the Indian syncretic tradition. He was born a Muslim (hence Kabir, one of the 99 names of Allah), but had a Hindu guru. He considered himself “at once the child of Allah and Ram” and was equally revered by Muslims, Hindus and Sikhs.
