Jesus Christ and Shawn Carter are my only idols
Ab-Soul has only looked up to Jesus Christ and Shawn Carter (Jay-Z) as role models in his life. He has even commented on some of his favorite Jay lyrics right on RG. Check it out!
The line can also be linked, though probably not purposely, to a previous line he had on Illuminate where he said he feels as though he could run laps around Jay-Z — metaphorically speaking, of course.
This line also plays off of the first line where Ab-Soul refers to himself as a “shaman”. People who practice Shamanism do not worship any types of gods or idols, other than nature itself. Figuratively speaking, Ab-Soul is saying that the only idols he has are Jesus Christ and Shawn Carter, because they have been very influential in his life.
