God by nature, mind raised in Asia
Since you was tricked, I have to raise ya
From the cradle to the grave
But remember - you're not a slave
Referencing the teachings of the Five Percent Nation:
Five Percenters believe the black man is God and refer to him as the Afro-centric Asian.
Someone who is “tricked” is part of the 85%; the 10% are deceiving.
The Nation stressed self-empowerment and reject physical and mental slavery.
