[Verse 1]

from A$AP Rocky – Phoenix Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

The title of this track is called Phoenix. The Phoenix as a symbol can be interpreted in this song in multiple ways including:

  1. Rebirth, Renewal, and, Resurrection- It could be that this album is christening A$AP Rocky’s rebirth/renewal/resurrection as an artist, musician, and person.
  2. Jesus Christ- Jesus rose from the dead after dying for the sins of others. This is a motif that’s hinted in the entire album with A$AP Rocky calling himself “Lord” and “Messiah”.
  3. Fire- A$AP Rocky is on fire. You can’t lie about that.
  4. Cycles- As it will be mentioned in the beginning of verse 1 and verse 2, A$AP Rocky talks about the deaths of two important musicians because of scrutinizing. The same has and will continue to happen to A$AP Rocky making it a never ending cycle just like the Phoenix’s life and death cycle. It’s easy to see that this is a major subject.
