Like the new Muhammad or the new Marcus Garvey
Or probably, it makes sense why I'm so heavily guarded
Some good allusions here Joey wants to be thought of as a new prophet like Elijah Muhammad was/is of Muslim faith or possibly Marcus Garvey, known as a great entrepreneur/writer/speaker in African Philosophy.
Also can’t help but to make the comparison of him possibly desiring to walk in Jay-Z’s footsteps as JHOVA is also a great entrepreneur/writer/speaker and ironically is also from Brooklyn, the same borough Joey Bada$$ reps. Though he wishes to make a name for himself and therefore decides to brush past acknowledging his hip hop elder.
too much?.. you tell me
