Fuck illuminati lies, say I'm lucified
Baptised in the gutter, motherfucker you decide

from A$AP Rocky – Phoenix Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

“Baptized in the gutter” juxtaposes being baptized (holiness, being cleansed) with something as filthy as a gutter, painting a rather vivid picture. It also introduces the “ghetto gospel” motif that appears later in the verse. Growing up in Harlem, naturally Rocky’s seen the evils of life in the streets, though critics quip that his out-of-this-world style can be chalked up to Illuminati influence. To be “lucified” entails that he’s swayed by the devil, and he’s saying it’s open for interpretation.
