Like my songs carrying the clubs like Bagger Vance

from Lupe Fiasco – Absolute Freestyle Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

In the 2000 movie “The Legend of Bagger Vance” the title character, played by Will Smith, is a ghostlike figure who mentors a down-and-out golfer played by Matt Damon while serving as his caddy. The film has been widely derided for its insensitive treatment of race.

The wording here is deliberately ambiguous — his songs “carry” the clubs, meaning support them, because so many people go there just to hear his music. But his songs also pack heat — as he has explained above — so they are like thugs who “carry in the clubs,” i.e. bring weapons.
