There's a meaning to the kissin' of the ring
The gods don't mingle with the mortals
Peasants ain't sittin' with the kings
Goliath ain't worried 'bout your sling
And Cassius ain't bothered by your swings
He uses incredible imagery to describe his current status in the rap game…Only Push can keep his fans refreshing the same page for 2 hours. Multiple references in this one!
Kissing the ring is a sign of respect, Pusha doesn’t call himself King Push for nothing. He wants people to kneel.
As a God he doesn’t need to spend time with mere mortals. The same goes for peasants and kings — it never happens.
A comparison to the great warrior Goliath who although was defeated by David was the greatest of his kind — just like Pusha. Pusha is the Goliath of the drug (and rap) game and he isn’t worried about what anyone else is “slinging” be it drugs or music
A further reference/comparison to Muhammad Ali who was born Cassius Marcellus Clay, Jr. Even though rappers like Lil Wayne are taking shots — Push calls them weak and wants to hear more before even considering name dropping
