I be out in Marrakesh
Morocco smoking hashish with my fellowship
Marrakesh is the most important of Morocco’s four former imperial cities
- Historic Marrakesh, sacred to Islam.
- Holiday Marrakesh (Gueliz -a suburb) has become, over the last decade, a high-end luxury city for wealthy people and show business stars like Jay and his friend Leo Dicaprio.
His fellowship being possibly his homies/entourage. Using hashish in the rhyme gives the vibe of some potent weed from Arabia..
He calls himself a heretic, someone who doesn’t prescribe to any organized religious doctrine. But Marrakesh is a sacred islamic city out in Morocco. To go deeper, the Moors (black muslims) were the original inhabitants of Morocco. When he says fellowship, yes it means a collective group, but due to the theme of those previous lines, it could be a double entendre alluding to the sacred moorish shriners. The shriners were an exclusive fellowship who would often rock the Fez that symbolized you being an high evolved person with supreme wisdom.
