I like Horus, I don't like whores

from Flatbush Zombies – 222 Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Displaying Flatbush’s eclectic brand of philosophy, Erick references the Egyptian diety Horus. One of the oldest and most important gods in Egyptian mythology, Horus was often depicted with the head of a falcon. There is a double entendre on “eye like Horus”, as the eye is Horus’s most distinguishable feature.

Flatbush makes it clear that they are more concerned with the philosophical side of life, not the hedonistic tendencies of their peers. Note that the words “Horus” and “whores” sound very similar but represent two very different principles.
