Believe it or not, I'm gon' spit it till they strip me
Crown me with thorns
March me up the hill crucifix me then ditch me
The rest is all mystery

Meaning

Robert LeRoy Ripley, creator of the Ripley’s Believe it or Not! franchise. This series is famous for showcasing odysseys from around the planet. Jay is saying that he plans to carry the stigma of being a true emcee, which may seem hard to swallow.

He prophesies that he will do this until the people do him like they did Jesus of Nazareth, by ridiculing him and trying to send him to his deathbed. They will then ditch, and what happens from there is anyone’s guess.

Note: Jesus won
