I came into rap carrying the south on my back

from Jay Electronica – So What You Saying Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

He’s a southern rapper repping the South, a region that’s mostly known (now, anyway) for producing mediocre rappers. Though, it’s also given us Outkast, and Scarface.

Jay is very prideful about his Southern roots.

Representing the South, to Jay, is akin to Jesus hoisting the very cross he was crucified on.
