Lucifer, son of the morning! I'm gonna chase you out of Earth

from Jay Z – Lucifer Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

“Lucifer” was originally the light-bearing angel before he pissed off God and was sent to Hell. At the height of his angel career Lucifer was considered to be the morning star.

Isaiah 14:12 “How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning!”

Lucifer (Satan) is being sent out of Earth by Jay-Z because either, Jay-Z is badder than him or he’s a good guy and is the savior — Jay later discusses chasing his demons out of his head.

This is a sample Kanye grabbed from Max Romeo’s 1977 Reggae classic “Chase the Devil.” The original talks about chasing the devil off earth for all of the wrong he/she done to humanity.
