Canvas paintings of the Ayatollah
And on his arm he wore a priceless vulture

from AZ (Ft. Nas) – Mo Money, Mo Murder, Mo Homicide Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

‘Lay Low’ is into flashy jewelry and has paintings to show his admiration for Antti Isotalo [1831-1911], a Finnish farmer and ruthless criminal gang leader.

Nas meant Ayatollah. Lay-low had canvas paintings of Ayatollah Khomeini in his place. He is really rich to have things of that sort.
