I'm God-son, son of man, son of Marcus Garvey

from Wu-Tang Clan (Ft. Nas) – Let My Niggas Live Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

These are all diffirent ways of saying he is Jesus/messiah.

Nas has explained that we are all gods children, but this line it confirms that he is Jesus/messiah since jesus is often referred to as son of man.

Garvey was unique in advancing a Pan-African philosophy to inspire a global mass movement and economic empowerment focusing on Africa known as Garveyism. Promoted by the UNIA as a movement of African Redemption, Garveyism would eventually inspire others, ranging from the Nation of Islam to the Rastafari movement (which proclaims Garvey as a prophet).

If he is his son, Nas is the next black leader, some rastas even believe Garvey to be messiah. Nas is Messiahs kid or the return of messiah. Tieing to the next line: Rastafari …


Ties to the first lines: why did you do this to me? I´m you son!
