Meaning we want it to stay
Like the governor called and he told him to wait
Unstrap him from the chair and put him back in his cage
When an execution is delayed through legal means, the convict is granted a “stay”
Lupe uses this information for an extended metaphor, and wants his fame to be granted longer life by the public
And he is referring to MYH saying that while he has to wait for heaven/hell to make his decision, he gets put back in his old environment, the streets (his cage).
