Tears on the mausoleum floor
Blood stains the Colosseum doors

from Kanye West (Ft. Frank Ocean & Jay Z) – No Church in the Wild Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

These lines could compare the King’s death to the death of those beneath him. Kings have mausoleums built in their honor upon death, while men who die in Colosseums merely provide entertainment.

Perhaps like Jay’s “What More Can I Say?”, this line is influenced by the film Gladiator.

A “mausoleum floor/colosseum doors” rhyme was first spit by Pusha T as a freestyle written for his song “Blow/Funk Flex Freestyle” off of his mixtape Fear of God.
