The come up at by night, ridin' Elijah the comet (uh)
“Elijah the comet” is Elijah Muhammad, the protege of Fard Muhammad from the previous line.
The comet also points to Fard’s supposed divinity (and Elijah’s presence as his messenger) and that he came from space (heaven). The “night” ride also suggests that Jay is going to strike when we least expect it.
That Jays rides the comet (Elijah Muhammad) would suggest that he incorporates the Nation of Islam’s teaching into his lyrics, which he certainly does.
