Now I have got a voice and it's the voice you’re hearing now
Leaving you the only choice to adhere or tune it out
To the message that I’m speaking and the Providence I’m after
But I am not a leader I’m a rapper
The song is still about knowing who you are before you can say “no” to who you are, and how at some point you will find you are nothing without providence.
This part of the chorus is meant to remind the listener that the author is just a rapper, not a leader. It’s important to maintain this idea throughout, as just following the words would in itself go against what the song is about.
This is also why the song is so metaphorical, it’s aim is to give just enough so that there is a purpose to the song, but not enough so that it tells you the whole story, the listener is there to build it’s own details.
