Torment them with the fire when they raise they head
And I'm sorta just like Elijah cause I raise they dead
The “Elijah” he is referring to is also the Honorable Elijah Muhammad, the Messenger of Allah and Leader of the Nation of Islam. Elijah and his teachings were known to “resurrect” the mentally and spiritually “dead” Black man in America; Jay being one of these men to have been resurrected by his teachings.
another interesting correlation could be made with the Elijah of the Bible
A parallel can be drawn between Jay and Elijah because he raises hip-hop from the dead as Elijah did with the boy, and is returning Rap to an authentic state, i.e., not one filled with the worship of false gods (bullshit rappers), just as Elijah discouraged the worship of the Semitic god, Ba'al (1 Kings 18:30-40).
Elijah also brought down fire from the sky to have God accept a sacrifice (2 Kings 1:9-15)
9 Then the king sent unto him a captain of fifty with his fifty. And he went up to him: and, behold, he sat on the top of an hill. And he spake unto him, Thou man of God, the king hath said, Come down.
10 And Elijah answered and said to the captain of fifty, If I be a man of God, then let fire come down from heaven, and consume thee and thy fifty. And there came down fire from heaven, and consumed him and his fifty.
11 Again also he sent unto him another captain of fifty with his fifty. And he answered and said unto him, O man of God, thus hath the king said, Come down quickly.
