My chariot's on fire
Play on the name of 1981 hit movie Chariots of Fire about a Jewish athlete running to overcome prejudice
Like Jay-Z’s car, a LITERAL flaming chariot attracts a lot of unwanted attention from haters
In the Bible, Elijah was ascended into Heaven in a Chariot of Fire. He was a prophet of God that was persecuted by the masses for his message and Jay is most likely drawing that comparison as well with this line. 2 Kings Verses 1-12.
