Mine, that my very first ancestors were front row and present
When God stepped to the mic
when he says “My ancestors” he gives this line more of a personal relationship.
It can be assumed by “My Very First Ancestors” he means, black people, and that he believes that black people were the “Very First”
He speaks as God to be the MC of the universe and that when he “stepped to the mic” (or began creation) black people were right there during the whole process.
