Mayan, Aztec lion
Asiatic Blackman from Zion
Mayan and Aztec are Mesoamerican civilizations known for their apocalyptic beliefs. According to Aztec legend, warriors have the ability to shapeshift into cats. The lion, as the king of the jungle, would be the greatest of all Aztec warriors.
Note that when he says “lion” he samples the MGM lion roar, which also opens the song.
In Five Percenter ideology, Asia is the name for the entire world (not just the one continent) and the Blackman is the original race of men. So the Asiatic Blackman from Zion would be a reference to the Original Man born in the cradle of civilization (Zion)—which would be a Hebrew reference to Jerusalem.
