Look back, turn to salt like the sinners

from Jay Z (Ft. Freeway) – 8 Miles and Running Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Genesis 18 tells the story of Lot and his wife, who were allowed to escape the sinful city of Sodoma when God destroyed it, on the condition that they didn’t look back. When Lot’s wife turned around anyway, she was turned into a pillar of salt. This is the story Freeway is referring to here.
