When I'm deceased, by then the beast arise like yeast
To conquer peace leaving savages to roam in the streets
A reference to the Book of Revelations — Chapter 1 — when the Beast (or the False Prophet) brings the apocalypse to Earth, the “savages” not saved by messiah will be left in the streets.
Here, “the Beast” also refers to the police. Once Nas is gone, the police will be able to run rampant in the community, stirring up violence and confusion.
