All this is probably Karma, you dishonored the father
Whether it's God almighty, or the almighty dollar
We follow the prophets like Islamics or the Dalai Lama

from Jay Electronica (Ft. J. Cole, Reflection Eternal & Yasiin Bey) – Just Begun Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

no matter what our focus is in life, we strive towards it because of the visions and ideas of those we look up to and then we make them our own. The problem here is that if the focus of the people we follow is wrong, we leave ourselves open to whatever consequences they get.

Also a very clever double entendre: “follow the prophet” (God almighty)/ “follow the profit” (the almighty dollar).
