You gon' be the priest, and I'mma be the preacher

from B.o.B (Ft. Nicki Minaj) – Out of My Mind Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

The difference between a priest and a preacher is that a priest is generally more of a top-down, word-of-god leader, in that he will tell his flock what their duty is, while a preacher is more focused on the power that the people have, emphasizing their strength over their duty.

In other words, a preacher is more inspiring, while a priest is more grounding. This highlights the difference in the styles of B.o.B. and Nicki Minaj.
