We don't just shine, we illuminate the whole show
TDE and its affiliates have been shining through their quality, with Ab-Soul using Control System in part to enlighten fans about the ills of society and the government, as well as oft-neglected concepts and ideologies, such as The Ten Sephirot which grace the album’s cover and the pineal gland’s exotic functions. However, unlike Jigga who bought up jewelery thanks his music, Soul just wants to shine through his wisdom and impact.
In reference to Ab-Soul’s knowledge of the Third Eye, it’s also known that the Third Eye’s element is light, and when one opens awakens this chakra, he or she is known to see God and illuminates higher knowledge to everyone around them. So for those who have been enlightened and awakened the Third Eye, they are contributing to the whole universe or “show” in this case.
