Clem is his step father. He mentions him in the song ‘Be a Man’ when he says “had a talk with my step-pops the other day…” and then at the end of the verse he says “clem I love ya, for the record”. Clem and Soul’s mother both punished him when he messed up by taking the things he loved away, a common thing when young.
Ironically enough he’s taking control of those things as an adult.
