I run the town like Roc Nation, no exaggeration
Bet I rise like Lazarus, use your imagination

from Ab-Soul – Track Two Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Jay-Z’s the owner of Roc Nation and released “Run This Town” back in 2010. Needless to say, sometimes it seems like he runs the industry and that song ran the airwaves, TVs and etc.

Lazarus of Bethany on the other hand is a man from the Bible who Jesus rose from the dead. Metaphorically, Ab compares his rise from the underground to Lazarus', who was buried underground.
