My 16s free y'all, I'm Hip-Hop's Abe Lincoln

from Joell Ortiz – Battle Cry Lyrics on Rap Genius


In just one line Joell expresses 2 metaphors. By sayin his 16(the usual amount of bars in a verse) free you, he means that his lyrics liberate you like Abe Lincoln with the Emancipation Proclamation.

Let’s not forget that Lincoln was the 16th president of the USA. Yep, Joell is that sick!
