And the words put in the wind, coming back like a boomerang
When I take this microphone, point it at the crowd, they start to sing

from Killer Mike – R.A.P. Music Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Here, Mike acknowledges the impact of his lyrics. Once “put to wind,” they are no longer his alone. They are put out there for the world, and they come back to him — he can choose to be positive or negative, but either way, what he puts out will come back to him. This is why Mike chooses to have a positive impact (the theme of this first verse).

This is underscored by the second line, where Mike talks about having an entire crowd recite his lyrics back to him.
