Promoters call me Moses by how I spark and leave
Notice, come through the crowd, my staff parts the sea
Ka makes two Moses-related brags here.
- Ka’s notoriety is “sparking” (increasing, as in a flame) just as how Moses, through God rained hail and lightning and fire on Egypt during the seventh plague of Egypt.
And Moses stretched forth his rod toward heaven: and the Lord sent thunder and hail, and the fire ran along upon the ground; and the Lord rained hail upon the land of Egypt.
- When Ka is bombarded by a sea of fans, his (security) staff makes way for him to come through, just as Moses used his staff to part the Red Sea for the Isrealites' crossing. Or, Ka might just be making an dope metaphor.
21 And Moses stretched out his hand over the sea; and the Lord caused the sea to go back by a strong east wind all that night, and made the sea dry land, and the waters were divided. 22 And the children of Israel went into the midst of the sea upon the dry ground: and the waters were a wall unto them on their right hand, and on their left.
