Did Moses not part the water with the cane?

from Kanye West (Ft. Ghostface Killah & Pusha T) – New God Flow Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Abrahamic religious texts hold that an Israelite named Moses led his people out of their decades long enslavement in Egypt; when they came to the Red Sea, Moses placed his staff in the waters and made a path across the ocean floor. When the pursuing Egyptian army tried to follow, Moses brought the Red Sea back down on them

In this line and the three that follow it, Kanye talks about miracles and other religiously themed ideas (Moses, Noah’s ark, being signed by a rap god, making Jesus jewelry)

Also refers back to Pusha’s line “What’s a brick from an outta-town nigga/When you flood and you can drown niggas?”– talking about flooding a market with cocaine. Pusha also compared himself to Kanye’s version of Shyne. Shyne, after jail, changed his name to Moses.

This continues the play on words that represents the meeting of Pusha T and Kanye’s worlds. Mr. West is also called Ye, which is a homonym of Yay, which is slang for cocaine a.k.a caine, which links to Moses' cane. They’re flooding the industry and performing miracles with G.O.O.D Music.

Some of his plaques still say Kayne!
