So stop, the life you save may be your motherfucking own
Given that this line directly follows the 70s blaxploitation theme, it’s most likely a play on the Jackson 5 lyric “Stop! The love you save may be your own” from their 1970 hit “The Love You Save”.
But there is a gospel song called “The Life You Save May Be Your Own”. GZA could also be referencing this.
Either way, you should think twice before stepping to GZA.
