Bismillah ir Rhman ir Raheem
{In The Name Of God, The Most Merciful, The Most Compassionate}

from Yasiin Bey – The Boogie Man Song Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Mos Def (now Yasiin Bey) is Muslim, and has had a tradition of beginning his albums with a quiet prayer/tribute. These words are often said by Muslims before beginning good deeds, or things which will better the world, essentially receiving Allah’s blessing before beginning something. His debut album Black On Both Sides begins this way too.
