A phrase that comes with Islam, Christianity, and likely more religions around the world. The belief in the higher power does not simply get you into the blessed afterlife, it is also the work you do.

Biblical ex.

James 2:14

14 What does it profit, my brethren, if someone says he has faith but does not have works? Can faith save him?

The verse goes on to explain how faith is not the sole factor getting you into heaven.

Along with the universal theme Mos is going through, expansion is the idea that the universe is constantly expanding ever since the Big Bang Theory took place and that is how we measure time.

paradox

Random implies an unpredictability to the situation…with that, there can be no patterns, orders, or chronology to whatever is about to occur.

She was spinning in the waves of his hair earlier but now she claims to have never believed in the stories of Moses (splitting the Red Sea in half with the staff) and Noah (taking 2 of every animal + his family on an arc he built while the whole world was wiped). She obviously doesn’t trust water…

Breaking bread is from the bible where people who believe in Christ partake in eating bread which exemplifies Christ’s body which was given for us.

Luke 22:19 — And he took bread, and gave thanks, and brake [it], and gave unto them, saying, This is my body which is given for you: this do in remembrance of me.

Important because later in the line, Jay says she let him taste her lips as if it were a literal biting of her lips the way people metaphorically bite into the body of Christ

Stemming from the popular beatitudes in the Bible but changed to fit Timbo’s life

The meek shall inherit the earth
Matthew 5:5

Timbo sees that as him and his G’s taking their earth (the streets) from whoever owns it now (police)

Bronze is a king who doesn’t possess the rings that a flaunting one would have but he’s far more rugged…he’d rather box you in a ring.

Killa’s element is pure war, to even stand within it for a few brief seconds you would need to be strapped up like Rambo

Killa is so precise with his guns (hammers) that he destroys you, the cameras trying to capture footage of it, and anything else…he erases all probability of escaping when he says where you stand is irrelevant

"There when the CIA battled the crack" (Jedi Mind Tricks – The Philosophy of Horror) | pending

definitely “bottled” the crack

I don’t know how this song is published but… Eyes Wide Shut is a movie from the 90’s that has some subtleties in fashion but includes Tom Cruise and Nicole Kiddman during the prime of their careers. The title means “to be conscious but to have a lack of originality or awareness of self”.

It also has a scene dealing with Freemasonry, occult rituals, and the ruling elite.

"The late Richard Simmons" (Jay Electronica – A Million In The Morning) | pending

Richard Simmons was also in the documentary during the 20th hour of the competition.

I think the coupling of the war with Iran/Pakistan along with how Jay feels about religion in this freestyle is meant to exemplify how from the lower individual’s view point it seems a bit chaotic and out of order Tragic, while to the higher ups who control most of the pieces of war…it seems to be Magic to pull something like this off. Like they’re passing on the message that Satan is being killed in religion, the way that propaganda or the government would want you to believe that the war will undoubtedly help us in some way.

Also ties in with the pros vs cons reference later

"When they see it they record it the prophets read it and ..." (Jay Electronica – Nepal Roadside Freestyle) | pending

this mainly speaks to the idea of hope, the way he phrases this line and the next makes it seem like a process that has happened before.
1. they receive prophecy
2. call whatever is prophesied revelatory
3. preacher sings to the people happily
4. slaves go back to work in hopes that it will work
then repeat

should be “a seed out of the sod”

Also keeping to the mobster reference by alluding to the Tommy guns they carried which made similar sounds to RRRRRA

"Understand me / But do the knowledge first, swallow my verse" (Jay Electronica – Something To Hold Onto) | pending

Knowledge is also the 1st in the line of Knowledge, wisdom, understanding….etc. In 5% terms so he could literally mean, do it first
