The first book of the Bible (which is the religious reference he is making, alluding to the previous religious texts), The Book of Genesis from verse 1-3 says;

In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters. And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light

In The Book of Genesis takes place the story of Adam & Eve in The Garden of Eden.

Also, when Eve bit the apple, the two were kicked out of the Garden of Edan, which at the time was the biggest punishment they could receive. He would be an asshole to go ahead and tell her to bite the apple, knowing full well that she would be kicked out of Edan

"Shout and respect to Lupe Fiasco" (Yasiin Bey – I Don't Like) | accepted

This isn’t relevant to the song

The “respect” factor comes in because they first and foremost are both muslims, and they have the belief of supporting each other as brothers

Second, they both are socially conscious rappers with opinions that are similar

Great explanation, I’m glad you included the Chicago fire. The Streets on fire reference is notable, however the last part in my opinion is a bit of a stretch
