The pastor speaking here is disgraced Fundamentalist Baptist megachurch preacher Jack Schaap.
Watch the video from which the sample was taken here:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NqN9Oan3YnU
He was widely lambasted for sharing these views throughout the media. Not long after sharing them, Schaap was arrested and given 12 years for having sex with an underaged girl.
Here is a documentary called “Profaned Pulpit” that details Schaap’s rise to fall.
Sage is quoting Schaap here to show how very outmoded, gallingly sexist ideas are still very prevalent. A bit of a straw man, but hey, that straw man got a pretty good comeuppance.

Just as wise Dr. Frankenstein made his monster, Sage made B. Dolan a monster when he signed him to Strange Famous.
Who says a lather and a blade can’t do that?http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4F7TMlrDXtw
Clever line. Sage is an atheist rapper, and so doesn’t have the burden of being Christian. He can’t be pigeonholed so easily.
Interestingly, Providence, where Sage comes from, is the “least Bible-minded town in America”, according to the American Bible Society.

It’s hard to keep a straight face with Botox.
Oh, and yes, Botox parties are real.
There are only two families in the world, the Haves and the Have Nots.
—Miguel de Cervantes
Sage plays on the idiom “haves and have nots,” which refers to the rich and the poor and the ever-widening gap between the two. In fact, Oxfam recently released a report stating that SEVEN DOZEN rich people own as much as 3.5 BILLION poor people.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QPKKQnijnsM#t=72
Sage takes this idea further by stating that there’s more distance than ever between the educated and the uneducated. This distance can be attributed to the haves being able to afford college education and the have nots not being able to afford such an education, but also refers to those who choose to educate themselves and those who choose not to. He rapped a similar line on “Slow Down Gandhi”.
With drones in the sky and the NSA using seeking devices to monitor devices, who even are “the police” anymore? WHO ARE WE SUPPOSED TO HATE?!
Sage is no cop killer — he admits he knows there are good cops out there, but he still won’t trust them. Sage’s been taught well by Wu-Tang and Jasriti.
