See me on the streets address me stone bringer Deadly Melody by Wu-Tang Clan (Ft. Streetlife)

An ambiguous line, may be a double entendre.

1) Since “stone” refers to drugs, U-God is slangin' rock or selling drugs.

“stay flyin' over Egypt”
He could be referring to himself as a bringer of ancient knowledge, which would have been written on stone tablets or walls.
