I'm the best since he died, and he lied We Got It For Cheap (Intro) by Clipse

Referring to a rapper who was considered the best before his death. Biggie being the most likely scenario for who ‘he died’ may refer to considering that several references have been made across their albums and Re-Up Gang mixtapes. The “he” who lied is Lil' Wayne who released the track “Best Rapper Alive” on his 2005 album Tha Carter II. The Clipse had beef with Wayne during this time and this line is a lyrical jab.

The preacher at the altar to tell you to have a taste Animal by Travis Scott (Ft. T.I.)

This is a reference to the common Christian practice of partaking in the Holy Communion where parishioners drink Wine and eat bread to commemorate the death of Jesus Christ. However, Travi$ is playing with the idea and using the Eucharist as a reason to drink and party. One of Scott’s most prevalent themes is the balance between religious consciousness, the sinful nature of man, and how both forces intertwine in hip hop culture.

Pastor said that we gotta move to congregation
I'm looking for salvation but I'm drowning in the revelations
12 Disciples by Travis Scott

The lessons learned from church still float in Travis' mind but he is unable to resolve them with his inner passions. He admits he wants to be saved but he can’t get past the demons in his mind and more literally can’t get past the fear of condemnation promised to the wicked in the Book of Revelations of the Bible.

The balance between Religious/Moral teachings and raw human desire comes up quite a bit in Travi$ Scott’s music and visuals.
