My role model was Wilt
The whole line should be annotated and highlighted. It makes no sense in making two parts to a short lyric
just noticed my suggestion was edited and taken off. I put a lot of thought into that line </3
“I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.” John 8:12
God’s majesty and love shines on all who are willing to follow him and obey him. DMX recalls how many times God saved him from trouble and guided him when no one else would, and loved him when he had so much hate in his life.
He also sampled James Blake’s “The Wilhelm Scream
The Prison bus is one of the most figurative and complex parts of the song. It can mean anything. One of the meanings could mean the direction of the world
When you’re going to jail typically you go on a bus or van. The jail would symbolize the imminent demise of our failing society; where we all would go due to our ignorance and lack of ambition and motivation to be original and be a LEADER not a follower. The Prison bus could symbolize the direction of our world (ONE WAY). the singer is probably stating that he will choose a new life and add something positive and original to this world. He doesn’t want to end up like the rest. So he is “Breaking in” into his soul and building up enough motivation and strength to “check out” of the way of the world.
Three Strikes Laws are statutes enacted by state governments in the United States which mandates state courts to impose harsher sentence on persons convicted of three or more serious criminal offenses. In most jurisdictions, only crimes at the felony level qualify as serious offenses. Depending on the seriousness of the felony, the sentence can range from a minimum of 25 years to a maximum of life imprisonment (typically the defendant is given the possibility of parole with a life sentence). Twenty-four states have some form of habitual offender law.
The name comes from baseball, where a batter is permitted two strikes before striking out on the third.
The three strikes law significantly increases the prison sentences of persons convicted of a felony who have been previously convicted of two or more violent crimes or serious felonies, and limits the ability of these offenders to receive a punishment other than a life sentence. Violent and serious felonies are specifically listed in state laws. Violent offenses include murder, robbery of a residence in which a deadly or dangerous weapon is used, rape and other sex offenses; serious offenses include the same offenses defined as violent offenses, but also include other crimes such as burglary of a residence and assault with intent to commit a robbery or murder.
So basically Lil B is on the verge of going to jail (He has two strikes) He will lyrically “Kill” and “rob” joey of all pride and his ego (STRIKE 3!!!!)
It can also mean a bullet entering into your forehead and exiting the through the back
