    could be directed, but usually when rappers make those types of lines like their superior rap skills helped others, I think they supposed to be rhetorical.

    ^^yeah i would think its just ghost bragging.
    The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of men who suppress the truth by their wickedness, since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse. (Romans 1:18-20)

    I know who he's talking to, he's talking to man,

    as GOD,

    saying , "Im the niggan that made you man."

    then when he says "when you raps wasn't doing well,
    I'm the niggah that gave you an hand"

    He's referning to the quote in the Quran when God teaches man the name for all the things in exestence, and then has man come back and pronounce it.

    I'm pretty sure thats what the Quran verce says, or it could be that God taught to the angels the names of all the things in heaven and earth.

    Another example of when Ghost says such a thing is when he says on clap,

    "taught yall niggas how to (forgive me for using the N word) rap, remburse me"


    again he's reffering to how god taught man all the names of things and then had man recite it so as to give praise to the father.

    Ghostface lyirics are like that, where he can be talking about some mundane rap shit, like record labels and cokain, and at the same time manifest some parralell in divine significance.

    Like when he said, "velored down like the sheik of iran gasoline cream rapped in hospitol bands"-- and earlirier before that he says, "feet made of brass" its a reference to the book of reveleations a charachter in the book of revlaations whosle eyes are said to be like fire, and hes all in a white shrowd, in a cirlcle with like 7 candles lit or some thing. Before all of that he says,

    NOW ITS REVELATIONS spoken through rap on the song GHOSTdini, or whatever from Supreem Clientell, and then on Hollow bones, he says, "had the gem star on my hand what the fuck yo thats when i ripped timothie...bing bogglede dung"--

    any of yall can explain what the GHOST ment? Is he claiming to be the guy in the book of revlelations or like him or what?
