I know what this means, but I'm not touching this shit. If you really want to know you'd prolly get a good answer in Know The Ledge.

its pretty straight forward. the devil or in this case the white man is the grafted image of the original man, god, or the asiatic black man.

the toy comment refers to the devil's inferiority to the original man.

I was born in a barrel of razor blades
Right next door to haze, I used to be afraid
Of the devil, as a boy, but now as a grown man
I have realized, he is just a toy
A graphic image, I'm that magnificent splendid
Dominant, prominate, Islamic

is what they have on http://www.ohhla.com/anonymous/m_kil...on_god.mkl.txt

so its "I'M" that magnificent splendid"....?

RZA confuses me sometimes with his faith. I've never read the Quran, so that could be a factor. Some of the things he quotes are from the Holy Bible like "a day to God is 1000 years". I just don't know if its in another book too.

From reading the lyrics posted above he's saying the devil is make believe (a toy), and he stays strong in his faith (Islam).

I don't see the white man mentioned anywhere in the verse. Remember RZA says, "every devil ain't pale."

he doesnt have to say it.

if you understand basic 5% ideology you know the white man is considered the grafted germ of the original man which is the asiatic black man.

Rza is part of the Nation of Gods and Earths(5%).
