I think there's a lot of interesting things to discuss in there. Perhaps when I'm not feeling too sleepy and after Uni tomorrow.

"I got a vessel (?) from embezzling. Good heavens And they say I lost it in '97 I'm about to start using Mexicans, Not cuz they better than Just cuz I get si senor Now I need more. With chicks from Singapore Bunk beds with Tonio's Tall room colonial's Still testimonial So I keep it.. secret In the kitchen, in the cabinet In the jar where the grease is L-U-P speaks it Till it's pieces Peanut butter like, Always been the quiet cat Not the meanest muthaf***er type. You find him grand plus (?) I be buffing brass knucks Best listen to your dawgs Get (no idea here) stand up What? Ahead of my time; Failed History Passed Chemistry. Quiet lines in Quinines My energy Always be weaponry to unload While there's people to hold up Reputations to uphold I'm gung ho with the wide lines Not the type that divides traffic But the kind that reminds addicts Automatic, tilt your (missed this)...." Kinda bored with this now, but I think you get the Singapore/Tonio line. I think he meant "Antonio" and shortened it like he shortened "Merry-Go's" and "Knucks". He did mention Mexico before it and continues with something about colonial. Perhaps a towering colonial master?

Sorry about the typos fellas, quite vs quiet lol. Good catch on the Ritz/wrist makes sense too...I think I'll go with that. With chicks from Singapore from bunk beds (not sure what he says here..) - I HAVE NO IDEA toniol, tony yo..... No idea either I was think he might of had a sibling named Tony-o??? I know its a stretch haha. I appropriate everyone's input!!

"What's in your pockets my profits, Foxes pick me up like chop sticks, this hotness, they wanna put me boxes like chocolates...that's nonsense, Nothin' sweet about this but the hotel room Presidential like the wrist (Presidential Rolex)" corrections - 1st line - what's in your pockets? my PROPHETS/PROFITS (...hes too good) 3rd line - hotel room presidential like the RITZ/WRIST (Ritz Carlton, NY... watch Home Alone 2 lost in New York, they mention President Hoover staying there)... LUPE SICK!!!!!!

Cos sign on what Ian 100% one of my favorite tracks, but your guess on those lines are as good as mine. There's always been some I just never got, but - Ya hopefully hand of the Land Rover keys - I'm pretty sure it's Ya hopefully hand over the Land Rover keys None of them close to me, my poetry poison til' they posing me and little kids poking me openly (guessing open casket viewing at his funeral?) - Pretty sure that's right, that's what I always thought it meant anyway Who's(is) conscience'(conscience MC) who's not the one to confront' - I think it goes like "Whose conscience is? not the one to confront". Right after he says conscience the beat drops and it makes it hard to hear what he says, so I really don't know lol. Never rental get mine freeway like Van wyck (Van Wyck expressway, New York) - I always thought it was "my freeway" but I think you're right. I'm just quoting this line because it's my favorite one, the first time I heard it was I was like WHATT how this nigga lupe know about the van wyck I drive on it everyday lol ! With chicks from Singapore from bunk beds (not sure what he says here..) - I HAVE NO IDEA toniol, tony yo..... Always being a quite cat not the meanest motherf**ker type - quiet not quite (Not sure what he says here) I'd be buffin' brass Knucks - I've always thought he said something along the lines of "If you find a gram plus(+) I'd be buffin brass knucks", but yeah. quite nines in Quinine - quiet nines and quinine --- Good looks on the lyrics again Kenny. There used to be a video on youtube called Lupe Fiasco - Ooh, it had the picture of him jumping off the wall and it was on there from like 2006ish till somewhere last year when it was taken down. Shame cause it had thousands of views and hundreds of comments on it, all wasted now..

nIANja909's picture

Yes, when retards feel the need to break down ultra simple shit I've already expressed my appreciation for, I find it insulting to my intelligence indeed.
TheTruth's picture

Uh huh there you have it!

Lol the hyperbole in your rebuttal is foolish at best Luwhoelse. If posting your accomplishments on the net isn't necessary why'd you do it in the first place? Ian's hardly "flipping out" though (as said earlier) its more like a mockery... and if he comes off as being an airhead try thanking yourself for that.
TheTruth's picture

Showing off my ''wits'' why the hell would I want to do that on a public forum with ppl I do not know. I'm not no attention seeking low life like you are. My post was pointless? Say it was pointless, that's it don't go around insulting people. Mature a little.

lol

so how about them ooh lyrics lol
nIANja909's picture

And by the way, that was hardly a respectable "break down". Which was the point of my initial response. It was stupid and unnecessary to add a couple "( )" on 1 line of the lyrics I posted. Had he just been like "Yeh I thought it was clever how he said that" I'd have no problem. He was obviously attempting to show off his "wits", probably to show everyone he really isn't a retard because he can "break down" such simple lyrics. Which...again, nobody needed him to do.
nIANja909's picture

hardly "flipping out". More like, pointing out the irrelevance and stupidity of a post in a mild manner. And no bro, thinking that you can post on the internet how you're finishing up med school would gain you any sort of credibility to defend a pointless post, is not "succeeding". Ok, I guess maybe for you it is, seeing as how that's probably the closest you'll ever come to it. If only prestigious titles and "advanced" education taught people common sense, then maybe you would be in a "better position". Not hating, just pointing out the obvious. You don't have to get mad bruh.

Wow because someone just took the lyrics you wrote and broke them down, you flipped out over nothing? seriously ? Who cares if he broke it down, no need to get all pissy over it christ its like you love to start shit with people. people make irrelevant posts all the time dosent mean you've gotta trash talk their a** everytime.
TheTruth's picture

Wow, your a low life, a loser, don't hate on people because they're in a better position to succeed than you. Get a life.

Now now Ian, you know majority of these stans are afflicted with a chronic disease seen in most music today. This Luphoria is a strain of the hallucenogen known as "Gigantimus Phallic Ridery". These poor souls have a condition thats all Ian, instead of bashing them for their illness we need to uplift the people and work with their diagnosis. Otherwise our words fall on deaf ears... but fuck ExposingTheWicked that nigga is dumb as hell lol. "Give em shirts they can strain spaghetti wit" Knockin is a coolish track I still think "What It Do" is one of Lu's Top 10 songs.
nIANja909's picture

Nobody needed your breakdown of those lines is all I'm saying. Why you felt the need to make such an irrelevant post is beyond me, considering how intelligent a guy you are almost being finished with medical and all. You'll be the biggest dumb ass to ever perform a medical operation I'm sure, congrats.
TheTruth's picture

Nianja909 no one said you couldn't break down those lines, haha and quite frankly you don't even need to be ''smart'' to break that down it's pretty simple. And as far as I'm concerned I'm almost finished with medical so I do consider myself smart. Stop talking shit.
