    It dropped / leaked / whatevered. Either way, it's out there.

     

    Pretty meh imo, but that's just me. Was hoping for more, not only in the next I've heard from Lu, but also in a BoB & Lu collab. Oh well.

I think B.o.B is dope. He has a good ear for melodies and this song right here is simple and melodic and still intricate and rhythmic because of Lupe's verse.

havent listened to it, waiting to buy Bobs cd, LM B.oB didnt produce any of the songs on his album himself, thats whack! his best work was the stuff he did on his own...

THIS SONG IS FUCKIN ILL! Crazyy Intricate... even the mentioning of rick ross...and T.I. And the whole chain metaphor is dope.

albums leaked now - alrady heard half the songs but its stilll pretty good. disspaointed that bob didnt produce any of it all himself, but the end results are cool

The line: "the black and the white one, i begin then i master" Is not only a karate reference, he is also saying that once he starts something he masters it. He doesn't take the baby steps toward mastering something.

@ ct i think the tip the scales line is a reference to weight as in drugs

im listenin to the song right now( listening not hearing), and i think its great. the theme is nice and original the sound is COOL!!!!(in my lupe voice) and as always the lyrics are of the highest quality

Wow... CT, I'm copping the song now. I overlooked lines that I thought where simple. The line "i'm a slave to myself i just obey my boss" I think could refer to his relationship with his record label. I think he is saying that he is slave to no one but himself and it also could allude to how he is promoting his album via Steppin Lasers Tour without the help of Atlantic. I really did get amazed when I caught that chain he tossed lol

the black and the white one, i begin then i master" (Karate reference) "they say what im seeing through is false like Ross" (rick ross was accused of wearing fake Louis Vatton shades many times) "I can hear them thru the walls like walk, this way"... See More (The run Dmc song walk this way, and in the video they has two sides of music on diff sides of the wall) "im a slave to myself i just obey my boss" (simple line but catch all the slave references throughout the song. MASTER, SLAVE, CHAIN, HANG) "Its all in disarray this parade i walk, they get amazed when they catch a chain i toss, amidst this array of different ways i talk, and it hangs from your brain if my chain you caught" (The parade in my eyes is the rap game he saying its in disarray its out of order because the lames like waka flocka get more radio play than a guy like Lupe. The rappers are the center of attention and fans all watch as they go by. The chains are Lupes lines. When you catch one of lupes lines its pretty amazing (like this im explaining now lol) but also in parades (mardi gras) when you catch an actual chain ppl get excited. and hangs from your brain is simply you remember it.) "like i cough without covering my mouth" (catch lupes lines like you catch something when somebody doesnt cover their mouth) "I tip the scales like the king of the south" (tip meaning T.I.P. aka T.I. aka the king of the south. but T.I. is a skinny guy and if he were on a balancing scale? his side woulld be higher than alot of ppls because there is not alot of weight. so i assume this is Lupe saying he is above other rappers who would be lower on the other side of the scale.) "forgot that i was fat i lost my way (weight)" (another reference to being light and higher on a scale saying he lost weight.) "back looking for the shade i sought, not Wonders (Stevie), Scott summers, so dont make me take off my stunners" shades it shoots a red beam everywhere and murders everything. So its best not to take off his shades)

I don;t like how the song is layed out Lupe got his lyrics on this one but, I think B.o.B's parts coulda been a lot better
Noa The Ruler's picture

I would have put the song on my MP4 if the chorus was better. Lupe and B.o.B did alright on their verses and nothing more. I did like how Lupe delivered his lines, but as far the lyrics it's nothing near his best. Overall the song was nothing spectacular.

"Lupe's verse was very deep and clever" Please remove thine self, from thine thread. How come OP's can't delete comments in their threads -_-

Lupe's verse was very deep and clever, after a few listens I love the song...minus the chorus. Both rappers did their thing on the song.

vv It's growing on me slowly, good chill song. But come on you guys overhype everything lol. Lupe's verse was cool but ehhh.
nIANja909's picture

Other boards I go to guys are showin a lot of interest too. I honestly don't get how people think it's good quite frankly. It was pretty un-remarkable throughout for me.
