Yeah just my army
Lookin for my army
Cause your my army
Lookin for my army girl

[Verse 1:Lupe Fiasco]
Smarter than a mug, heart full of love
Mine feeling me, mine feeling hers
My zone is the home of the cubs
Westside where I reside
Just a rose that was grown from the mud
My gutta like going to the club
Just fly from her toes to the skull
Your peer pressure well we'll be fine
Insects we be fly
No roaches we deny
Off life how we be high
Rolling like Bun B and queen in ride
Straight edge, great cred, well read, well versed
Like me, love god, Mashallah, go to church

She look so good she from the hood yeah thats my army girl
She got my back we on attack me and my army girl

[Verse 2: Lupe Fiasco]
She got morals, she got ethics
Shes gorgeous, god blessed it
Feeds you breakfast
You do wrong, she corrects it
She be nice and I respect it
Give me space and don't press it
Do her best to leave me stressless
And thats precious, so impressive so I invest it
She is my respiration
When im breathless when the roads rough
She my exit when I came in what I left with
Shes my right now and my next year
She ride we ride

She look so good she from the hood
Yeah thats my army girl
She got my back we on attack
Me and my army girl

Lupe Fiasco

The Chicago born Wasalu Muhammad Jaco first tasted success when he featured on Kanye West’s hit “Touch the Sky”, a track that shortly preceded his real breakout, his 2006 debut album Lupe Fiasco’s Food & Liquor, and he never looked back. He has established himself as one of the greatest urban wordsmiths of all time, with Genius even dubbing him the ‘Proust of Rap’.

While he’s now regarded of one of the 21st Century’s Hip-Hop greats, he wasn’t always a fan of the genre, initially disliking it due to the prominence of vulgarity and misogyny within it. In his late teens, he aspired to make it as a lyricist. In his early twenty’s, he met Jay-Z, who helped him sign with Atlantic Records in 2005. The following year, he released his debut album (Lupe Fiasco’s Food & Liquor), which was met with acclaim from fans and critics alike, as did his sophomore effort, Lupe Fiasco’s The Cool.

The following eight years of his career saw far less output than many would’ve anticipated. This can be partly attributed to his struggles with Atlantic Records. The executives wanted him to sign a 360 deal; however, as he refused to do so they instead shelved his already completed 3rd album, Lasers, and wouldn’t promote him as they had previously. The overseers at the label also interfered with his music (as they had tried to do with his fan-favorite track “Dumb it Down”); subsequently effecting the quality and sound of his third and fourth albums.
