Yeah, yeah
Left to right

Niggas gather round, we about to feast
Boy, get your hands off the table, you can have a seat
Blood won’t you talk to your homie, think he in on it?
Hold up, I ain't got nothing to do with it, I put 10 on it
Yea, playboy got the shank, he gon poke him up, ay
Don’t be talkin’ behind my back, say that to both of us
Look, middleman chillin', say somebody gonna kill him
What? We been with you since day one, from here to the ceiling
Wait, wait, back, back, both of y’all get out your feelings
Eh, whatchu tryna say? Big man why you trippin’?
We can’t cross you, you know that’s the Lord, that’s religion
Ain’t no flaw in our mission, why you think somebody snitching?
Yeah, police probably canvassed it but that don’t mean they planned the hit
Cuzzo like who’s man is this? We running with a pacifist
I see y’all in that corner like y’all plotting on and planning shit
Thought y’all was a fan of this, I put y’all in my manuscripts

Hey look at what I gave you, enough bread to go around
I told you I can save you, my head will bear the crown
But you tried to slay me and play me like a clown
I was gonna pick you up, you wanna lay me down

Last supper, at that last supper
At that last supper
Last supper, man, that last supper
Man, that last supper

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.
