All rolled up and there's no lettin up
If you're smart, you'll wanna be the '07 us

Uh, never met a nigga breathin this cold
Bought Chevy's everywhere, 23's 24's
Nuttin' but the best, TV screens on the do'
Gotta get it how you live it when you livin in the go

[LF] Non-stops to Paris ain't cheap
[GS] Sick lake views, big penthouse suites
[LF] Champs-�lys�es is magnifique

Gucci sweats when I'm out in the streets
Linen shorts when I'm chillin on the beach

Idium when I'm out on the mountains
Maharishi when I'm out on the town-end

Spring water, we don't mess with the fountains
Land Rovers back to back when we campin

Felipe Lemonade, police did a raid
We didn't fade, back to the bouncin

Fresh Benz smoke one-eight peel
Speedin down the freeway, we chill-ay chill

Did the food then and it's sill-ay still
Got it off the ground like a wheelied wheel

Uh, you from the Westside?

Born and raised, you from the Southside right?

It's where I spent my days
Where I lay, where I stay
And you ain't gotta wonder why I get my ways


[Lupe Fiasco (Gemstones)]
Free Chill, (we will)
God willing, and I miss him
Was ten at the hand, got the spirit all in him
I cease the billin with the lyrics I'm pennin like

I ain't really trippin cause I know that God's with him
'Til we met again, nigga, free my niggas
Sick with the pen, I'm a beast, my nigga
Let it, new Benz but the 23's don't fit 'em

Uh, and you know you can't red light the green light
Try to break us up, lace it up, keep the theme tight

This lifestyle may get off we don't sleep nights
I'm on the 747s, finna take flight

[LF (GS)]
Yeah, sport car faster than your car
(It's Gemini), and y'all know me
Better together, y'all know the letters
Forever N Forever - FNF U-P


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.
