If you read the post you would know that I didn't say, "I know the drug game." I knew someone would come in here and say something about "me not knowing anything." That's why I decided to quote other rappers, so you really can't say I don't know anything because I'm not the primary source. And the things I did say I know are common knowledge, I don't think I'm smart. But feel free to bash me, but if you think you can explain it better go ahead.


And it's obvious you didn't read the "rolling" paragraph because I clearly said, " I don't know what Lupe is talking about here." All I know is, what ever he was talking about, "he got better at it."
This tells me all I need to know.........most of the lames who post in here get all their street sense from music and still dont know schitt. And that goes for the dude who quoted you also. BTW Roller=drug dealer

Had to laugh first because the statement above is true. Yeah, it really sounds more like just surviving in life going through it all. Good song though.

okay for you f*gs sayin that i found this out today or something should probably know that the reason i started this thread is because skateboarding dudes in the metro thought the song was just about skateboarding. then, i was talking about it with random friends for the next four hours or so until I got home and posted this. so..

Isn't it obvious? Maybe it's because i've followed 's music since I first heard 'tilted' on Need for Speed 4. Dude wouldn't make his first single JUST about skateboarding. I agree about the multiple interpretations thing, but I'm sure the song is his autobiography when he used to hustle. What more clever way to do that than to turn it into a skateboarding song and make it his first introduction to the world. Lupe is cold

GTFOh I really wish I was on, as a rapper, so PPL can make my rhymes deeper than I actually intended them to be.. PPL do this with Jay too!

Its like if I made a song about s**tting on the toilet my fans would say its a metaphor for global warming. haha Gtfoh


Only in being not straight forward and un practical or vague in your rhymes can You then be viewed as deep and thoughtful as u can in rap and poetry.


And Im not dissing Lupe but Stating the simple, Complex can lead to the gross misinterpatation of an apparent song about skateboarding suddenly transformed into American Gangster inside the minds of their listeners.

but ol boy said that lupe in an interview said it was about a dude from a skate shop in Milwaukee. some times yall be reaching. this reminds of this famous poet who was being interviewed about one of his master works. this one poem had been analyzed by scholars and they had all these deep interpretations. they read some of it to him and he didnt even know what they were talking about. turns out the true meaning was really simple. wish i could find that. point is. leave it up to your interpretation UNLESS the artist explicitly explains the meaning. which....one of you guys said already happened....so.....

Let me give you my interpretation of the lyrics.
------------------------------------------------------------------------


He started when he was young, and he wasn't good at "grinding." First time he tried, he slipped. Now I don't know why he "slipped and busted his lip," some older kids could have stuck him up. You remember in Boyz N Da Hood, when those older kids took the football from those kids. I'm guessing he was put in one of them situations. These lines are hard to translate to hustling, but some lines have "hustling" written all over them.



Remember in Biggie's song Juicy, when Biggie said, "this song is dedicated to all the people that lived above the buildings that I was hustlin' in front of that called the police on me when I was just tryin' to make some money to feed my daughters?"



Remember when Big L said, "On 139 and lennox ave. there's a big park, and if you're soft. don't go through it when it gets dark?"


The word "roller" was a dead give away. When has a skateboarder referred to themselves as becoming a better "roller." Now "roller" could mean anything, he became a better "weed roller," a "high roller," I just know that word has more meaning to it. All we know is, he got better at what he was doing.

Now that he's better, he got a girl, his girl is clapping in the crowd because she likes what he does. This is similar to most drug trade stories, you start off a nobody and then you work you way up the ladder.



You starting to see the picture? He has a crew now.



Remember Rick Ross had the hit song, "Push It." He was talking about moving (selling) cocaine. The word "push" is commonly used in the Hip Hop genre as a reference to selling drugs. These guys got so big, it wasn't safe to sell in the buildings, maybe the cops were on to them. This is similar in the skate world, if you sell/skate some where for too long, it's only a matter of time until you're noticed, and being harassed.



Remember when Biggie said, "She was forced to kick me out, no doubt, then I figured out Nick's went for twenty down south"" When thing got crazy in their own place, they found better grinds, Biggie's grind was heading down south, he could buy from upstate and go down south to double or triple his money.

That's just a quick break down, but it gets much deeper, at least that's what I got out of the picture. But only Lupe can break every line down. But I wouldn't be surprised if some line are just thrown in randomly just to make a good song, he's definitely comparing both world.
lmao i dont know if u know this or not but skatin in alot of public areas is illegal,thats y they out at nite

lmao my stomach is hurtin

yo,u dont have to be slangin drugs to push lol.some of us like to do a thing called push-ups.u can push cds,u can push a nice car,or in lupe's case,u can push a skateboard.
for tha hood impaired push just means movin.

do i get a pass for knowing it was a metaphor for something, i just thought it was going through life. I know it's not about drug dealing, its Lupe, lets be serious. The dude would've died at the end of the story if that was the case.

I can't take Boxden members' opinions about the drug game serious, because they are broke. A rapper has more creditability than you. Unless you're a crackhead, go play Frisbee.

Eh... from day one I thought it was a metaphor for a drug dealers rise in the hustle game. Then about a month later I saw it as a metaphor for the come up, which could apply to basically anything. That was damn near 3 years ago mind you......

Threadstarter you wrong for this thread.
