LOL. Who needs Boxden of all places to break them s**ts down when at the beginning of the song he dedicated it people doing their thing "legally and illegally"? Right off the bat he's giving you context clues. How can people miss that?

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.
do these rappers come from cybetron or somethin?

"Now I don't know why he "slipped and busted his lip," some older kids could have stuck him up."

If you are going to quote me, make sure you quote what I said at the end of that paragraph, f*g.

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?" Really, who skates in a park, all night?



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.

LOL@ You not being bright enough to find a slight metaphor in the song.

I don't completely agree with the poster who broke it down but I do see how it isn't a stretch to see this song as a metaphor.

I bet you though Lupe was referencing bird flu in Streets on Fire right?

I see this on two levels.

It can be broken down into a meaning for selling drugs. Very well at that. But then again my n my homegirl try to make the meaning of most songs about s3x. Sometimes you can make of a song what you want. The artist vision will rarely be understood because different things mean different stuff to different people. Someone could spin it a different way and still come of as making sense.
hit the f**kin nail on the head, it's about how YOU interpret it, do any of you personally know Lupe and have asked and confirmed the song is also about hustling? Every song is open to interpretation, you can interpret it in a way not even close to what the artist was trying to convey.

Bruh, it ain't a stretch to make that connection if you take into account what he said at the beginning of the song....

And this one right here
I dedicate this one right here
To all my homies out there grindin' (ya know what I'm saying)
Legally and Illegally



Grindin'..... come on man. It's not hard to see that dude was not just referencing rails in the park especially when you hear the exact next line in which says "legally and illegally"

Now listen to the song just from that perspective. I can see how people can make the connection, although not as whacky as dude in this thread did.
