ehh, bumpy johnson can also refer to stevie wonder

I'm Bumpy Johnson, I stick to the streets
Keep my dogs out in front of me
You see what I'm saying
And I push ki's wonderfully

It's Ralph Lauren on the rap laureate
n*ggas brownnose, they are like Alf to him
Runners at Interscope are not as Stoute as him
Please don't Interscope
^refers to jay-z as jay-z refers himself to ralph lauren

"Roc-a-wear I'm the young black Ralph Lauren"


Now I'm over the lip
Watch how they mugs drop when they see my Verbal's able
^thought this was related to skateboarding "over the lip" and "verbal's able" referring to being able to do an advanced trick

Could damn near see Detroit
n*ggas is scared of heights
^"n*ggas is scared of heights" refers to dearborn heights which used to be a segregated city that tried to threaten african american families from moving in

"Dearborn was known nationally for its de facto racial segregation under Mayor Orville L. Hubbard, whose 36 year tenure ended in 1978. Hubbard became the most famous segregationist north of the Mason-Dixon line and openly admitted to allowing the use of intimidation tactics against African-American families looking to move to Dearborn."
^From Wiki

also

Of course you will
Take my time
But weight behind only pertains
To that Porsche grill
^also means about everything previously he was talking about refers to his car, but i aint even gonna get into that

if he would talk about stuff people wanna listen to he would get praised more. He could be a nas but his content limits his audience, he may change back to the way he use to rap.
he's alot more versatile than most rappers out his album touch all bases i dont know what u mean by something people wanna hear if thas bussin his guns and pushin megatons of coke then he'd jus be the avg rapper

Lupe, Common, and Kanye own the HIP-HOP industry...

No one understands Lupe, his lyrics are MAD to deep for some people, thx for takin' time to break them down...

Another good one is Twlight Zone...

Damn can someone please PM me this track! This sounds sick...

And one line you didn't analyse right...

I remember I ain't have sneakers
It was welfare
Coming up for air is like
Whales there
^^Whales, unlike fish, have to come up from the water for air

Means he was poor and didn't have 'air' as in Nike airs, but now he's come up from been poor, and has come up and got lots of material things, including Nike Airs. Also links to the fact that he says he has twelve pairs or something now...








But seriously someone please up this for me.
