Lupe Fiasco: Past My Shades (Verse)

[Verse]

Uh, who else but Lu else?
You know I got two belts: The black and the white one
I begin and I master
I see in my eye-glasses
But they sayin' what I'm seein' through is false like Ross
I can hear 'em through the wall like walk
This way they try to dissuade my thoughts
I'm a slave to myself, don't disobey my boss
It's all in disarray, this parade I walk
They get amazed when they catch a chain I toss
Amidst disarray, a different ways, I talk
And it hangs from your brain if my chain, you caught
Like I cough without covering my mouth
I tip the scales like the King of the South
Forgot that I was phat, I lost my way
But now I'm back, looking for the shade I sought
And not wonders, Scott Summers
So don't make me take off my stunners
And Bobby Ray, you got my numbas
And dem deer can't see us like hunters

  4. in the iconic vid for "Walk This Way" by Run DMC and Aerosmith they're putting their ears to a wall (that divides the two genres: rap and rock) to hear each other
