So, without further adieu, check out TheDrop.Fm’s 10 Best Lupe Fiasco lyrics.
“Uh, labeled a misfit, a bandit / Kakunk Kakunk Kakunk! / His neighbors couldn’t stand it / So He was banished to the park / Started in the morning wouldn’t stop ’til after dark…”
“Skin ain’t Huck Finn / But I ain’t N—– Jim, motherf—er / I’m more like Clubber, from the upper cut of the gutter / Never kowtow, I won’t bow down to the bull like Calcutta…”
– “If You Want To‘ (From Travis Barker’s album ‘Give the Drummer Some’)
“I’m feeling really good, me and my different beat / Me and my different drummer, he play the timpanis / See that’s what got me here, you hearing me / Me on my black man in the future s—, call me Billy Dee…”
“He turns down the beat, writer’s block impedes / Crying from the next room, a baby in need / Of some Pampers and some food and place to sleep / That plus a black Cadillac on Ds / Is what keep him on track to be a great MC…”

“Don’t give the black man food / Give red man liquor / Red man fool, black man n—- / Give yellow man tool, make him railroad builder / Also give him pan, make him pull gold from river / Give black man crack, Glocks and things / Give red man craps, slot machines, now bring it back…”
