  2. I think I'm starting to get it. The idea of something more sinister hiding behind what appears to be an angel/priest/doctor/soldier. Similar to the song Angels and how the angel that was seducing him was really a demon in his Lamborghini.

  3. lupe doesn't stand a chance in the era of rap-genius if he released another "failure" they would be on it quicker than he can say fiasco.

    In order to understand the chorus, imagine this:
    In 10000BC foreteller is asked about what he sees happening in the future. He replies " I see diamond flooded demons". Based on his life's context and experiences that is the best way he can possibly explained the future to the people of that time.

  5. When listening to F&L2 i think you should always try and make connections with the cast of The Cool. The Game, The Streets, The Cool and Michael Young History. I've listened to the album a few times and definitely there are abstract connections in his songs. I know a a couple for sure : 'How Dare You' can be tied to the Streets, Cold War can be about MYH. There's others, too. Go find em! haha

  6. To the guy above ^

    i caught the line in Strange Fruition straight away.
    "The belly of the beast, these streets are demon's abs"

    It reminded me of the line from his BET cipher, y'know "The Game got the belly of the beast, blunts for fingers / hollow tips for teeth"

  12. Cold War is about Esco but can be very much related to MYH. Check the lyrics fam. Especially the last verse. I also noticed the lyric where he mentioned "Everywhere, Nowhere, Down Here". LupE.N.D. I just love how much Lupe puts into his songs.

  13. I'm going to begin this saying Lupe Fiasco is by far one of the most under rated lyricist of our time. The King of Cool gets the up most respect for Me(Ramses). My interpretation of Lamborghini Angels is the contradiction between good and evil.
    The song touches on the practice of lobotomy which is a neurosurgical procedure, and or a form of psychosurgery, used in the late 19th and early to mid 20th Century. Towards the end of the first verse the person performing the procedure condones what he is doing and Lupe The King of Cool also touches on the side effects the patient experiences. The song also exploits the controversy of pedophilia in the Catholic Church. All in all Lupe has a true intellectual and engaged fan base and those that don't get it probably don't like conscious rap. Lupe THE KING OF COOL Fiasco is ahead of his time and will be appreciated by a later generations.
