This week's throwback was described by Lupe as being based on a true story as well as being one of his favorites during the live chat for the 5th anniversary of Food & Liquor. As the intro to the leaked version of his debut album, he delivers what I consider to be one of his best flows as he details what it was like growing up on the streets of the West Side of Chicago. With lines like...
I can't feel a field niggas' chains, though I covet mine, so I covered mine in bling, then I bumped into a bum and covered mine in shame, then I bumped into a hon' and uncovered mine again
...this track ends up being one of the prime examples of duality Lupe always stresses in his music. Shout out to @AbyssTheUnknown for picking this week's throwback!
