Lupe wrote this song in honor of Jonylah Watkins, the six-month-old tragically shot and killed last week in Chicago. He tells a story of what could have happened if she had a chance to live. My prayers go out to her family!
“DONT MIND ME….JUST STAYING IN SHAPE…JUST PRACTICE…LIKE A PIANO PLAYER OR A GYMNAST. Not on T&Y…So pls dont Say It Is on your blog. Thanx.”
Interesting…I completely understand what Lupe is saying. But its all entertainment, right? What do you think? I respect how Lupe articulates his thoughts without “dissing” Keef. His honesty is refreshing to see. -via OffTopTv
This is tight! The crazy part of it…its TRUE.
Dope! Food and Liquor 2 out Sep. 25.
This is real. I really appreciate how much he cares. Rap just isn’t about making money for him. Its a bigger cause. Much respect Lupe!-via RawRoots

I love this joint! Saw it on my homies blog over at a Different Kitchen. And like I told him, this song leaves me feeling very optimistic about the future for some reason. This is one of the hottest hip hop joints of 2011.
