With work off in the trunk and niggas in the hood

from Lupe Fiasco (Ft. Casey Benjamin) – Strange Fruition Lyrics on Rap Genius


“Work” is, of course, drugs. “Hood” has its automotive meaning here, but also has connotations of neighborHOOD, thus continuing the ghetto ideas above

This is probably Lupe’s second best trunk and hood metaphor. As he spits on Revenge of the Nerds, “I’m far from the hood like limousine trunks”
