Cause this, the focus on this new shit is that hopeless
Place that I was born into systematic brokeness
Took that downpression and developed it to dopeness
Lupe was born in West Side Chicago, a low-income dangerous environment (systematic brokeness) and came out of it by rapping about it and created a great lifestyle (developed into dopeness). Because he came from the bottom, he has sympathy for; the Afghani kid without a home, Iraqi with no daddy, because he too was from the bottom of society.
