Football or volley-b, hock-el-y, or sock-el-y
You just get the rock to me

from Lupe Fiasco – Put Em Up Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Could be a Rock ‘n’ Sock Connection reference.

‘Hockely’ also refers to Ed Hochuli, who is normally a referee in the National Football League.

The Rock was regarded as the “most electrifying man in sports entertainment”. Basketball, football, and soccer are all mainstream, widely-accepted sports, while professional wrestling has been regarded as a non-sport. So Lupe is bringing you something outside the box, outside of the mainstream.

Sock-el-y as soccer-ly. Thus whether it’s football, volleyball, hockey, or soccer, just get the rock, slang for ball, to Lupe and let him do his thing with it.
