And I believe in the people, yeah
As opposed to the elite, Lupe believes in the “people’s” right to self-determination and to govern themselves. NOTE: “PBUH” is not a nickname for the Prophet Muhammed, it means “peace be upon him” and is uttered after the name of many prophets is said, including Jesus, Moses, Abraham. It is NOT the Prophet Muhammed’s nickname. It makes no sense to say “i believe in the ‘pbuh’”. Lupe is clearly saying “I believe in the people.” End of debate.
