A rebel in your thoughts ain't gon' make it halt

from Lupe Fiasco (Ft. Skylar Grey) – Words I Never Said Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Lupe proffers that just because you listen to the words that Tupac spit about “change,” doesn’t do anything for the betterment of the world. Not putting your thoughts into action isn’t good enough and will ultimately not evoke the real-world change needed, which is the theme of the song.

Keeping your thoughts to yourself isn’t good enough. Speak up!

Thoughts —–> Words —–> Actions! —–> REVOLUTION

cough lu is a dirty existentialist cough cough
