The tug of wars on Strike Dunham and Dap Dunlap
Strike Dunham is a character from Spike Lee’s Clockers.
Strike, played by Mekhi Phifer, was a guy from the hood who was obsessed with trains. He just wanted to get out of the hood. But in the mean time he sold drugs.
Dap Dunlap is a character from Spike Lee’s School Daze. Dap , played by Lawrence Fishburne, on the other hand was this super afro-centric conscious guy who was into nubian queens and pure African blood.
Skyzoo is saying there’s a tug of war between wanting to do what’s best (in life and as a rapper) and doing what you have to do.
