I'm a rockstar with a band so thorough
Similar to Eminem’s disdain for boy bands, Lupe makes this analogy to assert his manly machoness. Boy groups (especially pop) have been seen throughout time as soft and feminine in the hip hop world. Most likely because rappers never get that much genuine love….
It also refers to the fact that boy bands are very dependant on their images. By comparing the two, Lupe is saying he’s not fake. While at the same time Lupe is also referring to his rock band Japanese Cartoon.
