But I can't fade like Fantastic Sams

from Lupe Fiasco – Absolute Freestyle Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Lupe’s saying he cant fade (in the sense that he refuses to fade away); the double entendre is that Fantastic Sam’s is a “white” barbershop that can’t give a proper “fade,” a popular black/latino haircut.
