I be in outer space but I got inner peace

from Lupe Fiasco – I'm Beamin' Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

The first part of the line is part of the I’m out of this world/ I’m an alien meme in rap. This contrasts with the second part of the line in which Lupe says he is emotionally and spiritually calm.

Also shows the contrast between outer (outer appearances etc.) vs. inner (personality, character, what’s inside). Also he hints towards his mentality of thinking by saying that he is “in outer space” he simply rephrases that he is outside of the box, which is fine to him.

Again Lupe puns with the letter of space and inner peace (P’s). The “P” of space is again within the word and not on the outside making it a “inner P”. Seems like Lupe likes juggling with words…
