You got your good, y'know, and your bad
You got your food, and your liquor
The central theme of Lupe’s first album was balancing the good and evil of growing up in Chicago.
“In Chicago, instead of having bodegas like in New York, the majority of the corner stores are called ‘Food and Liquors.’ The store is where everything is at, whether it be the wine-o hanging by the store, or us as kids going back and forth to the store to buy something. The Food is the good part and the Liquor is the bad part. I try to balance out both parts of me.”
