Thought Kick Push was about drugs

from Lupe Fiasco – Peace of Paper/Cup of Jayzus Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Lupe’s most popular song from his debut album, Food & Liquor, was Kick Push. It dealt with the story of a boy who loved skateboarding and how he was constantly told, “so I’m sorry young man, there’s no skating here.”

In the intro, Lupe says, “This is for all my homies out there grinding, legally and illegally.” This led some listeners to believe he was using skateboarding as a disguise for another form of grinding, an illegal one, selling drugs. However, the rest of the song’s lyrics are difficult to fit into the trapping game’s context.
