Ain't hatin' on that you hatin' wrong, cause you can't hang on to my angles

from Lupe Fiasco – SLR 2 Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

a)

Angle as in perspective:

Lupe is stating that he isn’t mad that many people have a strong dislike for him. He believes that it is simply because they do not comprehend the depth of his views. Have you ever checked out his #philosophysunday?

b)

Angle as in physical reality:

Imagine Lupe’s lyricism as a mountain, there aren’t many rappers who can hang with him.

c)

Angle as a metaphor:

You can’t hang on to Lupe’s angles because his mind is too sharp.

Also note the word play on the previous line – angels & angles.

p.s.

Coincidentally T.T. Boy (referenced earlier in this song) has a company/website called Evasive Angles (definitely NSFW).
