Dear Lord, have mercy on my banana clips
Give 'em half, call it that banana splits
Lupe is splitting his bullets in half (ouch) for his verbal AK spray. The banana split is a dessert that separates two bananas with awesome dessert-stuff in the middle.
This is might be a nod to Big KRIT and his track Banana Clip Theory. In response to Kendrick’s Control verse, Lupe gave Krit his props on Twitter (quoted below because Lupe’s tweets are private #Scorea)
@Ari_shabazz: @LupeFiasco what of big krit?
Krit & Pac still the only rappers I “personally” listen to and relate to as of late
Lupe tweeted this line along with a photo of an automatic firearm — note the banana shape of the magazine/clip.
