Cowboy, you calf like the back of my leg, you ain't seein' what I said

from Lupe Fiasco – SLR 3 (Round of Applause) Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Lupe continues with the body part analogies to express his superiority in the rap game. Lu is a cowboy (metaphorically, of course) while these other rappers are calves, or young cows, in comparison. Saying “calf” and not cow may be a nod to the fact that Kendrick is relatively young in this rap game.

Cowboys catch calves at rodeos during “tie-down roping” so lyrically Kendrick is a calf and Lupe is the Cowboy roping him in and controlling him.

The calf is also a part of the back of the human leg.

Calf 1

Calf 2

Note: When Lupe released SLR 2, he tweeted “no beef.” The meat from a calf is instead called veal.
