Revisit the ship, upon which niggas seasick
Floatin' on the water out the eyes that I see with
Let’s go back to the sailboat which is barely surviving in Lupe’s ocean of tears; the ocean that is making other rappers nauseous. When Lupe was visiting his neighbourhood (which is the ship that made him seasick) with TV he took them to his favorite skatepark. Now look at the moves that skaters are perfoming on the vert ramp. It’s lookin like they are on the boat, swaying from side to side. Also ramp is built in a similar way to how hull of the boat is built. When Lupe watched this old interview the water came out the eyes that he sees with.
The “ship upon which niggas seasick” could be a reference to a similar line Lu uses in SLR 2
As is common in rap, this line could refer to the slave ships that brought many rappers ancestors to America.
