I flip my incandescents to flourescents

from The Roots (Ft. Joana Newsome & STS) – Right On Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Incandescence and fluorescence are terms most commonly used when referring to light bulbs. Many people are switching from incandescent bulbs to fluorescent ones because they are more efficient and thus last longer and are more environmentally friendly. Fluorescent bulbs also produce less heat, which is good, but might not work quite as well for a rap metaphor
