Consider this a kilogram of encouragement
Teach you how to sneak it past the enforcement
Lupe is offering a kilogram of encouragement as opposed to a kilo of performance-enhancing drugs. He’s also teaching you how to sneak it in and pass the “drug tests” (obstacles that major record labels and others put in front of you).
In fact, Lupe has done just that with this song. He’s sneaked in meaningful verses into a mainstream chorus (Props to Ed Sheeran, though, because I do love this hook!)
