But they saying what I'm seeing through is false like Ross
(more obvious) Rick Ross used to be a corrections officer before pretending to be a thug rapper. Thus, Lupe’s lenses are as fake as Ross' rap persona
A lesser known incident occurred when Ross appeared on the cover of XXL magazine wearing Louis Vitton sunglasses which were later revealed to be fake. So, Lupe’s perspective (one literally “sees through” sunglass lenses) is just as fake as Ross' “designer” shades
This probably isn’t intended to be a diss; since Lupe and Ross have collaborated (on tracks like Poor Decisions).
