So go ahead and pirate, the highest
Cannons make you leak like pirated my shh
Lupe here refers to the fallout that ensued after his debut album Food & Liquor was “leaked” shortly before its initial release (piracy is a federal crime, mind you…). As can be evidenced from previous interviews, he’s still a little pissed off about losing revenue because of that leak
And no, Lupe self-censored his own self here…
Also a reference to DJ Cannon, a mixtape DJ/producer known for “leaking” exclusives
Note that this also continues the piracy theme started by the earlier references to Blackbeard and Davy Jones' locker.
