If you force my hand I'll be forced to "draw"

from Lupe Fiasco (Ft. Jay Z) – Pressure Lyrics on Rap Genius


If you start beef with Jay he’ll “draw” on you — a metaphor that extends to both gunplay and artistic creation. It’s a nice double entendre, since Jay-Z is constantly blurring the line between these activities in his lyrics. He sustains the metaphor brilliantly over the next three lines, where he threatens to turn his competitors to “murals” while also proclaiming his ability to fashion masterpieces.

Don’t make me do it!
