Shit, I held up signs in the streets for you

from Common (Ft. Erykah Badu, Pharrell Williams & Q-Tip) – Come Close Remix Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

This is a reference to the video to the original version of this song, where Common raps the verses to the song while using cardboard signs to communicate the meanings of the words to her. After the second verse, he eventually proposes (and she accepts).
