Tricks falling out of my sleeves
David Blaine is a thug illusionist, known for doing magic tricks on TV
His greatest trick? Getting people to watch magic on television, making it hella-easy for him to cheat
Like David Blaine, or rather Blaine’s television persona, Lupe always has “a trick up his sleeve.” While a magician would often literally have the secret to one of his feats concealed in his sleeve or elsewhere on his person, Lupe Fiasco’s hidden tricks are concealed in his mind and embedded in his lyrics.
