Chess, yes, baby I’m Jerry Lawler
Rebel with a cause, outlaw with the lawyer
Lupe references Chess Records since that was the label robbing Little Richard. Lupe compares himself to Jerry “The King” Lawler, a professional wrestler known for his arrogant, cocky persona and his outlandish ring attire
Out of the ring, Lawler’s dealt with some legal trouble, divorcing three wives, running over a policeman’s foot and being falsely accused of statutory rape
Lupe, I get that you feel like a black sheep, but try to stay out of the legal system, bro!
