They wanna smell like me
They want my bouquet
But they can't
They accented like the UK
Turn that eau de Lupe to
By saying they want his smell, Lupe is saying that other rappers or people in general want to know how he works his lyrics and creates his songs. The second word of the fourth line could either be “accented” (as in British English) or “act scented”
It could also mean that no matter how hard they try to walk, talk, and be like Lupe, they will always have that “UK accent” that gives them away. ‘Eau de Lupe’ means water of Lupe in French: many cologne’s are named with ‘eau de ____’ to sound exotic and sophisticated as Lupe’s sound often is.
