Put a bug in they ear, so from here up, they hear us
Sounds like a jab at wiretapping and George Bush. Lupe doesn’t care if the powers-that-be “bug” his inner circle ‘cause he wants them to hear what he has to say anyhow
It could also be a reference to secret agent earpieces: he’s putting bugs in everyone’s ears so they can hear him more clearly.
