Bein' dope is all in the muscle
It's more than just a pause and a chuckle

from Lupe Fiasco – SLR (Super Lupe Rap) Lyrics on Rap Genius


Clever word play and a clear shot at rappers who just use “swag” to be good, i.e. Lil Wayne. Being dope is about flexing the biggest muscle you have, your brain!

Note the ironic chuckle heard in the background.

“Doping” also means using steroids in sports, which obviously makes muscles stronger
