Never Hussein in the (w)hole, not even in the half

from Lupe Fiasco – Thank You Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Great example of homophones and wordplay.
Hussein in the whole/hole=Double Entendre

  1. Obviously it’s general knowledge that Saddam Hussein was hiding in a hole when found in the Middle East.

  2. Lupe saying he nothing like Hussein (meaning he never hides). He’s nowhere near %100 of what Hussein is(which is a coward). Not even half of that
