A hypocrite, I stated, though I only recited half
Omitting the word "bitch", cursing - I wouldn't say it
A perfect illustration of the tension between Lupe’s puritan sensibilities and his love of rap: Lupe would listen and rap along to music but when curse words such as “bitch” came up in the song he wouldn’t rap along. He’s showing that a lot of rap songs have a lot of unnecessary cursing, so as a hyperbole he omitted half the song.
This is analogous to the tendency of many white guys who listen to rap rapping along but not saying the “n” word (although this is normally as much due to a fear that somebody will hear them as it is due to being mindful of what a loaded term it is coming from a white guy).
