Gangsta rap-based filmings became the building blocks
For children with leaking ceilings catching drippings with pots

from Lupe Fiasco – Hurt Me Soul Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Rap music videos become the imaginative building blocks for ghetto children growing up in poverty, as did Lupe: there is a huge divide between what they see on television and what they experience day to day

Lupe, more recently, has touched on memories from classic hood movies on the track “Double Burger With Cheese” off the Friend of the People mixtape.
