My mindstate rewinds wakes
And fast-forwards bullets makin'a B-line for my face
Then they stop like Neo
A wake is the part of a funeral when everyone gets one last look at the body before it is closed in the casket. Lupe is saying that his mindstate can rewind wakes and bring people back to life while at the same time speed up all the hate that comes at him. However, since he is like Neo (in The Matrix) and thus “The One,” he can just stop the hate with his mind as well.
