Only Ken and Ryu I find it hard to beat Blanka

from Lupe Fiasco – Gold Watch Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Lupe only uses Ken and Ryu, two of the main fighters in the series — and the most well-rounded. Nevertheless, Lupe still has trouble beating Blanka. In Lupe’s fairness, the dude is a green human/electric eel that flips all over the damn place.

I always thought Ken and Ryu also made reference to the countries they’re from in SFII (Japan and USA), as the song is talking about his love for American and Japanese culture
