Lupe’s playing off his previous line. The “can-dle” won’t be blown out, so he goes on to talk about his “can-do”. Somewhat corny, but has an excellent effect on the song

He also is using wordplay to initiate a darker meaning. Is Lupe a ghost that has control over you, your thoughts, and your possessions?

Maybe, because he has a “can do” spririt, he is also saying he possesses everything that all the phony rappers possess (through success) and because he implies they are are lazy in other parts of the song, he asks if they were on the couch when they heard of his success (typical lazy people sit on a couch and watch TV).

And, because his spirit is “possessing your possessions” it could be heard literally ‘by’ the couch or it could actually ‘buy’ the couch as a way to possess it. Adds some irony since the boogieman didn’t come to “buy” anything, but when you’re a “can do” spirit, you got it like that ;)
