A reiteration of Kanye’s blog post in February, 2010:

If we don’t do what you feel is the shit, you beat us up verbally and mentally, like a catholic school teacher beating a creative student into submission. I can hear you screaming ‘color inside the lines!!!‘ Well fuck your coloring book, color by numbers approach to life.

The White people did not like how Cassius Clay aka Ali acted as a black man who often stood up for his rights and challenged the racist views of the world. The Whites would want a black man who was suppressed by the white man and kept in line regarding society structure at the time.

Another interpretation is also outlined in chalk: they want colored people inside of chalk lines, the one the police traces at the crime scene.

Kanye already expressed his concerns about the way niggas are treated in the society in Gorgeous:

I treat the cash the way the government treats AIDS
I won’t be satisfied til all my niggas get it, get it?

I’ve always heard the second part as “…they don’t want nobody that’s color out of the lines” alluding both the the previous line and his role as a black man who exists outside the boundaries he feels white society has tried to set for him.

Albert Einstein reference— theory of relativity e=mc2

Lupe is doing MC math here. If you use MC as a variable then MC squared would be MCMC, twice as much as 1 emcee/raper.

“I make it relate” —> relativity

Keep in mind that MC2 is not twice the amount of MC.
Twice the amount of MC is 2*MC…but, carry on.

The belly stands for streets/hood. It’s word play on how his homies are sippin' liquor and than they hit the streets.

A dime is also worth 10 cents

Since Lupe doesn’t look like a model, it wouldn’t be wise for him to dump a sexy lady. This is another homophone, using ten/tin.

The preceeding line is “Never will i drop a dime,” So this carries on that thought of not snitching, that he’s not the telling type. It’s a play on the words “ten/telling”, but i could swear he says “never been the telling type”.

Plus a Dime is one tenth of a Dollar.

Add a suggestion

To ‘drop a dime’ means to snitch, which he promises he will never do. A dime is also a name for a fine woman, which Lupe wouldn’t want to break up with.

The slang meaning of drop is also to beat up. Lupe will never hit a women just like Kanye West
