I'm just a little old hope with his back against the ropes
Fightin' for his fans and fightin' for his folks
But the boos from the crowd can become so loud
If I can block 'em out then, I could knock 'em out and
Dance around the ring but until then I'll sing
Till I Get There by Lupe Fiasco

Referencing “Great White Hope”. This was a play (later turned movie) that deals with oppression. Ali was quoted as saying that it was basically “his life story”.

Everyone's ashamed of the youth cause the truth look, strange
And for me it's reversed
We left em a world that's cursed
And it hurts
Ghetto Gospel by 2Pac (Ft. Elton John)

Several people put the blame on adolescents/younger adults for being troublemakers and thinking they’re “above the law”; hence he says, “everyone’s ashamed of the youth”.

However, as a young adult himself, he believes that “everyone” is to blame for not creating a good environment and a positive community for them and the youth. Tupac is saying our parents and grandparents shaped the world we are born into, they created the troubled youth.

Cause any day they'll push the button
And all come in like Malcolm X or Bobby Hutton died for nothing
Ghetto Gospel by 2Pac (Ft. Elton John)

If the Black youth of today “push the button” (meaning fall back into the stereotypical lifestyle of stealing and running drugs), black activists such as Malcolm X or Bobby Hutton will have died for nothing.

I got an idea, you should get a tattoo that says warning
That's all, just a warning, so the potential victim can take a left
And save breath, and avoid you, sober and upset in the morning
Fuck You Lucy by Atmosphere

Whether Lucy is a metaphor for his alcoholism, hip hop, or women and his problems with validation (or more likely, all of the above), this line means the same thing. Slug wishes he had been warned before he got himself embroiled in all this, all his problems, and now it’s too late. All he can hope to do is warn others through his music.
