“The Pen and the Needlz/Ohh Oh”

[Lupe talking]

Grew up in Chicago, West side, gang lifestyle, the drug scene, the whole.. it’s like one whole universe of insanity

[Verse 1]

Before I start, like to make sure I’m smart

Gather my composure, rather my swagger and my culture

Pivot my fitted, then begin to rivet, with a change of lyric

In other words, I reposition how I sit it

Then make you feel it like I mispronounced “filet”

On second thought, I can’t make you fill it

Like you digging your own grave, 

unless you can Kill Bill it

A night of the living passed away

Can you dig it? Why Emcee? Hey

I do it for my village

The pennin’ is John Lennon, the beat is the Beatles

Go together like Lenin and the people

In some fresh linens and some John Lennon’s fresh outta Seagle’s

The pen and the needles…

[Verse 2]

I’m back at cha, and I Pac like cap backwards

Like a hat’s backwards, you know, when the bats backwards

Yeah, like a bat catchers

The law gotta long arm like a back scratcher

But before I leave mine at home

Like a bad catcher, I think about my zone

Where pimps make scratch off the track like a DJ

Easy, that’s my zone rappers

It’s my deck

And if I catch u set trippin’ wit my cassette sittin’ in a zone rappers:

It’s not a threat

Cuz it’ll span ya where I roam rappers, where I hone my skill


They wanna send me back home the devil, is on my heels

The writing is Sting, liken the sequences, the Police, I repeat

We go together like the Beauty and the Beast

Writing is in my veins;

The ink is the diesel, the pen and the needles…

[Verse 3]

The word is mightier than the sword

And my serve is tightier than yours

Like year in St. Louis ya whole flow

I fear I sank through it…

It all became clear

Like a paramedic with an electric chest kit, YEAH

The gravity of the vocabulary is a caliber equal to Excalibur

Swung wit the grace of Agassi in his amateurs, THERE

There was a deeper depth, don’t know how I got here

I also had a hole in my flow

It appears I sank to it…

My swing, it couldn’t be seen

I apply some paint to it, the invisible man

Wrapped in bandages, in critical, CLEAR

The scriptin’ of Scorsese the score is Count Basie

We go together like, the original and the sequel

This is the end of the trilogy, ya feelin’ me?

The pen and the needles…
