[Talking]
Uhn...
What up yall?...(yea)
Soundtrack, what's poppin' baby?
Yall ain't know
I go by the name of Lupe Fiasco
Representin that 1st and 15...(yea uhn)
And this one right here, I dedicate this one right here
To all my homies out there grindin (u know what i'm sayin) legally and illegally (haha).
You know what I'm talking bout?... So, check it out

[Verse 1]
Uhn
First got it when he was six, didn't know any tricks
Matter fact, the first time he got on it he slipped
Landed on his hip, and busted his lip
For a week he had to talk with a lisp (like thisth)
Now we could end the story right here
But shorty didn't quit it was somethin in the air
Yea, he said it was somethin so appealin
He couldn't fight the feelin, somethin about it
He knew he couldn't doubt it, couldn't understand it, brand it
Since the first kick flip he landed (uhn)
Labeled a misfit, a bandit
*Kuh-coom, Kuh-coom, Kuh-coom*
His neighbors couldn't stand it
So...he was banished to the park
Started in the morning wouldn't stop till after dark
Yea, when they said, "It's gettin in late in here,
So im sorry young man, there's no skatin here"

[Hook]
And so we kick push, kick push, kick push, kick push, coast...
And away he rolled, just a rebel to the world with no place to go
And so we kick push, kick push, kick push, kick push, coast...
So come and skate with me, just a rebel looking for a place to be
So let's kick and push and coast...

[Verse 2]
My man got a little older, became a better roller
Yea, no helmet, he'll end up killin hisself
Is what his mama said, but he was feelin himself
Got a little more swagger in his style
Met his girlfriend, she was clappin in the crowd
Love, is what was happenin to him now
He said, "I will marry you, but im engaged to these arials and varials,
And i dont think this board is strong enough to carry two."
She said, "Bow!... i weigh 120 pounds, now, lemme make one thing clear,
I dont need to ride yours, i got mine right here"
So she took him to a spot he didn't know about
Some odd in the apartment parking lot
She said, "I don't normally take dates in here"
Security came and said, "I'm sorry there's no skatin here"

[Hook]
And so they kick push, kick push, kick push, kick push, coast...
And away they road, just lovers in a twine wit no place to go
And so they kick push, kick push, kick push, kick push, coast...
So come and skate wit me, just a rebel, lookin for a place to be
So let's kick and push and coast...

[Verse 3]
Before he knew he had a crew, that wasn't no punk
And they spit fire shirts and SB dunks
They would push, till they couldn't skate no more
Office buildin lobbies, wasn't safe no more
And it wasn't like they wasn't gettin chased no more
Just the freedom was better than breathin they said
And the skate route they used to escape out
When things got crazy they needed to break out
They'd head, to any place wit stairs
Any good grinds, the world was theirs
And their four wheels would take them there
Until the cops came and said, "There's no skatin here"

[Hook]
And so we kick push, kick push, kick push, kick push, coast...
And away they road just rebels without a cause, wit no place to go
And so they kick push, kick push, kick push, kick push, coast...
So come roll wit me, just a rebel lookin for a place to be
So let's kick and push and coast...

Lupe's the truth...hit me up if you want to hear any of the farenheit 1/15 mixtapes.

Dude has the potential to really spark some life into conscious hip hop
