Lyrics

Uh, what up y'all?
Yeah, soundtrack, what's poppin' baby?
Woo!
Y'all ain't know,
I go by the name of Lupe Fiasco.
Representin' that first and fifteen,
yeah, uh.
And this one right here,
I dedicate this one right here,
to all my homies out there, grinding,
ya' know what I'm sayin'?
Legally and illegally. Ha ha, you know what I'm talkin' 'bout.
So, check it out, uh.
First got it when he was six, didn't know many tricks,
matter fact, 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 this.
Now we could end the story right here, but shorty didn't quit, there was something in the air.
Yeah, he said it was something so appealing, he couldn't fight the feelin', something about it.
He knew he couldn't doubt it,
couldn't understand it,
brand it, since the first kickflip, he landed.
Uh, labeled a misfit, abandoned,
"ca-kunk, ca-kunk, ca-kunk,"
his neighbors couldn't stand it.
So, he was banished to the park,
started in the morning, wouldn't stop 'til after dark.
Yeah, when they said, "It's gettin' late in here, so I'm sorry young man, there's no skatin' here."
So we kick, push, kick, push, kick, push, kick, push, coast.
And the way he roll, 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.
Uh, uh, uh.
My man got a little older, became a better roller,
yeah, no helmet, "hell-bent on killin' hisself," is what his momma 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 what was happenin' to him now.
Uh, he said, "I would marry you,
but I'm engaged to these aerials and varials, and I don't think this board is strong enough to carry two."
She said,
"Bow, I weigh a hundred and twenty pounds.
Now, let me make one thing clear,
I don't need to ride yours, I got mine right here."
So she took him to a spot he didn't know about,
somewhere 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."
And so they kick, push, kick, push, kick, push, kick, push, coast.
And the way they roll, just lovers intertwined with no place to go.
And so they 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.
Yeah, uh, yeah, yeah.
Before he knew, he had a crew,
that weren't no punk,
in they Spitfire shirts and SB dunks.
They would push,
'til they couldn't skate no more,
office building lobbies wasn't safe no more.
And it wasn't like they weren't getting chased no more.
Just the freedom was better than breathin' they said.
An escape route they used to escape out when things got crazy they needed to break out, they'd head,
to any place with stairs.
Any good grinds, the world was theirs, uh.
And they four wheels would take 'em there,
until the cops came and said, "there's no skatin' here."
And so they kick, push, kick, push, kick, push, kick, push, coast.
And the way they roll, just rebels without a cause with no place to go.
And so they kick, push, kick, push, kick, push, kick, push, coast.
So come and roll with me, just a rebel looking for a place to be.
So let's kick,
and push,
and coast.
Ah ha, swanky.
