Lamborghini Angels

Album: Food & Liquor 2: The Great American Rap Album Pt. 1 (2012)
Charted: 92

Songfacts®:

  • The third single from the Food & Liquor II: The Great American Rap Album Pt. 1 is a thought-provoking effort, where Fiasco touches on religion, paedophilia, brainwashing and more. The third verse includes some bars about a priest who sexually abuses a young child and the Moslem rapper issued a warning to fans. "If you are easily offended or religiously sensitive DO NOT listen to #LamborghiniAngels it contains very strong subject matter," he tweeted.
  • Lamborghinis are luxury sports cars that are manufactured in Italy. According to the Rap Genius site, Fiasco uses the term "Lamborghini angels" to say we admire a culture that is materialistic. In the same way that God whom we admire needs his angels, the rich we admire need their Lamborghinis. In addition, the way their doors go up and down look like flapping wings, like an angel would have. Rap Genius states the explanation has been verified by Fiasco.
