An amalgamation of two songs with two different hooks, this eight-and-a-half minute track touches on unjust incarceration and the racist tendencies of prison officials. The two halves are split by a spoken word piece from Lupe's sister Ayesha Jaco, who is a Youth Empowerment Expert and Professor. She has done the intro on many of her brother's albums.
The prisoner in the first half of the song also represents the criminal who asked Jesus to bring him to heaven (Luke 23:39-43).
Bob Dylan's most popular song is "Like A Rolling Stone," which tells the story of a wealthy woman whose money and friends fall away. Dylan offers these mockingly encouraging words: "When you ain't got nothing, you got nothing to lose."
