Lupe is a real genius towards her. The track “Adoration Of The Magi” from the album “Tetsuo & Youth” is definitive proof of this. While you’re busy watching the stripper dance around a pole and get naked, you might miss the incredible meaning of this song.

‘Adoration of the Magi’ is the name traditionally given to the subject of the Nativity of Jesus in art in which the three Magi, represented as kings, especially in the West, having found Jesus by following a star, lay before him gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh, and worship it, says Wikipedia.

This music video is a feast for your ears as well as your eyes. If you want eye candy, keep watching. If you want to listen, close your eyes and listen. Either way, it’s so good.

If you look closely, you’ll see a bigger picture than just a stripper dancing around a pole. There is a hidden message here. You can see a variety of people staring at the stripper. There is a nun, a policeman, someone who looked like a student and so on. They are all sinners in some way, no matter what clothes they wear over them.

The “Adoration Of The Magi” hook has everyone talking;

Why are you ready to die? you are just a baby
Why the tears under your eyes? you are just a baby
Keep your head up in the sky, you’re just a baby
Stop chasing the money, too bad, you’re just a baby
(These mages adore you) x2
Why do you want to be born again? you are just a baby
Why are you playing in the street? you are just a baby

And there is epic meaning or SEO behind it. Lupe Fiasco has played an amazing game here on the hook, referencing six classical music albums by the game’s best.

“Why are you ready to die? » refers to Notorious BIG’s ‘Ready To Die’ album. “Tears Under Eyes” is a clear reference to Lil Wayne’s “The Carter III” album cover. “Keep Your Head Up in the Sky” refers to Drake’s “Nothing Was The Same” album cover. “Stop Chasing Money” is taken from the cover of Nirvana’s “Nevermind” album. ‘Why do you want to be born again?’ is taken from Black Sabbath’s ‘Born Again’ album cover and last line ‘why do you want to play in the street’ refer to Nas’ ‘Illmatic’ album cover.

Notice how Lupe ended each of the six lines above with the phrase “you’re just a baby” and look at all of those six album covers. They all have babies on them. And all these lines were inspired by album covers.

If you ask me, Lupe made some serious puns here. (Begins a slow applause…)
