This is Track 3 from Lupe Fiasco’s debut album entitled: Lupe Fiasco’s Food & Liquor
The title of the album refers to the various Food and Liquor stores in Chicago neighborhoods (Lupe is from Chicago). It also refers to the “constant tug of war between good (food) and evil (liquor)”. The title is a philosophy that Fiasco believes about human nature.
On April 30th 2015, Lupe released a music video for “Just Might Be OK” consisting of a video montage of Chicago locals. It culminates with scenes from protests that took place in Chicago in response to the non-indictment of police officer Daniel Pantaleo, who used a chokehold on Eric Garner while trying to arrest him. Garner died as a result of his injuries.
At the time of the video’s release, massive protests continued in Baltimore, in relation to the death of Freddie Gray – a black man who died while in police custody.
