Lupe Fiasco Impersonates Rick Ross, 2 Chainz During Twitter Rant

Lupe Fiasco says he "liked" Kendrick Lamar's verse on "Control," comments on fans being "easily impressed."

With a newly private Twitter profile, Chicago wordsmith Lupe Fiasco let loose another Twitter rant as he he sent out dozens of Tweets last night (August 12), attempting to impersonate a handful of rappers including Rick Ross, 2 Chainz, Tyler, The Creator, and Pusha T.

A sampling of Lupe’s rapper “rebuttals” can be found below (via Imgur.com). As of now, it does not appear that any of the artists who Lupe impersonated have responded to his Tweets.

The Food & Liquor II rapper also commented on fans being “easily impressed” and shared his thoughts on the state of rap as he stated, “I really don’t want to but fuck it. We all rap. Some of us just rap to rap but others of us RAP.”

Lupe was also asked by one fan to share his thoughts on Kendrick Lamar’s verse on Big Sean’s “Control” to which he replied, “I liked it!”

The Windy City emcee’s latest Twitter rant comes shortly after he voiced his thoughts on race and the George Zimmerman trial and as a result switched his Twitter profile to private following the backlash which followed.

    Always trying to make Lupe look like the bad guy. You mudafugas

  • Drake runs rap

    Lupe is an irrelevent washed up hasbeen. He tries to go pop to gain some fans but he fails. Now his only method of gaining relevence is ranting lupe is done no1 gives a fuck about him.

    • Lame Lupe

      "His label made him do pop tracks, you moron." Get out of here with that Cop-Out bullshit. Lupe is corny, his platform is corny, he "intellectual mc's" should be smart enough to make cleaver songs that have mass appeal and still educate people. If 2 Chainz can reach more people then Lupe then Lupe is a dumb ass.

    "Ross best selling album sold 750k" A lot of rappers these days can't even sell 200,000. Stop the hate before it's too late.

    "but Lupe has 3 Gold Albums" So does Ross.

    biggest cornball rapping

  • KidOnTheCouch

    Maybe Lupe should stop talking a bunch of shit about equally irrelevant rappers,get off laptop,deactivate twitter,start making Food & Liquor again. Otherwise I don't care what he has to say and neither does anyone, but his hardcore skate stans.

    • J. Kill

      I can GUARANTEE you more people care about what he says than what your broke ass says. Dumb kid on a couch. Get a fuckin nanny.

  • J. Kill

    "Poor Decisions" by Wale feat. Lupe and Ross

  • J. Kill

    hahaha Lupe knows a thing or two about fuckin murdering someone else on their own track. Keep at 'em Lu, they know not what they do.

  • drizzy!

    Fuck Lupe. I'm still mad about Lasers being a wack ass piece of commercial trash. If you're going to go commercial at least make it listenable.

  • Anon

    Lupe stop making "Internet Headlines" on all your wack opinions, get some good production and make a fkn good album.

    • Will

      Food and liquors was a good album the fuck where you been? He had one of the best albums of this year sheep.

    • chuckifyoubuck

      lol how you gonna call someones OPINIONS wack? theyre called opinions for a reason; everyones entitled to their own. Psh wtf you know about good production? you obviously aint ever heard of The Cool

    "I really don't want to but fuck it." You might want to add a comma next time playa.#LMFAO

  • Kendrick = Mediocre

    This new generation of kids born in the 90s are easily impressed, I agree. But I guess you can't blame them because they grew up on wack shit. So to them, certain shit that is average to us, is "classic" to them. It's sad, really.

    • sean

      thats utter bollox , I've been into hip hop since 89 , and I must say KL Section 80 is actually one of the finest albums released in the last 20 years , list , then list again .

    • Shark

      Did you just compare GKMC to the Illiad? Just get the fuck outta here.

    • J. Kill

      Actually fuck that, Kendrick isn't just lyrical, he's goddamn cinematic. Have ya'll even heard Good Kid Maad City? That was like the Iliad of rap. That album is like some historical, poetic shit. If that's not "lyrical" then I'm movin to fuckin Kazakhstan.

    • J. Kill

      What does "lyrical" even mean? If Kendrick isn't lyrical iono who the fuck else can be considered lyrical. Black Thought is what I consider lyrical, Mos Def is what I consider lyrical, Lupe Fiasco is lyrical. I have to say, Kendrick is pretty damn lyrical. He may not be the absolute best by any means, but damn is he freakin smooth with his flow.

    • Sam

      I agree the funny thing is that Jay had the best verse on that song. Sean stepped his up too more than likely saw Lamar's verse. I laugh at my generation, because actual lyrical cats they run past. Kendrick is trendy and he can rap, so they hop on the train and they shove him down your throat.

    • J. Kill

      Kendrick is far from mediocre. listen to something like A.D.H.D. or Rigamortis, then come back an try to tell me that nigga is mediocre.

    • Anonymous

      they were just as easily impressed by lu in the first place though.

  • Anonymous

    ... Lupe mad because Kendrick is getting the hype Lupe could've got if he made better decisions.

    • Sam

      Lupe is a better rapper period, to lupe he laughs, because he been on the lyrical path some Compton wannabe pseudo thug intellectual comes along and people suck his dick. Kendrick can't even hold Lupe or Mr Muthafuckin Exquires drinks lol.

    • J. Kill

      Rich niggas makin poor decisions. Lupe was never about the hype. Look at his shades. Those things is ugly as fuck, but he doesnt give a shit. Mad respect for him.

  • DaMamba

    Does Lupe even make music anymore?

  • Marx1684

    He's mad b/c people don't respect real lyricism in a profession were people get paid for their words. It's like being a gourmet chef that sees people paying for 5 star prices for a Whopper. It doesn't make sense but in Hip Hop it happens.

    • Will

      Good analogy, it's like the kids who go around paying hundreds of dollars on sneakers, when they can find one that is of the same materials for an actual real price. Kendrick is a rapper who is sold as gold, when he actual is plastic hence why Lupe said what he said and I agree.

    • J. Kill

      indeed. somebody retweet this shit so lupe can retweet it or something.

    • Anonymous

      Nah it's a bad analogy actually,he is mad because he could not adapt to the game and to full of himself that he won't even bother make his style eveolve. Quit that gourmet shit, it is not the same business, you cannot compare a whopper to gourmet food because they do not play in the same league. it's like comparing Mike Tyson to Michael Jordan. It doesn't make no sense. Second point, Lupe is an extremely good rapper but he got lost somehow on his way. He seriously needs to get himself together

      This comment says it all. Close the thread.

      Good analogy ^this

  • swrgerg

    Lupe been sounding mad since Lasers. Nigga hasn't even been dope since his 2nd LP so he should shut the fuck up and try to spend more time reinventing himself

    • ETK

      ^They don't count F&LII because they were all too busy dickriding Nas' album like everyone else

    • Will

      Food and liquors II was not good to you? It had heavy lyricism and the beats were much better this time around. Hell he had one of the best albums of 2012, I tunes covered it. I think you are reaching when you said he needs to reinvent himself. I respect your opinion, but if you do not follow Lupe you have to be careful, because I heard Lamar's work and the dude is hype hell he cannot even compete with Lupe lol. Lupe would rap circles around dude.

    • J. Kill

      of course he was mad since lasers. he was basically forced to sell out on that track and he knew it. unlike other rappers though, he didnt take that shit lying down. he fucked with Atlantic so much that they probably regretted ever signing him. homie didn't even release the second part of his sequel album! thats a direct FUCK YOU to his label. this guy is as real as it gets, and he doesn't give a fuck about people like you who don't realize that.

    • Anonymous

      although i'll take exception to the last album cause i didn't copp it or hear it, i agree.

    • Co Sign

      Word. Could not have said it better.

  • roz54

    We're easily impressed? Lupe is too busy being an arrogant prick to realize fans are just excited to see a good rapper directly address his competition so that the ball can get rolling again with competitiveness is hiphop. It's fun to hear rappers go head to head against each other if you're tired of the whole club,pussy,cars,money rapping.

    • Will

      Some dumb dudes on this site. He said he likes the verse and to the dude at the bottom saying, he aint that nice he can rap laps around your favorite rapper negro read a book lol. The problem he has is when people hype up verses off of bs controversy. The lyrics were not that piercing, as some stans are saying but it was good.

    • ETK

      he said he liked the verse, foh both of you

    • Anonymous

      real talk. homie talks down to people enough. nigga, you ain't that nice.

  • D

    I'm a big Lupe fan but it isn't respectful to hatefully mock others. Not cool

  • Chris S

    Lupe does [insert rapper's name] rap better than [insert said rapper's name] does. Probably besides Em and Andre Ooh/Knockin at the Door > Biggie flow Hi Definition > Snoop Dogg flow Don't Get It Twisted/The Die > Twista/Ludacris flow B.M.F. > Rick Ross flow Outty 5000 > Nas flow (post-It Was Written) Conflict Diamonds > Kanye flow

    • Chris S

      Thanks. I don't think Kendrick is trash by any means. I just don't think he's special. However, I haven't listened to him like I do Lupe, so maybe that would change things. I mean seriously though, how many rappers now do you think you would actually have to "study" their lyrics. Not listen. Not listen closely. Study. "You gotta go to Harvard to be a Lupe stan"

    • Shark

      ^Will co-sign. People fall too easily to the bandwagon. Not a big fan of Lupe, but I can agree with him here that most people nowadays are really impressionable.

    • Will

      I think you are the only smart one up here today lol. The world is filled with Kendrick stans who think anything this nigga does is gold lol. If you do not agree, you do not know hip-hop the same nigga's who did not fuck with him when I did, are dick riding the fuck out of him now. He is ass now, his potential could have been realized then, but he is just hype now. Last good thing from him was Section 80 not Ass city. Lupe would rap circles around this clown and he knows it that is why he is not moved but it did give him a chuckle.

  • dentaldamboy

    Lupe Fiasco is mad because the rappers he impersonated are successful with each of them having at least one platinum album. Fiasco can't even go wood.

    where the hits fam?

  • BUTLERTRON

    WESLEY, I DETECT SOMEONE'S BUTT HAS BEEN HUUUURT.

  • FON-Z

    he right tho... most are easily impressed because all you care about is the beat, once you listen to what Rick Ross, French Montana, 2 Chainz and all them garbage ass rappers are sayin you'll see that there's no punch lines, no clever metaphors, they cant stick to a topic without switching to something random... they have nursery rhymes. I'm with Lupe all day, at least this nigga can spit some shit that will make you say uuu!!

    • Anonymous

      while hes wrong to have slept on him because of it, he's totally right. there are maybe 3 tracks on his last cd that had beats I actually want to listen/ride to. the others are good if you're listening to the project as a whole with your headphones in.. but thats about it. his first 2 albums were fire. last good, big hit was the show goes on. deal with it, his beat selection is whack.. still love him though!

    • ^

      Typical mainstream fanboy.

      Maybe if Lupe cared more about beats I wouldn't have given up on him after the Cool

      Good joke, dentalbitch. Their shit was not poetry, just mumbling about useless shit.

    • dentaldamboy

      They did listen to what they are saying and all I hear are classic lines of poetry. On the same level as shakespere if not better.
