Word up, my head was bobbing the whole time
Ill have to listen to this again to fully appreciate it...metaphorically deep!
If you're a Hip Hop ni**a how can you not like this song !
Always going to be one of my favorite rappers.
Lupe mad bautiful and his body so flat no homo
No, that was pretty homo.
I mean not that there is anything wrong with that, but it was homo
LUpe is mad beautiful my nigga i love him and his beats!
lupe is an emotional pussy cry baby
Fuck off. These days anyone who expresses their opinion and speaks up about all the bullshit around them are considered haters and cry babies when really they're the only ones who have courages. It's dudes like YOU that are pussy ass robots that don't have the balls to do anything except agree with whatever is popular. One day, if you ever become a MAN, maybe you'll actually have a mind of your own and you'll start to speak up too. You fuckin' scared ass simple minded ass cyborg.
Changed my rating from a 3 to a 5. It takes time for the song to sink in.
if he didn't say "i'm gon be a BAAABBYYYY" i'd give it another star
I like this track. Lupe is a sooo underated. I hope he does well with his next album.
U MUST check this rapper OUT!
I personally thought that this track was pretty dope and contrary to the majority of the comments below, I also thought that the beat was really slick and unique. But then musical tastes are quite subjective. Just glad to hear someone in the Hip-Hop mainstream who actually has the balls to make tracks that are socially conscious and intelligent.
mad respect to Lupe -- one of the only rappers who didn't sell his soul and has the guts to call out obama and the banksters who control this world. keep doin yo thing. i hope you live long enough to awaken more people
BEST RAPPER OUT.........PREIOD...
EMINEM AINT SHIT COMPARED TO LUPE
ahahahahhahaah aaahh shit another fucking retard. you need jesus. sleep at night kid
sell out emo nigga watch all these faggots on his dick while he sells out
Lol u mad bro? Don't worry about it. You'll eventually move out your mom's basement. Keep hope alive

Half of you young cats don't understand half of half of his bars. Walk away.
I understand and I am 17 also Lupe has been my favorite rapper for 3 years
ofc because every young cat is stupid right
why didnt you just say 1/4th of his bars?
16 years old and im from holland prettiee sure i understand more then u. even tough my english sucks. ,
horrible beat seleciton as usual with the past 2 years with lupe
every lyric online suggests something different but if you listen closely hes saying some big thangs people....shots at drake and cole (illuminatti) "And that big ol car, that bass shake that little bars on my base tape and that drake off wanna waco all them j cole's" just sayin listen...
elzhi - that's that one (prod. by black milk)
elzhi - talking in my sleep
mhz - combustion spontaneous
thats what the essence is
once u learn the essence mainstream is over
Hot shit lol. Those are the types of beats Lupe needs to rap over. Lu and Elzhi on a track together would be dope too
and its funny cause his biggest hits (Kick, Push; Superstar, Daydreamin') have been over somewhat simple instrumentals.
YESSS. couldnt put it better myself.
was bumping F&L 1 in the whip the other day and that Lupe is just non existent
Agree all comments...Dope song...beat iz garbage....
this beat actually not that bad the lines are clever and complex sorta like Lupe going over niggas heads again-ILL
Most under rated. this guy does every time with good musical content
Damn this song is good, but the beat is so shitty.
Lupe Lyrics 5/5
vicious track, lupe too nice!
I just want him to make an album with a full orchestra.
Nas did it Kanye did it and Go Go Gadget Flow live is AMAZING.
lol, "You putting me to sleep ni****"
who the hell always produces this guy? great rapper but always way too much going on with his instrumentals. his lyrics are so good that he should be using simple beats that he can MURK
Absolutely. It's a problem with a lot of lyrical artist, especially those looking for mainstream success. They try to ensure the music is as artfully complex as their words, but they fail to realize that it just creates a convoluted product.
With the words you want to challenge a persons curiosity, but not insult their ignorance. With music, you want it to be a backdrop or mood setter but not something that must also be focused on.

Lupe so sick wit word play, he needs to do a joint album with Asher Roth...they both know how to flow and play with words like it a roller coaster ride
After Lasers people look to criticize his music before they actually listen to it honestly.
Nobody beating Lupe lyrically.....NOBODY
He fell off.....how?
5 star lyrics
5 star beat
4 star hook
Best lyricist out.
My YOUTH sounds just like lightening comin down! Raiden it's time to open the portal and let the super saiyan's out! You thought the dark could take the light? That's saying like left is right!
Give Lupe the "rewind that" crown! This is hot but not his best. I give it a 4. A 5 when compared to mainstream.
wow this could have been a good song if not for the hook
If you hate on this then I'd say about 90% of the lines went over your head.
The whole joint was sick but that third verse was just uncalled for...
LUPEback. idc he is one of the best lyrical rappers ever. got all his shit.
^^ Wow, went straight to talking about somebody's genitals lol. There's no doubt in my mind you're heterosexual (sarcasm). Have a nice day Richard Simmons lol. And be sure to check out that website I gave you, get all the latest news lol
anyone know of another awesome hiphop site? this site is honestly falling off
^^you would know from experience, right?
that shit is incredible
seems like you're suffering from small cock syndrome
Gokillurselfhiphop.com.. you get all the updates
Hook was weak, but verses was flame
like every lupe song since 2010
3rd verse >>>>>>
Plain and simple, Lupe Fiasco a legend at work! Dude rippz it on this tune.
amazing. lupe keeps killin' 'em.
Great lyrical flow and rhythm.
Red lights, obey my headlights
the Third verse Killed all the rappers in the game lol
I think it's funny when people behind a fucking keyboard can see where Lupe's dedication lies, and can pinpoint when his heart "isn't in it anymore".
yeah what you got access to his diary? got a hold of his sister at a coffee shop or somethin? typical fucking hipster talk, especially those with their daily dose of "stan" and "dickriding" vocabulary, when they were in the same god damned position when F&L 1/The Cool dropped. all of a sudden, nah these "stans" ain't smart enough to like the same things they like, right? fuck off
keep killin em Lupe.
lol this dude Lupe can't seem to win. When he was lyrical in the beginning of his career, people complained and said he needed to dumb it down(F&L and The Cool). He did, then people said he needed to be lyrical again(Lasers). He started being lyrical again and then people complained about the beats (Friend of the People). He changed the beats(and was lyrical) but people started complaining saying he was being too preachy (F&L 2) LOL. At the end of the day people will never be satisfied. Moral of the story: Fuck what people say :)
his main problem is his cboice of beats. the productions on lasers , friend of the people, enemy of the state were truely terrible.
it got so bad i didnt even bother listening to food and liquor 2.
Lmao, word. People don't seem to know what they really want.
yap bro This real words fuuuuck the haters lupe fiasco bast Rapper alive yap I said it
You Lupe stans are something else. This is average.
You are not bright.
This beat is fuckin hot u niggas need ya ears checked this is the hottest record this year
Lyrics are nice but I'm sick of these fucking techno, wack beats. Get back to the F&L 1, Fahrenheit mixtapes sound.
this nigga aint no goat aint even in the top 30's
loooooooooooooooooool shut fuck up nigga
This song is ILL, constant lyricism from beginning to end
Luuuupppee!!!!!!!!!!! GOAT, for the ppl that said lu fell off after the cool, GTFOH
go rap genius to see the genius of lupe. but disregard the explanations for first 8 bars...they are off.
Goat flow n lyric.. just so so beat
lyricism....deal with it haterz
Lupe = LEGEND!
simple as that, if you disagree you have no knowledge of hip-hop
"Got no rights like NASCAR, or a black man in the deep south during Jim Crow with the po-lice.
That's 99 problems with a ho twice
From no life to Frankenstein, got it stitched up. I'm so nice!"
He's a problem!
deezy clearly doesnt understand it.
Thanks for pointing out some of the lamest bars I've ever read in my life
Lupe needs a collabo album with Kanye. They're both in their heads they need to get back to that "Touch the Sky" feel. And RZA needs to produce the whole album.
beat sounds like somthin from black eye peas
doesn't sound like hip hop
So please... tell us what does "hiphop" sound like. go on...
You "sound" like a bitch!!!
nahh it ok
One word: HOT!!
Lupe man love this dude.
It's a fucking shame how Lupe has fallen off so badly after The Cool. There were a few nice songs on FNL2, but he's too inside his own head. He's starting to become like Canibus with his horrible beat choices and boring rapping. Get your soul back, Lu. Where's Soundtrakk
The synth beats are wack and need to go. Fuck this Lasers shit
my bad not the 3rd anon, the 4th
Personally, I think this song is better than most of the songs on F&L 2. It's more lyrical, has more replay value, and it sounds like he actually wants to rap. I literally listened to F&L 2 for 2 weeks then I was done with it. Obviously he's getting back where he needs to be. People need to stop being so quick to say someone fell off. The 1st, 3rd, and last anons need to "fall off" the face of the earth lol
Truth. Seems like The Cool is about as cold as Lupe'll ever be...
I agree actually. His heart ain't into it anymore and he hides it through sententious lyrics with perfunctory rhyme schemes and a lazy flow. I'm sure he means what he says, it just doesn't seem like he puts the amount of work into that he used to. It's a shame cause he used to be my favorite rapper.
Both of you shut the fuck up, faggots. He's terrible now, you can tell he's not enjoying making music anymore
People Like you the one holding lupe buck if u want hes old shit Go and buy it this song is dope as fuck and sex hottest song in the site !!
shut fuck up
Awesome! I think he released this cuz of 5 am in Toronto.
Woulda made the MTV list but lupe too cool
FIRE That complex lyrical shit
THIS is what I want from Lupe Fiasco. New sound with some old Lupe lyricism. Fucking dope.
Fuego. Bars on bars on bars.
Heat! Other than Lasers, Lupe is always on point!!!

No rights like Nascar, lol this nigga.
lupe goes hard
I've listen to this and Danny Brown song like 20 times already, and I'm still deciphering the lyrics. They both have shit that fly's over most peoples heads.
Lupe went in!!
loopey should get off the drugs, this nigga a loser
its got a futuristic Dead Prez-Hip Hop sound to it.
The hook was meh, but Lupe's verses killed that shit. Lupe is nice and always has been. The beat is cool and it's not too far from his style. The people complaining about the beat saying it's "electronic bullshit" and how he needs to work with "real hip-hop producers" need to understand that with the exception of his mixtapes, Lupe never really rapped over traditional boom-bap beats in the first place. His beats always had somewhat of a futuristic sound to them, just check F&L and The Cool. Nonetheless, it's good to hear that he's starting to rap with passion again.
better than drake's homo track
Better than Drake's song. Drake will fade out one day, even if he is younger. Lupe is eternal.
Stop acting stupid dumb bitch
no. stop glorifying him like he's a demigod
yall can say what you want but even lasers was not bad at all. Maybe 3 or 4 songs were bad, but the rest actually was good. Nice to see that lupe still can rip a track apart
co sign too
High Five buddy!
Drake VS Lupe .. Like the day Drake Dropped his EP a few days before Lupe Fiasco's first album ..
Drakes fan base- bitches and bitch ass niggas. Honestly, there are alot of them so of course he's going to win in sales.
Yeah because 13 year old girls set the bar for real hip hop. Get the fuck outta here.
lupe don't want to go against drake when it comes to sales, let's be real.
fuckin fire brh
Lupe went in.
Solid jam, and mostly happy he just ripped this track like he can instead of complaining about some shit... Hopefully this keeps up and he gets back to where he was with food and liqueur 1 and the cool.
On a side note I would love to see Lupe team up with Kanye for a couple of tracks on his next album.
That where I think he is "stuck" at right now. He wants some deep message in every song. Im sure there are deeper meanings in this one as well but it has that rawness to it.
Hands down,nobody fucking with Lupe Lyrically...Maybe a couple MC's, but that's it!
Once again it must be said: Lyrically nobody's fucking with Lupe lyrically- his one weak point is his hooks. Every verse is lethal especially that LAST verse my god.
here we go again....yawn..if you really think so is lupe fiasco exclusive to logical fallacy in hiphop???? You're just a hater.
his weak point is his logical fallacies
Lupe !! This nice
this song is dope!
even some of the lesser quality lupe tracks are still miles ahead of most competitions in regards to creativity and lyrics.
His flow and lyrics are nearly always on point. Another great Lupe track.
CHI TOWN GOOD LOOK! You can never tell with Lupe but he repped it proper on this one
Feeling it, but not feeling it at the same time
Hell yea, loving this! Jammin'
food & liquor + the cool are classics.. idk how i feel about the rest of this shit.
This beat is so hard. Lupe always is solid.
I like it!
This is hot af wow lupe is back
Fuck the beat. Corny ass hook as well. Verses were on point nice to have the old flow back tbh.
wooo lupe is back!
what a beat..
how can u hate on this this beat is amazing better than tht wack drake record this is crazy hot
HAHA you got jokes
great flow n lyrics..
The beat is meh, but Lu got bars so 3. Lupe needs to work with better producers.
you think this dude had to become so wack?
I hate this shit....
Lupe a great lyricist but he has a terrible ear for beats.
I agree, although I like the beat but I don't think Lupe should rap over this shit. He needs some raw beats like I dunno, EL-P or Aesop Rock, Lupe would be a much better artist in my books if he dropped all the commercial electro shit and just rapped to some fine nasty tight beats. Lupe doesn't ride this beat at all and his lyrics are becoming horrible.
*nice selection (excluding some of Lasers)
Really? This song may be aweful, but he usually has an ice selection of production on his album.
dude is wacker than him claiming he skateboards
Hopsin does not suck... smh
hopsin sucks aight get tht through ya head nigga
