JAY ( 2007 HIS FLOW RIP)
Remember "Conflict Diamonds", "Switch", and the Entire "Cool" Album? There was a time when Lupe could make a point AND keep his flow raw...... Now hes just a mumbling artist putting too much into the point and no effort in the delivery..... Every new track is more and more disappointing.... Bummer
lupe is a weak-minded faggot. the dude who made the mixtapes and the first two solos was somebody else.
THE MOST LYRICAL ALIVE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
"Binoculars on my peep hole"
"Got a booboo in my backyard"
best lyricist my ass.
can tell "context" is a foreign word to you.....yea go ahead go to your online dictionary
Lots of people don't like Lupe... Those people usually don't read well.
Lupe is for dumb people who listen to him to make themselves feel smart once in their lives.
Lupe, Kendrick & Talib making the best music, best lyricists now.
This nigga lupe gotta be the most underrated artist ever he rep that chi town rt this shit goes hard azz mutha!
so tired of this fool
"The greatest rapper alive?... crashed into DOOM, the greatest rapper arrived, no, the greatest rapper a LIE!" Excerpt from this song. ENOUGH WITH THE GOD DAMNED LISTS. Shit is pointless. Who cares who YOU think is the "greatest" in whatever order you wish to place them so neatly, nobody really cares, and if you want to debate your opinion to theirs, its apples to oranges, but I'll be over here eating pears. PEACE. 5 STAR LUPE BACK!
Honorable Mentions: JayZ,Common,MosDef,Scarface
Biggie, Jay-Z & Nas. & thats it...

like Sandra responded I'm shocked that some one can profit $9048 in one month on the internet. did you look at this link Go to site and open Home for details >>>>>> www.jobs47.com
This is why Lupe Fiasco is the greatest lyricist to have ever touched the pen. Simply amazing.
This is why Lupe doesn't understand what music is about.
A bit too confusing for me. If anyone wants to break down the meaning of that song, that would be sick.
Go to rap genius and check out the meanings
what. the. fuck. lupe. bonkers. just bonkers. most genius shit ever. wowszers.
god damn. i can play dis all year
wtf. mind fucked. damn Lupe.
Jesus Christ! This is BRILLIANT LYRICISM Awesome Job Lupe!
pure lyricism, don't hate get educated or edjamakated you Ignants
When will Lupe ever go back to making good music?
That nigga sampled holy grail and somthin else and that song n beats annoying but he snapped, bear trap rap dont step inside the clench
yeah i noticed the same piano riff from the holy grail beat they played in that Zane Lowe interview... not taking anything away from this though
Lupe is retarded for letting other people like chief keefs opinions influence his future. Thanks to them he makes this mainstream music lately.
still one of the best!
Lupe just always on these mainstream wack ass beats.. 4/5
Prolly one of the best songs ever Made... I dare you bust down these lines.. that's the golden time of day like shit......
nigga this beat is annoying....solid rhymes though
Uneducated folks "SWAG" definition - It was developed in the 60's by HOLLYWOOD gay men, "SECRETLY WE ARE GAY!" People with no education will fall victims to anything!
its originates from the word swagger you idiot
way before the 60s also
Definitions change all the time.
Fat, gay, black. Bad, ill, bourgeois.
Bourgeois use to mean the have nots. Black use to mean bleak, bleached, otherwise white people.
Simmer on that while u were thinking that u just had to avoid unknowingly calling urself gay.
How about unknowingly calling urself white or black. It gets deeper than defense. Play offense. Know what u want.
this shit is heavy!! this is new school hip-hop i been looking for!
This shit dope af but Lupe need to put down the lab coat
and pick up some swag.. We all know he arguably the smartest
emcee to ever get mainstream notoriety but u don't win fans by
making everyone feel stupid.. Maybe he really should "Dumb it down"
cause as dope as he is, all that intellectual shit is not entertaining..
That's what his new album is - peep his tweets. He said he's going mainstream with it... and you can here it in the "Crack" preview... I think he is just trying to make it up to his core fans with all his songs so far this year... a preemptive apology if you like
He is not trying to make everyone feel stupid. He is trying to encourage everyone to be more educated. Wtf he need swag for? His intelligence is his swag.
Lupe would lyrically destroy your favorite rapper. With ease.
Some really dense wordplay on this one, Lupe Fiasco showcasing his lyrical fitness! Shaka Zulu!
TOO BAD CHIEF KEEF JA RULED LUPE'S CAREER!
U keef fans are so uneducated.
Too bad your dumb as fuck.
This is fucking crazy.
am i the only one here who thinks The Cool was his best album?
nah the cool was dope
Some of y'all need to listen to Food and Liquor smh...
SMH at people dissin Lupe but praisin Kanye.
fuck sell outs
fuck losers who won't let Lasers go even tho it came out 3 years ago
As Charles Barkley would say, "this shit is turrrible!"
Nice Job Lu/ Lyrical genius at its finest.
I swear lupe has the worst ear for beats now
If you are referring to this beat, you have missed the point in it's entirety. Hahaha re-listen, maybe that will 'jog your memory' ;)
guccie is garbage idc how street u are listening to that just makes u dumber then u sound. u prob a child or a man that never grew up bra... ignorant people listen to ignorant music that recycles tha same shit. im from the street too but if u cant give this props atleast then u r not truly hiphop u don't need to like but hiphop respects lupe.
Niggas said they rather listen to chief keef, gucci, boosie? lmaoo.. Im from the street, i fuck wit real street music but that dont mean i gotta b stupid and stay stuck on dat noise. Its good to hear sum pure lyricism like lupe, cole, king Los. I apologize for even makin dat comparison
I know you can rhyme lupe!!!! Now give me something I can feel. Give me a SONG!!! Stop Flexin!!!!
we all know he can rhyme, but he's gonna remind you he can spit every fuckin time. that's what real rappers do
you wanna feel somethin nigga, go tune into some drake
minimal beat and lu's lyrics, dope
This beat is hurting my fucking ears, I'm just gonna go read the lyrics, thats always the best part anyway.
if you wana listen to street shit i suggest you dont click on anything lupe related
yall would honestly listen to a bunch of typical gangsta shit? thts so old and hard to listen too..lame as fuck small minded hos
Wow Guwop needs to put this dude in his place, rap so damn corny dis aint no g-shit, WHERE BALLOUT, OJ, MIGOS AND YOUNG SCOOTER AT? BOOSIE COMIN HOME IN NOVEMBER, A LOT OF THESE NEW CATS LIKE LOU FIASCO FINNA DISAPPEAR THEN
MAN ALL THE PPL YOU NAMED HAVED DISAPPEARED ONLY DUDES WITH REAL TALENT THRIVE IN HIP HOP. THATS WHY YOU SEE LUPE ARTICLES EVERY OTHER DAY.
LOL this kills anything and everything by Migos, OJ, Gucci, Boosie, and Webbie. And fuck Boosie. Keep his ass locked up.
Yep, dis dat dude, he said Obama was a terrorist, i can't fuck with that. Wheres that real street music, he aint know about terror, the president helps us, i come from the mud, growin up with three 6 and prophet posse, now i mostly bump any shit zaytoven produced like OJ, Gooch, Rocko, Gorilla Zoe, Chief Keef, the street shit u can relate to, I cannot relate to this shit!
AYE! isnt dis dat dudes dat said obama was a biggest terrorist? fukk this rapping ass clowns, i finna bump som Project Pat and dat gucci/scooter tape, dis rapper just keep makings noise, can understand shit what he says,
Whoop whoop, Lupe isnt new, he came out with a song called the show goes on wich was much harder than this, he needs to link up with ICP or Boondox and drop some real heat, i fuck with boosie and gucci, aint sure about migos, versace and baker man went ham but i prefer som Blaze Ya Dead home 2 be honest
Real talk, Migos go hard, Oj juice go hard, Gucci go hard, Boosie coming home real soon, Webbie been on his trill shit, fuck this rooke thinking he can rap like the trap-cats
I'm a lupe fan but, I'm going to have to listen to that a few timess
Lupe's shit is so lyric-heavy that you gotta really be hungry for lyrics and take time to digest it. If you're looking for a 4-piece chicken nugget you're gonna get overstuffed. If you're a 'I don't really listen to lyrics' person...also known as a stupid asshole...your brain is gonna say 'overload' and you're gonna be turned off.
Fuck these complaints. Lupe's spitting on this
Your opinion is very welcome!
Your opinions are welcome :)
Lupe always comes correct, he's saying alot, so its kinda hard for him to keep a great flow, track is still nice tho..I'm tryna be as nice as him or even better as I grow.Plus my ep just dropped, been getting good reviews...Here's it http://www.hotnewhiphop.com/austin-einstein-so-serious-mixtape.95769.html
as Jeremy implied I am stunned that a stay at home mom can get paid $6642 in one month on the internet. look at here now... www.Cafe44.com
This just in: Kendrick ate a burrito and had to shit. HHDX sources may believe this could be a "diss shit" at other rappers. We will keep you posted after he wipes since we have no other stories at this time.
I really miss his flow from The Cool and everything before. He needs to get back to rapping like his Fahrenheit tapes.. fuckin ridiculous.. He still snapping, but the flow too lazy now
I enjoy the lyrics... but his fucking flow makes it kinda boring for me... had a similar problem with most of FL2
Hopefully his next album isnt the same.
you fools listen to music or do you just skim through it?
please lupe go hide somewhere
FUCK LUPE HE DONT EVEN FLOW NO MORE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! GOD THIS CANT BE THE SAME NIGGA WHO RELEASED FOOD AND LIQUOR AND THE COOL
holy fuck man.. so repetative.. sick but got boring after the first bars, gotta get a bit more creative bra
this is gonna need a couple of replays for me to catch everything,packed to the brim with pure lyricism.lupe that dude
I havent been a lupe fan since "The Cool". He's just overthinking it man. It's like he's trying to prove hes smart by rapping smart. Instead of just rapping and letting his intelligence show through being free. Its ok to stand up for a cause, but my man is overthinking it. damn
i agree as well. its a real shame 'cause lupe from FL1, Cool, Farenheit is dope
in a world full of rappers that underthink.. Why the fuck would you bitch? lol
I couldn't agree with you more family.. He's thinking waaaay to much. He needs to just be himself..
lu spazzin on these fools.
I'm laughing at whoever tried to remake this beat for Lupe. Whackest remake of Holy Grail
He straight spittin.wordplay is sick.you listen to lil B. so this ain't your thing .understandable.
BasedGod is the greatest though.
IF YOU DON'T THINK SO I HOPE YOUR FAMILY GETS TIED UP AND BURNED ALIVE!!
Intellect is something that really irritates alot of people because people don't like to think. This song is just great for the TRUE hip hop listeners. I don't have to turn up. I don't have to swag it out. This is just those who like lyrics and bars. This is not a punchline rap but a narrative. You ADHD folks need to calm the fuck down and just listen. The beat was a bit repetitive with the piano key but the beat still served it's purpose and went well with his lyrics....Lupe is still a great in the game...
FIRE!!!!! NOT AIRBRUSHED AND PERFECT EDGES BUT I BET IT'LL CUT A NIGGA DEEP...AND LAMES BE QUIET AND STOP LISTENING TO GARBAGE AND YOU COUD RECOCOGNZE TRU RAP- NOT HIP POP PR HIP HOP....THIS NINJA CAUGHT WRECK EFFORTLESSLY!!!!! 1
This GQ dude is a pure diqrider.....
Not really, I just enjoy strong lyrics with a message. But everyone is entitled to their own opinion.
Fuck Lupe he dont know shit bout shit
GET RAPED HOE NIGGA!!!
Would have loved to be at the session, where Lu was like yeah this is the beat I want... Dafuq?
I know how Lupe sees rap, and how he writes it down. He is a lyricist. He doesn't care much for beats and such. He does it for the love. He realised that and quit commercial rap. These are just some reasons why he doesn't appeal to the people. A lot of people talk down on him. He sees beyond that, and makes music for Hip Hop, not you.
This track is just boring. There is real Hip Hop out with harmony, rhythm, delivery and lyrics. If you don't have it all in today's day, then F you, you're out. The name brand won't carry a lack of Musicality
Crazy..I dont know what he is on about yet..But its great.
The only reason I gave this 1/5 is because DX wouldn't let me give it 0.
HORRIBLE! Lupe is complete garbage.
Fuck You say nigga? Lupe is coldest out
This is one of the greatest hip hop songs of all time nigga you crazy? I'll hunt you.
its just too much info, random comments, loose associations. No coherent narrative. and a GOD AWFUL UNBELIEVABLY BAD BEAT. Like it was made on a Midi player from 1984.
You my friend, are sadly mistaken! There is actually one LONG story line that your brain couldnt grasp! sorry, try again.
Lupe = White peoples favorite rapper since the beginning.
Really? so is that becuz you equate white people with intellectual,smart,thoughtful rhymes and black people with ignorant,simple,ratchet ass,unattainable material item rhymes? Your ignorance is oozing my man, wipe it off
I love a challenge, now I'm going to go do my homework!
THIS GOTTA BE THE ILLEST SHIT I'VE HEARD IN MY ENTIRE RAP LIFE (OUTSIDE OF ILLMATIC). I CAN'T GET OVER HOW GENIUS THIS SHIT IS.
LUPE HATERS NEED TO GET OVER THEMSELVES FOR REAL.
Thank you!!!!!! Finally someone understands what Hip Hop is about.
this nigga spittin his ass off tho
I like the lyrics, but the beat is terrible.
song sucks big time
Just like all of Lupe's tracks make me do, I must listen to over and over again to put it all together. Thanks Lupe!! I appreciate the word play fam.
Most Common Criticisms of Lu
1.He hasnt made a classic album since F&L (The Cool is a classic in many peoples mind. Also one classic album is one more than 99% of rappers)
2.He is too preachy (If he wasnt around , what other mainstream rapper would say what he does?)
3.He needs to just shut up and rap (Why? The man cant have beliefs and speak up about them?)
4.Chief punked him. (Lol, true. But why get involved in some BS beef with Keef. We all know he wont be relevant in a few months. He really isnt relevant now.)
5.He is irrelevant (Obviously he is or you wouldnt care enough to listen to him or comment on him.
6.Lasers was trash (Wrong. Lasers was his worst album so far, but still a good album. It is like saying Kobes worst season was 03 -04. Kobes worst season is better than most players best season. Just like Lupes worst album is better than most rappers best album.
7. His beats are wack (This is Valid. Many of his beats are different. Some are wack.)
The truth is Lupe attracts so much hate because he says the things that most n*ggas are afraid to hear or refuse to hear. If you listened to his message, you would be forced to critically think about many things (Hip-hop, Money, Wealth, Race, Government, US Foreign Policy, etc). Also it is basically impossible to understand all of his rhymes on the first listen. Many of his song (including this one) require a little research. Many n*ggas dont want to do that. But they cant ignore him completely, he is too talented. So they must hate.
He's boring as shit
Summed up really well.
But his beat selection is getting really bad. He's an amazing emcee. But he NEEDS amazing beats to create dope music.
OK, a couple issues with the previous comment from "What the F***".
1.Why would you give up on an artist after one "disappointing (in your opinion) album? There are not many artists who have not had a disappointing album at some point in their career.
2.Come on man, the second coming of Jesus? Lupe is my favorite rapper but calm down. Also, I dont want to get too religious but Jesus will be the second coming of Jesus.
3.Lasers came out in March 2011. Let it go.
4.We all know Lasers is not what Lupe wanted it to be. Hence why it took so long to come out. However, think about if that album included the songs that were supposed to be on there (Shinning Down, What you want, Stereo Sun). It would have been a much more complete album.
So the lesson here is move on. By your own words Lupe is one of the greatest emcees ever. Why continue to harbor on the past? Why miss out on some of the gems that he is putting out now? Why continue to hate? Just stop and enjoy.
Lasers sucks donkey scrotum! You lost me at 6. Lasers doesn't just suck, it sucks because his prior releases were phenomenal (a drastic let down effect). This let down effect was further magnified by the fact that Lupe whined about the label not releasing the project and the nigga had his fans protest on his behalf. To drop that piece of shit after all that, utterly pathetic on his part.
Dude is mad talented and arguably one of the greatest "emcees" ever. There is no denying that. I just hate Lasers and everything surrounding that pop sounding bullshit (Alex da kid...gtfo), that I essentially gave up on Lupe. After The Cool, I thought Lupe was the second coming of Christ. I have honestly never been more disappointed with an album, ever. It's not the worst album, just the most utterly disappointing album I have ever heard.
Perfectly stated. BTW I liked Lasers. Never understood why it got so much hate.
co sign this
BARS BARS BARS!!! beat is weak though
Re-looped holy grail was the point.
re-looped "holy grail" duh...
This nigga is beyond boring.
... Just plain ass boring cheap ass production...
sounds like holy graill
No replay value
THE GOAT KILLS IT AGAIN
Lupe seeks so hard for attention because he has been out of the mainstream for quite some time now. He says he doesn't care about all that? That is bullshit! If he didn't care he wouldn't have named his album after Holy Grail and Yeezus. He strives so hard to be a Kendrick or a Kanye - maybe he paved the way for Kendrick - but does anyone seriously believe that he is (or ever will be) capable of making a new album as consistent and flawless as his first two? He went Dwight Howard-bitchy around the time of Lasers. And ppl do not like that unless it's on some Kanye type of shit. Like Kanye can do whatever he wants - because that is what we all expect from him on some level. Lupe is more in the conscious lane or was - and nobody expected him to do what he did. He sold out, wouldn't admit it - blamed it on the label - and kept on making the same type of weird EDM/Rockish even when he had creative control (FOTP). He went "full retard" at some point. When I see a new Lupe track I always listen to it because of his previous body of work and because I enjoyed parts of his last album. I somehow always come away disappointed. His lyricism is always on point. He just kind of lost his edge. He isn't as interesting anymore in my eyes. Had he stayed tighter with 'Ye his career might have looked different today. I'll say: Relax Lu', take your time and be original. The last time I've heard something truly original from him was "Double Burger with Cheese".
oh I listened to his music! I know everything about his situation!
god damn moron
It wasn't the same bullshit beats. they were all shit, but FOTP was more electro than Lasers' chart-oriented material. fuckin listen to them again when you have the chance.
there was no need for his leftovers, but he used them anyway because he was toying with his DJ gig at the time. Those beats were actually what he expected to put in F&L2: Part 2 until he scrapped it. you can read everywhere about that shit, and if you choose to ignore his DJ stint then you're a fuckin moron
hahahaha.. My info? I've listened to his music. Why would he use the same bullshit beats on his mixtape? Lupe could get beats quickly if he wanted to. There was no need for the "leftovers". It was just his style at that time.
Lupe can't reinvent himself. Fact. FOTP = Lasers. Fact.
so Camar, read up on your motherfucking history
iight listen up pimpin'
FOTP was full of Lasers throwaway beats, which stems from the same situation. But those beats weren't exactly like Lasers, Lasers was more pop. FOTP's bad stuff was more electro than pop.
Lupe was on board with the electro stuff, he had started a small DJ gig with some other niggas by then. that's why Friend of the People sounded like it did. The Lasers sound - which was DIFFERENT but still bad - was mostly out of his control.
I didn't just get that info from a Lupe interview, from SEVERAL Lupe interviews confirming the same shit. where did YOU get your info from is what I should be askin
Fuck you for just assuming that I haven't read my "history".
He did NOT change his sound for the label. When Friend Of The People dropped everybody was expecting that old Lupe flavor that we came to know him for. It was made to be "the real Lasers". But what did we get? Lasers pt. II. No record label has influence on their artists mixtapes so how do you explain that shitty pop sound? Since you seem a bit "simple" I will explain: When he was in TOTAL control of the outcome of the tape, and he STILL made the SAME bullshit. It was HIS OWN sound - the sound that HE went for on Lasers.
You don't know shit about the Lasers thing.
Where did you get such insightful inside knowledge from? From a Lupe interview? Whoooaw what a reliable source.
It was all bullshit. Nobody forced him to do shit. They just wouldn't release his album - which happens all the time with hiphop artists on major labels. Interscope is notorious for letting their artists down.
cuz aint got no label problems right now. how do you explain this turd of shit that Dx posted?
wrong, wrong and wrong. he blamed Lasers on the label? you do know the label wouldn't let him drop Lasers AT ALL until he changed his sound right? read up on your fuckin history.
"if he didn't care he wouldn't have named it after Holy Grail/Yeezus" it's just a fuckin play-on words, dude. it doesn't mean he cares. plenty of underground rappers name their mixtapes as a pun to mainstream rappers' albums or works, that don't mean they all care about that shit
and if anything he went dwight-howard bitchy around the time of F&L2, not Lasers. and how could you blame him when the label was holding him at gunpoint... but of course you didn't read up on that so you're just saying whatever's on your mind
little tip, don't go full retard too
regardless of anything you just said lupe is a much better artist than kendrick and kanyes much better than both of them
Exactly! Woops. meant "named this song after [...]"
I agree 100%. I listened to Food and Liquor 1 the other day and wondered what the fuck happened to this dude? His beats and lyrics were flawless. That album should have been a 5 mic.
Wasalu , I salute
Free flow thought lyrics. Dig...beats below averagely put together...but the lyrics though.
Lupe one of the best right now. I don't know who out now that can fucks with them bars.
Dope, 5 stars
How many flows does Lupe have seriously? Listen to his whole catalog of work.. This man is incredible!
lupe is so irrelevent and desperate for attention. He tries so hard on twitter and cries after chief called him out for the bitch he is. Now he wants to ride kendricks cocktail to stay relevent when he knows kendrick is better and more sucessfull than lupe will ever be, Crybaby fake ass phony bitch nigga needs to get ended by chief keef,
Lupe paved the way for people like Kendrick you testicle tickler
Damn cant lie Lupe did name drop on some Game level type of ish
Did a 3 year old play and mix this beat?
a little long but dope. lupe needs to just shut up and rap, nobody trying to hear his mess outside of the music
It's Lupe Fiasco what do you expect? C'mon now.
niggas always find something to bitch about.. not only do most rappers ramble all the time, but you're talkin to Lupe like he a circus clown meant to entertain you... mothafucka he'll talk and ramble if he want to. 2 Chainz' music is what you call a mess. Lupe's music is lyricism personified
The lyricism on this track is too dope but I wish this had a harder beat or at least a switch up halfway through. Other than that Lupe killed this shit. 1st&15th is on a comeback
lupe is the man
Oh my fuck yes
Mind blowing lyricism!!!
I just couldn't sit through the lyrical ramblings for more than half of the song, and I'm a fan of real hip hop...
clearly you don't understand his metaphors. that's okay tho
no he isnt. go read what hes saying, nothing is together. it barely makes sense over all
lol just wait for rapgenius to keep you informed then nigga
he's lyrically beastin
J U S T L I K E Y O U R M O M
DOPE FRANCIS (AMERICAN TRAP)
PEACE OF PAPER/CUP OF JAYZUS
LEAP OF FAITH
AMERICAN TERRORIST 2
AMERICAN TERRORIST 3
wow just heard making papers.. DAMN
thanks for the list. hes an over rated rapper and I could give a shit.
damn that IS a great list. haven't even realized how much new music he put out recently lol jonylah forever was hella dope...this would've been a pretty decent tracklist he he made this a free album or mixtape lol cant wait to see what happens with the "Tetsuo & Youth" album
thanks for this list. i don't have most of them and i'm a big lupe fan.
THIS DUDE DESTROYS THE GAME YET AGAIN.....SLRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR GAME OVERRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR
Agreed with the GOAT comment.
