I'm sure you all out there admire lupe for many different reasons but I'm sure one of them is for his lyrical talent, his approach, sound and how he differentiates himself from other Emcees.

The guys over at illVibes sent me an interesting article on their theme-based-catergory,
'Lupe Fiasco Vs. Others'

In the article, the writers compare the lyrics of Lu to that of others in the mainstream hip hop game on a particular topic. The topic of the first installment is "lyrical ability and, more so, the ability to brag about yourself or your lyrical skills." You should definitely leave comments here or there and let them know what you think of the piece. 

Also it would be interesting to here what your favorite Lupe Bars are.
One of mine has to be from one his mixtape, 'Fahrenheit 1/15 Part I: The Truth Is Among Us'
on the 'Rock The Mic' freestyle


''Don't Intervine Chumps/ Your far from the hood/ Like Limousine Trunks''

My favorite verses are from Hurt Me Soul,Sunshine,The Pills American Terrorist,The cool and Gold Watch. There is so much depth in even Lupe's most simplistic songs.
