"Lupe is like the coolest nerd ever... in a very good way.. let me explain before I get bashed ...who would have ever thought your favorite rapper would be wearing glasses with normal clothes & not nice ice or stuff like that ... Lupe is an un-ordinary rapper, Lu is in my top 5 rappers of all time because he just does him ... thats' what makes him Lupe Fiasco"
" was Blackbeard till i brought the Roc into ur ships "
Blackbeard was a famous English Pirate. He crashes into rocks, where as lu means he brought the "Roc" as in Jay Z. had to post this again
just found the meaning to that line on youtube ... lupe is so clever"
"The problem is.. to me, Lupe makes or breaks these tracks (usually/always it's makes)... the production just isn't special. Of course he needs beats that don't overprower his lyricism, but if he would work with the best producers in the game, the beats don't have to overpower him, just add an additional treat to his lyricism... He hasn't really ever tried to get more famous production (Ok, Kanye West & Neptunes each gave him a beat, but I think they've got more in store than just these two beats...), and I'd like him to just try it... Dr. Dre/Premier/insertotherlegendhere, why not?"
"a few lyrical songs doesn't make you one of the greatest emcees of all time, it's more than just lyrics (cuz trust me if it was I'd be in the top 10 lol). I'm not saying Lupe isn't a talented artist, but come on...top 10? You can't base it off of lyrics, cuz so many people have had lyrical songs in their careers. "
