So we all just gonna ignore the fact that Lupe might be off the deep end? I am a firm believer in taking a stand for a cause, but has his terrorist rants started to discredit his artistry? Am I the only one who thinks Lupe may have went wayward in his attempt to educate the people on what he thinks is really going on in America? We all have opinions and I respect his but are we really gonna let him keep coming across as a crazy ass, anti-American negro? Lupe is acting like he been thinking about just saying fuck it and blowing some shit up. LOL.
But all jokes aside, I'm really concerned. Where is Bishop? Where is somebody? Is anybody telling him that he is committing career suicide. I'm sure he still has fans rocking with him and what he has to say but the stunts he pulls sometimes make you not want to be associated. I feel like I have to hide the fact that I'm a Lupe fan now cause I don't want people thinking I'm a terrorist and end up on a federal watch list or some shit lol. Okay imma stop joking about this serious situation.
But seriously, can we all just let Lupe know that we love him and we are listening and he doesn't need to go crazy tryna spread messages through the world. Those who care will get it, and join the fight. Thats where his energy needs to go. Focus on the people who want to support and stop making people rethink being a fan. Lupe is an excellent performer and it upsets me to hear that he was booted from an inaugural concert because he wasn't performing.
Back when I frequented Lupe concerts on a regular basis, we always got the message he was trying to give the people. Songs like American Terrorist and the shit talking was enough to make us feel what you were feeling. The ranting and raving is getting to be a bit much. People don't like to be forced to believe something. The truth always reveals itself in due time. Focus on the music. PLEASE! I miss the old Lupe Fiasco. The one I fell in love with. The one I could relate to. The nigga that was spitting some real shit. And not to discredit the knowledge he tryna kick now, but we know shit is fucked up, make us feel better about it. Make us want to start making changes instead of wanting to start a riot. People just label you as crazy when you try to fight against something that the majority believes. What happened to moving in silence? What happened to Ninja Lupe? You can get a lot more done that way. Show people there is a method to your madness because right now, you just look crazyasfuck. no spaces. (big bang theory is my favorite!)
A Concerned On the fence Fan,
Always Love Though.
