What a Fiasco...
At first I thought I was the only one who hadn't jumped on Lupe Fiasco bandwagon until the homie Magic agreed with me when I was like "I just can't see myself drivin down the street bumpin Dumb it Down." The homies Zeke, C-San and other fans try to explain to me that Lupe is really that nigga when it comes to this lyrical stuff. I always knew the dude can spit but I just haven't even came close 2 purchasing either one of his CD's, not even a couple keystrokes 2 download them. Although I do respect what he does, I just never cared for the dude.
I think its because he's weird. Nah ...
I think it was because a year or two ago when me and few friends of mine seen him @ Jerry's Deli one night and I seen how LF reacted towards a fan who complimented him on his music. He basically dusted her off and kept it pushin.
Or maybe when I went 2 UC Riverside's homecoming a couple years ago where he was headlining and he arrived five hours later than scheduled. It was outside and I was like freezing. No apologies, just a birthday song led by him 2 a female fan where afterwards he told her, "Now get the fuck off my stage."
Or maybe its just cause he comments on sensitive issues like racism like this:
"Racism built this country," Lupe said. "Racism built the world. Racism is the basis of all societies. It's a necessary evil sometimes. Especially to keep democracy, keep us all comfortable."
Wait, wait. There's more:
"I find comfort living outside the matrix, with all the evil robots and living underground eating oatmeal, that's where I want to be because that's true."
Oatmeal and evil robots. Sounds like a potential Lupe album title.
