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.

Sound off.

Fuck you nigga. Why you puttin my government out there. I said he got lyrical skill but I didn't say he was a good person. That nigga is a egotistical dick (much like the man that brought him on but 10x that). You forgot to mention that LP wanted to quit the rap game and become a flourist. What a jig
