Lupe Fiasco w/ Angie on Hot97

Lupe discusses the hoopla after the Hip Hop Honors incident and whether he and A Tribe Called Quest specifically Q Tip have any beef and other random stuff.

As articulate and good of an artist as Lupe is, he continues to turn we fans off with his unwarranted arrogance. With no classic album and no memorable verse’s under his belt he should fall back on being considered right all the time let his music speak for itself.

    Listen to this young hip hop diaper boy try to back track his way outta the fact that he didnt know Tribes lyrics…heres a newsflash…..YOU’RE A RAPPER! Rappin is yo job negro! Why show up to even do the show if you aint confident enough in yo skillz to reproduce the lyrics from memory? Yeah Lupe is soundin all articulate and blah and blah blah blah but he still just ends up soundin like a dummy.

    This dude represents, pretty much everything & EVERYONE here at PMD, 42euce & REAL fans of hip-hop, exactly what we are & what we are accustomed to. To say he talks his way out of the situation is nonsense because he uses his actual intelligence to get things straight. When you read books & self-educate yourself then maybe you would understand this 2. Hating just to hate puts you in a realm all by yourself. Next time you choose to hate, without having some sort of facts to have it based on, just find the nearest homeless person & let em spit in your face. That is all.

    MAAAAAN, FUcK LUPE!

    NAW, JUST FUcKIN WITH YOU. BUT FOR REAL THO, DUDE WAS STRAIGHT. HE WAS RIGHT ABOUT REGIONAL MUSIK, HE WAS RIGHT ABOUT NY ELITIST HIPHOP FANS/BAcK PAcKERRS AND HOMIE WAS STRAIGHT ON HIS DEFENSE OF NOT KNOWING A HIPHOP KLASSIK. MY ONLY PROBLEM IS, WHY DIDN’T HOMIE TURN OUT TO B A GANGSTA-RAPPER, IF THAT’S ALL HE WAS EXPOSED TO, WHEN HE WAS KOMING UP; AND KONSIDERING HIS WHOLE STYLE IS QUEST-BASED? A LIL’ SUSPEKT, I’D SAY. BUT WHUTEVERR…

    I DO HAVE TO OUTRIGHT KOMMIT A HATE KRIME ON HIS SKATEBOARDING ABILITIES THO. FLAT OUT TERRIBLE! HIM AND PHARELL’S POSER ASS!

    Normally I would be offended that Lupe doesnt show respect to a great group like TRIBE. Nonetheless, I find it a tad refreshing that he doesnt feel the need to bow down to the past. I hope his next album blows. CORRECTION to PMD: LUPE doesn’t have any well-known verses, but he has quite a few hip hop quotables. He is easily TOP TEN LYRICALLY in the rap game right now.

    In your opinion but neither the masses nor the Hip Hop Intelligentsia purchased his album. And unlike how we all could off the head spit a Biggie, Jay Z, Nas, Wu Tang member, Snoop or Dr. Dre verse, no one here could off the head spit a Lupe verse. He is by no means a wack MC, he just hasn’t gotten to that level of importance in any one’s book. Especially not my own.

    ‘ILLMATIC’ is considered one of the greatest rap albums of all time. It took 6-9 months to go GOLD despite a huge marketing campaign. Once again the masses running to go get the album don’t indict or legitimize the art. ‘KINGDOM COME’ sold 2.5 million, yet ‘HIP HOP IS DEAD’ barely went past gold. Its been proven that most rap consumers are one of two things: fickle and/or attracted to ignorance put to a hot beat.———————–
    “…the dumb simply follow to the beat…” – RZA (back in the day explaining the importance of the 808 drum, to get most people to listen, no matter how repetitive an overused it is or how lyrical the rhyme is).
