Throwback Thursday: Lupe Fiasco (ft. Sarah Green) - Intruder Alert

2 Comments


This week's throwback is just 1 of the masterpieces from Lupes' sophmore album, The Cool. Even though each verse is only 8 bars long, Lupe manages to tell 3 different stories in vivid detail that puts you in the shoes of a rape victim, a drug addict and an immigrant. Sarah Green caps it off with an incredible bridge that ties the intruder concept together.

Side Note: Ever noticed that the melody line on this track is the same as the one on Hip Hop Saved My Life in a different key/octave/tempo?

Shout out to @FuckYouFearMe for picking this week's throwback. If you'd like to be responsible for next week's #ThrowbackThursday, tweet us a suggestion with the hashtag!

Throwback Thursday: Lupe Fiasco - Game Time

7 Comments


Lupe's lyrical prowess is often held in high regard with common examples of such being Failure, Mean & Vicious, Lupe The Killer, etc. One of the songs that is criminally overlooked in terms of being a pure masterful display of lyricism is this track off the leaked version of Food & Liquor. Not only does Lupe drop a triple entendre...
They hope I Domino and free up my delivery, and at the same time mock my (magnificence/magnet for cents/magna for sense)

...but he immediately follows that up by rhyming words that he DOESN'T EVEN ACTUALLY SAY!!!...
I'm just tryna do the opposite of left (right) as long as there's the opposite of death (life), YES! You test and I just might bring the opposite of life (death) til there's no one the opposite of right (left)

...and that's only the third verse! Shout out to @CheckMyEsque for picking this week's throwback!
