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

4 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!
