Lupe's Favorites: Lupin the Third

-Lupe Fiasco, Touch the Sky

Lupin the Third is a Japanese manga series first written and illustrated in 1967 by Kazuhiko Kato (aka "Monkey Punch"). Arsene Lupin III is the world's greatest thief, who travels the globe with his closest allies, stealing treasures and avoiding the law. In 1971, the first Lupin television series began, adding to what would only become a Lupin franchise. Enjoy this episode.

Wow - They Are Comparing Lupe With Biggie Now


Quite a discussion about which rapper has the better verses has started in the comments section of one of the entries on nahright.com


I won't put the whole Biggie - Lupe thing on here...

I just read one thing that really stood out to me and I totally agree with everything that Latarian Milton posted:

the best advice i can give anyone is that if you have any doubts as to lupe’s lyrical supremacy in the game, go back and listen to food and liquor

that album is like a space capsule from 2015

somebody should actually do that. buy 1,000 copies of that album bury them in a capsule and then unearth the capsule in 2015 and then hold it up against whatever dance rappers are doing or even whatever so-called lyricists are out and then see if that album doesn’t hold its own and sound like it came from that era. on a straight lyrical basis it’s very hard to make an argument that somebody takes command of beats better than wasalu, he really pwns them shits

Lupe Fiasco Talks About Nas On OK Player


"Why Nas Is My Favorite Rapper...(If You Even Care)"
Wed Jul-23-08 10:15 PM by FNF UP UP AND AWAY


While in the midst of listening to "It Was Written" as a teen I was completely unaware of the existence of "Illmatic"...I remember some dudes beating a song in a car that sounded like a Nas song and I asked my homey what was that and he was like "Its from Nas 1st album"...then on a trip to my sisters college I was in her boyfriends dorm room and he had a poster of the "Illmatic" cover and I was like what is that and he was like "that's Nas 1st album" and just so happened he had a copy (he also had a copy of "The Infamous" which is another story altogether...Yeah Prodigy...Mobb Deep played a big part in the evolution of Lupe)...So I puts "Illmatic" inside the CD Walkman, strap on the headphones and proceeded to have my life changed forever...

It became my soundtrack for a time...all day everyday, everywhere...along with "IWW"...time passes..."The Firm" drops, memorized the damn thing and then named myself from it...time passes...one faithful day I was at my sisters house and was watching BET don't remember the exact show but probably Rap City...and who do I see sitting on the project steps in the pea-soup green flight suit (I HAD THE JACKET!!!) with the big ass QB chain then cuts to the bathroom with him rapping to himself in the mirror with Premo in the living room on the wheels of steel???...

NEW NAS???...WTF???...yup "Nas Is Like"...consider that memorized, consider that instrumental copped and rocked to at the High School Talent Show..."I Am" drops...heard "Hate Me Now" on WGCI that same night asked Pops (R.I.P.) to take me to Circuit City where I copped the King Tut covered imperfect masterpiece and first heard the odd line that still sticks with me to this day... "Heard Her Body Guard Took Snook To God" - "Small World"...go figure...I love that line...live with it....memorize it...life soundtrack status...but there were songs that just seemed like filler...hmmm...in the booklet there is a picture of the next album..."Nastradamus"...and I patiently begin to wait...time passes...some how, some way a copy of the bootleg of "Nastradamus" gets into my possession and it is a classic..."Belly Button Window" "Poppa Was A Playa" the original "Project Windows" yup...yet another life soundtrack...(I kept it for a long time and eventually gave it to Stacks Bundles (R.I.P.) and he took it back to NY with him and I never saw it again...I was heartbroken)...

when the official version of "Nastradamus" dropped I was super excited when the lead off joint "Life We Chose" blazed though the speakers of my little stereo..."Come Get Me" was ridiculous and a few others but it wasn't sticking like the other albums and some of the heatrocks that were on the bootleg weren't on the official version...it didn't have the life soundtrack effect like the other albums...its wasn't great...I didn't feel it as much..Damn!!! OH NO!!! Was Nas Falling Off?!???!!!???...Damn....I started to question...then something magical happened...The Beef With The BIg Homey!!!!...OHHHH SHHHIIIITTT...I was front row...Jay had just finished "Takeover" and we were some of the first to hear it at Bassline and it was murderous...I was like its over...Nas is finished...Yeah I counted him out...I was like he cant come back from that...I remember the only person in my circle that had faith in Nas was Stacks' Uncle...and he was like watch...just watch...

and sho nuff...a little while later back in Chicago...one night our cell phones exploded with 212, 718, 347 & 646 area codes...New York was on fire!!!...The "Ether" dropped...and Jesus was it a comeback!!!...then one word reigned supreme "STILLMATIC"...with the strings crying and the words "Blood Of A Slave, Heart Of A King" resonating in the X5...YUP!!!...Nas was back!!!...I swayed from the flock but now I was back with a vengeance..."Rewind" "2nd Childhood" "Rule" and the crown jewel "What Goes Around"...soundtrack to my life stuff...then another chink in the armor..."God's Son"...I honestly didn't like it...coming after "Stillmatic" I was like damn...what happened?...(R.I.P. Mrs. Jones...thanx for giving us a light in the darkness via your son)...

I take it on the chin with the knowledge now to never count out Mr. Jones...and he does not let down...he roars back with the double whammy "Street's Disciple"..."U.B.R. The Unauthorized Biography Of Rakim" is all that I needed to be more than impressed...FUCK!!!...excuse my french...then comes the statement that pissed off hip-hop and sent niggaz back to the stu to prove him wrong "Hip-Hop Is Dead"...it had a few...wasn't glorious...wasn't really moving...but good...damn Nas...I started to question again...I started to doubt..."NIGGER" (yeah I still call it Nigger...Fuck the press!!!)...really???...this nigga is naming his new shit "Nigger"???...hmmm...interesting...publicity stunt?...of course it is...did it work?...hell yeah!...people were pissed...it was great publicity wise...but the music, the message...would it be that "soundtrack to life", thought provoking, undeniably revolutionary, conceptually impeccable, stunning, invigorating, inspiring, down right send-you-back-to-the-drawing-board quality PIFF!!! that N-A-S is capable of ????????????..................

I avoided buying it...I avoided watching the videos online....I avoided downloading any of the leaked music...I was scared...I put it out of my mind...I refused to participate.......I was afraid it wouldn't be............until today...............and the answer to the longwinded question is......


Yeah Nigguh!!!!


DAMMMMMMMMNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN!!!!!!

"NIGGER" (Yeah I'm Still Calling It NIGGER) is a masterpiece!!!!....

NAS is spitting like a demon....first time I experienced multiple "wheel-it-backs" a mere 20 seconds into a song in a longtime....

through the up's and the down's N-A-S still holds the crown...well to me anyway...

Really Nice Fan Art



from: L-E-M-O

Artist Spotlight - Karina Pasian





She's currently on the Refresh Your Flow Tour with Lupe.
Find out a bit more about her.


Even before 17-year-old Karina Pasian signed to Def Jam records, the stellar singer was already making a name for herself. From her winning performance on Star Search in 2003 to singing at the White House last June during Black Music Month, this New York City chanteuse has been paying her professional dues since she was a toddler.


In the studio with Ne-Yo


Now she's working with an array of songwriters, producers and artists that include The Dream, Tricky Stewart, Gordon Chambers, Chris Brown, Carlos McKinnney, Lil Mama and others, Karina proves to be a breath of fresh soul. “I’ve recorded over 70 songs in the last two years,” Karina says. “It was a period of real growth for me as I learned to focus and stay consistent.” Karina Pasian’s godfather, famed producer and businessman Quincy Jones, has also been a guardian angel for the young singer. In addition to giving her advice, the maestro included her in the “We Are the Future” charity concert in 2006. Considering the talents Jones has worked with, from Frank Sinatra and Sarah Vaughan to Michael Jackson and Tamia, she is in good company. “I know I’m blessed to have someone like Quincy in my corner,” she says.

Her debut album First Love will be in stores on August 19th.

Lupe Fiasco Talks to BET about the lupEND Album





Here's a little something from BET.com

Aside from hitting the road with Coca Cola, Lupe is in the early stages of his third LP, lupEND. “We’re building you know what I’m saying? It’s early, early, early in the planning stages of how we’re going to do it and everything. Trust me; it’s not what people think it is. It’s really going to blow past people’s expectations” Lupe said excitedly. And judging by his vernacular, Lupe is ready to step outside the box for his final go round, “When people actually get it, they’ll be like ‘Oh snap, he really can step away from the norm’. It’s not going to leave anyone hanging”. Of course, with rumors swirling of Lupe bowing out after the third effort, the question had to be posed, is this the final project? “Yep” said Lupe in a swift response. Logistics for lupEND have yet to be revealed.

Sneaker Freak Short Film




Amir George, 21 Chicago born film and video maker: I've shot several music videos and short films. I had to create the film Sneaker Freak as a school project, the idea came from an assignment I did for Rolling Out Magazine on the sneaker culture. I wanted to mock the whole idea of a sneaker phenomenon, I remember one of my friends playing this song by the Cool Kids, a year ago. I heard it, and put my idea of the sneaker culture along with the objectivity of the song. I thought about growing up and how I would hear stories of people being killed over shoes. Its something so simple that you wouldn't expect to happen, but actually does. I chose to use voice overs cause I had to use sound, and I wanted to give the shoes character. I wanted to show the shoes as individuals to create diversity amongst a culture.

The Amajanese Mixtape - Update


2 months ago I contacted a couple of artists
to record tracks for a mixtape exclusively for this blog.

Almost all of them have been interested to be a part of it.

Now we are at a stage of the project
where we can seriously think about a release date.

There are still some spots available, just in case
anyone still want's to be a part of it.

I'm also still waiting for 3 artists to submit their tracks.

The 1 main thing I asked everyone to do was
to include the word "Amajanese" in their songs.

So if you are an artist who would like to be a part of this mixtape....
send a mail to:

jeezy44@gmail.com

You have 3 weeks left to submit your track

Lupe Fiasco - Mile High Music Festival Review





After I left Spoon and plopped down in the middle of the Lupe crowd, I began to wonder what I was in for with Lupe. I loved the Cool (what hip-kid didn't?), but I'd never actually seen a major, popular, mainstream Hip-Hop artist (as cool and different as Lupe is, you cannot deny the fact that he is mainstream).



10 minutes before the set was supposed to start, members of his crew began wandering on stage, setting up their various things and generally being more cool than everyone else (not saying they were conceited, I'm just saying that these guys are cool, and they know it). 10 minutes after the set was supposed to start, people were beginning to get a little angsty, a few more stoned characters in front of me were actually beginning to start fights with one another (definitely the first time I've ever seen someone as stoned as this fellow was try to fight. Usually pothead are super chill...) Lupe exploded onto the stage, and there was no question in my mind as to why people see mainstream rappers ... these guys have more energy than just about any rock star I've ever seen. At one point Lupe and the other MC (who's name I didn't catch) were running ... no ... sprinting from one side of the stage to the other, jumping as they passed each other.



The songs were full of sex and awesomeness and ... well I'd see Lupe a hundred more times ... and that's more than I can say about any of the other artists I saw at the Mile High Music Festival. The only disappointing moment about the set was when they did "Dumb it Down." They cut it down by one verse and used the first chorus twice. I love that song. Oh well, the show was phenomenal.

Why Is Everyone Making Such A Big Secret Out Of CRS ?


Pharrell was asked about CRS while talking to allhiphop.com
Here's how it turned out

AllHipHop.com: Now I know Lupe was on stage talking about filming the Child Rebel Soldier video and there's a video about the video that’s leaked. This project was really kept under wraps and now the secret's out, but why was it kept such a secret for so long?

Pharrell: Well I don't know what you're talking about. [laughs]

AllHipHop.com: Not fair, even Lupe said it.

Pharrell: What did he say?

AllHipHop.com: He said we're filming the Child Rebel Soldier video.

Pharrell: Ohh you mean CRS. Ohhh CRS – ohh Ciara, Rihanna and Shakira.

AllHipHop.com: Yeah, [laughs] that's the project I was talking about.

Pharrell: That's gonna be cool. CRS stands for “can't really sing.”
That was corny but it worked.


That's all just marketing...
not really talking about it and not giving any details.

I'm pretty sure something will come out sooner or later.
