WTF?! - They Put T.I.'s Head on Lupe's Body



Mehdi just showed this to me...the pic on the left is the cover for MLK & T.I.'s
A Year And A Day
Mixtape and you can clearly see that they just took Lupe's body and put T.I.'s head on it.

Whoever did this cover needs to step his/her game up...there are enough pics of T.I. around...no need to fake it like that...


The mixtape itself is pretty dope though. If you want it,
you can find it on NahRight

Kid Cudi talks about Lupe Fiasco



A lot of people find these ill witty ways to rap, but when you speak to them there’s ignorance and no type of common sense, just blandness. It’s important to be true to yourself on all levels; don’t talk about something you don’t know about.

When I listen to someone like Lupe Fiasco, I think, “This dude is so smart,” and when I met him I thought, “Man, this dude is so smart!” He speaks very intelligently and he’s actually intelligent in person.


Check BlackBookMag for the full interview.

Video: MTV Diary - Lupe Fiasco (Trailer)



Did this ever air? Has anyone ever seen the full episode?
Update: It actually aired on MTV Australia...

Throwback: K'naan & His Crew Listening to Lupe Fiasco

Poetry: Joe Needs FOOD & LIQUOR!?!


Joe wrote this poem...he's working on another one for "The Cool" right now...


Don't know where to start, so I come in on the "Intro"
Got the game surprised because I'm something they didn't know
I get it going without "The Instrumental"
im a double edge sword which makes this detrimental
u may say its sentimental
been spitting fire all life, see the burns in my dental
the games are Xtreme, gotta stay on my grind
"Kick, Push 2" avoid lagging behind
It "Hurt me Soul"
to see the culture lose control
Bunch of "American Terrorists" destroying the art
"I gotcha" , here to take it back to the start
Grandmaster, Run DMC, Rakim and Eric B.
Hip Hop "just might be ok" if u hand it to me
and my boy "Carrera Lu"
back to back with the flow of ninjitsu
Naruto and Rock Lee
suit the color of broccoli
Konoha Senpuu
you aint gotta ask "Wat it do"
or What it does
u feel "Tilted" but this is just a light buzz
2:20 and its finally starting to settle in
im known to compose the "Real" without the use of a pen
Hotter than water under "Pressure"
I'm the steam breezing through the Fissure
Take a wiff
watch me burn nose hairs while u sniff
Im only "The Cool" in the presence of her "Sunshine"
Ask my dood, "He say , She say" I'm on her mind
but I was "Daydreamin"
zoning out from her rays gazin
down at me sayin believe in urself
ur a giant not an elf
so with her at my back
I've composed " The Emperor's Soundtrack"
the script for the kings
So "Kick, Push" with me to where it all begins
The opposite of the "Outro" my friends...

ok...they are all in the studio together at the same time...doesn't necessarily mean that they are working on one and the same song, but that would be a dope collabo.
