Lupe Fiasco - Twitter Freestyle


After his freestyle, in which he said that he's the best at a concert in Chicago, went viral yesterday Lupe went in on a Twitter Rant/Freestyle (however you want to call it)

Read below:

Aight y'all I take back lets just say "We The Best!"....meaning me, me, me, I, me, me AND me the best!

My ego on zero/its just that my re-al's on hero/my confidence on Michael but my pride is on Tito. I aint paid dues? What is this receipt 4??

Boy said "with Lasers you kinda stumbled some and you're only as good as your last record", I said so I guess I'm only as good as being number 1! I asked him "What's your success measurer? The message or the register?" in the end you got a win-win, only thing I lost is my competitors.

He said "Yeah but Lasers was your worst and nothing like ya first"/ I said "well that's me vs. me and your growth is nothing like your birth. He said "You're a lame dumbed down sellout only known for talking out your ass"/ I humbly nodded in agreement and asked 4 more ketchup in my bag. I left thinking how I used to be in his shoes/ writing verses flipping burgers, now I serve the world pearls from socio-political menus.

And how I could never back...only because I never left, so if you find a few diamonds in your sandwich then you know who was the chef. A Rolex in your fries, a chain in your salad/ a range rover in your soup and a extra slice palace...People, Friend Of/L-U-P End Cuz!!...Gnight

  2. I hope this really goes viral and gets discussion started about who really is best. What does it mean to be the best rapper? What is the criteria?

  3. Also, this was posted on World Star Hip Hop about Lupe alluding to Jay, Kanye and Wayne.

    "Lupe is a smart dude. He probally joking around. Kanye, Jay, and Wayne are far below Lupe's skill level. Him picking on them would be like a 20 year old with muscles fistfighting a child with cerebral palsy and brain damage. It would be on some bully s***.

  8. Jist you crazy dog, as nice is The Cool is its not close to Illmatic. You're talking about one of the greatest albums of all-time, while you can question if The Cool is even better than F&L....

    ReplyDelete
  9. @ The Jist...

    okay lets not get carried away son The Cool is a classic album, but lets be honest but it cant touch ILLMATIC..not even any rap albums from 94 till now thats some 17 yrs. Even Nasty Nas cant touch Illmatic as far as im concern.

    ReplyDelete
  10. The cool is better than illmatic... The cool is a concept, it's a whole story, and some songs are sequels. It's genius. Lyrically it's on par with it as well. I don't know why people are so afraid to give his dues. F&L and The Cool are probably some of the best hip hop albums released. Along with illmatic, speakerboxxx/love below/reasonable doubt/late registration/Be...

  11. this nigga real or trolling when he said late ragistration one of the best albums? facepalm nigga and the Cool the dopest concept album period but does not mean its better than Illmatic, Illmatic all 9 songs were classic and lyrically was just better period..nuff said and as for the cool i can make the case that Food & Liquor is better than the cool, thats how good lupe is, but come'on son who we kidding here Illmatic was and still is the measuring stick for rap albums and the blueprint for rap albums period.

  12. and btw It Was Written > The Cool and barely > Food & Liquor..see the songs I GAVE YOU Power, Nas the one who started that kind of rap

  13. Doubters where ya at?

    It doesn't matter what Lu does; Off da top, pre-written, over twitter, featured on other niggas tracks, even in his fucking sleep Lu always murders when he spits.

    Lupe Fiasco = Best Of All Time.

    Lupe > Nas
    Lupe > Jay-Z
    Lupe > Pac
    Lupe > Biggie
    Lupe > Big L
    Lupe > Em
    Lupe > Wayne
    Lupe > J.Cole
    Lupe > Rakim
    Lupe > Your Favorite Rapper

    Lupe Fiasco's Food and Liquor 2: The Great American Rap is going to and will be a problem when it drops. It will be an insta-classic. It will be the best Hip-Hop album of all time. It's time let go of the past as it has been surpassed by Lu.

  14. http://www.mtv.com/videos/news/83899/its-all-about-the-legacy.jhtml#name=news&id=1529705 just see this clip of history and you calm your ass down..

    @anon i think even Lupe would shy away from saying he is better than Nas..

    ReplyDelete
  15. Lupe Fiasco's The Cool is the most lyrical album to ever be released PERIOD.

    No one can touch:

    Dumb it Down
    Hip-Hop Saved My Life
    Superstar
    Streets on Fire
    Put You on Game
    Little Weapon
    The Coolest

    These tracks are unrivaled.

    With that said, Illmatic is good too. Arguing which one is better will get you no where. It's best just to acknowledge both as great albums that have been released.

  16. "and btw It Was Written > The Cool and barely > Food & Liquor..see the songs I GAVE YOU Power, Nas the one who started that kind of rap"

    Yeah, Nas started it but that doesn't mean Lupe didn't do it better. Put You On Game is better than I Gave You Power in my opinion.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Most def. gonna have to agree w/ Sean on this one. Especially w/ F&L > The Cool.

    But just because Lu thought he wasn't once better than Nas, doesn't mean he hasn't lyrically surpassed him now. Nas is past his prime. Lu is still in his prime. Therefore, right now, Lu > Nas... arguably of course.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Illmatic > It Was Written

    The Cool > F&L

    The is how it is. Nas was never able to surpass his first album while Lupe was able to.

    ReplyDelete
  19. I dont think you can say The cool is better than f&l.... they are two very different albums. However.. hungry Lu is my favorite of all time. I dont think yall realize how good f&l 2 is going to be...

    ReplyDelete
  20. I'd say Illmatic was more complex when it came to lyrics. However, on It Was Written that the whole world got introduce to Nasty Nas (including Lupe) and that mafiasso album was the best plus Nas elevated his level of musicality and overall did some of his best lyrical performances on that. Id say "The Message" has to be Nas best song ever or 2nd to "Ny State Of Mind" Overall, I'd have to say Illmatic was better than It Was Written by a thin hair, based on the impact, lyrics, and production. IWW is a classic in itself and honestly both albums were really great.

    And honestly same goes for Lupe's albums shit is really crazy how both are just that good of an emcee..only time will tell(more like albums) when lupe has surpassed Nas. to me both are goats.

    ReplyDelete
  21. I love the power I have to start this.

    ReplyDelete
  22. and also It Was Written was the best Mafiasso Album ever created it inspired 90's Classics like, mobb deeps - the infamous...kool g. Raps - 456...foxy browns - ill na na, & The Firm..both are all time great

  23. Twilight Zone- Lupe rapping from a perspective of everything that joint is bananas..

    Rewind- Nas rapping backwards describing the muder scene- OMG shit is also bananas..

    Gotta Eat- Lupe rapping about- please listen! no spoiler. all those food metaphors- genius.

    I Gave You Power- Nas rapping from a perspective of Gun- wow this joint the most creative shit never gets old.

    both on the same joint= BOMB!!

  24. People are too afraid to give Lu his props, which i guess i can understand. When u come to your opinion of whos the greatest (e.g em, nas) you don't wanna have to rearrange your opinions.
    But honestly Lupe Fiasco, the things I've heard from this guy.. i gots to put him at the peak of the summit

    ReplyDelete
  25. You all have different opinions, Nothing is better than anything. It's all based on critique and opinions, some might like Jay z and some might like kanye, it's just having taste in music, some might like rock (screaming people in your ears) and some might like jazz or classical music (soft smooth in your ears) It's all opinions and everything in the music industry is based on opinions and critique. Y'all are fighting and discussing for nothing, no one is going to change his/her opinion about who is the best, so stop whining. Who is better than who are just opinions and not facts. So Lupe being the best rapper, is just an opinion by his fans.

    ReplyDelete
  26. please dont bring up EM his no way near Nas or Lupe for that matter, I can name host of emcees who are better than his wack ass..and get back at when EM finally drops a classic album at this point = O none. While Lupe and Nas has classics under they belt..please dont tell me marshal matters or eminem show was a classic lol. dude is ill with freestyling and battles and thats where it stops niggas.

    You're only as good as your last album. Lupe has to prove it. We all know he's capable now he has to come with that fire. He needs to get back in his lane, and he'll be the goat when it's all said and done, and it shouldn't even be argued.

  30. I still remember how people were hating on the Cool when it first came out. Saying Lupe had changed and it was wacker than F&L. Now it seems an even split between people who think it's better than F&L and those who think it's not. Funny how things change lol. Wonder what will happen with Lasers

    ReplyDelete
  31. ^ LOL it already happend nigga, you living under a rock or what? lasers is hated on and thats why he promised to never go back to that lane ever again. and hence the name---> Lupe Fiasco's Food & Liquor 2

  32. ""Boy said "with Lasers you kinda stumbled some and you're only as good as your last record""

    ""I asked him "What's your success measurer? The message or the register?" in the end you got a win-win, only thing I lost is my competitors.""

    Dope!

    But nice try Lupe. My "success measurer" is lyrical depth (i.e double, triple, and quadruple entandres, deep extended meatphors, alliterations, wordplay, multi-syllable ryhmes, etc.)

  33. I was going NUTS as he kept tweeting these last night!!!! "You're a lame dumbed down sellout only known for talking out your ass"/ I humbly nodded in agreement and asked 4 more ketchup in my bag. I left thinking how I used to be in his shoes/ writing verses flipping burgers, now i serve the world pearls from socio-political menus." IDK what to say about that........... This entire thing just makes me reeeeeaaaaallly happy.

  34. "He said "Yeah Lasers was your worst and nothing like ya first"/ I said "well that's me vs.me and your growth is nothing like your birth" DOPE!

  36. F&L=The Cool.

    You can't put one above the other (atleast I can't)

    ReplyDelete
  37. Glad to know Lupe still has that fire in him, I have a feeling some nasty shit is coming.

    ReplyDelete
  38. "Lasers was your worst and nothin like your first" / I said, "well that's me vs. me and your growth is nothing like your birth."

    What does he mean with this part??

    ReplyDelete
  39. LOL!! My nigga went in. Freaking Love this dude. L.A.S.E.R.S.

    ReplyDelete
  40. he sounds like an asshole tbh with it
    basically defending selling out the same way every other rapper does
    "no, its ok because I have more money now"

    ReplyDelete
  41. so what is people beef with lasers? is it really just about beats? i thought the content was good. he touched on a lot of topics that other rappers dont ever address. it was still lyrical just not "super lupe lyrical" but still more lyrical than most mainstream rappers.

    ReplyDelete
  42. After itwas written nas made crap . hopefully lupe delivers with f&l2.

    Nas > lupe > everyone else
