My Great God.
Hand down greatest rapper alive. Lyrics and beat are on point for this song.
I have a feeling I'm gonna enjoy listening to this track for the next... say year or 2 in order to understand all of it.
I'm one of those who didn't like Lasers, but I have loved all three of these singles. Pure fire.

last verse is a sad reality, deepest substance so far out of the 3 tracks
omg ii luv dis!!!reminds me of Enemy of the state, lyk iff u crii evrytim(/end sarcasm)
Lyrics are amazing.... Some serious stuff out there.. But didn't feel that beat. Anyway, 5/5 song.
Oh myyyyyy that was fire, this is raps messiah, take notice. Excellent job lupe, I fucking love you. Best Artist out there right now along with Nas keep it up Wasalu. This is your year brother.
LUPE DA GAWD!!!!!!!!
This made my mind explode. I'm actually inlove with this and I've only heard it like 10 minutes ago!
LUPE!!!You've done it again sir. Can't wait to buy this tonight!
lupe basin the third verse about jerry sandusky is gonna blow some heads!!
This is amazing! =)
*claps* Well Done Mr. Fiasco
1st verse: jim crow laws2nd : womens rights about attending school3rd: preachers molesting little boyd
Trea Da Truth Incredible sample in the beginning.
My God. perfection.
Wow i didnt know that was Trae da truth in the beginning....Cant wait to hear this at the UMASS CONCERT!! check out my car..http://www.cardomain.com/ride/3997956
I'm so sick of this political shit
1st verse is not jim crow laws lol...
Masha'Allah!After all these years, I've learned more from lupes lyrics than in school or university...thank you lu.
Lupe is the best Rapper of All Time, Enough said
I am very grateful to have this opportunity and witness Lupes masterpieces in present time. THE greatest!
That's a deep song. This is real stuff. What are all these revered rappers rapping about? This is how you the game can be changed. Rap about real stuff, that affect peoples lives. Damn. Lupe is the man. Keeps it real all the time.
I agree with what anonymous said about learning more in a Lupe song than in a classroom. Each song of his is like school is in session on reality and what matters in the world. I get the feeling FNL2 is going to be the masters program. Can't wait!
Damn this song is raw! I wonder if this will get any radio play? Part one messages will be sick but I hope the world is still here for the rapping of part 2!
Side note: Does the beat sound like the underwater submarine beat from Final Fantasy 7 to anyone else?
YESSSSSS!!!! I thought I was the only one!!!
It's the same type of profession but it's not exactly the same lol
Lu, you just cracked the code!!! Haha!

1st verse is about the "Diamond Flooded Demons". The first 8 bars are about excersising those demons n the last 8 are about how materialism corrupts people.2nd verse is about a woman thought as "insane" but gets "cured" by science n now cant think on her own will. Its about the media and how it dumbs down/brain washes people. The 3rd verse is about catholic priests molesting boys
my bad its only 12 bars first verse.the first half is excersisng the demons.the second is about corruption by materialism
'But we must still pray that his colour will be cured'This line, in the context of the verse, seems to be a reference to Christian missionaries that demonized people of darker skin tones and their cultures because they did not understand them. Lupe steps into the Eurocentric perspective that those missionaries carried, with this line
The second verse is about how women in the 18th century who wanted an education were thought of as insane so they made them get lobotomys thinking it would cure said insanity. It really did more damage than good. And who ever said their sick of the political shit. Imagine how people who would prefer to listen to substance feel about the majority of mainstream music. You don't like it don't listen, stay in your lane. To each his own.Lupe is a legend in the making

Lol where is my underwater materia!
If Lupe makes a remix to this song, I'd love to see Jay Electronica jump on that track. This song is crazy!
***"Does the beat sound like the underwater submarine beat from Final Fantasy 7 to anyone else?"***No it doesn't. If you think it does then you are deaf.Here's the FF7 beat:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JYFcnegwA2ASounds nothing like lambo angles beat.
he did use the chun-li song for Army girl. and the ace attorney song for Coming up. so don't count Lupe's geekness out completely
Loooove the song.3rd verse too explicit for my liking though
omg that ace attorney them is dirty!!! but i dont hear coming up in it. same with the chun li theme
GLAD I CAN WITNESS A LIVING LEGEND!!!!!ALSO WITNESS ANOTHER CLASSIC ALBUMTHANK YOU GOD FOR LUPELUPE IS THE G.O.A.T
Thanks for the comment - have a nice day !
