Lecrae compares his song "Black Rose" to "Bitch Bad"

5 comments:

Assemble Mag recently intervied Lecrae and in the interview he talks about his song "Black Rose" (listen above) and compares it to Lupe's "Bitch Bad."

AM: One thing you’ve done effectively with your music is embrace themes of the confessional and the personal. Some things that are considered taboo in the church and you shed light on some of these things. A song that comes to mind is Black Rose. Who was that song for? Did You have a certain person in mind?

Lecrae: It was a community of people. A community of disenfranchised women who are frowned upon and who are not given love or care. It’s just really like taking a step back and looking at us from a different vantage point.

Like what Lupe just did with his most recent single. Look at how we see women. Look at how twisted our perception of women is and he flipped it on it’s head.

And that’s really one of the things I try to do is to try to flip a lot of these misconceptions on their head and try to look at from a different vantage point. With Black Rose it’s like look at these women that you talk about and you frown upon but no one is willing to reach out and give them a helping hand.

Lupe Fiasco raps "Only Tupac is topping me Now" on new Track

13 comments:

Lupe did a Q&A session with RollingStone in which a few more details about Food & Liquor 2 part 1 were revealed including this line from the song "Put Em Up."

Q: On "Put Em Up," there's a line where you say, "Only Tupac is topping me now." What did you mean by that?

A: I think everyone sees Tupac as an inspiration. "Tupac Back" – I didn't write that song, Rick Ross and Meek Mill wrote that song. Everybody equates themselves to who they feel is the pioneer of their thing, whether it be folk singers that look back to Bob Dylan or reggae people who look back to Bob Marley.

These head figures that had a social and cultural pitch to them – not saying they were saints in any way, but within their genre they did something that transcended their genre. Everybody reveres Tupac. Tupac Shakur is a great man, a great figure, a great person. He's Martin Luther King status. The same admiration I have for Baldwin, I have for Tupac.

4 comments:

Part 2 of Hardknock TV's interview with Lupe starts off with Nick Huff Barili asking Lupe if he has worked with any of the new generation artists like Kendrick Lamar and Blu on Food & Liquor 2.

Lupe responds that he wants to be a fan but not necessarily collaborate cause he doesn't want to taint his vision of them.

Nick continues by asking if Lupe feels he has to sneak in substance into music that plays in a commercial realm. Lupe not only answers that but also goes into misconceptions regarding his last album Lasers and says that the production on F&L 2 will be modern hip hop beats.

They also touch on the subjects of Lupe wanting to retire from the music industry and his interest in teaching, the All City Chess Club, CRS and the album he is going to put out with just Pharrell.

Lupe Fiasco encourages the boycotting of Spin Magazine!

43 comments:

Spin Magazine recently wrote an article where they gave their opinion on "Bitch Bad" . In the article, they say that the song and its video are "mansplaining...half-baked conscious hip-pop...muddled, measly-mouthed missive...reckless social commentary...poorly thought-out grab for attention" and claim that Lupe has a "moronic lyrics-over-everything attitude".

Well, Lupe came across the article and he isn't too happy about it. He took to Twitter and encouraged the boycotting of Spin Magazine, stating:
Spin Magazine really be on one...so #BitchBad is "half- baked conscious hip-hop" huh? I see why you call yourself "Spin" cuz that's all u do. To not like an artist soooo much you sure spend an awful lot of time cooking up eloquent garbage about him...stop reaching...it's sad. Sensationalism and half-truth runs the media. Practice real journalism or put fold out boy band posters in your mag and call it a day.

Yeah I think a #SpinMagazineBoycott may be in order...sick of the foolishness.So yeah now you have my undivided and unshakable attention #BoycottSpinMagazine "All that I can stands and I can't stands no more"...

It is there opinion...I agree...and my opinion is #BoycottSpinMagazine So I guess we're even...tshirts coming soon. My dignity and my respect for my art is of more value than a few visits to your website and your measly cover price. Tonight I'm dedicating Radiohead's "Just" to the slow and messy demise of #BoycottSpinMagazine... "You did it to yourself." - Love Thom!
#BoycottSpinMagazine immediately got an overwhelming amount of support from fans and eventually trended in the US. What do you think of Spin Magazine's analysis of "Bitch Bad"? Leave your thoughts in the comments below!

Rejoice, Lupe fans. The kid who made Food & Liquor & The Cool never fell off. The Great American Rap Album Part 1 is a reminder that no matter what he does outside of the booth, inside of it he is in a rare class of his own.

Lyrically, Lupe rises even higher than expected. Sonically, the established chemistry he's made with Soundtrakk over the years is apparent. The sequel to this album, which he says is already 85% finished, is said to be out in late 2012 or 2013 and he feels it is better.

Lupe's "out-of-this-world" concepts intrigue Trip Lee

1 comment:

In a recent interview with The BoomBox Trip Lee was asked to name a song or artist he heard over the years that really stuck out to him and he had the following to say:

I could think of a dude whose music I think has a lot of creativity, a lot of creative concepts is Lupe Fiasco. He's a dude who's creative, has concepts out-of-this-world. His first album, Food & Liquor, was my favorite one of his.

He has so many songs. He has one called "He Say, She Say." The first verse was a mother talking to the father of her baby basically like, "He wants you to be a father, he's your little boy. You don't even bother." And then the next one was the son saying the same thing. And I think a song like that, man, I really enjoyed it cause he communicates the issue that we all know is there, which is a lot of fatherless sons who don't have their dad around.

He starts to talk about some of the issues he's having at school and stuff and it hits you the first time around when the mom says it to him, and the second time around, same verse, just from the son's perspective and it hits you even more in another way 'cause, well, here's a little boy and he doesn't have his father. Those are the kinds of songs I think, "Man, that's a good concept, I wish I would have thought of that, wish I would have done it." But he killed it and I was appreciative of that song.
