I'm going to keep it 100% Because I know for a fact that Lupe reads these boards.


Yeah it's cool and all that he cried, and unafraid to show emotion on camera, however I can't help to comment that if he cares that much, to evoke that much emotion. How come I never hear about him on the West side consistently doing fund raisers or handing out school supplies etc.. He clearly has the power and influence to do fund raisers, has the connects to get even small contributions. If he cares that much, why is he not doing HIS part, with the power and celebrity status he holds.

- "I see, diamond flooded demons, Lamborghini angels
Halos down with the doors flapping when they came through
Windows up, system bumping, you the one they sang to
Same two, who said they the ones you should send your thanks through
Pockets full of blessings, they can sanctify and saint you
You can hear them revving/reverend up in heaven now, can't you?
Sandals made of chrome, his soul made of leather
An engine full of sinning and candy painted feathers
The sound of the motor only revving/reverend you confess to
I see this all in the eyes of the girl I'm next to
I asked her "Where we going?" and she just told me "Pleasure"
Hands on the wheel and her heels on the acceler-
-rator, told her wait up, she kept going like et cetera
Or like a broken record, we've come too far to just wheel it back selector
So we going ride forever, forever, forever, forever, forever"
- Lupe on Angel's Remix w/ Dirty Money

my current fav verse from dude... will look out for F&L2

Lupe needs to put himself in a position to give people from his community jobs and emplyoment opportunities so they wont get swallowed up in the cycle.

Tears after the fact dont mean sh*t, you need to put your dogs on and give them a way out.

You see what's wrong with the culture is reflected by some of the negative comments in this thread. All you people reppin' Chi-Town "Bang-Bang" and sh!t like that, let me know how it feels when one of your homies die for no reason, or tell me how your mother feels when your brother dies for no reason. You all want to be ignorant like that sh*t is in fashion and when its too late you wanna cop pleas and get your people to wear "Free such-and-such" T-Shirts. And aT THE END OF THE DAY, LUPE STILL LOVES YOU bi*ch-ASS n*ggaS.

Serious question

I see a few dudes posting that people who come up from the hood need to give back. Why? Why should they give back? Why should they bust their a.ss and then throw it away for people just hoping for some sh*t to happen? Why not go out and get it yourself? That really urks me. Dude can get emotional if he wants. Its where he is from. Doesn't mean for every dead body he has to drop a stack to the community. What the hell is that going to do?
Then if you don't give back you shouldn't be getting all emotional period. If you don't care enough to try and change the situation, or at least make appearances for the youth, the next generation who has a chance to escape, whats the point of the tears?


White America already don't give a fu*k about the hood, so you saying people who come from the hood should also not give a fu*k about it either? Thats the reason why black people lack the since of 'community'.. White people give back to their own communities and places, and damn sure make sure they snitch and call crime stoppers to moniter their neighborhood. It's that same "i dont give a fu*k attitude" that has the hood looking the way it does.. If Lupe shares that same mentality as you say he should, he has no business crying period.. I just hope he doesn't.

On one hand you want to talk about how the American government is fu*kin ruining the country and don't care about the hood. But what are you doing as a person to change it, when so few people who come from the hood grow up in a power of position to make that change. You can't pretend to care, and do nothing at all. Pretend to be some sort of rap activist, but what movements have you created? Lupe just seems like a con IMO. Pac was in countless and countless amount of organizations, kids groups giving back. I hope Lupe doesn't think just raping on a beat with a nice tune is going to make the hood magically get better..

Get his a.ss out there and organize some groups to pick up trash, clean up graffiti, simple sh*t.

I don't know if he's giving back or not....but if he's not then he should try to..BUT at the same time he can do his best to give back and create opportunities for his community, but yet these n*ggas are so stuck in this hood mentality that its all they know and they'd rather die for it...and you also gotta factor in that most of them just expect handouts and do try to strive for themselves. Like I said before, we have to influence in motivate others, but if that person can't motivate themselves, then how can he/she be influenced and motivated by someone else? n*ggas are gonna have to change themselves and their ways before any community as a whole can be changed. Its one of them "damn if you do, damn if you don't" situations. If he does give back, then n*ggas are gonna act like he's better than them out of jealousy, or ask him for a handout...yet if he doesn't give back, then n*ggas will act like he doesn't give a damn...
