And now you're trying to criticize somebody who is emotionally invested in their art. Dude is clearly making a conscious effort to expose all the bullsh*t aspect of the culture, so I'm sure it's upsetting as hell when people write it off as half-assed attempt.


Yeah pretty much, men are not suppose to be that concerned about what other men think of them.

It's one thing to be emotionally invested in your art, it's another thing to be emotionally invested in someone else's opinion.


Hate and criticism come with the territory , the way Lupe responds to things like this make it seem like he actually expected everyone to be all on his dyck like he's the savior of rap or something.

honestly, bottom line is dude is a cry baby AND a hypocrite, when someone wants to do their job and critique his art, it's a problem, but when fans want to criticize bullshyt like Lasers or call him a disgrace for doing a tribe tribute without bothering to memorize the lyrics then he goes ape shyt and starts telling fans to get off their high horse.

How does that make any sense ?? it's obvious dude is full of himself.

I don't understand what's wrong with a hip hop artist trying to touch on subjects that are often over looked. Lupe makes you really sit back and think about what he's saying, he's one of the few rappers that can put emotion in his songs while delivering a positive (or at least thought provoking) message.

As far as this whole issue goes, Lupe thought it was important enough to address. If that's what he wants to do, let him. Those of you who disagree with Lupe complaining are coming into this thread and doing the same thing.

At the end of the day, with all the bullsh*t Lupe has gone through, he still has one of the best discographies of any relevant rapper in the game. And he's done a lot of that with very little help, you won't see Lupe with 10 guest rappers on his album, dude holds his own.

Hip Hop needs F&L2.

Lupe focus all wrong.

He aint able to reach the people his message is trying to go to, they too ignorant to understand the music hes been making. If Lupe got ignorant, he'd be able to spit knowledge to dumb n*ggas the same way Pac did.

Also, how is this any different than 50 Cent stirring up a bunch of beefs before album releases (at least in the past)? It seems like we're all talking about Lupe, so if this is just some undercover guise to get more exposure, it's working

it's not just criticism, it's an attack on his character, his craft, his life ... everything he puts his effort into. Then you got people here and there constantly getting their opinions and "facts," published to millions of people.



He's a public figure though, attacks on your character, craft, and life should be more expected than paparazzi photos. It's apart of being a celebrity. As talentless as Kim Kardashian is, she gets way worse harsh criticism and personal jabs to her on the DAILY and rolls with it 100 times better. Lupe is a grown man for god's sake. If he had to deal with the same type of criticism he would've either committed suicide by now or quit.

He's free to complain about it all he wants but you can't expect us not to or at how sensitive he is.

and honestly at times he comes off as trying to force feed his fans his philosophical perspectives in a very pretentious manner when in his personal life he behaves in a way that almost contradicts what he portrays himself as in his music.

that's why ol boy Wasalu comes off to me as a very lost, confused, sensitive and emotional soul.

I dont have an issue with anyone especially a journalist putting forth some serious critique on a song positive or negative. However it is statements like "reckless social commentary". I am not exactly sure what is so reckless about the song and video. Did he comment that "Stupid Hoe" was reckless given Nicki's young following? Probably not. He makes comments about Lupe misrepresenting what hip hop is using a "50 Cent" like character. First of all 50 is not who I thought of when I saw this video and second has he seen videos like "Hold Me Back" or just gone to worldstar or listened to the fu*king radio? There are many negative things he could have said and critiqued the approach or execution, but he decided to go with comments that expose a possible personal issue at the worst and at best just looks like unprofessional and unprepared journalism.
The video and the song was dead on!!! Especially when we are talking about how children are looking at adults especially that 1st and 2nd verse. I didnt for one second think he was talking about 50 cent. If anything I was looking like is that Plies in this video? Spin is just trying to get more spin along w/ keeping hip hop culture in this buy $300 sneakers, k!ll n*ggas, and get bi*ches all day era.
