brah, that's cool and all... Im a kendrick fan..BEEN listening for a long time now...

and trust me, his little thing is cool, BUT as a black man, that see's the destruction of our culture and people on a daily basis... LUPES message speaks volumes to me, It's crazy how he catches flack for his craft...

kendrick just has a hell of a flow, and he knows how to connect to this generations of ppl.. In 5years it'll be someone else..

Lupe sh*t is TIMELESS... i have sh*t from him from 2005 that's still sick and relevant today.

Thats cool and all, but its just your opinion. Lupe used to say stuff in his songs, American Terrorist was the sh*t. And you see flashes of it (Words I Never Said) but Lupe has fell off quite a bit and he isn't really smart he just pretends to be, he couldn't articulate anything when he went on Fox News to see O-Reilly, looked like a damn fool.

Indeed! BUT, I would credit a large amount of his "fall-off" to the hoops he's had to jump thru just to get his projects out... His lyrics are still there, still going over your head if you're not really listening... its the "presentation" (beats) that are changing peoples minds about Lu'...

and I can say the same thing about kendrick.. "swimming pools"?? a.sscheeks. "The recipe".. ehhh. without that Dr. Dre co-sign this wouldn't even be a debate honestly

Not everyone who is smart is a articulate speaker. To say Lupe isn't smart is foolishness. I've saw that nonsense catch on around here lately..lol. You don't write songs like Hurt Me Soul, Streets on Fire, Put You on Game, Failure, Dumb it Down, Glory etc, & not be smart. It's just not possible bruh..
He is smart enough to craft songs yes but he doesn't have the answers, he is a pseduo-intellectual that makes songs with political undertones and people praise him like he is changing the world

EDIT: To you and the other guy, I been a fan of Lupe for years, I just think Kendrick is good. Lupe has 2 close to classic CDs and Kendrick has 2 tapes that are close to classic (in my opinion)

This whole post speaks to the fu*kery of major labels as a whole.... I do like the 2 KDot songs you mentioned tho.

At the end of the day, its all opinion anyways

Lupe just doesn't want to hop on a collab, body Kendrick Lamar, and taint his career. That's what I took from it, Lamar shows promise, but he aint fu*kin with Lupe.

What he said makes sense. Why when every new artist comes along (thats dope) do rappers feel the need to collaborate with them. Sometimes you gotta let them do their own thing.
PREACHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

I think Lu just giving that answer to take the pressure off of forcing anything. I am not an artist but I dont think doing collabs is an easy thing based to do given schedules and lawyers. I also doubt Lu is scared, dude has a massive ego when it comes to his craft, if anything he probably thinks he would destroy him so bad it wouldnt be a good look for Kendrick. On top of that he already went on a track with a legend and although I love both verses I thought Lupe's was slightly better.
This is the most sensible post I have read in this thread. Not saying I disagreeing with opinions, this is just the most likely reasoning.

Pressure is one of my fav lupe tracks and I still think jay's verse is one of his better verses since the grammy family freestyle. Lupe got him on that. Dude just rapped about trousers and jeans, boxers, etc. So no, lupe aint afraid of sh*t.

Altho I am a fan of both k. dot and lupe.....they are both immensely talented but they can be hit or miss sometimes. If they did manage to sort out a collabo I wouldnt be surprised if it was on some weird jazzy chanting type neo-rap bullsh*t that I aint tryna hear. #nocollabneeded

Maybe Lupe doesn't do features because other rappers think they'll lose all their fans in a second if they got Lupe on there spittin about princess unicorns, hope rainbows, cybertronic mastermind robots, and sh*t.

It's all about getting an artist that will get your track play, and unfortunately [blank] feat. Lupe Fiasco will not give you nearly as much play as [blank] feat. LiL Wayne, Young Jeezy, Drake, Nicki Minaj, 2 Chainz.

Lupe has respect for Kendrick, what is wrong with that?

The thing is nobody would KNOW when they got bodied on a track by Lupe. He'd be on some triple theme metaphorical sh*t and nobody would know except Lupe heads.

from what i understand, if lupe doesn't know you personally and/or consider you a friend a chance of a feature is 0, and even then, its really how he feels at the time its presented to him... its weird, but true
