Jay aint Complex. He's Witty and Charming.

Lupe Is Super Complex at times.

Lyrically Lu is very special with his word play, Jay can be too sometimes but he's more so witty than anything, his schemes are arguably the best, you can't go wrong either way but if both were to go bar for bar in the streets I'd take Hov, on a track I might take Lu, either way they both are extremely dope

Lupe can take a metaphor and make it a concept of a whole verse, Jay just witty and has some dope triple entendres.

With that said, Jay outshines him on Pressure.

Lupe and its not even close. Nobody can fu*k with him when it comes to weaving words together


And i love Jay, i think he makes better songs overall but lu is next level with the bars.

Came in here to mention this, honestly Jay's warhol verse puts this entire conversation to bed.

growing up for me meant coming to terms with the fact that lupe had a tendency to be "fake deep". He had a lot of lines that seemed super smart and were puddle deep. He was always at his best when he stayed away from that and just straight up told the story.

So yes, he's very allegorical but the allegory itself is usually rather shallow and not well thought out. Whereas with Jay he can give you an entire social commentary in 1 line. In my mind i think of lyrical ability being how easily one can convey a complex idea and I gotta give it to Jay for that, he has such a crazy command of language that he can make one line resonate with you and tell you an entire story.

Lupe can be too complex which can take away from a record.

SLR is a just dope bars and I like on Put Em Up how he took the concept of the Kings son and branch the metaphor throughout the entire verse or even Double Burger With Cheese flowing classic hood movie scene together.

He is technically better than Jay but by choice. Jay does not try to go over ppl heads too much, while that can be Lupe goal at times. The triple entendre on Otis is still one of the illest lines I've ever heard. He can grab the average listener as well as lyrical buffs that dissect his verses.
