People have been putting out these massive singles, but the albums have been garbage. The public gets sucked into buying it and then when the album isnt good, that hurts the sales nowadays. You have people walking around with an album thats nothing but a collection of singles from various ones.

First let me shout out my boy Kevin L. Clark for the interview. Me and him both talk about our interviews that we do and he's a smart college dude, doing his thing.

2nd, I like how he said his first rhymes were influenced by Ice Cube and Spice 1!!! Spice used to be my favorite rapper ever. Amerikkka's Nightmare was 1 of the hardest albums ever!!!

3rd. I respect a lot of what Lupe has to say. Hip hop is dying slowly, the big record companies look at us as incompetant people who will buy anything with a stupid hook. Chicken Noodle Soup for example. What he is saying is true, I wish there were more like him and Mos Def, and Talib Kweli in this game. They rap for the love of music, not for the money. The money will eventually come. But these other cats rap for the money, not the music, that's when people fall off, and that's why hip hop is at its worst stage in history. People aren't selling albums like a year or two ago, it's not because people aren't buying. It's because people aren't BUYING into the whole falseness that it represents. I've met plenty of artists, too many to name, and have seen that what they represent on wax, is not what they rep in real life. When people forget that this rap sh*t isn't real, and try to protray what they hear in the music, is what's dumbing down minority society. White people listen to rap, but do you see them do the sh*t that they hear? No. We have to teach eachother about tolerance first, but also about reality. The real street reality is a very ugly life to live, and the people who live it, aren't millionaires, with platinum grillz, or bentleys. They're the ones who die everyday and have means of survival. I'm not gonna talk too much as I already did, but Lupe will get better in time. I'm glad he didn't have to "dumb down" his music, just so he could sell a few hundred thousand. Props for him.

lupe one of the realest n*ggas int he industry period. I just hope that peeps dont think that hardcore sh*t dont automatically make it whak sh*t. NWA sh*t was gangsta but you listen to they sh*t and its hot. It aint like this young dro sh*t...the feel is different even though they both can be on some violent sh*t. Violent rap music dont mean it whack .... sh*t I still bang doggystyle..and yall know that album is on that gangsta sh*t..but somethin bout it...that feel is there naa mean...bad influence or not.

I was talkin to this n*gga bout this type of sh*t and he told me his fave rappers is common, talib, mos...all them type of "conciouse" dudes and he told me n*ggas like Jay is whack (he even said reasonable doubt jay is whack) just cause the n*gga is on some gangsta sh*t.

There is that good gangsta sh*t but n*ggas these days is too fu*kin whack with they sh*t. Jay's reasonable doubt..he had some real sh*t. He was real for that record cause he talked bout how he feel. Wu Tang was ont hat hardcore sh*t but them n*ggas was hot.

I just dont want n*ggas thinkin that gun talk and diamonds and sh*t mean it whack automatically. sh*t ..Jay and Common is in my list for my best rappers

he's ok at best on the mic i respected him cuz of the chicago thing but every article i read of him he comes off more like a dumbass. he's a hippocrit. he did a song with joe budden who talks about Drugs, Shooting Etc. Thought he was muslim or w/e? but w.e thats not even y i dislike him i dislike him cuz he say's


then y r u in it dumbass? he trys to make it seem like hip hop isnt the music he truly wants to do all he talks about all the time is how hip hop is fu*ked up. OOOO BUT HES THE SAVIOR OF RAP? my a.ss the dude even said hes doing 3 albums and thats it. savior of rap? i think not
He's talking about what labels expect from you in that business. He spit real sh*t. All rappers talk about guns at one point. He grew up in chicago, motherland of many gangs listen to sittin sideways remix. that song got me listening to lupe and the dead presidents remix. give it a chance if you dont like it let it be and dont put anymore energy and time on something that doesnt appeal to you...than just smoke one

As far as him doin only 3 albums....that's his own personal decision..they label him "Rap's savior"...not him....but "they"......im outt

i dont think he is a hypocrit...

he is trying to balance all the different aspects of his life like everyone else...

he is an intelligent man talking about intelligent issues... but he is also from the streets... so he talks about those issues as well...

same as people claiming a jayz cant talk about the hood anymore because he doesnt live there... he is too rich...

he was once from the hood... he has an obligation to talk about everything that comes to his mind... whether its wearing sandals on rodeo drive or carrying a pistol in the marcy projects...

rappers become hypocrtical when they rhyme about issues theyve never lived or examined... or truly thought on... whether its carrying a gun, robbing someone or speaking on philosophy

lupe is extremely impressive... he has shown that he can just get down and dirty rhyming on songs like 'switch'... that song is rugged but still intelligent thought there...

he doesnt have a god complex... he is just enlightened... he sees what a lot of others are having a hard time seeing
