Lupé: Hip-Hop is bad. You have Talib Kweli and others who are out there and get no shine. Even if you go with the underground, a lot that is negative. It went from I’m a better MC than you to my gun is this big. You still have cross-sections where it’s positive, but a lot of Hip-Hop is bad. Look at the amount of records that 50 Cent sold versus Mos Def. That’s 20 million more very violent albums that are put out there in the world. It is bad. I went overseas and people were talking about how the Parliament is trying to ban Hip-Hop because of something called “night culture”. It’s where kids are influenced to carry knives. But then a Hip-Hop record came on and talked about how big his knife was. I mean if you really conscious, you have to look at it objectively and think about what’s really going on. People are really talking about us and how we’re affecting society. As far as "Pop, Pop", that is what I was doing! There are pictures of me with diamonds and guns. But I have been around guns my whole life. All through my high school career, I walked around with a nine. I can’t give everyone my history, but I’m from the hood, just like everyone is from the hood. I remember that my hallway was covered with blood because this guy ran through it bleeding. But over the years I became real with myself. That’s why ’99 Lupé is different than 2006 version.


realest talk!!!!!!

To be honest with everyone, Lupe speaks the truth and if you read this article/interview and feel incline to disrespect him, then you are just the ignorant person that he speaks of.

Respect to what he said, it's the truth for the most part.

However Lupe confuses me. He seemed to get caught off-guard when they asked him about his '03 track. He reiterated what he said previously in the interview, leading me to believe he didn't have a good enough answer for it.

I do enjoy his music, and he is definitly beneficial to the game, however he doesn't seem natural. Like everyone says, he is smart; smart enough to know how to change his persona.

He didn't say a single word in that interview that any true, self-respecting hip hop fan doesn't already know.

But he put it out there for the rest to see, and that is probably what matters most.

that's an ignorant response -- George Bush is also "someone right now," so what does that mean?

Thats some real talk from Lupe. I know its still too early to say, but I think that he seriously has the POTENTIAL to be top 5 or 10 of all time, that is before I found out he only wants to drop 3 albums. Because of that, I don't think he is fully being true to Hip Hop. But who knows, those albums can have a huge impact (not commercially) and just might be enough to solidify his status. Biggie only had 2 albums, and many consider him to be the g.o.a.t. (not me personally).

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 in it because loves Hip Hop, NOT what Hip Hop has become (those are two separate things "dumbass") Hip Hop nowadays is exactly what Lupe was saying, everyone talking about guns, I'll shoot you cuz I have a bigger crew, I love bi*ches, money, got the hottest car, etc. etc. That's why n*ggas like Rick Ross, DipSet, 50 Cent, etc. be selling. STFU for a minute and look around you, and tell me I'm lying.
