Midnight Marauders is a classic to me, but it just seems like a bunch of hip-hop purists crying about how one man hasnt listened to one album, 'Midnight Marauders'.

I understand the backlash of not listening and preparing for the one song you are performing 2 pay tribute, but to act like just because he has that same 'native tongue' feel and hasn't listened to Midnight Marauders is a crime against hip-hop.

If I was Lupe I would give a big fu*k YOU to all of them crying a.ss hip-hop-hoes. Especially Questlove and Phonte.

i know someone who knows q tip personally. he said hes a complete d*ckhead. im sure that something was said between them and lupe was baited into saying what he did. it wasnt right for him to do but then again if they asked him to do something and he tried to learn the lyrics and couldnt then its really not his fault.

Lupe is MY n*gga.....I know the n*gga personally....but maaaaaaan.....

YOU CANNOT fu*k UP ELECTRIC RELAXATION!!!

If you don't know it, don't do it....more than anything, it just opens doors for n*ggas to say one of the realest n*ggas spittin is a phony. I don't give a fu*k if Q-Tip, VH1, fu*kin VO-5 shampoo asked the n*gga to do it. He shoulda simply said, "I'm not familiar with Tribes' sh*t. I can't fu*k wit it."

PERIOD.

By the way.....M.M. is NOT Tribes' best album.....L.E.T. is!!!!

Its always the bench warmers callin out the players flaws... I hate no life bi*ches wit "blogs".. men and women both... I put em on the same level wit paparazzi... but at least the paparazzi gettin money for bein bottom feeders.. These mufukas think just cause they got a computer and a opinion they life finally has a purpose..

And as far as Lupe.. he only a human he aint no super robot that has every line from history embedded in his fu*kin head... all yall tryin to crucify him over this bullsh*t need to tie a bag around your head then handcuff your hands behind your back...


I agree to a certain extent. If I was asked to preform songs in your behalf, as a professional I'd either decline or learn your sh*t. He was unprepared (which i don't understand at all) and worse he didn't take accountability and say, i messed up the words and kept it movin. His error was trying to sh*t on tribe, who paved the lane he's stuck in, by downplaying their impact.

Kanye WEst, Common, and Lupe are the main front runners of Chicago and they arent gangsta street music. And if u havent heard alot of those albums u say u havent then where have u been?????
no theyre not....the industry has blinded too many people with that sh*t. everytime someone thinks of "chicago music" people think of kanye and common. yes theyre a part of chicago but just cause they more known in the mainstream don't mean that's the main style of chicago

go check out traxster, ec illa, do or die, crucial conflict, triple darkness, ec illa, da smart. the list keeps going with sh*t that sounds NOTHIN like kanye or do or die

I feel my n*gga Lupe. Nigagz always think you gotta be a certain way and like certain people just cuz you into hip hop. Not everyone fu*ks with Nas, Jigga, Pac, Biggie, Tribe(though i did) or anyone else. These artist don't define hiphop, they were just a piece of it. If he listened to Ball n G, then that's him.

I'm with lupe all day, for one I am chicago and I am also 25, and in most cases growing up in the chi we really didn't listen to too much ny sh*t until like the late 90's and even then it was a small percentage, take a look at chicago rap we mostly fu*k with dance music or gangsta sh*t, like lupe said ball & jg knocked hard all around the chi, and imma tell ya right now till this day I tried to listen to atcq but I just never liked the sh*t, chitown is known for crucial conflict, do or die, twista, da brat, infamous syndicate, psychodrama, etc. Yall just gotta understand where we come from, go outside an do a survey on how many cats have listened to atcq in chicago compared to roughly any mainstream artist and let me know the results....................

Lupe is highly influenced by Crucial Conflict and Nas among others. Lupe regards It Was Written as his favorite album and cites it as his primary source of inspiration. For instance, when asked of his influences in an interview with AllHipHop.com, Lupe stated the following: "You know I really tried to go back and recreate [Nas'] It Was Written, you know what I'm saying like that? [I would play] It Was Written and then I would play my album, and it was like, `Do we got [this] record, do we got that record?'"[1]

In a following interview with Nobody Smiling:

NobodySmiling.com : I heard about Q-Tip dissing you on Miss Info the other day. Wasn't Q-Tip one of your heavy influences?

Lupe Fiasco : Nah, family. I was busy rockin' my Skee-Lo album and watchin' the movie Mystic Pizza. I didn't wanna waste time listening to a man named after an ear hygiene product.

NobodySmiling.com : Whpsh whpsh psh. Now you've said many times that your album is modeled after `It Was Written,' and a lot of people wouldn't admit that because a lot people would be like He's biting or whatever. So why do you feel so comfortable admitting that?

Lupe Fiasco : Cause it's a classic. Like, people study-you study the masters, you know what I'm saying? Everybody that's rapping studied someone to learn how to rap. They had a rapper who was they favorite rapper that they wanted to be like and wanted to rap like, know what I'm saying? For me, I just look at it like I studied a masterpiece. I modeled my album after a masterpiece; and not song for song; not line for line; not beat for beat. It was more-for me it was like mood for mood. The way he set the mood on that album to me was just like incredible. And at the time in my life-like, I fell in love with 'It Was Written' when I was seventeen/eighteen—a very impressionable time—so I was like I love that album. That's my favorite Hip Hop album, so it's like why not base your album on 'It Was Written?' [13]

Along with It Was Written, Lupe claims to have enjoyed music by 2Pac, Too $hort and Jay-Z in "Hurt Me Soul." He has also cited DANGERDOOM and The Teriyaki Boyz as his current favorites.
Lupe a real n*gga, he ain't d*ck riding like certain people (Phonte!!!!!)

to those sayin that ATCQ is a.ss then yea maybe...if they just came out now. but to appreciate what they did is to put their music in the context of the environment back then. then u'll see...oh sh*t...Tribe was on some other sh*t. remember when pagers came out?? them sh*ts was hot. like oh this is that next sh*t. now what? everybody walkin around with mini computers that, if u want, u can call someone from.

i did find it shocking cause i thought (assumed) Lupe drew influences from ATCQ. BUT Tribe is still one of my favorites and ima still bump Lupe.
