He Say, She Say. It's my favorite song because it really hits home with me. My father left when i was just a little kid and it seems like he wants nothing to do with me, while my mother tries to do everything for me. I love how both verses in the song are essentially the same, just from different perspectives because my mom and i both feel the same about the situation. We both wish my father would (have) been there for me more growing up.

It's impossible to pick just one song by Lupe, dude kills mixtapes and albums. If I had to choose one song it would probably be Conflict Diamonds for Lupe's flow, lyrics, and overall killing of the track.

It's close but I'd say Till I Get There is my favourite, i find it very inspirational :D

"Hip Hop Saved My Life"- Great story great beat and great hook. What else do you need?

Your an inspiration to me, and to future generations. My first favorite song was by you and skylar gray, the words I never said. This is more than a song but a movement that the youth should be a part off. You speak the truth in your songs Lupe. Your a Muslim and proud but dont just wear religion on your sleeve. You have a great heart. There will be so many comments on this board and Ill doubt I will win this poster but its the luck of the draw. I wish I met you in Detroit. Thank you for being real, for being a human being and for rapping about he truth. By the way its my Birthday on May 13th. this will be an ultimate Birthday gift :-)

Favorite lupe song is Till I Get There, the song is very inspirational, calming, and it thought me to look at things positively and being real at the same time. it is one of these songs that makes you want to be a better version of yourself, and be hopeful that you will eventually get there, of course I might hit some downs and bumps, but I’ll Get There. I hope you release this song as one of you singles Lupe. And am a big fan from a far away land, I hope you come to Abu Dhabi or Dubai one day and perform for us. Am going to be honest with you, I usually don’t buy music online, but you’re the only one that I bought all three albums, to humbly support you and what you believe in an artistic matter, and bring out all the realness that every one ignores. I hope I get the poster Lupe, so I can brag about it to my friends, and don’t forget you have a BIG fan base here!

Words I Never Said because I can relate to the lyrics and completely agree! :)

If the rapper raps about girls and cars and money...that's true If the rapper raps about the tyranny, the terrorism and corruption...that's true Rappers rap about the truth they choose to rap about and in the truths in which they indulge in their own lives and so Words I Never Said get's my vote - and the title of this song indicates the fact that these truths are often not rapped about and that is exactly why Lupe Fiasco has greater courage rapping about the truths in Words I Never Said moreso than the other truths, because these truths and these words are not wanted to be said and are seldom said.

The Instrumental. What rap needs.

My favorite song is i'll never forget you because it reminds me of my brother that passed away last year in a car accident. Listening to the song makes me not miss him soo much

What's up Lupe my favorite song is "The words I never said" simply because I talk to people about alot of cover ups, and the lies ect" the song tells people to research it on their own. They don't have to believe me, I am only tellng people to look at the evidence for theirself. You made it so that the song inspires people to listen to kinda open up now cause everything is out in their faces and they can acknowledge it now alot easier. BESIDES ALL THAT THE SONG IS HOT. who woulda thought lyricism being dead would breed a truth movement and get people to listen to music again.

I honestly can't choose one song. But the songs I listen to most are Solar Midnight and Daydreaming. Daydreaming just always puts me in a good mood, and Solar Midnight is lovely.

What my favorite Lupe song? Hurt Me Soul off of Food and Liquor Why? Because without the experiences and personal conflicts that Lupe discusses in this song he wouldn't be the greatest rapper in the game. Lupe spits the truth, Instead of rapping about drugs and hoes. Why? Cause thats a back track and Lupe aint tryin to back that.

I like Words I Never Said the most because it shows that artists can actually put thought into their lyrics and it has a great message.

Till i get there, off Lasers is definitely my favorite song. It gives me hope that someday i will earn everything i want. It lets me know it can be done and it inspires me to keep doing me, and that will work out for the best. It gets me pumped up every time i hear it

"The Coolest" is my favorite hands down, by any artist of any gerne. It's simply a perfect song. Its more of a poem then a song actually. This is a work of art. Love LASERS, Keep doin you Lupe. We all know you will and keep hip hop alive. Much Love, Rob_Nasty

Words I never said. Its about real life, and its the truth so many people are afraid to say. I love his music because it's not just about girls and money. Also I was embarrased about being Muslim, but Lupe made me realize that I don't have to be :)

Favorite song has to be Dumb it Down. Lyrically, the song is genius, but I really love how it displays what Lupe is all about, and what he believes in.

Favourite is definitely "The Coolest". I never get tired of it and the story/lyrics is so well put together and flowing.

Dumb it down- amazing flow and rhymes that are deliciously contradictory of the title.

Put You On Game, It fulfills the poetic potential of hip hop to it's very fullest

And he gets the girl. Story just hits home and I gotta say the song is better than the original n.e.r.d track maybe IMHO!

All Black Everything- This song gives me absolute chills. The play on words, and the messages that each line is opposed to black and white is just so much deeper than a lot of the other songs. America and it's government has it's secrets and I think that this song is also a reminder for everyone to open their eyes and stop believing everyone and everything that's said. Just what I think.

Words I Never Said Definitely one of the deepest songs I've heard from him.

Beautiful Lasers. I can relate to the song and what Lupe was going through. But, if he can beat it and keep moving forward then I can too.

'Hip Hop has Saved My Life'. Prior to listening to 'The Cool' my life was revolved around sports and partying. Then my senior year i blew out my knee, didn't know which way to turn. Started thinking life wasn't going to be the same being limited physically for the rest of my life. Needed something else to believe in, hip hop was the answer. Lupe was that answer. Been jamming to Lupe since '09, never gonna stop. Lupe is hip hop, you saved my life.
