My favorite Lupe song is Coulda Been. It's just so real, like every bar is just raw. My favorite lines: "I could be starting, guarding or planting a garden or security guarding or I could be starving, and eating out ya garbage or staring in sitcoms with Martin, the way Lupe's wordplay there is insane to me. This song spoke to me, and really made me think about what I could be doing if I wasn't where I am now.

Daydreamin'. Without a doubt! It's my favorite by Lupe because no matter how many new songs he puts out that is one I can put on repeat and will never get old! I even got it tattooed on my side... Along with the LASERS tattoo that I have!

Well I've been listening to Lupe for a while now and its going to take some thought to come up with this answer but... My favorite Lupe Fiasco song would have to be... Hmmm, ya kno I cycle through the many, upon many, Lupe songs I have and I just can't come to pick one. Every flow of every song has a story/moral/profound insight on a particular situation that it's hard to choose. My favorite song would be a compilation of some of his various profound lyrics mixed to a instrumental made from the synthesizer and horn work of "Sunshine", the steady beat and bass of "Dear Fall", the vocals from "We Love You feat Sway", and the overall smoothness of "Hurt Me Soul". It can not be one of those cheesy mash-together types- where the verses are off tempo- It has to be in perfect harmony, so i can ride to it with the top and windows down. We all have our rough days, high and lows, and moments where we seek some clarity. Lupe's music provides these and I feel we all could use it. Man, I hope to get one, I scraped my brain for that... we'll see :)

I love them all, but if I had to pick a favorite, I'd go with The Cool. The beat is fantastic, and the story that Lupe tells is mesmerizing. It's one of those songs that you just can't stop paying attention to, once it starts playing.

Lupe Fiasco is legit on of my favorite rappers ever! Picking a song... I'd have to say Hip Hop Saved My Life! he is one of the few rappers who always raps about things that matter, which is why I love him! This song is just amazing, and honestly Hip Hop(music in general) has saved my life, especially his! :)

I really can't say I have a favorite song, but I have favorites. Word's I've Never Said is my favorite from the newest album, Lasers. The execution was amazing! The lyrics were informative, as all your songs are, but I'm so excited for this new sound coming from this album. I play that track over and over again to enlighten myself, remind myself, and just to put myself in a good mood. Music has the power to do that to you when you're driving to a job you don't particularly like. My first favorite Lupe song added on the list was Real from Food & Liquor. This is the song that made me fall in love with Lupe Fiasco. I love that song! Every song between Intruder Alert and Gotta Eat are equally amazing on The Cool album for different reasons. The track Turnt Up on Enemy of the State: A Love Story is the song I play for all to hear your amazingness! Your talent truly shows here and I insist people are sleeping on your skills. I play Turnt Up for them and turn them into believers. MUCH LOVE & respect Lupe!

I love them all. As of lately I have been listening to The Show Goes On almost every morning going to work. I am a teacher so there are some lyrics that hit close to my philosophy in what I teach. "Five in the air for the teachers not scared To tell those kids that's livin' in the ghetto That the n***** holdin' back that the world is theirs" But I have never heard a bad song. I know ppl say lupe sold out and his 3rd album sucks but I disagree completely. Yes his songs are more commercial but his rap style and song choices are still the same as they have always been. He is appealing to more fans but at the same time staying true to himself.

Hurt me soul is my favorite. It damn near has every random thought I've had about society in general in that song. Also, I like the vid I saw for he gets the girl. Took me back to high school and how intense those emotions are at that age.(like I'm so old now!)

I would have to pick Little Weapon...Lupe is an amazing story teller the way he uses his words to bring beats to life with the vision he wants u to see on the real things around us in the world that ppl either dont know about and others choose to overlook......Little Weapon explains how kids are use in war tactics for the things kids here play with everyday......life is different everywhere and im glad there are understanding brave ppl that will let the rest of the world know how they feel about real issues

I have soo many favorite Lupe tracks, but if I had to pick it would probably be the cool. Lupe has an amazing and cunning way of conveying his feelings! The cool to me is a story, and Lupe managed to present it very detailed. He is just an amazing artist!

This is hard ! But ... The Die ! Because that whole concept is crazy ! And ...anytime I let a friend listen to it they dont get it till like I explain it to them, then their BLOWN away ! then I'm like haaaa yeah what better story your favorite rapper got?? lol... but yeah it took me like 4 repeats to get that whole thing ! Story + crazy metaphors ...EX : I heard like group of cows ..beginning to end crazy . And you just hadda overkill it with the The Cool playing in the car at the end !! ..."Aint too cool now is you ?" Thats def 1 of if not the favorites. And Gemstones part as much as I know the song can never sing along with ! How many takes did you have to do for that !? Great Song..

"Never Forget You" featuring John Legend. The lyrics and melody really hits the soul. "Moments of the past, came here to find you, not to relive them, just to remind you."

I have to say "Daydreamin'" because it has my favorite metaphor in all of Hip-Hop. It was damn hard to pick one though.

My favorite song of Lupe's is "Words I Never Said". He speaks out his mind about the Issues with the government in the song which is something I really admire. I love how he doesn't resort to anything typical rappers tend to rap about. He's definately the best lyricist and truly delivers the news on his raps.

My favourite is "Angels (Remix)" from Enemy of The State. I never thought a song about cars, and girls could be so damn lyrical, metaphorical and just superb! "Sandals made of chrome, his soul made of leather An engine full of sinning and candy painted feathers" Just awesome! I play it at nights while cruising round the city! I love it, my friends love it!

Intruder Alert. "He said nobody else ever loved him, Thats why he get high enough to go touch the heavens above em, Vividly remembers every pipe, Every needle that stuck em, Every alley he ever slept in, Every purse that he snuck in, Every level of hell he's been to, And the one that he's stuck in..." The second verse is what does it, I used to be that kid... pipes, needles, you name it. If it wasn't for Islam, I think I'd have killed myself by now. Lupe's music and a few other's as well really helped me get over that phase.

Words I Never Said - cos Never Said Words are Never and LF Just Said Those Words and took them from the Never Said Words and made them into Said Words and I have no choice but to give my vote to the Words I [Never] Said track and say what must be Said

Put you on game because I love his word play it is ingenious

Words I Never said is the best song by Lupe. It is the best because it points the wrongs of the government. It is about how the government silences who ever tries to speak out against it. The music video is amazing too

My favourite song is also Till I get there, because the liveliness always set fire to me :D

"Hip-Hop Saved My Life" - Aside from the great story behind the making of song, the lyrics tell a great story in itself. Not enough rappers these days can get a message and a story across like Lupe did in this song. Even if the lyrics themselves don't directly relate to situations in my life, I still use this song as motivation time and time again. Normally it is difficult to think of just 1 favorite song from one of your favorite artists, but "Hip-Hop Saved My Life" has, and always will, stand out for me.

The Instrumental is one of my favorites from lupe. It's a perfect example of how lupe has deeper meanings imbedded in his music. Beautiful lasers is also a favorite. It's just pure genius, another song that makes you think like all of his songs.

My favorite Lupe Fiasco song is "Words I Never Said" because it raised my awareness of the world's current events and it suggested that people should speak up and stand up for themselves.
