Lupe Fiasco - Jedi Mind Tricks from Da Exam b/c its a short song but one of the most powerful songs Lupe has.

Kick, Push 2 because I enjoy the spin he puts on the story compared to Kick, Push. I also really like Go To Sleep, The Emperor's Soundtrack, and Dumb it Down

Hip Hop Saved My Life, because hip hop as a music and an art form dragged me out of some deep, dark holes, and I'm a better man for it. I love the story the song tells, and the way the music has no limits and no borders. Redemption is real, just gotta find the right beat for it to play on.

I Don't Wanna Care Right Now because I love the flow and lyrics and at the first concert I ever went to Lupe performed it twice and went nuts while doing so.

I'm going to go with "All Black Everything." The sample it uses is crazy, the beat is sick, and the lyrics are on point. The imagery Lupe uses to describe what the world would have been like if slaves would were paid for their labor is amazing. Definitely my favorite song.

Dumb it down. Wish everyone in the buisness felt the same way. Difference between someone who wants to be be known for the fame and money and someone wants to be known for how talented they are.

My favorite song by Lupe has to be Hurt Me Soul. The lyrics are amazing, they really show what Lu is all about. "All the world's ills sittin on chrome twenty four inch wheels". All of his songs are amazing and inspiring. Keep it up Lupe!

My fave Lupe song is Hurt Me Soul. That song is the definition of Real. "I used to hate hip hop, yup, because the women degraded But too short made me laugh, like a hypocrite I played it"

There are countless Lupe Fiasco songs that surpass any other rapper's songs by far. One of my favorites that still gives me the chills to this day is Dumb It Down. To me, this song represents everything Lupe Fiasco and his music means to me. The reason why I listen to Lupe on a daily basis, more than any other artist, is that he doesn't dumb down for anyone. He talks about important issues, about growing up, about life itself. He sends an amazing and powerful message through his music. These are the things I can relate to, and even better, his wordplay is mind-blowing! Dumb It Down is truly one of Lupe's best songs, if not the best. And the video is great too!

THE EMPORERS SOUNDTRACK ONLY BECAUSE ITS SO EPIC AND IS A DISPLAY OF LUPES GREATNESS AS A LYRICIST

I'll have to choose "I'm Beamin" because I love the rhythm and I can relate to it.

I dont know where to even begin aha but ill try keep it short. "Intruder alert" got to me in so many ways because I have been dealing with monsters inside of me, where I didnt trust no one and kept everything to my self and sometimes I would do drugs and drink or even hurt my self because I felt like no one understood me, feeling alone so I thought pain was my answer. But when I heard this song it made me think that maybe there is people I can trust, someone i can talk to and not make my walls so high. I love Lupe Fiasco because he is all about being positive and to never give up! So its hard to pick one song because "The show goes on" helps me to be a better me, its what keeps me going you know. But at the end of the day its "Intruder alert" cause it helped me out so much and I can relate to it so much.Lupe will and always be my #1 artist, its his music that gets me through the day. Love Always Shines Everytime Remember 2 Smile.

'He Say, She Say'--It's my favorite song because after listening to this song I knew that I would be a Lupe fan for life! Other than a 2pac song, I never have teared up over song like I did the first time I heard it. I love how he gave three perspectives the little boy, his mother and his dead-beat father. It was the beginning of the Michael 'Young' History trilogy...Which is arguably the best rap stories that has ever been told!

It'd have to be Break the Chain. It is so inspiring and catchy. Only you, Lupe, are able to mix inspirational non-conformity messages with amazing good quality music.

I love Hurt Me Soul, the lyrics are amazing and the flow is incredible over some excellent production!

Glory, off of Fahrenheit 1/15 Part II: Revenge of the Nerds. I've been following Lupe since 04 and the first time that I heard Glory it brought tears to my eyes, I almost broke down. I was going through a really rough time in my life and that song helped me through it. Not only did it help me through it but it inspired me to become a better person. It made me decide to be a more active human being. It made me drop listening to ear candy and develop a taste for food for thought. It made me open my eyes and realize that we are in a simulated reality controlled by our government. Any time I'm feeling down I listen to that song and it brings me right back up to myself. It still remains my favorite song to this day. I made countless friends sit down and listen to it while reading the lyrics in hopes that they would feel the same way as me. Through all of it though, it helped me realize that when you are intelligent and enlightened that all you want to do is spread that same feeling of peace, love, & understanding, but sadly, you can show people water, but can't make them drink it. It even inspired me to become an artist myself, and I know one day Lu and I will work together, but until that day...I'm going to respect the position I play, never letting my heart reflect the conditions in which I stay.

Kick Push. Song is a classic, I love Lupe's storytelling through rhyme. I love the message

My favorite Lupe song recently has to be Words I never Said, before it hit the mainstream, I listened to it and couldn't believe the message Lupe was putting out. Yeah it all his opinion, and some of it may not be right, but it gets you to think. He gives everyone the message that you have to speak your mind or else you are just a follower in society and allow everyone in power to take advantage of you. Speak up because you will regret the words you never said. Also, the beat alone is amazing, just blows you away and engulfs you into the song.

Favorite Lupe song? That's easy, it's a tie.....between all of them. Picking one out is too hard, I just love that Lu's entire body of work has a central theme and that he STICKS TO IT! We don't need lifestyle songs, not if they're about Ferraris and weed smoking. The risks that Lupe takes when releasing his albums are enormous, because he could honestly be harmed for the things he says. That is what has given me the greatest respect for him as an artist, his undying courage and true motivation. Peace and much love to ya.

I have to choose "Words I Never Said". The lyrics are powerful and it describes the crisis the world is going through right now. It's an eye opener. The song delivers a big uppercut. Its outstanding, beautiful, and genius. Words i Never Said is truly One of my favorite songs of all time. Its an instant classic. Lasers here we go. Lupe your my Hero!

I would have to pick The Instrumental because that was the song that first got me interested into the world of Lupe Fiasco. I love the flow of the rhymes, rock beat and most definitely the story and messages behind the song. Plus the song is off of Food and Liquor; still my favorite album even though its hard to not say all of them are.

All of Lupe's songs are my favorite. But the one I would choose for this would be a throwback song called, "Mohammad Walks." I picked this song because I am a young Muslim Palestinian women. I feel like this song really hits the good spots of the Islamic religion. It shines on the positives of the religion, and gives people the chance to open their mind. Which I feel is what all of Lupe's songs are about!

My favorite song by Lupe from Lasers (cause all his music is amazing & it's hard to choose) is Words I Never Said because it speaks nothing but the effing truth. Love You Lupe & keep doing your thing. L.A.S.E.R.S
