Words I Never Said. Makes me realize that I need to speak out about what I believe is the right thing!

Hip Hop Saved My Life Live. I love hearing that song live. The energy, the content, and the crowd participation will keep me coming to see Lupe live for ages.

It's seriously hard to dumb down and pick one Lupe Fiasco song as my favourite but I'm going to pick All Black Everything even though I fully rock with n love "Dedicated", "All Black Everything" is a song that captures the mood and the attention of someone who is socially aware when I first heard the song I loved it straight away. People say that there is no cure to racism this song is a cure. After all -We stayed in Africa. -We ain't never leave. -There was no slaves in our history. -No slave ships no Misery. & I know it's just a fantasy I cordially invite you to ask why can't it be?

i would have to say '2 ways' is my favourite song. the lyrics are just so meaningful and inspiring. the line i like most is 'i cant win if its me agaisnt me, one of us aint gonna survive'. however i wish he put the version he performs live on his album, it sounds much better with out all the sound effects and the autotune and allows lupe to express the raw emotion of the song. :)

Too many to just choose just one song.... but for the sake of a chance to win a signed Lupe poster I'll go with "The Coolest".Reason: ~If the rain stops and everything's dry, she would cry just to so I can drink the tears from her eyes....~

I have to say my favorite song was "American Terrorist" until I heard "Words I Never Said." For an artist who gets mainstream exposure and recognition, I feel it is great that you are getting these political and social awareness messages across in your music. In these songs, especially "Words I Never Said," you say everything I've been thinking and wish I could say to a large audience. The war on terror is a bunch of bullshit. Our education system is garbage because an educated public is a threat to the status quo. Mainstream media, the 4th branch of the government, is a joke. The banking system is crooked to keep us debt, and ultimately enslaved. Obama is a puppet and it don't matter who gets elected, democrat or republican, nothing will get fixed. Although these are just symptoms of the real problem that plagues our society, it's important that you point these things out in your music to raise awareness so that hopefully one day we can work towards a more sustainable and peaceful future for everyone on this planet. You speak the truth and you represent the real people who really know what's going on around us. For that, we thank you..

My favorite song by Lupe Fiasco would have to be The Show Goes on, because of its very catchy beat and lyrics that represent something, rather than random lyrics like some other singer/songwriters out there. it sends out a good message while also being very easy to listen to

My favourite Lupe Fiasco song is Coming Up feat MDMA, the lyrics are powerful and I have not heard such an addicting and inspiring beat in so long. His voice is like marshmallow dipped in hot chocolate, it just melts your heart away. I listen to this song multiple times every day of the week because it makes me happy and being happy on any given day is an achievement especially with the world we live in. I like his rhymes and the context in which he evokes emotion. MDMA's voice is especially well done and the producer/engineers should be very proud of the record they have produced. This song is a hit and I am glad that I have all the respect for it before it goes global. "In this world you are never really on your own" - Lupe has it down pat and I think that this is his best album to date. I enjoy listening to every song on the album Lasers and for that to happen in this world with music is incredible. So many albums have songs that you don't mix with, I cannot find one on this album that I don't like or listen to. Coming up is the epitome of creativity and innovation of music at its best. In life your future can be bright or dark and Lupe seems to cover all aspects of life in such a short time span of 56 minutes and 9 seconds, that being the total length of his album 'Lasers' altogether. 'Coming up' takes 3 minutes and 58 seconds out of that total. His 3 minute and 58 second song achieves what all musicians hope to achieve and that is to gather the success and support from the audience members for a particular song and album. I have been hooked since the album was released. Coming Up is like whipped cream to the fresh strawberries coated in chocolate, pure bliss

All time favorite song is And He Gets The Girl. It's always been my theme song the past few years ever since I heard it, since I never was the popular kid around that hung out with the football players. I'm not bad looking or anything, I just was shy and quiet and sat around. But I always chased this one girl who was the girl of my dreams, who finally gave me a chance.... Lupe been a part of my life, he's my inspiration for life.

My favorite song is "All Black Everything" because it makes me think about how my life would be if everything was different, would I even exist? Would there be a genre called rap or hip hop? Would we have all the leaders that we have now if there was nothing to lead us against?

It's extremely hard to pick just one, overall I'd have pick Dumb It Down. The reason I chose this song is because of its lyrical contest as it describes the music industry.

Many boys use the excuse of "love" to manipulate a woman into thinking that they are pursuing them for the right intentions. A vast majority abuse this, except for my ex boyfriend. When he told me I was his sunshine, his moonlight, and the starry skies above him, he meant it. We ended our relationship two and a half years ago, but he continues to prove that the night he dedicated "Sunshine" to me, that it was sincere. "Sunshine" is a reminder that good exists and not all the evils that are prevalent in Lupe's songs such as "Words I Never Said" and "Dumb It Down" are not dominating. "Sunshine" will always warm my heart and bring a grin upon my face.

Favorite song: 'Words I Never Said' Why?: I agree with the lyrics. I remember Lupe saying it's highly controversial and when it premiered Feb. 1st I got goosebumps when I heard it. I hate the war on terror, I hate how the US media glamorizes negativity, feeds it's viewers lies and covers unnecessary celebrity fluff. I feel our education system needs help. I feel Islam is misunderstood. I hate giant corporations and banks who care only about profits and satisfying their shareholders. The video for the song is awesome as well, probably my favorite video of Lupe's songs. I also like how Lupe made this song as a dedication to his fans protesting for the release of this album.

My favorite has to be American Terrorist. Straight up pure thought and soul, Lu spits everything and carries a certain emotion thats not really felt in a lot of music anymore. So 1 for the message, 2 for the flow, and 3 for the depth.

My favorite Lupe song would be Daydreamin'. It's off my favorite album of Lupe's which is F&L. It has a great message behind it. I can keep it on repeat all day long. Once I heard Daydreamin' I was hooked. Love you Lu!! And thanks for the opportunity to win a signed poster - best contest ever!!! We are all beautiful lasers

Out off all the songs Lupe has done. My favorite one out of all of them was "Could of been" of his mix tape "Before There Were Lasers" I picked that song because every time I listen to I think about where I could be if it wasn't for the grace of God. This song also makes me think about my friends and what they doing with they life right now since they dropped out of school or didn't even go to college. It helps me stay on track and stay focus on what I'm doing and to never stop because I rather be where I'm on my way to success at now then anywhere else doing below average things and not looking forward to anything.

My favorite Lupe song is Sunshine off Food & Liquor, the reason why i like it is the lyrics

It's extremely hard to pick just one, overall I'd have pick Hurt Me Soul because it's so damn good, laid back sounding but great lyrics. Little Weapon, He say She Say, and All Black Everything are pretty close though

My Favorite Lupe song is "Put You On Game" hands down! It is shows lupe's lyrical prowess at its best and singlehandedly defines the rap game in 3 minutes of greatness!

Off of the L.A.S.E.R.S. album, I'm in love with "Coming Up". It makes me feel like a classic Cali song. So carefree. 'you aint never gotta worry about nothing'. Pure Blissssssss.

I want to say Mean & Vicious because that was the first song by you I had ever listened the beat at the start got me thinking the song was rockin' and then it dropped oh the first verse how awesome can a song get loved your music ever since (that was about a year ago). The one song that I feel most connected to you is Hurt Me Soul the chours doesn't do much for me but I love it still. The line that hits me hardest is probably the very beginning "Now I ain't trying to be the greatest I used to hate Hip-Hop because the women degraded" I also used to hate Hip-Hop I never thought modern music took any skill I listened to pretty much everything except Punk, Heavy Metal, and Pop. When I first heard my friend rapping My Name Is by Eminem I changed for the good Hip-Hop was and still is everything in my life no matter what happens out there I know I can put on my rap albums and relate to people like you and many other talented artists (Key Word: talented eg. Eminem, NWA, Nas, Jay-Z and You Lu) I know this is a random pick and all so good luck to everyone else Peace & Much Love To Ya

It's really hard to choose just one. I like all of his song but if I had to pick one it would have to be kick, push. The beat is so clean, I could keep the song on repeat all day and never get bored of it. His flow is sick. I relate to the song because I used to skate and a lot of the things he says in the song I did myself. It's also the first song I heard by him. :) I hope that I win(crosses fingers)
