Beautiful Lasers is my favorite song because I'm going through struggles right now I can relate to the song alot and everytime I hear the song I always remember, LOVE ALWAYS SHINES EVERYTIME REMEMBER 2 SMILE. Not only does that song get me through my struggles, but Lupe Fiasco does as well thats why he's my favorite rapper..

"Little Weapon" Because it teaches the ignorant people out there that there are horrible things happening in our world and inspire them to speak up and stop it. My favorite The cool is the best :)

"Words I Never Said" Because It Sends A Message To Everyone About Whats Going On In Our Government & Other Parts Of The World Including The War & We Should Know About These Things & Pushes People To Help Stop It If They Can I Really Like It, Its Very Good.

Hi-Definition is definitely a favorite of mine. The Cool album is great but that song is at the top. From Lasers I'm liking All Black Everything!

It's impossible to pick just one favorite Lupe song. In terms of Lasers, "Beautiful Lasers" has been most inspiring. The song has helped me get through a rough time and I have been workin on an illustrated version of the lyrics as a mini-book. Lupe is the realest.

Hard, but I'm gonna have to go with Fighters. Why? I feel like Lupe is tryna inspire us to do what we want. To do what we're capable of. We just need to stop limiting ourselves. And he shows that he empathizes. But Lupe did it. So we can too. Not only this, he's telling the other people in the game that it's more than the stereotypical topics that rappers choose to rap about. Do I rap? No, haha. But I can (and do) listen to this everyday feeling inspired. But I gotta say Miarichelleg, I feel the same way when I listen to Paris, Tokyo!!

"The Show Goes On" Because this song, hands down is the best song i have ever heard and tells you basically you can preserve through anything if you put your heart into to it.

Superstar -- the song that first got me into lupe.

"Dumb it Down" is unreal. Only Lupe would be able to pull this off. Don't dumb it down Lupe come hard and smart for Food and Liquor 2. There is no one in the rap game like you and no one is even close to your intelligence. Can't wait for it F&L2.

I want soooo bad! Lupe Fiaso is up there with my people who inspire me. My favorite song is Words I Never Said because it's raw and real. Lupe is the best rapper I have heard in my entire life. This song has a great beat and an amazing meaning in the lyrics. I showed this song to my family and they loved it! Wow, if I could get an autographed picture of Lupe that would probably make my life. :O

"The Show Goes On" - definately not my only favorite, but as a teacher on the westside of Chicago... I wish more people believed in these kids! ***Five in the air for the teachers not scared To tell those kids that's livin' in the ghetto That the niggas holdin' back that the world is theirs

ALL BLACK EVERYTHING. I love this song because everytime I listen to it, I close my eyes and I imagine the utopian society that Lupe was talking about in his fantasy. A very beautiful song. Can't wait till Food and Liquor 2. I'm A Laser, not a Loser

"The Cool" off of F&L. It embodies Lu's creativity and ingenuity. No other rapper is that damn creative. Where do you come up with something like that? And then you make a WHOLE ALBUM based on that ONE song?! DOPE. #Lasers for life.

Gotta love the musical setup to Letting Go [Ft. Sarah Green]. The verses show that Lupe is a master at flow and content, the varying synthetic tones satisfy several music cravings that many of us have had for a long time, and the chorus is amazingly chilling, if not spiritual. Tie it all together with the soulful crooning of a longtime FNF member and you got yourself a masterpiece full of WIN.

I love all of your songs, but since I gotta choose just one I choose Beautiful Lasers. I chose it because it's honest, heartfelt and powerful. And I can really relate to it, lately. LASERS! F&F UP! LUPEND!

Seriously. There are too many Lupe songs for anyone to just choose one. But in my opinion my favorite Lupe track would have to be Paris, Tokyo. Thatd be because one: I know all of the lyrics. And two: because when I listen to the song and to the lyrics, as lame as it may be, I feel as if Lupe's talking to me. As if Lupe's telling me that I'm his girl and that although we are apart everything will be okay and he's awaiting his homecoming to see me

Tough to say, but I'd pick "Daydreamin" off F&L. The instrumental is absolutely beautiful with the violins, chimes and symbols crashing. Jill Scott & company's vocals on the chorus take me to another level. Carrera Lu's lyrics paint an beautifully eerie portrait of "all the world's ills." The combination of such a gorgeous sound with the story telling make me want to hate everything Lu refers to and love it all at the same time. He very accurately makes me recognize the struggle people go through in choosing between "food" and "liquor" in the day-to-day. Funny thing is... this track feels equally appropriate on any of his three albums; it's got the darkness and imagery of The Cool and the thought-provoking punch of LASERS which just goes to show that it's a classic among classics.

1. His metaphors actually come true 2. Chilly Chill isn't in jail, he is actually trapped behind the bars Lupe spits 3. Before he records a song he turns on his Go Go Gadget Flow 4. He lives in Paris, Tokyo 5. The delay for Lasers wasn't over his beef with Atlantic, the executives were still figuring out The Cool 6. Kick, Push was played during the birth of someone's child. The delivery took 4 minutes. Flat. 7. Since The Show Goes On first played....it hasn't stopped. 8. We still hear the words he never said 9. He knows the answer to “where forth has my glory gone?” 10. He gets paid for his freestyles 11. All his albums have parental warnings, but they all simply say “Super Lupe Lyrical” 12. Lupe failed English in high school. This is known as the funniest joke known to man. 13. None of his puns are intended. He is just that awesome 14. Don't bother playing hide and seek with him because love always shines. That's how he'll find you. 15. Lupe can make “orange” and “purple” rhyme....together 16. Dylan says the best rapper ever is Lupe 17. Lupe could even do punk rock songs...oh wait that one's actually true

I just flew from Oregon to New Orleans to see your show at Jazz Fest ~ Loved the show and the short political speech ~ Favorite song would be State Run Radio simply because it is true ~ Hopefully people will start to wake up.

Now lupe why you gonna ask a question like that? Its such a difficult question; "Sunshine", "Kick Push", "Hello/Goodbye", "Fighters" they are all so good. However I do believe the song that has had the most influence to the world and the song that will hopefully change peoples views on things going on, the song I respect you most for, is "Words I Never Said" because you said things that no one has had the nerve. To step up and say. Mad respect for you creating that song.

"Coming From Where I'm From" from the first Fahrenheit 1/15 mixtape is one of my favorite songs of all-time. The third verse explains it all: "But its beautiful here It's nothing like the feeling when you do it from here You aint have to move a pack, you aint have to shoot a gat And you still took your momma and you moved her from here You aint dropped out and you figure the world out Can survive bout' anywhere learned how to do it in here " I don't think you have to be from the hood to know the feeling of pride and success that Lupe's talking about in this verse. Now that I'm in college these words remind me of why I'm working hard everyday. I'm trying to make life better for my family and I'm trying to do it the honest way.

Kick Push 1 and 2. Its like listening to a poet tell a story, i can see everything that is happening. I can vibe out to those two all day everyday.

One in the air for the people ain't here, Two in the air for the father that's there, Three in the air for the kids in the ghetto, Four for the kids that don't wanna be there, None for the niggas tryna hold them back, Five in the air for the teachers not scared to tell those kids that's livin' in the ghetto that the niggas holdin' back that the world is theirs

Today it's 'Coming Up' because it so empowering, especially to young girls the lyric 'not trying to make you hard to respect but really really hard to impress!' is what resonated with me. A young girls first hero should be her father and he should set the standard as to what a man is. These days any male seems to be able to put a 'bug' in a young girls head because they've never been validated by the right source

Daydreamin'... after seeing Lupe live for the first time at Webster Hall... this song was easily the craziest one out of the set. Maybe its the lights, maybe its the energy during this particular song, but the shit was crazy
