Lupe the Emotional

  • TAY's picture

    So, a decent number of people have said that Lupe's music lacks personally emotional communication;

    And that this missing trait is what is holding him back as an artist.

     

    What do you think? Agree or disagree?

    What else do you think Lupe needs in order to rise to the next level?

    What else is holding him back?

    If you could give Lupe advice from a fan's stand point, what would you tell him?

     

    Let's talk.

Honestly, Lupe is more of a novelty rapper to me. He does stuff like metaphors & crazy references and word play well, a lot of different themes (that don't really impact me), but he raaaaarely inspires me. A few songs like "Hurt Me Soul" & 'Coming From Where Im From', even "Glory" are great. But most of his songs are just passive listening experiences for me. Like a "Oh that's dope how he did that..." and then I move on. Not a whole lot I really vibe to either. (Which for me, in music, is a Big NEGATIVE) It's "Impressive" like a building made out of lego's would be, but I wouldn't consider the architect on the level of Frank Loyd Wright or some s***.

i feel the same , but the world wants ignorant rap like "wiz khalifa" now i know lupe is genius, but how the hell is he going to pack ignorant rap into something containing truth, and if hes capable of, lupe won't do it becouse he's to affraid he will mislead stupid kids who won't understand his lyrics. like he be talking about bitches, but in fact it's about how bad it is to sell your body, and then you got the kids who don't get it walkin around trying to be a pimp and sining lupe, lol

I know, it's like... It's not like Lupe Can't be personal in his lyrics, we've all heard him do it, he just chooses the [insert_yourself_here] route much more often. Which isn't a bad thing. It'd be different if Lupe didn't fill that personal void with something though. For me, he makes up for his lack of outright emotional outcries with a superb imagination, super lyricism, consistency, and the ability to tell other people's stories. In a way, his not being so personal isn't bad at all. He can story-tell, he just doesn't tell his own story much. But yes, telling his own story, thus adding to his emotional value would in fact make him that much more of a complete rapper. I kinda feel like :: Lupe + More Personal Ventures, More Often = Greatest of All Time He's got everything else. But personal / more human lyrics are huge.

I'd prefer it if he did more songs where he like tells a story, like you get when listening to Blu. And yeah, he rarely mentions himself, and one where he does is Tilted part 3, which i really like.

yeah i love how Lupe codes what hes talking about. Me and my friends always joke about how lil wayne could make a tight simile about the color red, but lupe could show you a completley different side to the color that makes it a different color altogether. but as far as the emotion in his voice, he could do it more like he did "put you on game." Thats one of my favorite songs because he sounds like hes clinching his teeth together the whole time just like the devil (game) would sound.

Like i said earlier, Lupe knows what is going on, he can't come out with the truth cuz then you have the critics talking shit about how he's whining about what is going wrong in this world. But that's why i like lupe, he is genius at what he does, the whole concept of the cool contained a story that whould be laughed at if he didn't spit it in crypt language, he can be talking about hate and his song is really about love, if you know what i mean. Now if you want lupe to change, it whould not be lupe anymore. and if you want the more emotional lupe , hit his old mixtapes, those are the truth, it contains so much hot shit. in a way i love his mixtapes more, becouse mixtapes are the turth, now to take it to the next leven without changin himself, he can try to bring the mixtapes back into a album form, THAT WHOULD BE GREAT, songs like Muhammed walks, the personal stuff you know. His view on politicks. this is great subject btw
