MTV addresses Enemy of the State

Here's what MTV had to say about Lupe's "Enemy of the State : A Love Story" mixtape ::

Necessary Notes: "Stay outta the sun's way, like you drinking blood" — that one line says it all. Lupe Fiasco is fueled by a quest to be known as the Hottest MC in the Game. Lu may be taking awhile to craft his upcoming album L.A.S.E.R.S., but his talent doesn't take hiatus.

Enemy of the State was released on Thanksgiving Day, and obviously Lu was hungry. He jacks beats from everyone from Lil Wayne to Slaughterhouse — and even Radiohead's "Natonal Anthem" — and measures up to each and every one of them.

Although the tape is less than 30 minutes long, we're discovering a new punchline everyday. Can't-Miss Tracks: "The National Anthem," "Angels" (remix), "All the Way Turnt Up"

So he raps over some mainstream songs and suddenly MTV listens, wonder if they have heard the Fahrenheit 1/15 ones, nah didnt think so.

lol, shows how retarded MTV is if this is the piece of Lu's work they are giving attention too. Why is he trying to impress them again?
