    Yes I know the grammar is wrong, I was just poking fun at that other discussion bout J.Cole

    Considering the discussion we (Tay and Ian...) have been having bout Lupe and emotions and personal ish. Would a Blu and Lupe collabo be legendary? you'd get the best of both worlds, I'm pretty sure I heard a Blu interview where he said he'd definately do a collab with Lu. Or do you think it just wouldnt work? styles too different?

     

    Blu + Lu = Blupe! = G.O.A.T

That's a legitimate complaint about Blu. I don't agree with it, but it is. He has an emotional honesty and structure of words when he rhymes that elevate him outside the trough of underground rap.

Blu is okay, nothing special. The fact that he is young and doesn't do the normal "mainstream" rap makes people gaga over him. Exiles production is soulful though, even thought it is a bit empty at times.

Blu produced HerFavoriteColo(u)r as well as Sene's album, plus some other random features for other dudes.

I know it's a Lupe forum, but Lupe doesn't need to be compared with any and every rapper that doesn't do dance or gangster/hardcore music. Lupe's style(and who he listens to) has largely been closer to the rappers majority of these guys claim to hate.

oh and Lu does have a generic ass flow, and delivery sucks, but cant blame him on delivery, cant help it unless he gets his voice changed, so i don't criticize him on it too much

Malik, this is a Lupe forum.... honestly it'd all depend on the production and theme of the song

Why does everyone pair every single "different" underground rapper with Lupe? Stop it. Rawkus Records is never going to be reincarnated.

Nothin like being a pessimist huh Ian Id rather they do a song/s and them not be very good, than them not do any songs at all...

merked it, brought it to life, then brutality raped and murdered it.

I understand what you mean now, I see your point, Lu does have a tendency to do that.
nIANja909's picture

A good example of Lu just killing the flow though is his guest spot on Bun B's "Swang On Em". Dude merked that track.
nIANja909's picture

I mean most of the time dude is spittin cookie cutter. See: Most of his album songs. And it's more of a generic delivery than just a generic flow. Common has one too though (But I like his overall delivery more). If you've ever heard anyone like Pharoahe Monche or Mos Def rhyme, they are switchin it up constantly. Lu sometimes sticks to this annoying a,a,a,a,b,b,b,b,c,c,c,c type rhyme scheme. Straight up amateur, Dr. Seuss status.

@ nianja what do you mean when you say Lu has a generic flow?
nIANja909's picture

Styles too different honestly. It'd be hard enough finding production both these guys would sound good over, but then you have Lu's generic ass flow mixed in with Blu's delivery, and it'd be so off. I honestly don't know if that would work unless one or both of them compromised for the sake of harmony in the track, which would then just be a disappointment from both of them. But with dope enough production, ANYTHING can sound good lol.
