Is Lupe or Wayne the best?

    I personally pick Lupe. I'm not a Wayne hater or anything. I believe that (at times) his lyrics can go beyond the conventional commercial subject matter (i.e. cars, money, sex) ;however, he still has no depth to his lyrics. His metaphors are all punch-lines and face value. I believe Lupe is better because he has thought provoking music while giving metaphors that are deep and poetic. Prime example: The Instrumental

"...thinkin about what tha first metaphor u said and missin the second and the third metaphor for tryin to figure out the first thats what the people want no disrespect but lupe deserves tha crown handz down..." well said. Lupe Hands DOWN. ! Wayne has nothing on him. Wayne just speaks a bunch of GARBAGE. Nothing meaningful. Nothing that is going to be remembered 10 years from now. Wayne is high all the time, so most of his metaphors is just a bunch of crap jumbled together. its meaningful. I have a feeling that in 10 years my kids will grow up listening to Lupe Fiasco.

"you clearly havent heard much of gucci, flo rida or tyga if you think lupe is the best, i suggest you check them out." You honestly cant be serious. Lil Wayne and Hannah Montana have the same audience. Lu's better hands down, Waynes good no doubt, but he still makes weak shit for the money

wadz89 your just judging lupe and lil wayne by album sales and not for the lyrical content itself so shut up listen to some good hip hop music not generic shit and go away....why are you on here if you dont like lupe the whole point in this is to show appreciation to lupe and his work

Y is this even a thread??? Lupe is by far way better then Wayne. All wayne has is punch lines and gimmicks and puts out singles just to make money. Somebody let me know when wayne drops something that is actually beyond the surface....

BOTS - 'A Millie' was the song of the decade, lupe is okay, but can't even compare to Lil Wayne. Lil Wayne even has to have drake write his stuff because the stuff that wayne is soo good and clever that the audience wouldnt understand it, so has to have drake dumb it down for him. I don't know how you can think lu is the greatest, you clearly havent heard much of gucci, flo rida or tyga if you think lupe is the best, i suggest you check them out.

Wayne is the epitome of a (mains stream) rapper @ WADZ89. He's fake, spits a bunch of nonsense, all punchlines, and he's just ignorant. Now Lupe isn't the epitome of a rapper either, he's too out of the box for that. I do believe he is the best lyricist and poet though and as such he is way better than Wayne.

Wayne all day. Lil Wayne is the epitome of a rapper.

how can you even compare lupes lyrics to that mainstream bullshit.lil waynes songs cant go as deep into knowledge as lupes cos lil wayne is a puppet he masks what real hip hop is all about, expression thats why 2pac and biggie smalls and eminem are some of the best because they speak real problems not how much shit they have

Lupe is way better than Wayne. Lupe is amazing with his flow and lyrics. I don't hate Wayne or somethin' I also like his music.. But Lupe's level is far above Waynes. Lupe is also a hottie =D, so cute!

Hah, Wayne isn't even close to the top. Use to be a lot better but now he just has a big head. He thinks anything he puts out is going to be worshipped, success is definitely killing his career.
