Lupe is better, but in my opinion Wale is the only other rapper out right now that can be compared(lyrically) with Lupe.

Wale is a cool rapper yet his lyrics don't go further than "I've got the right to be cocky" Lupe isn't a rapper. He's a lyricist with a message. What do you guys think of B.o.B's flow?

if you read the initial start of the discussion i said its not a matter of who vs who..clearly you're intellectually challenged. its a discussion on artists that sound like other people i just brought up that i found wale sounded like Lupe on his Attention Deficit album. hope this helps you catch up, for a person talking isht on people discussion you really ain't contributing but hey take win bro you do you.

yeh i like Wale vibe but when i saw him as the house band for that award show cant remember which one now but i was like damn hope he don't end up like an artist's cover artist cause as even said by people here he has a lill flow like Lupe, some of Kanye west and well then heck add Consequence in that mix one time lol

Wale all right. but i think the problem is he is sounding like other people that in the rap industry ( commercial mostly) are bigger then he is so he kinda comes off like he's trying to catch up to what people like lupe have beeeeeeeeeeeeen doing

I liked 100 Miles & Running the best. Everything else, meh. Except for that original Crazy track on Hate is the New Love - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mDOal3v1yZ8 He's not that similar to Lupe though..more go-go stuff you know.

Yup, Wale is from DC, Nigerian immigrant parents. I really took interest in his career since I saw the DC Chillin' track with Lady Gaga and his style appealed to me. I even downloaded and listened to his Back to the Feature mixtape in anticipation to Attention Deficit. I have to say, at first, his wordplay sounded a tad bit Lupe-like to me though, and his voice a bit like Kanye West's. I have to say Attention Deficit disappointed me. Don't get me wrong, the album is still good, but his lyricism did not live up to the anticipation I had built up. K'Naan and J.Cole "outflowed" him on their respective tracks. What's more? He even uses the same sample in Lupe's Theme Music to a Drive By (Do It, Do It). I have to say, Kid Cudi and especially Asher Roth beat him last year as my favourite hip-hop artists.
