How long has Lupe been an Anarchist?

    In the Go-Go Gadget Flow song he said "Im at where Im at, like an A in a circle", his mixtape is called Enemy of the State, the LASERS album cover, the shirt that he was wearing that said "Only Anarchists Are Pretty", and he wears a whole lotta baphomet shit. And he hangs out with Le Messie who is clearly a devil worshipper. Thoughts?

i like that lupe speaks out on shit happening in the world. reminds me of old school hip hope like public enemy. also like that he's been involved in the occupy wall street stuff. here's a fan video made for one of the tracks on friend of the people using the end of the world track. it's dope https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0-SW5lr3wW0 http://vimeo.com/34265950 keep speaking truth lupe

Anarchism has nothing to do with "devil worshipping" or whatever. Anarchism is the politics of opposing all oppression, and wanting true democracy/a free, liberated society where everybody has access to the things they need. I am an anarchist and have been involved with anarchist organizations for many years.

Probably forever considering his dad was a Black Panther and it made him develop his own ideas, and he never votes. The lack of substance and extensive amount of speculation in many of the commented posts is down right hilarious. 1. anarchy is not antithetical to God or even practicing religion. 2. anarchy is not devil-worshipping 3. anarchy is living in a society with no hierarchy, no government, no ruler. everything is voluntary and everyone is free. obviously, that's just a simple, basic idea and there is more to it, but it's not complete chaos and violence as is often misconstrued (because the government has implanted that idea in your mind). 4. I don't understand the problem with Lupe being an anarchist. 5. I don't get how he is perceived as fake. I don't get why his manifesto is completely contrary to anarchism. "We Will Be Responsible For Our Environment." Yes, it talks about elected officials, but that's because people are going to vote (lupe doesn't vote), so there are going to be elected officials, however they must be truthful or "move aside." (when are politicians ever truthful?)

lol anarchy is not "left wing". It's not on the wing at all!!! Anarchists (like myself) want to get rid of the state completely, we don't want anything to do with it. Just like we don't want anything to do with cancer. The state is a cancer on our society. Anarchy is freedom and prosperity

Only Anarchists Are Pretty is a song by a band called The World Inferno/Friendship Society

A lot of misinformation is out there because people don't know half of what they claim to know. Anarchy is often misinterpreted as bedlam, that is, the chaotic upheaval you dudes are prolly against. Really, anarchy, at least in a political sense, is very structured and systematic.. word to Noam Chomsky. As far as the symbolism in the music, anarchy has been alive and well since the earliest incarnations of Punk.. it's counter-culture, anti-establishment, etc. etc. which Lu has been from the start. I'd rock an "Only Anarchists Are Pretty" shirt.

and yes it's a shame that those who wanna fight the system chose for the so called 'lef wing' 'communist' 'anarchy' ect.. revolution we all should rather liberate ourselves, we should not deny the materialistic needs to a certain degree and understand that there should be room for personal spiritual guidance (inner self) becouse that's whats the most hated thing right now, that why there are so many social issues and sick minded people with mental problems. There is a perception in the western world that money and material can make us happy. and most people destroy themselves while chasing this dream (that's the reason dreams only make sens if your sleeping). On their quest chasing this dream they often forget to feed themselves with inner spirituality in form of praying or meditation or reflacting out lives. Belive me anarchism does not contribute to a safer world. If everyone was anarchist we whould live in a seperate world without bonds and connections with alot of wars. for example, the manifesto states that we appearently want a world wide school system... !! isnt that NWO crap talk? if I was a anarchist I whould not attend such a schoool... die hard anachist don't go to school, I''ve even seen a documentary about old anachist who built their own society apart fromt he world autarckie village.. It was laughable, I mean anachy lost its meaning. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YIPDJ1Cc_uw (Political Systems Explained for Dummies) I LMAO @ the Anarchy part ^^

if your against masonry, then you should not like anarchy since it is originated from michael bukaNIN..... besides the whole freemason thing is complicated, dont expect the avarage mason to know the secrets of the craft ;) Keep in mind that it's not only the goverment destroying our society.. rather the culture creation tru media and mass control.. the goverment often is ruled by these people who have influence and sponser themselves in order to have more power ;) also power corrupts wich adds up to the whole mess,

You think Anarchy is bad. Trust me it's not. This word originated from the greek language which means "without ruler" Anarchy is liberty. Listen to the L.A.S.E.R.S. Manifesto Interlude again. In my opinion I give a thumbs up for Lupe. Besides Anarchy hates government and wants to give rid of the government. Just like Thomas Jefferson, he wanted government to be small and not have power. But that didn't happen, we have a strong government that controls. "We want to think our own thoughts" - Lupe Fiasco. Oh yeah I need help you guys. We're all aware of Freemasons and all that and this HUGE masonic symbol is right next to a elementry school. The masonic symbol with a G in the middle. I was thinking of doing some graffiti on it and to say F**K MASONS" lol Or something else. Any Thoughts?

Now I'm going to give my opinion looking at this from diffrent point of view. Lupe is trying to be this 'rebel' who doesnt follow the rules and what not, he hates the goverment (yet visits capitol hill like a hypocrit and makes a 'loasers'manifesto which contradicts the whole anarchy image) and supports cool rebel historical peoples like karl marx. To be honest this wole fake punk image is just annoying, second it's so fake that it's not even close to someone being near anarchist, he gets payed by the system 1, he gets to do what the system wants him to do 2( he wanted to quit, yet the label forced him to do extra ablums ), he encourges people to attend school and get educated by the same system he FIGHTS(HYPOCRIT ;'') read the manifesto) The manifesto contradicts his anarchist image. And his punk band lmaooooo with messi who likes to wathc movies like anticrist and such, and makes devilish desings, f.e a tatto with DAVID STAR -.-~!!! and piramid with FFF (f=6th letter aka 666 we all know some think thats devil sing) the people lupe is friends with are sick minded

What was the clan from the 70s that he was wearing?

I'm just worried about Wasalu becouse his alter ego lupe fiasco is going bananza with the stuff he expresses himself tru.... and I feel I can do the least to reach him and express the worries and dangers that are in the society he is now... he is friends with one of the biggest culture creators atm in the hiphop gengre... and I know for a fact that they are influenced by people who have bad intentions to the society. Time will tell ;) or has time allready told us? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zdrAjHMwE_w

The reverse thing is that you can't find satanic reversed messages in his song aka he did not sold his soul. 'Arteries hard but its hard to leave the bread alone,' 'I send condolences to the victims but, threats two the witnesses' this song is obviously about the perception that almost 95% has that people think that our brain energy does not effect other peoples. but, I don't care if someone belives diffrent things, im fine really but what I really hate is people who are hypocrites, talk this do this... you know what I mean?? just a lil introduction in some of hypocisy Lupe as a arist has.. lets look at the song p.y.o.g 'And in return, the have become my martyrs, I've been in the poem of many a poet, And I reside in the art of many a artist' so here he basicly says that many poets and artist are actually influenced by the devil... at the same time he praised alot of those artist... that just plain hyrpocrit since he is into fashion (wich is runned by gays, who we all know have this sexual orientation becouse of the influence of the devil. ) i mean common people. I won't even go further about the stuff hes wearing now and then... like a month ago he wore a tshirt with the logo of a murderous clan from back in the 70's who were totaly crazy and killled innocent people., and there is not explantion why one whould support karl marx.... if you study some about this man you dont need much brains to conclude that this man is sick and his followers even sicker.... and lupe even wears a TSHIRT with his head on wtf... cmon any correction welcome ;) 'Far from me from claiming to know the relationship between man and God or how he practices his faith' I never claimed I know that, but I do see certain things.... and belive me I've cheked 100 sources and I've read alot about lupe and so on, I know lupe from way back, the thing is// hes changed, and I presume there is certain things going on.... maybe black magic on his or something... IDK

ETW, I'm not saying the song is explicitly about anarchy; just mentioning that Lupe did rap about concealing his true intentions until he gets fans on board, which is treachery whichever way you look at it. And then he backtracks a portion of the song to get you unnecessary suspicious about it, like rock stars used to do in the past, and then he uses the Nintendo and Sega references to say something about completing the Genesis. What is completing the Genesis, I ask you? Uh huh. The thing is, I think many of us are only disappointed because we believe Lupe to be devout muslim. Far from me from claiming to know the relationship between man and God or how he practices his faith, but Lupe has rapped countless rhymes and said a lot of things for me to take him seriously when it comes to faith. He is deeply ill-informed about the topic and makes very obscene references regarding God. He even said something about not making a whole Government based on Shari'ah or something which is a massive slip of the tongue that should be followed by "subhanallah," "astaghfirullah" but he didn't seem to know he said anything wrong.

and it's even a bigger shame, becouse before Hamza his father passed away, he wanted to talk to lupe, becouse he wasnt feeling him latly and he felt like lupe was not listening. He told lupe to tell the truth, and I know for a fact that anarchism is not the truth he was speaking about ;) [Source: ''Last time Jaco and I talked, he was complaining that he was not speaking to Wasalu. Signature Jaco. Wasalu was obviously trying to get Jaco to do something Jaco did not want to do. ''] http://johnkeehan.blogspot.com/2007/02/my-first-sensei-gregory-jaco.html

they say the biggest trick of the devil is to make people belive he does not exist ;) atleast from islamic perspective devil has alot of influence tru musical instruments. from what I've heard out of his mouth, lupe's mom is a gosh darn near anarchist or something like that lmao, I don't why one whould be proud to be a anarchist WTF, if you only study the roots of it you will find some dirty shit. He even wears a shirt with karl marx, lmao hes not even the creator of anarchism and was considered being a rival to bukaNin who was a freemason and a creator of ideas of anarchism to give you an inpression why I noted that he was a freemason (just like karl marx ), the first presidents of America we're freemasons ;) the creation of evil, america as a country killed millions, and communism killed thousands Karl Marx gave basis for the idea that one should not have a relligion, that why our muslim brothers in west china have a big stuggle and being killed if they are muslims. How can lupe be a self thinking person wearing a karl marx t-shirt? serious disrespectfull to all those killed by communism for their religious background or if they proclaimed that they belive in god in general. therefor we can say lupe is a hypocrit and I don't take him serious anymore. I could write anohter essay about lupe doing some major bad things, but I don't want to, becouse this will not even reach him. @Aradi, lol that's my favourite lupe song and it's not anarchist limited

I can't believe people believe in this, "Rappers worship the devil", it's nonsense. I don't get what the Im at where Im at, like an A in a circle", has anyhting to do with the subject. I thinks he is saying the symbol @....... Please nobody respond to this thread after me, he just wants a bunch of people arguing over this.

I'd say, right from the start.. "They try to censor the influencer Makes me sicker; Influenza. I'll abide by the censorship. Soon as they ride I'll get back on my nigga shit. Can't reverse all this (a bit of the song back-tracked, I think) The boy game advanced Completes the genesis I break bread with societies menaces.." Jedi Mind Tricks.
