Though, i didn't personally like it myself, simply because i'm not that into hip-hop anymore, though i don't really remember being crazy for hip-hop... hm. Anyway, i just didn't like people saying, the flow is whack. it irked me.

i mean.... it wasnt lupe's great stuff to our expectations, because we know what hes capable of. but he "dumbed this down" a little bit for those who dont get lupe. He used a mainstream beat and "whack" flow to catch people's attention. He's not falling off, this was all for a reason.

"Still better then most artists / 90% of artists out there" Such a tired argument. Anyone with even a decent amount of skill is better then "most artists 'out there'" Now if the argument was "His worst stuff is still on par or better then most other top rappers" then I could see. Or even "Out of his prime he's still making great music". Unfortunately it's not.

just because someone raps about something conscious to life, thats not about drugs, girls, money or nothing.....doesnt mean its good. this wasn't really that nice....ESPECIALLY for lupe. If this is what you guys want and expect for lupe you guys really have low standards for him, and don't realize his potential.

Lupe believes he has his fans on lock so he's doing LASERS and that punk rock shit to get people outside his fans to listen to what he has to say (lasers manifesto). Don't worry when The Great American Rap Album drops it'll live up to it's name it wouldn't be just to name an album that and have it suck.

Hell, most decent artists "prime" doesn't last for only a year or 2 lol.
nIANja909's picture

Yeh well most decent artists can still make quality music even out of their "prime".

only lu can take a mainstream beat and make it educational

btw, everyone should stop with the pseudo-intellectual crap. Because thinking this song is super deep (or the lyrics) doesn't make you intellectual. The lyrics in this song are just as mediocre as his flow. And isn't this the same guy who made "Dumb It Down" lol?

You're either gonna make the best music you can make, or you're going to half ass your s*** (whether it be for sells, or be to market to a certain crowd, in this case you guys think it's 'the idiots'). "the idiotz getting smartur" is not my standard for music. And that seems to be all Lu is doing recently. Well I hope 'The Idiots' enjoy & buy his music... cause I certainly don't / won't.
nIANja909's picture

Right, because now the point of making music is to appeal to the "idiot" crowd...

You're all pathetic. Tha's right, i said it. You're about as stupid as beiber fans. We all know Lupe has better flow than this. So you need to ask yourself WHY he was using this flow. What reason was behind it? He wanted idiots, to hear the easy to understand flow, and hear the meaningful lyruics behind it. all commenitng 'fuck the flow, 'the flow sucks' your inability to anyalse things sucks! Now, all argue back.

NICE LYRICS HORRENDOUS FLOW
Noa The Ruler's picture

Wow I hate when non intellectual people who think they're intellectual comment on something they know nothing about. I said the lyrics was good but his flow is not. Flow does matter lets not for get this is MUSIC now. You can be the best lyricist ever, but if you sound like crap when you say it's no good. I'll say it again the lyrics are dope, but if Lupe used is own flow I''m sure I'd be saying he killed this beat.

Wow I hate non intellectual ppl who comment on something they know nothing about. Y'all sittin here worried about his flow when the message he is trying to spread through the lyrics is goin way over y'all head. This is why hip hop is dying in the first place smh. His lyrics are dope y'all jus need to pay attention.

not that great

iight lyrics bad flow although if you listen to it several times you get use to it. Lu should have never used Rick Ross' flow. It only sounds "gangsta" when Rick does it thus the reason why it's his flow. It would have been alright if Lupe did it only in the beginning, but for the entire song no no no smh
