I was at the Houston show at the House of Blues....Him and B.O.B rocked it. And the fact it was the day before B.O.B. album release the atmosphere was unlike anything I could put in words. LASERS....Love Always Shines Everytime...Remember 2 Smile!!!! Soul food!!!!!

That's a whack ass clique. I guess a plus is that those rappers actually rhyme... Some of Lupe's decisions are getting lame in my opinion but that's just me. He should have died on top of that mountain.

I really like Lupe, I honestly do, but does anyone else see a problem with an artist that is supposed to be counter-culture and against the grain stomping on his soap box about money? If Lupe is as revolutionary as he claims shouldn't material gains mean nothing to him? Shouldn't he embrace the pirates of the internet as the last keepers of the rebellion? I know everyone has to eat and music is the intellectual property of the artist, but Lupe is def not struggling to put food on the table. Maybe that intern who leaked, aka stole, the track didn't want to feel bigger than he was but wanted to give back to the movement that got him his gig in the first place. The dawn of electronic information has fundamentally changed traditional property notions in our society, and it's time artists take this into account rather than cry about all of their lost sales. "I don't trust America, after watching Zeitgeist," that may be true Lupe but you still love the capitalistic structure that keeps Uncle Sam's, and your, pockets fat.

I heard that! asher roth on im beamin' remix..yeah thats gonna be crazy. I havent seen Lu's whole journey since the beginning but i have been given the honour to witness his evolution since kick push up until this point and had to do some of my own research on revenge of the nerds, da pak, etc and i've seen trmendous growth , change,alot of traveling to different countries, across the nation, one time in cleve although i was never informed, smdh,lol but never once witnessed him 2 be fake or phoney...a lil commercial for the cool album but that was logical reasoning. Im happy for him and blessings to everything he touches..hes already #1 on the list, flat out!

That's not Trilly, and if it is I'm pretty sure we can't cop it. I want bolt and bones tee he had on in concert. Will save a couple checks to cop that! I still want that Varsity jacket too, all dreams just eating to come true. Just ordered the jeans via RSVP gallery. Waiting on that spring line. "Lightning gave them Life"....

After I heard he wants to bring all the how, I calle them "New Generation", rapper ... a dream would come true. I always tell my friends "Lupe needs to work with people like B.o.B, Asher Roth, Wale and so on ..." and that would bring a new revolution of rap. I got the album from them all and they bring a new vibe, soul, beat and vision to this game. If they would work together ... it would be the deadline xD FNF MUCH LOVE
