Wow, so many comments. It's good to see that Lupe has so many fans :) As I'm from Poland I don't think there's a chance I'll get a poster, but I'll tell you my favourite song anyway :p It's He say She say. .... Why? .... hmmm, I guess it's becaue I can relate to the lyrics. It touches me every time I listen to it. Hope the girl who wrote the previous comment will get the poster, And He Gets The Girl is my second favourite. Good luck! :)

My favorite song is .......And He Gets The Girl why? Because me and my boyfirend are sophmores @ Simeon Highschool in Chicago and we both love love love Lupe. He is our connection in every aspect of our relationship. Im Lupe when he sings about being nervous. First time i talked to Kyle (my boyfriend) I brought up how I play Saxophone in the school band and I felt so dumb just like upe said he did. Im more of a laid back girl and Kyle is a hooper. Turns out he saw me play when I did a solo peice in a recital at the school. He said how he loves Lupe and so did I. Just everything in that song was so real I feel like Lupe wrote it just for us. I doubt I will win but if I do I would love to give this as a present to him. No matter what happens we will both love LUpe until we DIE ( we wore our matching Lupe Shirts on Lupe's birthday) and Lupe because of you we"re struggling surviving and we gone persevere.

I've got a lot of favorites but right now I'm loving Mean and Vicious. It's a fun song to listen to as Lupe's flow seems effortless on the track. When he's at his best, his metaphors and rhyme schemes are intricate, taking me a few trips through the song before I can fully understand what he's saying and he does all that beautifully here. The "leaking barrel of black powder" metaphor is creative and vibrant in its description. Despite him saying so, he seemed to have almost no trouble with that second verse. Also incredibly creative and fitting. The end of the third verse brings it full circle back to the first all the while he reps Chi-town in the chorus. Love it.

My favorite songs are: The Coolest, because it speaks the truth about the yang to men's yin. The Instrumental, because it ambiguously speaks the truth about society and every single person on this planet - you're hypnotized, the answers are internal, not external. Break freeeeee... Till I Get There/Beautiful Lasers, because I needed them to accept the truth. Doubt is the poison of the mind and can be difficult to overcome. He Say She Say, because we're all living in a world with "no positive male role model..." for now. Hurt Me Soul, because saying "golly, God guard me from the unGodly," protects from negative energy. I'm Beaming, because we all need to awaken our inner G. It's almost curfew... Gold Watch, because the chorus awakened me to what I already knew inside. It helped shed light on the Eve. ;) Plus I agree that Blanca is no joke. Hip Hop Saved My Life, because Lu/Mu's words saved my life, by God's will of course. I'd like to return the favor. Muhammad Walks, because Muhammad shouldn't have to walk alone. The answer IS A co-pilot.

"Go Go Gadget Flow" is the best Lupe Fiasco song. Why? Because it's bad ass and I too am a little too short to dunk so I don't.

My favorite Lupe Fiasco song is "The Show Goes On". The reason that this is my favorite song is because this particular song helped me get through my last year of High School. Out of all the up and down days that I had, this song helped me get through those days. For example, when I start having memories of when my granddad died, and i listened to "The Show Goes On". The song soon helped me realize that even though he passed away, he would still want me to continue to live my life to the fullest and be successful. This is the most inpirational song ever created and thank you for this song Lupe Fiasco. I will always remember these words from this song: "So no matter what you been through no matter what you into no matter what you see when you look outside your window brown grass or green grass picket fence or barbed wire Never ever put them down you just lift your arms higher raise em till' your arms tired Let em' know you're their That you struggling and surviving' that you gonna persevere Yeah, ain't nobody leaving, no body going' home even if they turn the lights out The SHOW IS GOING ON!" Thanks once again for those inspirational words Lupe!

My favorite song is Paris, Tokyo because it is a love song within a rap song. A feat not many rappers can accomplish. That's why Lupe is definitely a Top 5 rapper, and my favorite! Lupe also ALWAYS keeps it real which is another amazing skill to have seeing there are many idiotic un-lyrical rappers today.

Dumb it Down because it truly speaks on how the new wave of rappers have to make their music so simplistic and not relay the more important and inspirational message about life. Very good song. Changed my look on music.

American Terrorist is my favorite because it is a total assault on the history of American abuse and misuse of the people that built this country as well as brings up the way America skews things to get what it wants. Point in case, "camouflaged Torahs, Bibles and glorious Qu'rans, the books that take you to heaven and let you meet the Lord there have become misinterpreted, reasons for warfare reread 'em with blind eyes I guarantee you there's more there" This is the perfect example of how America twisted the teachings of Islam to fuel propaganda for a completely heinous war that has only killed innocent people and led to the celebration of a death, something else that is utterly messed up about American culture.

Too many to choose from but each with a different meaning. So ill pick four of my top favorites My first comes from food and liquor "kick push part II" reason being when this album came out and I heard this song I was going through many problems in life just by listening this song kept me motivated to not give up to keep kicking and pushing in life and not look back to the darkness I've been through. Second will be from his third album Lasers "words I never said" not only does he talk about politics, bullies, segregation, but he also gives out a hidden message to stand up for what's right to not hold back what needs to be said and not to be scared to say so. Third will be from Lasers again "Beautiful Lasers" when I went to his concert on April 2011 in mesa az he mentioned he was in a dark stage and turned something negative into something positive. Which gave me flashbacks of my life and how I turned it from negative to positive. It was inspiring to me and every word he said hit me in a good way to not give up. Fourth will be from The Cool "Hip hop saved my life" I see the message that he gives out to every listener but for me its beyond that. I will have to say lupe fiasco saved my life. Through each song staying true to hip hop and touching peoples lives making inspiring music. It has changed my life. And i know he changed other lives as well with his music. Thank you Lupe. Always a Laser D. Alex C.

Gotta go back to Food & Liquor for this one. Kick, Push II was the best. It described the struggles that so many of us go through to survive and become the best. It speaks truth to a level that only Lupe can convey. It is my favorite, and will be forever!

It's pretty much impossible to choose ONE favorite track from Lupe... so I'll narrow it down to his latest album. "I Don't Wanna Care Right Now" has just the right flow to get you movin', best effects running at the right points.. Pure bliss. Lupe's always got exactly what you need, never holds back. So damn 'smoove'. (smooth) :) Sexy as hell. Would love to see him live again.

Too many to pick from but I like his songs that speak out to political issues. Streets on Fire is a great song, Gold Watch, Dumb it Down. My favorite Lupe songs come from mix tapes like Switch, Lupe tha gorrilla, enemy of the state.....I can go on and on. Thank you Lupe for actually rapping about stuff people care about. From one intellect to another.

my favorite lupe fiasco song has to be streets on fire. I love how he addresses the AIDS epidemic and how istead of trying to figure out how to stop it, the world decideds to point the finger at each other. this kind of thing STILL happens everyday.

I think I'm going to have to go with Cold World, because it keeps me humble. Whenever I'm feeling good and even sometimes a bit cocky I see this song and it brings me back down, makes me remember all the evil in the world and how much there is to work for, how much there is to change.

Favorite song... Can i pick two? 1. Words I Never Said and 2. Superstar, because 1. There are so many moments in my life where i couldve changed what i have said with what i shouldve said. There are also many times where i wish i could just go back in time and say something when it couldve meant the most to someone. This song represents all that and it adds an awesome beat to it as well. 2. This song keeps me going in sports i play. I keep telling myself that i am a superstar and the songs represents the proving grounds of it.
