continueed....^ He say she say is a song about a kids troubles in school without his dad in his life, and hes got something missing. The first verse is in the voice of his mother, second verse is the voice of the son (both are the same verses lyrically just in different tenses.) Really dope song, love lupe always will... in his song "Dumb it Down" He said "they told me I should come down cousin, but I flatly refuse I ain't dumb down nothing " ...even though i felt like a few of the songs on LASERS was dumbed down if you listen to the verses and not some of the chorus's its still the same old lupe... GOTTA LOVEHIM

Overall I would have to say "Clean" off of Revenge of the Nerds is my favorite Lupe song. I especially dig the beats off of his old mixtapes, and nothing beats Lupe with 100% creative freedom. In college a few years ago playing beer pong against my friends, anytime that I was on a cold streak, I'd put on "Clean" and usually start playing lights out as a result. It always pumps me up and brings a smile to my face!

MY POST KEEPS CUTTING OFF SO IM GONNA POST TWICE My Favorite Lupe Song RIGHT NOW wouldnt really be a song he did but his freestyle for Tim Westwood.. H.A.M. freestyle, if you havent heard it listen to it now!!! I like this so much because i really think freestyles can show a real artists talent and skill, lupe kills the freestyle and you know it wasnt written before because he's talking about the H.A.M. beat and rapping with westwood... he's on a different intellectual level than so many rappers and H.A.M. freestyle shows how much he can think of off the top of his head and its insane.. look at some other artists freestyles on westwood for example.. lil wayne's he couldnt even put a couple lines together and he's suppose to be goood???? com' on son... So the HAM freestyle is what i like right now, but for my favorite song ever by lupe... it would probably be "He say, She say"

My favorite Lupe song is All black everything because it describes the world without race and religion not being a factor.

Either "Failure" or "Superstar." He goes absolutely insane on "Failure," throwing double and triple entendres in almost every line, all over one of the most intense beats ever. "Superstar" is a beautiful duet, with Matthew Santos' solar singing contrasting with Lupe's rhythmic rapping. "Superstar" is also the song that introduced me to Lupe and I've been a fan ever since!

It's really tough to ask lupe fans to pick one song bcuz all of his music is great and has meaning. Right now my favorite song is Go To Sleep because the beat and lyrics just go so well together. The beat is epic and different and of course when you add lupe in the lyrics are insane.

My favorite song is "National Anthem" off Enemy of the State. Lupe is my favorite rapper and Radiohead is my favorite band. Lupe + Radiohead = Pure Awesomeness

My favorite song from my favorite rapper would be All Black Everything. This song has been my favorite ever since i first heard it. He talks about how slavery changed everything and also how he said " Yea, complexions not a contest, cuz racism has no context" is my favorite line. I also love it how Lupe is for the people, not just for the fame and fortune.

Shoot, I don't how to pick just one. After looking over his music, mainly his Lasers, I would have to pick Till I Get There. It isn't the most popular song, but sometimes it's good to listen to it. It gives a feeling of hope, especially if you just be patient.

"Paris, Tokyo" - Deodato sample + Fiasco poetry + Soundtrakk production = ENOUGH SAID

Words I Never Said: The lyrics are crazy and i feel like lupe spoke his mind on this track more so than most of his music. A classic song from my favorite artist. FNF UP!!!

Out of all of your songs, Daydreamin' is definitely my favorite. I love how it goes back and forth between the soft and slow female vocals to the more fast paced rap which tells a story. It's a really cool contrast that pulls you into the song. Then at the end, it's like everything is colliding. I guess you could say it's like reality vs. daydreaming and then the colliding of the two. Inception lol? Also, there are a lot of personal memories linked to that song that surface each time I hear it. My boyfriend, Sonny, who is a die-hard Lupe fan first showed me the song when we began going out and now it's our sing along song in the car. One time on Facebook we even sent pictures back and forth portraying the story within the song. Yay [:

It's really hard to pick just one favorite. "Sunshine", "Kick Push", "Stereo sun" are a couple of them. But since I really have to choose one it has to be "Beautiful Lasers", because it reflects upon how you should look upon your life as a blessing. And also through the song, you can really get a feel on the hardships Lupe went through after his father died. How life can be hard, seem like nothingness and not worth it at all. It's basically him telling us to live life. That is why I love this track so much.

My favorite Lupe song would have to be Letting Go off of L.A.S.E.R.S. This song is so deep and moving I could listen to this song all day and i listen to it when im feeling lost or down. Definitely the best song on the album to me.

intruder alert because when you first hear it and listen to that first verse youre like ok this is a love song but when lupe starts the second he basically does a complete 360 and by the time the song is done it has you thinking like so many of your songs.

Words I Never Said. Its instrumental is sick and its storyline describes the society we have today.

My favorite Lupe song has to be "Hurt me Soul". I truly believe this is one of the best rap songs ever made. These amazing lyrics bring life to all the hurt and pain that we are surrounded with on an everyday basis in this world. It inspires me how only one song touches numerous issues such as wars, education, health care, women's self-image, rape and AIDS. Since it engages us on a personal level with other people's pain, one really gets motivated to be a positive force for good in this world. In addition to the insight in other people's life, one also becomes grateful for all the good one has in life. The insightful lyrics blended with the most emotional instrumental and a catchy, poetic and deep chorus makes this song legendary. And when one mentions this song one cannot forget the great flow, especially in the last verse Lupe threw down on this track. He used the same rhyme through the whole verse, which substantiates and emphasizes the message on the track. Song really make your soul heart, 'namsayin?

Fighters. Lyrically on a whole other level and an amazing beat. Simply incredible and an inspiration to me personally.

My favorite Lupe Fiasco song has to be "The Instrumental" from the "Food & Liquor" album. I like message of song. I think it's about someone who's being brainwash by TV. This song never get old for me. I can play it 100s times.

Hurt Me Soul of Lupe's debut album, Food and Liquor. Lyrics on point, beat on point, message on point. One of the best songs by Lupe, as well as one of the most underrated!

My favourite song is (Words i never said). I like this song because it speaks the truth about the society today etc.

My favourite Lupe song would have to be "Hurt me Soul". This being my favourite song as Lupe talks about the pain hurt that people are going through everywhere in their ordinary day lifes and shows different scenarios of what is happening around the world. He then represents to the people in the position from what he is talking that, that "no one can hurt you as it's your life and your in control". This shows passion from Lupe by writing a song that have been in the position about what he is talking about and telling them that "he understands their hurt". This is why "Hurt my Soul" is my favourite song.
