Sunshine! It makes me feel good. It totally saved me in the easter holidays when i was up in the cold mountains of Norway and freezing my ass off. Because the song reminds me of summer and girls. I love the perfect combination between good lyrics and good beats. And that is why i love Sunshine with Lupe Fiasco

My favorite Lupe song is "Pressure" ft. JayZ. It was never a "big" song but none the less it gives you a sense of confidence. The beat is tight + raps from Lu and Jay + the sound of the Eagle in the background throughout the song = hardcore confidence builder, they should use this song during nba or nfl games to pump up the crowd. Thanks for the music and keep doin you Lupe!

Id have to say that my favorite Lupe song would be the superstar remix with young jeezy. one of the most creative flows ive heard, and that part about xmen? fire.

Where do I start? Lupe's whole discography is beamin! I can't even pick one favorite. But since I have to I'll say "Streets On Fire" Of course the wordplay and metaphors are top notch as always. The flow is precise and the beat is proper. But the way he speaks about an "unknown" problem or disease that everyone thinks everyone else has is GENIUS! You can plug a lot of the world's problems into the song and it'll still make sense. The feel of the song reflects the current times we live in. Very Dystopian and 1984-ish! He speaks about how media controls our minds. We're surrounded and barraged by endless propaganda, yet the truth can never die. People think Lupe was never political until "Words I Never Said" but those are probably the new fans that never heard his old stuff. Lupe's been telling the truth since day one! "My femme fatale my darling fraudulent angel Once caught her changing the batteries in her halo Receipt for her wings and everything that she paid for And the address to the factory where they made those"

Words I Never Said, this song is what brought me to love lupe fiasco. He defends people against ignorance and as a muslim i have my head held up high because he will show the world what it truly is to be a Muslim. Also i love lupe, he speaks the TRUTH!!!

My favorite song is "The Cool" from food and Liquor because it's so vivid... When I heard that my first thought was that "Wow, this dude is lyrically the dopest MC I've heard in a long time, this song is like a motion picture that I can watch in my head, full detail!"... I would like to have seen a video for that one though... Stay up Lupe, they afraid of our real leaders, so fear nothing!

Aaah so hard! I would pick them all if it was possible :S Hmm probably Muhammad Walks. It shows that we're all the same no matter what religion you are, we should all 'walk together' and we have the same mission in life. Plus, being a Muslim myself, it shows Islam in it's true light rather than what the corrupted media portrays it as! I love the beat to Kick Push which is just a classic, and the Lyricism of Happy Industries and Word's I never said, but Muhammad Walks wins it for me, It hits home. :)

My favorite song right now is SLR (Super Lupe Rap) where he speaks on how his presence is need in the game and is able to vocalize the need for a rapper whom can have a presence in the game with out the sense of money being their only goal.

"Sunshine" off his Food & Liquor Album. Track is so chill & laid back always puts me in the zen frame of mind, no matter the weather out ;)

WORDS I NEVER SAID. IT REASSURES ME THAT THERE IS STILL REAL MUSIC OUT THERE THAT ADDRESSES PROBLEMS THAT WE FACE AND SHOWS THAT LUPE AINT AFRAID TO STAND UP FOR WHATS RIGHT. LASERS

I love Daydreamin', because I also listen to the Gunter Kallman Choir. The way he put his spin on it was just genius, though. Then again, it's Lupe, he's genius on everything he does.

Well right now, my favorite song has to be between "Words I never said" and "State run radio" both off Lasers. It's all smart music and with great beats! :D

My favorite song was Hurt me soul cuz it lets us know that there many people with various different problems in their lives and we should count our blessings for what we have.

First asalam aleykum, there is so many to choose from and i like almost all your songs. If I have to choose one right now I would pick Conflict Diamonds because it was the first song I heard of you and I liked how it flow very nice and the way you broke down the game behind the bracelets, earrings, chains, watches and rings. :)

Lupe Fiasco - I'm Beaming Today nobody cares But tomorrow they will so true.

i love all of them but i really like I Don't Wanna Care Right Now. You performed it at my school's Spring Fling which had to be one of the best weekends of my life so whenever i hear that song I go back to that place. Thank you :)

My favourite Lupe track would have to be Conflict Diamonds. It educated me so much on the diamond trade happening right now, it just cut the rubbish that most artists rap about regarding diamonds. Plus the rhyming is tight, definitely your best in my opinion.

My favorite song is for sure "Beautiful Lasers," such an honest look into the mind of an artist. Very rarely do you ever hear a mainstream artist speak about something of substance let alone something so extremely personal. The entire album is so intelligent and insightful. Lupe is an inspiration.. I admire him so much.

"Sunshine" is my favorite. For some reason it makes me think of my girlfriend.

Hurt Me Soul without a doubt. It really echoes the troubles of so many people around the world. Not only does it have a great beat, but the lyrics are among the best of all time.

Superstar, because of the time i heard it it got me through all the rough times i was having and put a smile on my face thanx!

Fighters! I loved The Cool in general but this song stuck out to me because it reminded me of how I grew up in a city (Pittsburg,CA) where everyoe wanted to be this big shot and the mindset that they had was to oppress those with goals that sounded stupid or lame to them. I hated to see someone share their dreams and hopes with someone and that other person just laughing at them. Not everything is meant to be in your image but people should appreciate the goals of others who just want happiness in life...keep up the good work LUPE!! Can't wait for the next album!

I love "Never Forget You" it just came at the right time when I'm goin thru a thang... I love Lupe for giving us real music to listen to!
Cuspurs's picture

''Never forget you'', cause the song came to me when it was really hard for me to deal with my past, the place where I grew up and how everything has changed. Everything changes, but we dont forget it right?

Favourite song of Lupe has to be "Fighters" I can relate to it, even though some say its just a shout out song, its pretty emotional for me, and the message is special. The first verse is incredibly inspirational, and I can relate to what he's talking about. I lost my father too, and just like Lu I hope that God is watching over him. FnF UP!

Free Chilly. It came out around the time I lost my best friend and it helped me get through the acceptance part.
