My favourite Lupe song is Lupe the Killer from Revenge of the Nerds mixtape because the wordplay in that song is crazyyyyy and every phrase can be translated into 676843 different meanings! However if I had to choose a favourite from Lu's three albums.....it would be Put You on Game because of its content based on the ills of society and the government. LOVEE IT.

If i had to chose one it would be Sitting Sideways Remix, Its just raw and the truth about street life, love the flow and he killled the beat.

It is hard to narrow down my favorite Lupe song to one, but if I had to it would be Intruder Alert. I choose this song because it truly speaks to my heart and I am able to relate to it.

*Till I Get There"... This song is probably my favorite song from Lupe in the LASERS Album since it's such a simple song, but the message is emotional. It shows how he dealing with all the issues around him until he gets there. It's that one song that I could relate to a ton.

"Words I Never Said" - just revolutionary. Lupe killed it on this one. He wasn't afraid to say what he thought - straightforward, honest, and fearless.

My all time favorite Lu song HAS to be The Coolest. Everytime that song comes on i have to listen to it carefully cause i know im going to miss something. It's a brilliantly constructed song. and the story to it is amazing.

My favorite Lupe song has to be "Words I've Never Said" I believe that the message that is being sent to the listening way more powerful than any other messages sent in songs by other artists and I also believe that it is true that you should just speak your mind because you never know if whatever you say could change the outcome of something for the better. I still can't believe that this song isn't played on the radio since it is such an amazing song and it is sending the user such a powerful message but I guess radio stations just don't understand the importance of people speaking their mind and not being afraid to tell everybody what he/she thinks.

I'm going to have to say "American Terrorist" It has everything. The catchy beat, a good flow, and not to mention the amazingly creative lyrics. They're far more deep than most other artists from any genre in this day and age. "The ink of a scholar is worth a thousand times more than the blood of a martyr." You seein' this? Wow!

"Words I Never Said". Lupe Fiasco is an inspiration. He isn't afraid to speak his mind and he isn't afraid to let us know what he thinks. The story behind the song is about many many unresolved conflicts and theories that have been debated throughout so many years. Lupe Fiasco shows his fans and the people that anyone can make a difference. Lyrically, he is a monster. Story telling, he is a genius. Inspiration, he is an idol. "Fear is such a weak emotion, that's why I despise it". Why are we afraid? Why are hesitant? The Words we never say, are the words that can make a difference. He showed me to not be afraid. "My screams is finally getting free, my thoughts are finally yelling through".

My favorite would have to be Daydreamin'. The metaphors Lu uses are absolutely ridiculous, Jill Scott sounds amazing on the chorus and it's the song that transformed me from a casual Lupe fan, to a hardcore one.

Hip-Hop Saved My Life because it tells the story of a nobody growing up to be one of the most famous people in the world, and after he is famous he helps out his family. That is exactly what i want to do with my family that's why I'm going to school and trying to get a good job. Plus I like the chopped up part where it says "Stack That Cheese".

"Never Forget You" featuring John Legend is my favorite song by you Lupe. The song is so lyrically incredible, plus the song means so much to me. Im 15 years old, and I know what it is like to lose someone. Everytime I hear the song, I can only help but think of the ones who arent with us anymore. The song doesnt make me sad though.....it gives me hope and isnpiration to move on. The line in the song "We put you in the ground but I see you in the stars" sums it up perfectly. I listen to that song all the time. I know you probably wont read this, but thank you for helping me get through life. Your music is a gift to me and all of your fans across the world, so keep it up Lupe.....keep it real

I really love, "The Coolest." It is amazingly lyrical, the beat is great, and the message admonishing the modern rapper's chase for fame and glory is wonderful as well.

My personal favorite song, is "He Says She Says" from Food and Liquor. An honest to God, this is the only and I mean ONLY! song to make me cry. The first time I listened to the song I was very emotional, because I was enduring the same situation as the young kid in the story, it was as if you were watching over me and wrote this song specifically to me. Ever since that day I was able to move on without the guidance of a father figure in my home. I had a very song independent mother who has raised me for 17 years and now her hard job is paying off, because I'm graduating high school. You may have millions and and millions of fan, an you may not read this, but I wanna just say THANK YOU! THANK YOU! For so much you've done for me, by writing one song you was able to motivate me. GOD BLESS FNF UP.

The Cool - Its telling a story what reflects me, and how I use to chase after materialistic things; but once I got older I started to realise that everything I have will pass and fade, and the only thing left in this world are your close ones and family. I would rather bulid a legecy and be remeber than wasting my money trying to get the latest things. Not being cheap but whats the point of getting the latest Jordans if your 10k in debt, that just seems silly to me. I know I'm struggerling to make a buck now but if I lay my head low I'll make it in the game, where the whole world will no my name, and not just another nigga from the street who was doing ok for himself. I'm not chasing the cool-The Cool chasing after me - Easy

Glory, off of Fahrenheit 1/15 Part II: Revenge of the Nerds. I've been following Lupe since 04 and the first time that I heard Glory it brought tears to my eyes, I almost broke down. I was going through a really rough time in my life and that song helped me through it. Not only did it help me through it but it inspired me to become a better person. It made me decide to be a more active human being. It made me drop listening to ear candy and develop a taste for food for thought. It made me open my eyes and realize that we are in a simulated reality controlled by our government. Any time I'm feeling down I listen to that song and it brings me right back up to myself. It still remains my favorite song to this day. I made countless friends sit down and listen to it while reading the lyrics in hopes that they would feel the same way as me. Through all of it though, it helped me realize that when you are intelligent and enlightened that all you want to do is spread that same feeling of peace, love, & understanding, but sadly, you can show people water, but can't make them drink it. It even inspired me to become an artist myself, and I know one day Lu and I will work together, but until that day...I'm going to respect the position I play, never letting my heart reflect the conditions in which I stay.

The Coolest because his genius lyrics got the concept of his album across...it also has a sick instrumental...."and if the rain stops and everything's dry, she would cry just so I could drink the tears from her eyes. she'll teach me how to fly. even cushion my fall if my engines ever stall and i plummet from the sky"

Tilted. It was the first track i heard from Lupe back in 05', back when his website was just two links (e-mail sign up, and the forums) and a mp3 stream of "Tilted". Thats what started my musical journey with my favorite artist

My favorite Lupe Fiasco song is Kick Push because that was the first song I ever heard from Lupe. I was watching TV one day and the videos that were being played were all the same. I kept waiting for something unique to come on. When Kick Push popped up on the screen, it was like a breath of fresh air. I loved how the lyrics were telling a story, it had meaning, and I instantly became a fan. Some other Lupe Fiasco songs that I love are Daydreamin', Hip Hop Saved My Life, He gets the girl, Paris, Tokyo, I Gotcha, Conflict Diamonds, Coming up, Never Forget You, Letting Go, The Show Goes On, Superstar, I'm Beamin and many more=-) Shout out to Lupe.The LASERS album is a work of art. One Love
