Lupe Fiasco – Hip Hop Saved My Life (feat. Nikki Jean) via The Cool (more…)

Track Eleven, Verse Three, Food & Liquor

February 26, 2008

So through the Grim Reaper sickle sharpening
Macintosh marketing
Oil field augering
Brazilian adolescent disarmament
Israeli occupation
Islamic martyrdom, precise
Yeah, laser guided targeting
Oil for food bartering, and terrorist organization harborin’
Sand camouflage army men
CCF sponsorin’, world conquerin’, telephone monitorin’
Louis Vuitton modelin’, pornographic actress honorin’
String theory ponderin’, bulimic vomitin’
Catholic priest fondlin’, preemptive bombin’ and Osama and Obama and them
They breakin’ in my car again, deforestation and overloggin’ and
Hennessy and Hypnotic swallowin’, hydroponic coughin’ and
All the world’s ills, sittin’ on chrome 24-inch wheels, like that

Track Fifteen, Verse Three, The Coolest Mixtape

If I was in charge of it
I’d stop feeding all of the nonsense
I’d starve all of it
I have ’em put the black experience on Mount Rushmore
I make em carve all of it
And then film a movie titled “We Made It”
And it stars all of us
I’d write the theme song, then we’d all cut it
Give us a deal then ball on the budget
Then start a magazine and put us all on the cover
I’d give all the awards to the single baby mothers
I’d resurrect Malcolm, have him to talk to the hustlers
Resurrect the slaves and give em all butlers
Chi-town Guevara, F N’ F UP!

I love the peace, and I love the war.

Lupe Fiasco – Freestyle @ EMU via Kanye West’s Blog

I don’t know why but I still can’t shake my tunnel vision for “The Cool.” ‘Dumb It Down’ pretty much caught my interest. But, come on, Fiasco IS his last name right?

Make a boat, I make a plane.

Lupe Fiasco – Dumb It Down via The Cool

One of the better lyrical efforts of ’07. And I think this is more like a kudos to his fans, saluting to the fact that even though his second album is on the way, he’s not reaching for commercial status. And I hope he will continue to make music that satisifies himself, because if it turns out to be more of what we see here, I can’t wait. Oh and this, pretty much beats out any of the “bang bang” “I got the nine on me” “my gun sounds like the 4th of july” or latest dance craze ridiculousness that continues to run rampant. Breath of fresh air.
