    Default lupe fiasco is far too overrated

    this is not a shock post.

    his lyrics are on point, but the main issue with his overrated ass is his mic presence (his rapping voice) and his flow. both are extremely bland and if you give his lyrics to Jigga or Nas, they would make his lyrics come to life. I could never get into lupe's music and Ive tried.

    yeah idk what the fuck yall are on but

    lupe is the man right now.

    im 19, his music feels fitting for the times, and my times

    he does his shit the way he does it, plain and simple... his take on hustling and shit is fuckin ill, his wordplay and mix between advocating aspects of the hustler culture and disapproving at the same time. someone who cant really grasp the deeper meaning misses out, but they can still be down with it.

    the cool is one of the best concept albums ive ever heard. we had two albums come out around the same time that dealt with the perception of a hustler. American Gangster had a few good tracks, but Lupe's was better in my opinion.

    you say hes bland or repetitive, although he has a rather large repertoire of different flows and styles. dude could get on a song with enrique englesias for TSA, or jadakiss for me and still get down.

    cases in point

    the first 2 songs are decent homage to biggie's immaculate flow, but I would never bump those joints again. he simply does not have that charismatic swag that his ex-boss has. the 3rd and 4th joints are straight up wack and Im not checking those joints again unless it's accidental.

    man, i'm glad i come to this forum, to see all these different views and opinions, because i thought that lupe was widely considered probably the best lyricist of this era,

    but hey to each his own

    he bores me. i think he's 'too good'

    everything is too polished and on point and cognitive which makes it boring.

    i feel the same way about Jay-Z.

    excellent lyrics, excellent beats, excellent concepts but that doesn't make it entertaining at all and sometimes the excellence kills the entertainment factor.
