Default Lupe Responds About The Album Cover...LMFAO

i could've done so much for the cover...but i felt hey why not do something fun...as a kid i always had dreams where I was flying so i was like hey why not?...plus i love Dragonball Z and they be floatin with mad lights and glow ala' Bruce Leroy hahaha...the cover is actually taken from this japanese manga print called "the sleeping man"...this guy is sleepin on this train and he and everything around him is floating...superfresh!!!...all the products around me and everything i have on is actual stuff I own that I have with me on a daily basis...like thats my favorite pair of jeans...its all my inspirations...items made by people that I am close friends with or things that I love like Nintendo (got the DS Lite by the way its a deep blue japanese beta version direct from Nintendo) that book is the Quran by the way...ya'll should check it out...a good read...its also speaks to materialism...I'll explain a lil later...the font is for you art buffs...on the surface its just arabic style font yay!!!...but any of you who are fans of absract art might appreciate that it was hand drawn for me by a very famous and respected artist by the name of Rostarr...this album was made for a lot of people not just hood niggaz or white kids in the burbs or just fans of hip-hop...I made it so that hopefully everyone who comes into contcat with it can appreciate something about it...even if its just the Banksy oil painting floating in back of me...more importantly I did it for myself...in my profession i always find myself doin stuff for other people...interviews, shows, whatever...but this is something where I was completely selfish and just did something that I like not really caring if people love it or hate it...pixie dust and all niggaz!!!...Enjoy!!!..."Us Placers" tape is cancelled but for reasons that I could've never possibly imagined...you'll see hahahahaha


in case u missed the gayness



i can respect him for being real and true to himself

but the cover is just gay lookin

The cover is gay, but he's real, and his music is good, so I guess it's (almost) all good =)

To me its not gay unless hes wearing some dress or making out with another dude. Its just art. Some of you got the bad habbit to be calling everything u dont like gay and that just means that ur insecure about ur sexuality. And by the way it doesnt make u more man by saying that, just totaly the oposite.



I do respect everybodys opinion tho.

gay(in this context) = soft, bitch-made, unmasculine

so for all those who were looking forward to buying this, have you changed your mind?
