    the album feels like Lupe is making even a bigger statement than Nas did with HHID...like this HHID how it should've been....

    BDR, 8 Diagrams, The Offering, and American Gangster are better than El-P and the Sick Jacken albums.

    Haven't heard the whole album yet, gonna cop it tommorow. Let me see if it tops my spot for the best album of 2007, i'm going with Desire by Pharoahe Monch right now...second place is 8 diagrams, third is Finding Forever.

    strtrets on fire. nice flow here im feeling the drums and song. 3/5

    intruder alert. 2.5/5

    hip hop saved my life; decent. 2.75/5

    gold watch. not feeling thisd one. 2.0/5

    hi def. crappy commerical song. snoop dog dosent even save this song.

    paris tokyo song. it has potential. 2.50/5

    superstar. i saw this music video. 2.75/ 5.

    coolest 2.5/5

    go gadget. too commerical 1.75/5.


    well i was lured in to buying this album from the corp. this guy at my job the album is gonna be dope. I think hes dead wrong. this album aint dope only 3 worthy songs of having 3 stars. I dont wanna shit on this album. im just disapoointed. i thought I was hear a hip hop savior for the mainstream. I fell so dumb not realizng lupe sounds like kanye. I never heard his voice or before. just that food and liquor was dope. so i bought in to it. out of all the hip hop albums I bought this year . this is the least fav.

    so its like this. perce p perservence, afro samuari, 8 diagrams, big doe rehab. stone throws 10 years and the offering shit on this album.

    wow.....that was cold. but to each his own man

    i loved it. its softer than the sht i usually listen to, but this is a nice album tht you can listen to with your girl and not get bitched at.

    my favorite tracks:
    -The Coolest (hated "the coolest nigga what" at first, but i have to admit, its catchy now)
    -Streets on Fire -- is this about AIDS or something?
    -Put You on Game --probably this darkest track on here

    wow. i cant believe Wu fans are actually putting up with this. This shit is corny and weak. it really blows me away that people on this site actually like this album.

    Fuck the backpackers that are hating on this shit. If Lupe only sold 50k, I'm sure more people in this room would be feeling him. The album is real nice. It flows from the beginning to the end. I agree with what some people are saying...Food & Liquor was his Illmatic & The Cool was his It Was Written.

    Top 5: Superstar; Paris, Tokyo; Gold Watch; Intruder Alert; Streets On Fire

    Overall Grade: (4.3/5) A-

    your review's instantly discredited. there aint even no defense of 'to each his own' for that.

    corny and weak? this is miles ahead of 8 diagrams lyrically. what are you talking about? It blows you away that people like non-Wu rap?

    just copped the album, today in fact. later release date over here. so far, the album sounds dope. lupe's flow is smooth thru out. damn, hip hop really needs this album, its really fresh. tracks like paris tokyo. dumb it down.... this is good music. cant say why any one could hate on it. need to give it a few more listens b4 i can say for sure but i can tel its gonna get better with every spin.

    Every sung hook on here is amazing (with the exception of Intruder which makes me cringe..) Songs like Paris, Tokyo, Streets on Fire, Little Weapon, Hip Hop Saved My Life....they all have amazing choruses.

    Average album, choruses are annoying.

    A few good tracks.
