    Love me some Lupe.

    Great song, even better that Lupe made the song about Slim Thug….THUGGA!

  • MUBWAR

    1 of only a few remaining mainstream amazing rappers

    I like Lupe, but i think sometimes he goes too hard to go over peoples heads. Still trying to figure out Dumb it Down. Lol. I get the concept of the song, but the actual lyrics are impossible imo. Songs like this, and Kick Push when he’s talking about life’s trials and tribulations, he does exceptionally well.

    Didn’t know this song was about Slim Thug.

    One of the last real MC’s to get recognized in the mainstream. This is the type of music that SHOULD be getting the airplay, but doesn’t.

    ITS KIND OF ABOUT SLIM, BUT ITS DEDICATED TO BUN B.

    THIS IS A GREAT VIDEO TOO. CAMEOS BY SLIM, BUN, WILLIE D, PAUL, AND K-RINO AT THE END.

    lupes “the cool” was an awesome album, but this song was just alright
    @dfrance, i kind of hate dumb it down now, just cuz he pretty much went back on his word.

    all hip hop artists these days need to ‘dumb it down’… why?.. because listeners don’t appreciate lyrics anymore. A catchy ‘club-banging’ hit is now more attractive to mainstream america, it’s just the way it is.

    y’all should check out ‘put you on game’ by lu.

    Lupe’s dope, but I never understood why in the Chi cats are so high on him yet keep sleeping on Naledge.

  • HAMMER

    “Daydreaming” baby.
    That’s my sh!t.

    This is one of the few Lupe sounds that I really liked.

    @airs I can’t really fault him, at the end of the day these guys still have to make a living. Us as fans want them to stay true to themselves, but we’re not paying their bills, the record labels are.

    The chick on the hook has a pretty impressive squirting video floating around the internet too, FWIW.

    Lupes albums are trash tho, but his revenge of the nerds & 1st n 15 mixtapes are on point

  • dma

    the last album wasn’t a lupe album, it was a record company album. like lupe would ever willingly want to work with trey songz and make that track.

  • LA Huey

    I like Lupe. ‘He Say She Say’ is really powerful for me. Loved Food & Liquor and The Cool. Last album seemed like he was just mailing it in.

    I’m really starting to hate beats that use fake-@ss “clap” snare drums though. Wow is that played out.

    BOING, YOU SERIOUS ABOUT THE SQUIRTING VIDEO?

  • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4C1DVoMJoEI Shecky Shabazz

    Lupe = Best in the game today. The End. And Boing, you are wrong. His albums (minus Lasers) AND mixtapes are on point.
