Erm excuse me but when are you talking about? I hope your not refering to when he was quoted as saying the Obama win didnt move him because if people had bothered to listen properly they would have heard him explaining what he meant.
I dont understand why people cant just leave Lupe alone. So he fucked up the Hip Hop Honors.. JUELZ did that this year and no one even noticed, but when Lupe did it he was completely ridiculed. Lupe is the most underrated artist in this whole game. The issues he talks about are to complex for the average hip hop fan who’s fine with just “cranking that”. Smh. His album was dope. People need to cut this guy some slack. And then they wonder why he only wants to do three albums?
so whats the deal, is he the singer or not, cos it sounds loads like him
and why cant i find any sites or pages for this japanese cartoon
also when i searched percival fats lupe came up
good songs tho
and lupe is a legend. end of
So, everyone simmer down……it’s not him singing. And Miss Info, would you have said it was “pompous” if it was anyone else? I know you don’t favor Lupe as you’ve said before you find him conceited. But if he is funding the project…why is that conceited to say. How would you prefer he say it? Or should he not say he’s involved at all?
I hear you…but isnt this the same as when any established artist signs a group or produces a new artist or establishes a crew? The Neptunes didnt “finance” The Clipse. It just seems like some corny venture capitalism lingo that comes off…well, pompous.
You’re not donating money to PBS. You’re actively involved, no? Funded by the good people at Texaco. Financed by the Sultan of Brunei.
Fuck Lupe! He is a pussy for talking slick about Obama! It’s bad enough that he supported Hilary, so I can’t believe he had the nerve to even go and see Obama do anything! Lupe can eat shit and die! I will never support him or his music! EVER!!!!
Not feeling Lupe anymore…sorry. Dude just looks and sounds like a cornball as of late. I think rappers get so caught up in trying to be different that they lose themselves. And never realize that they are actually different before they started ‘trying’. Does that make sense?
yep it makes perfect sense
Will I AM, Pharrel, Charles Hamilton, and lately Kanye West.
Sometimes when your trying to set trends and establish swag, all you create is a really bad yearbook photo you look back on years later with total disgust and say WTF was I thinking!!
I am all for individuality and what not, its cool but some things are plain ridiculous. Lets just say that you have a sub par rap career and you are always complaining of not getting your shine. Lets go as far as you saying that you are going to retire. Why would you start a horrible band called Japanese Cartoon, give your self a horrible british accent? And have the audacity to be the lead singer. Too many people using auto tune? This is you thinking outside the box? This is you honing and perfecting your craft? This is you improving your skill/trade? Lupe I was a fan, I DL’ed your mix tapes and eagerly awaited your debut. You lost me between Food and Liquor and The Cool. Not for lack of lyrics but lack of respect for Hip Hop in general. You lost me as a fan for you falling into the cliche’ of a rapper who wants to start a clothing line, who wants to retire before earning your stripes, and whining about not winning awards.
How hard was it to learn Tribe Called Quest lyrics if you are going to cover their song? I think the public didn’t go hard enough on you for that one.
In my opinion you have completely sold out. I guess all that is next is you dating a white woman. (*Esdot is not racist, but pro Black)
But don’t take my word for it, have a listen for yourself.
“Actually thats true, most of the time you cant tell if they’re british when artists sing”
Speak for yourself mate! as someone from England I can tell you this is a pretty bad accent, to us over here it stands out just like when Jason Statham or Vinny Jones try to sound American to you guys.
Its an alter ego for Lu, its not bad, though its no Gorrilaz, and don’t know how UK listeners will take we, artists over here get huge stick when they rap in American accents so I don’t think critics will be easy when its an American trying a UK accent…
Still, he tired, the avid Lu fans will prob buy it just cos its him.
