Lupe Fiasco- Hurt Me Soul



This song, and more particularly this artist, is very rare for hip hop. He is my favorite guy for Hip Hop, and continues to be a reason why I still love the genre. Don't get me wrong, but I feel most of it is just complete BS and a waste of time. But like I said, most of it. And this is coming from a person who was RAISED on it. But this fellow named Lupe Fiasco goes on to be a positive, intelligent, and cunning artist who prefers the concept of quality over quantity. Its rather refreshing to know someone is aware of all the ills in the world and how negative they can be. The song starts out with a line that states his stance as a person, and his mind frame on the realities most try to ignore. The line goes: "Now I'm not trying to be the greatest/I used to hate hip hop, yup because the women were degraded." He tells (in the first and second verse) about his upcoming growing up in his neighborhood and the third verse he speaks on many things that bring social injustice and ill to this world. And hey, even if that aint your kind of soup, its still a nice beat to enjoy with your ears. Enjoy!

  5. You can't say you hate hip hop without understanding Lupe's "Dumb it Down" first. Too smart, too good.

  6. This is great stuff. I agree completely that it's important to have hip hop artists like Lupe Fiasco. They keep it alive, they keep it acceptable, they give it a defense against the hatred from others.
