Yes, I'm glued to my phone most of the time and a lot of times I will just be googling random things. Anytime someone comes up with an "interesting fact" I always have the urge to look it up and research it to see if the claim is valid or if they were just trying to make good conversation. I do the same thing with music as well, anytime I hear a line that intrigues me or just leaves me floored with thoughts of "what? no way" I have to research it.

The story of the phoenix, sleepy hollow, black robe's red hood's, Black Swan. Here let me give you a quick interlude. In one of the parts of the video right after he state's don't believe everything you hear in the news it cuts to the scene of the phoenix waking up in the grass and there are three animals in this scene. A rabbit, a sheep and a deer. I stop there because i would rather you come to your own opinion on the song's chosen and the order of which they are played with the conversations between the start and end's of the song's.

I love Lupe! I got this song when it dropped at the beginning of this month. Definitly inspirational. I feel like he's definitly about to blow up into a lot of people's ears. Hes got my respect

Here's another great song by Lupe Fiasco - SLR (Super Lupe Rap)

[Verse 2]
‘Cause n-gga I don’t believe that
Like 9/11 came from Iraq
Mayweather on the speed bag
Automatic weapons keep the same rhythm he has
That’s how the hood sound
Grew up in the hood town
West side ghetto, Windy City Cook Count’
Black skies lookin’ up, crack pipes lookin’ down
Accused of not lookin’ back, blind n-gga look around
City on my back, so the CHI go everywhere I’m at
Presence so shiny, Mercedes so matte
Cop that from Platinum, the color of my plaque
I memorize colors off of Yo! MTV Raps
A nightmare walkin’ in a psychopath’s nap
Defeat your purpose like a weed stash in the rehab
Guess who’s sneakin’ in the weed bags
They be me with my mean ass
Not tryna be anything but free as
Flow is so nuts, the track is getting’ teabagged
Just wanna rap nice, that ain’t me tagged
If you wanna be mean, then you wanna be me bad
Call it bein’ Pretty Lyrically Swag
Soulja call it Super Lupe Lyrical
You can’t understand me nor mimic my miracles
All I see is me and Im a mother lovin’ mirror full
Bein’ dope is all in the muscle
It’s more than just a pause and a chuckle
I bench press elephants, and bowlin’ ball juggle
So dont be scared to take the Super Lu route
Top 5 alive and I only got 2 out!
School ya on your history, I tell ya what you ’bout
Fight for all the right things and let the Huey New out
Pharrell what these n-ggas talkin’ bout?
Two man Big Pun, a one man Slaughterhouse
A two album Jay-Z, a one n-gga Wu-Tang
Young and hungry Mos Def, a conscious rappin’ Lil Wayne
I don’t care for similarities
Cause I’m a pioneer, not a parody
These aint bars, this is barbarity
SLR… Clarity

In this World I’m so alone
In a category all on my own
Cause I tell the World what I want to
Yeah I tell the World what I want to

Man I feel so alone
They treat me like an Outcast
Cause I tell the world what I want to
But you can’t tell me what you gon’ do

I love Immortal Tech but he is underground, most people don't know who he is. If they do know him it is only because of Dance with the Devil. He is also very prideful and condescending to people in his music. It sometimes hard to listen to him. Dead Prez is also good but they are borderline racist with all of the anti-white remarks they tend to make. Lupe is mainstream and as far as I know is respectful. I love his new single.. though something tells me it will never top any charts.

Just wanted to share my Kinetic Typography video for this song with clips from the newly released music video (which is REALLY GREAT! kudos Lupe)
*I started a thread on this- but they shut me down b/c of already existing ones- LET'S REVIVE THIS THREAD POR FAVOR!!!*
This song is seriously awesome, and honestly- some say that he's just doing it to 'be controversial' or 'to make money' BUT
Lupe Fiasco is
a very successful, wealthy, popular, MAINSTREAM artist-
and in my opinion (and I know I'm not alone in this)
He has REALLY put his ass/career on the line with this track-

He has WAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY more to lose, than to gain.

hope y'all will check this out- put A LOT of time, effort, thought and TLC into this one

To me this video represents an awakening.

People who would like to bury their heads in the sand are having a hard time avoiding the truth.

It will all come to a head soon.
