Lupe’s New Single

lupebillboard.jpgNew joint from the media-proclaimed savior of hip-hop. It’s produced by the man who dances in front of giant green roses. Felonious P. I personally love the record and not just because I’m into distribution. Its like what Tribe would be doing if they didnt suck now. Check it out:

Lupe Fiasco “I Gotcha” (Produced by The Neptunes)

  • Danja29

    Foist!

    and yep, I fux wit’ it too

  • Jeru

    I FIRST HEARD LUPE ON HIPHOPGAME.COM YEARS AGO, BACK THEN NOONE CARED ABOUT HIM REALLY. NOW THAT HE’S COSIGNED BY JAY Z EVERYBODY’S JUMPIN ON HIS D*CK….
    HE DOPE THO….

  • L

    Niggas are jumpin on his dick, but i do like his style and its a fresh sound expecially today. Two thumbs up

  • Tru Wanksta

    It’s refreshing to hear shit other than “crack” music, although I’m sure he won’t satisfy all the “gangsta’s” out there.

    Lupe–

    I know you’ll be reading this.

    Hot bars, cheesy beat. It reminds me of “Allure” from “Black Album”–almost banging, but I’m not yet sold on it.

    I’m still copping “Food and Liquor” when it drops though.

    PEACE!

    He is the truth and if you cant see that than your musicly blind. If you want a fresh peace of knowledge with sick beats than you’ll cop the album.

  • http://www.myspace.com/edword52 eDworD

    Sounds like a classic Neptune beat! Good single as well!

  • Darryl Williams

    Kick, Push didn’t really show Lupes lyrical skill, this does.
    Real nice.

  • http://snitchsrus.com SnitchyMcRat

    i first heard this and i was like this sounds like pharell but if used some dirty sounding drums…dope..

  • http://www.honorablemedia.com/blog Honorable

    great track. lupe is my new favorite rapper!

  • http://www.trendsettazinc.com DJ Main Event

    this has some potential. thank god the audio was better than when he performed it live.

  • Fred D

    Big Ups to Lupe!! Dude is Real Fresh and the game need that right now, the beat a little phony but his raps are nice!! I need an Artful Dodger Hoodie
    PEACE

  • XL

    The track is str8(on the commercial tip)-Wasu is always on point with the lyrics!! He’s gonna blow-CHI-TOWN!!!
    ITS OUR TURN!!! Im glad Skateboard kept his 16 in VA!!!

  • http://www.filthynewyork.com UpTowN-CHRIS

    Lupe is tight, hes been around.

  • Dart LA

    Fresh sound-Chicago is definitely on the come up. Good shit Lupe- Look out for Chi’s next heavy hitter Mick Luter-dude is killing em with the lyrics! 1

  • http://stolenlegacy.wordpress.com dick dondi

    More to the point: this is what Tribe would have done in ’91 if all the samples and Ron Carter bass moves had been done on a midi keyboard. Granted, the voice moves are three times dope. ’06 fire surely, just don’t try to rewrite history, Sicky.

  • A.L. home of da yay sales

    he is one of my favorite rappers and that was one more reason why but it did help that he had one of my favorite producers on it

  • http://www.myspace.com/therapistmusic Therapist

    shouldn’t that be THELONIOUS P?

  • http://www.myspace.com/asapone Asap..

    “thats a breath of fresh air right there”..It shows great lyrical talent and builds character when u can format a song over a so so beat .although that beat does have its upsides, its still very commercial and can appeal to the suburban masses..thats where the money is anyway…good sound tho…the Boi Lupe made it work…..thats a true star there.

  • http://myspace.com/bunchwreckincrew Yung “Cee-Eye” So Fly

    I like this. Gotta a nice feel to it. Regardless of what people say, the game needs Lupe. An emcee that aint afraid to be himself, regardless of what the fukkin Status Quo is. More power to the kid. Im coppin….

  • http://www.myspace.com/therapistmusic Therapist

    they axe scented like the UK

    sheesh

  • Omar

    “Tribe sucks now”, Go kill yaself!

  • http://www.myspace.com/shawnlawrencejames Shawn Lawrence James

    Great track…A Little X video would be great for this track. Real simple and showcasing the culture everyone is biting…Yo dont the hook sounds like that old Fam-Lay shhit? Or is it just me? Hot track anyways…

    Peace & God Bless!

    Dope track, but if you ever diss tribe I’ll beat you with ya sidekick 3

  • kevin

    lyrics are tight, the beat and chorus are wack though, please do not compare him to tribe, not fair to him…

  • gluvnast

    loved the 1st verse, if people didn’t catch it…it was like how jay-z did lyrical exercise, but this one about aromas

  • DW85

    Refreshing…Lupe is da true and I can’t wait for “Food and Liquor” to drop

  • http://GITRITEENT.COM GRAMZIE

    Tha joint was was aight.dont think its stronge enough 2 follow kick push.ive heard better from son.if he gone drop that miles well put out pen&needles.he woudve killed em if he put out somethin like he “He gits tha girl” after kick push.lupe if u readin this, u gotta destroy em,they cant fuck u.you like a janiter you gotta clean hip hop up its a mess.

  • BlaQ

    THIS IS LOOKIN TO BE ONE OF THE BETTER RAP ALBUMS OF THE YEAR…FALL 2006 IS GONNA BE SICK TIME IN HIP HOP!!! I WONDER HOW IT WILL MEASURE UP GAINST NAS’ ALBUM. HE AINT ON NAS LEVEL THOUGH.

  • Face of Red Hook

  • Dart Parker

    Whut Ups ‘Dart La’! How’s it going???? Get off my dick and tell yo bitch to come here…

  • fuck u man

    You know nothing if you think Tribe would have made some shitty, happy garbage like this when they were in their prime.
    Lupe is wack..so sad to see that an artist so blatantly conscious of having a “marketable image” is considered the “savior of hip-hop” what a joke….and the skateboarding angle is tired as fuck, give it up… Saigon is 100x more talented than this clown will ever be….but the dickriders will continue to jock..

  • fuck u man

    The “game” doesnt need Lupe…the “game” needs an enema

  • dominican

    ya better not push this hit back again or else sickamore!!!

  • Not The One

    this is garbage. stick to skateboarding. you have a better chance

  • http://UG-RS.com Tyler

    Either ya’ll drank the KoolAid on this dude with the wackest name in hip hop or hip hop has been so terrible as of late that anything new is good or hot now a days cause this dude ain’t doin’ it yo. He is making noise but he will still go double brick. Get up on the new shit at:

    “savior of hip-hop”?????
    i think not…

  • RJ

    Most people that says their not feeling lupe is people from the south.

    That crunk sh** and that snap sh** will soon die down.

  • fuck u man

    Or maybe they aren’t from the south and just have good taste??

  • pop a poppa

    corny corny

  • Unfaded Disciple

    I’m sorry but the only people who would say Lue Fiasco sucks are the people who doesn’t understand what he is sayng…

    You see, he uses metaphors alo go in a deeper depth than just o blantl speak out what he is saying ya know. He wants yall to think.

    Sometimes people’s mind is develop differenty than others, but felt Lupe on this track and realy he gon sell…

    And dude made on fucking skatboard song but yall are not listentin t the rest of his shit…

    But despite the hate and few reason why all dislike him…i’m stll gon cop his album and rep Lupe…

  • http://www.dubcnn.comwww.streethop.com YG DA BOSS

    I am feeling this particular track and just in general the potential Lupe has. The track is catchy and he spits hard very raw and has a consistant strong flow on this one. I am real curious to see what he does in his career and like he mtnioned in an interview with dubcnn it’s a challenge for him to be in this industry with being a Muslim. Should be interesting to see him develop on the mainstream stage. Props on the track…….

  • http://www.myspace.com/specialopsbez B-EZ

    the first verse is a contender for 16 of the year.he keeps the theme of “scents”, but you really dont realize that until the 3rd or 4th listen.this album is gonna be illmatic-esque, critical acclaim, commercial dissappointment.the next one is gonna be it was written,this dude’s gonna be around awhile.

  • rec

    This song is way to complex for anyone under 20…lol

  • RJ

    I’m 17yrs old I get what he’s saying.

    But I got to listen to it a couple of times before I really understand.

  • Ant

    A lot of the people that hate on him do not realize what hip hop really was and is. Not downing anyone cuz i happen to like a lot of stuff i here. i mean i can listen to Jeezy but the nex min pop in some Lupe. They are both masters of their genres

  • Epitome

    This track is just OK. The beat sounds like you took an early 90′s Tribe beat & converted it to a casio preset on a $50 keyboard. Average at best.

  • http://xxl YEAH

    fuck lupe this beat is garbage …last…

  • nonofya

    You need Better blog ideas

  • Skateboard C

    The kid is holding it down. I love the song “I Gotcha” but “kick Push” even more because I’m a black teen skater.

  • Toine

    Wack. Hes just anotha nigga sayin hella metaphors on wack beats. Niggas dont understand u gotta make good songs. niggas dont want to hear a nigga droppin lines and lines but really aint sayin nuttin. So niggas stop droppin lines and start makin good songs. Just like Lil Wayne. What the fuck do he be talkin bout. He just be ramblin on and on. And oh yea the production on that track sucked.

  • \sjios\deio\shnd

    I quite like him but i dont like this beat. i’m getting tired of these neptunes like beats. Pharrell kinda wore this out.

  • Shawty T

    Ay Im From Atlanta & 4 Dat Nigga who Said niggaz from da south aint feelin Lupe Iz a damn lie. Datz all i bang right now. If u a real hip hop fan it dont matter where u from u gonna reconize real music.

  • millz

    He is a media sweetheart and is cosgned by Jay Z just like lil brother was. Look what that shit did for them.
    I like the kid but more PEOPLE gotta start fuckin with him for it to make sense.

  • http://www.myspace.com/mindbendersupreme alleyeCNtower

    this song is better when performed live… I saw Lupe a few weeks ago. And he’s a touch over-hyped, but he’s still just the personality hip hop needs right now… he’s not as confident as Kanye and he needs to be more convincing

    still, this is a nice nice jam

  • http://www.paramedicmusic.com Lounge MD

    feelin’ this, haven’t been feelin’ the Neptunes for some time now, but this is a mad improvement.

  • the illest JP

    First to all the people who say a song sucks if the beat isn’t good. A song is not all about the beat. ITS ABOUT THE WORDS. Lupe is very intelligent and really is a breath of fresh air. So far everyone who has had negative comments needs to go take 3rd grade english over again because I can barely understand what you’re saying. A beat is imortant but it shouldn’t be the only thing considered in whether or not a song is good. The best part about Lupe is that he’s trying to become mainstream without changing his music. He’s trying to show people that there is other stuff out there besides the shit their listening to on the radio nowadays. And Tribe is unbelievable and should not be compared to Lupe because they’re from two different generations.

  • anna $$cha-ching

    hey lupe,
    ur flava is hot and i cant get enough. Hit me up when u have a chance. By the way , neone hu is ‘bad mouthin’ lupes wk …all i gotta say to u is CRAWL BACK INTO YO MUMAS ASS COZ THIS SHIT IS STEPPIN IT UP!
