See, Lupe really is a douche

The TIs over at VH1 wanted to get Kanye West to perform as of their tribute to A Tribe Called Quest for this year’s Hip-Hop Honors, partly because the guy’s fucking huge right now, and he may have mentioned at some point or another that he likes A Tribe Called Quest. Who doesn’t?

But they couldn’t, because, like I said, the guy’s fucking huge right now. What the fuck does he need with VH1′s Hip-Hop Honors? He’s probably over in Europe somewhere making some interracial pr0n (to add to his collection) with some smokin’ hot modeling chicks. I know that’s where I would be!

Is there a connection to be drawn with him shunning XXL to pose with Fiddy on the cover of Rolling Stone a few weeks ago? Who’s to say. At any rate, he couldn’t be there.

So they called Lupe Fiasco, who’s like Kanye West in the sense that he’s from Chicago and he dresses like a fruit. He won’t sell as many albums in his career as Kanye West sold in one week last month, but people (from okayplayer, who wouldn’t know from good rap music) consider him along the lines of A Tribe Called Quest.

Lupe claims he wouldn’t have done it, since he’s gone on record as saying he could give a rat’s ass about A Tribe Called Quest, but Q-Tip (who may not be aware of the Internets) asked him personally. What was he supposed to say? I’d do it, if I actually gave a shit about your music, but I don’t?

That just wouldn’t have been nice.

And it’s not like he could just pull a Kanye and claim he had to go somewhere where people are interested in seeing him. Everyone knows there is no such place. There probably are white girls who would have sex with him, but there’s white girls who would have sex with me. Hardly an excuse to miss a rap concert.

So Lupe was on to perform. Now all he had to do is learn to the words to “Electric Relaxation.” As a rapper, you’d think this would be just as simple as picking up a copy of Midnight Marauders, listening to the song a few times and committing it to memory, but far be it for me to speculate as to the difficulty of someone else’s chosen line of work.

People think this blogging shit is as easy as rolling off of the couch at the ass-crack of noon and typing the first thing that comes to your mind that’s vaguely related to rap music, but you see what happened when Lupe tried to blog here last year.

Which begs the question: is blogging really that difficult, or has the system of public education in this country failed these rappers to the point where something as simple as typing words into a little box on a computer beyond their range of ability? For the sake of job security, I hope it’s the former, but my fear is that it’s the latter.

As far as what went wrong with Lupe in his quest (I know) to learn a few bars of “Electric Relaxation” in order to pay tribute to Tribe, it’s hard to say. Lupe, to his credit, claims he often has problems with the lyrics to his own songs, let alone the lyrics to other people’s songs that he has to learn in a short period of time, but I don’t know.

The fact that he only had like four bars to spit, combined with the fact that he’s gone on record before as saying he could give a rat’s ass about A Tribe Called Quest, suggests to me that he just plain didn’t care enough to make sure he got it right.

    And yeah, he’s a clown… but not for fukkin’ up on stage (which was bad enough). But for backing it up on okayplayer.com with that half-ass excuse: “I didn’t listen to Quest growin’ up, I listened to Spice 1 and Snoop”… what a cop-out. What does what he listened to at 13 have to do with fukkin’ up lyrics NOW? Especially seein’ as how he’s so outspoken against the negativity in hip-hop- surely nobody callin’ on Lupe to do “Gin & Juice” instead.

    He gave a half-assed rendition (is eight bars REALLY that hard to learn?) and got criticized. His best bet woulda been to just take the L and admit he fukked up. That excuse just made him come off lame.

    And BOL- you know this non-drinking, non-smoking, respectful, skateboarding lover of robots is gonna “jump off in your ass” over this, right?

    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
    Woah, hold up a second. I’m 18 and love A Tribe Called Quest (they’re one of my favorite groups and The Low End Theory is one of my favorite albums). I love a lot of old school stuff like Grandmaster Flash, Whodini, some Kurtis Blow, Run DMC, etc., you get the idea, there’s a lot of older groups I love in addition to some newer stuff. Sick of this age thing. It’s a matter of preference, not the time you came out of your mother’s womb.

    But seriously, if Lupe did that shit I lost some respect for him. He’s good, but overrated. “Dumb It Down” had a good message that I agree with, but the track was still meh. As a lover of smart hip hop I will get seriously mad if someone thinks I don’t understand what Lupe or any other intelligent MC is saying. It’s not that I don’t understand it, it’s that I don’t masturbate to it like hardcore stans do every morning, afternoon, and night. Peace.

  • Josh

    Hey, all I know is I’m not a Lupe fan, but I gotta give him props for not giving a rat’s ass about ATCQ. I’m 28 and grew up on Rakim, BDP, PE, EPMD, Run DMC, etc. Tribe just didn’t speak to me. Neither did De La until Stakes Is High. The early 90s for me was R&B and West Coast shit…Wu and Boot Camp brought it back for me…And its not that I don’t like so-called conscious hip hop cuz I love Common and the Roots and post-Stakes De La and dead prez and mos and kweli…It’s just that Tribe was overrated. They had a couple of ill songs. That’s about it. And the Groove Is In the Heart Remix…

    And for the record, Lupe’s overrated too. Sorry Pro and Track…

    fuckup or not, Lupe’s kinda a lame posterchild for “conscious rap” right now. Kanye and to a lesser extent Common manage to actually project some personality into their songs. Lupe just sounds like “OK i gotta do a song about this, one about this, and another about…”

    Kanye West = rapper with a conscience, Lupe = conscious rap claptrap with narcoleptic budget Just Blaze beats. real tizzalk. and crazy people who’re arguin’ he’s technically great? not allowed to criticize ‘Ye for anything.

    we have all seen people forget the words to their own song in performances. i have seen people f*ck up the words to the star spangled banner/national anthem. i mean i’m not a patriotic person and sh*t but the song been along since the war of 1812. i seen jay-z mess up some of his own songs. nobody makes a big deal out of things like that but don’t mess up ATCQ song. i know like one of their songs barely, i didn’t listen to their songs growing up either, i grew up on west coast music. dude was just being honest, take it or leave it, its nit that big of a deal.

  • C.Gabi

    the issue I have with Lupe isn’t that he messes up his own songs. they’re his, he can do that.

    but when someone who’s legendary…legendary enough to be honored in a legitimate hip hop award show (minus missy elliott), asks you to perform with them, the LEAST you could do is memorize the words to the song, or the words to the bars you’re spitting.

    ain’t nobody mad he didn’t listen to midnight marauders or any other atcq albums. but this lil nigga still aint listen to it after the fact. then he goes on okp with madd swag to defend his bullshit excuse? is it that hard for these second rate rappers to man up and say “i fucked up, i’m sorry”. cuz really he doesn’t owe his fans or actq fans an apology for anything, he owes it to atcq.

  • Gamma

    I cnt knock LUPE on that but my problem is that he shount need to study that shit I I had that whole CD down when I was only 14 and im 20 now you cannot be a wordsmith without the proper sword in other words the midnight muraders mater of fact there whole catalog is a big blueprint to so many styles theres no excuse to why he fucked up there words put some real fans on there no dissing lupe but he droped the ball .

  • Ace

    I have to say it’s sad that Lupe doesn’t fuck with Tribe. All they did was pretty much lay out his style a decade before him. But, whatever. That’s just the old head of 23 talking about one of the dopest rap groups of that era. Additionally, electric relaxation is one of the easiest tribe songs to learn as it’s all almost all quotables. It’s not like they told him to learn brooklyn zoo.

  • Ki

    Well somebody couldn’t wait to jump on anything negative surrounding Lupe Fiasco aye? Anyway Lu is not the first nor will he be the last to flub up on some dang rap lyrics. It could’ve been a combination of factors of why he didn’t get the lyrics right(over-excited or simply forgot) But what’s hilarious is the fact that you jumped on this to blow it up as a major issue. And for his comparison to Kanye West…there should be none for the fact their simply both from Chicago. Lu is completely different in my opinion. Sir West flubed up his own lyrics on SNL recently and nobody went blogging away about that incident. I sure hope that Lupe doesn’t come on here to reply or explain anything to you…for what? Aww your just bitter because he probably won’t be your Fwiend!!! HAHA

  • Phillip C

    I think Lupe is more influenced by YellowCard then classic Hip-Hop like ATCQ. Even so why wouldn’t Lupe just save face and not admit to favoring emo bands over classic shit…I guess he wants to go against the grain..good move…hope you have a nice kick flip

    Some of the things I see people postin… Did you even listen to Food and Liquor or are you just blabbin your mouths? Alright all criticism is fair game wit the Tribe performance, but alot of these posts saying “Lupe is boring”, “Lupe has no personality”, “Lupe is a weak representation of conscious rap”, blah blah blah… You can hate all you want, but you really know you didn’t listen to the album so just stop frontin. There is a reason that this album is one of the most revered hiphop albums of 2006. “The Cool”, “Hurt Me Soul”, “American Terrorist”, Kick Push one and two, I could double that list if I remembered what some of the songs was called. Damn you either don’t know much about hiphop or you didn’t listen to the album.

  • clarknova

    Yeah, I DID listen to Lupe’s album, kept it around for weeks just trying to see if maybe it might sink in and I might get to liking it, you know how some albums need time. But it never happened. The best way to describe his record for me is “boring”. Combine that with his “beef” with Bol, several interviews where he comes across as an arrogant douche, and his messing up 8 measly bars of a fucking classic song, and I gotta say- fuck Lupe. He’s like Kanye’s ego crossed with Rhymefests boring ass persona, but with none of the talent.

    I’ve been saying the same shit about lupe fiasco for 2 year and have been citing that he’s weak and a fraud for some time in my writing on str8hiphop.com.

    #1 the boy was talking that gangster shit before he got signed. I know I got his first couple of mixtapes from back in 2004.

    #2 his partner in his 1st & 15th label is in jail for 45 years for pushing heroin (wow a conscience rapper for the people got funded by drug money)

    #3 the skateboard personna was all marketing, the nigga never wore any glasses till his first photo shoot for atlantic records.

    Bottomline he’s a manufactured rapper.

    The only reason the media and fans take up for him is because pharrell co-signs him, jay-z co-signs him, kanye co-signs him.

    People are sheep… they like what popular people like and now we have a whole lot of stupid people who stand up for this kid not because he’s good, but because they were programmed to think he represents the “new era of hip hop” by a bunch of tastemakers. Fuck outta here…

    The gimmick of the skateboard loving Anime robot nerd was wack. Now he’s angling towards conscience rapper.

    I’ve listened to the nigga’s album and like so many people I can’t get into it. It doesn’t relate to too many people and his “conscience” songs are just a bunch of words from a book he read. He’s not spitting anything that’s revolutionary or from his own pot of wisdom. Honestly he’s not that “conscience” of a person. I’ll put him in the same frame as papoose in that aspect.

    If this is what the future of hip hop is… nas must be right and hip hop is dead.

    Let’s be reasonable here. I mean, I understand where you’re coming from Bol. But who the fuck cares??? I respect atcq musiz but that don’t mean lupe has to. Maybe he was in the wrong, maybe he was just speaking his mind. But you’re just trying to blow up something small and make it big. You hate on lupe like you hate on Jay. Nobody gives a shit about VH1, sorry to break it to you. I can just about guarantee this wont effect lupe’s career in any way shape or form.

  • “Retro”

    What you talkin bout Hurtmesoul05, like BOl even graduated. Lupe, although wrong in how he handled his biz, still has the right to an opinion. “Bill O’reilys an idiot, he aint the only one with an opinion fool”. -Chamillionaire. And I dont think people vibe to his shit because hes the “New Era” of rappers (I dont anyway), but they vibe to him cuz hes different, style wise or music wise (as “manufactured” as it may be). Maybe people are just sick of that Curtis or Jeezy bullshit, trap or die, that “Im not a rapper” type attitude. If youre gonna do trap music, take a page from Scarface or “Lord Willin’” era Clipse, and do it well. All in all I guess I’m sayin, Lupes a man, he said what he said, did what he did, don’t overanalyze everything. Oh and Bol as for he and Kanye dressin like “fruits” that pic you got put up looks kinda suspect. The black and white look like you in prison, and the way you lookin at the camera, priceless. Dont drop the soap. Unless you like that sorta stuff. Fruit.

  • clarknova

    Lupe sucks, period. He’s fake, he’s got a huge ego, and sorry dickriders, he has middling skills and little to no respect for those who came before. He’s an image you bought into. When he makes a record that isn’t fucking boring as hell, call me. Until then please stop with the slobbing of his knob, it’s getting gross up in here.

    Lupe is cold emcee, but that’s some real fucked up shit to say & do. Very disrespectful. On top of that, to even laugh at the shit you done on stage.

    yo,

    time and time again you prove yourself to be an illiterate a hole.

    How did you get this job? ‘I’m serious jonze’ you really are about as ignorant as they come.

    Hopefully, for the love of hip hop, someone will fire you. From the midwest to the south to the north, missouri born, never have I been as ignorant as you. You know the arch your city is famous for isn’t yellow right?
