Hip hop is the lifestyle rapping is what you do when your making a song. Theres one genre no pop rap there wack rap and there dope rap that's it. Don't try and make this like heavy metal where they go 20 different genres and all the shit is the same.

+Reconis Taray lyrics are easy to find on a website, i was offering an alternative. like what you wanna like, i wasn't making that comment as an attack on you. just.. music made only with the intent of 'selling records', not for creative expression, is senseless.(lupe fiasco's music - creative expression and with a purpose). some 'heavy' or heavy-ish bands off the top of my head. novelists, erra, embracer, i am waves, napoleon, dance gavin dance, oceana, lower definition, of machines, being as an ocean, the tale of my defeat, outline in color, prepared like a bride, the color morale, saviour, the word alive, in hearts wake, rosaline,

Excuse my ignorance, but Lupe is Muslim (and on repeated occasions, states that he doesn't drink nor smoke) so why is he shown sipping a 40oz @1:30 in the video? There must be a deeper meaning to this that I'm not understanding..
Report spam or abuse
it's ironic towards the current state of industry and hip hop game in general
Report spam or abuse
He's a Hip Hop poet...he is using art (imagery, words, actions) to illustrate points and to convey meanings. Don't take a video to represent his personal character. I am not saying he is perfect by no means but a video should not show be used to judge and artist, especially when it is a precedent that the are frequent users of allegories, metaphors, similes, double entendre etc.

I like how he pointed out the exotic car rental place. Most these rappers, nah ain't doing that. straight frontin. Lupe from Coast To Coast I always fucked with him. He so underrated smh

I must not be vanilla because I sure ain't got no privilege. But maybe that's not what he's singin' about. Maybe I am from a specimen of Vanilla planifolia and he sings about that artificial factory-made chemically induced stuff that stinks but they put in a suit and try to sell to use any way.  Either way, I still enjoyed the song.

Your music reminds me of what I call 'rap' but it probably had another name.... Melvin Van Pebbles and of course!!! Gil Scott Heron. I liked your lyrics too. Finally! some rap I can get into (at 66) (but probably won't, cuz I'm 66). :)

Niggas complain about the state of rap and hip hop today and how it used to be so much better, then when a rapper like Lupe fiasco makes a throwback tune like this they be complaining that he ripping off a classic tune. 
Report spam or abuse
And ironic thing is, those tunes from back in the day were rip offs of other tunes from even further back in the day! lol. Hip Hop was birthed from sampling tunes, so it's beyond me how people who claim to be real rap fans don't even know and recognize that fact, and then exactly like you said, get mad when an artist does it today, and does it superbly, I might add. Niggaz are retarded.

I get the video. The people out in the neighbor hood, the man bringing him the chains. The different stereotypes, (40's), shooting dice. The exotic car rental lol.  I had that part figure out before the video ended lol. I was like umm he's driving in the neighbor hood with that car, didn't make sense, it has to be a rental, and it was. You see at the end he didn't have all those chains, am assuming those were rental's too. Basically don't believe everything you see in music videos. Those that are claiming to own the fancy whips and chains, the houses but not in real life- reality vs. illusion.

+rapidryu Because they give the paycheck to millions of people, who all pay taxes. No taxes for the firms means they can invest in the business and expand, hire new people etc. This is needed to keep the economy flowing.
