[Editorial] RH’s 30 Best Lupe Fiasco Songs
On September 25th, Lupe Fiasco will release his new LP Food & Liquor II: The Great American Rap Album Part 1. On the cusp of his new album, we decided to pay homage to Lupe Fiasco with this Top 30 song list. Lupe has made a career out of creating inspiring, thoughtful, and lyrically driven records and has a full discography ready for our picking. From his lyrical spaz outs like “Switch”, “Go To Sleep”, and “Lupe The Killer” to more the scripted and issue targeting songs like “Little Weapon”, “Conflict Diamonds” or “Happy Industries”, Lupe has shown a versatility virtually unmatched by any new lyricist in the game since he emerged with Food & Liquor in 2006. While this list has no order, sift through the 30 gems (including a couple from F&L 2) to get a glimpse into the mind of Chicago’s lyrical genius. Love it, hate it, tell us how dope our picks are, or tell us what we missed. This is a list for all the Lupe fans, and those late to the game and not sure where to start.
