Is SuperStar By Lupe Fiasco Offensive?

Discussion in 'Off Topic [BG]' started by unclejam, Feb 18, 2008.


  1. Had some Parents Complain About It Saying it is offensive.
    :confused:
    I played it with the thought of Encouragement that you can do what ever it is that you want to do if you put your mind to it.

    I think it's a good song. Nothing offensive about it.

    Personally, Talib Kweli does more for me.

    +1 to everything said.

    I like Lupe, but there are others that do so much better, and Kweli is at the top of the list.

    It's in about three keys at once for starts.

    Other than that, it pretty much sucks.

    serious?

    where is this hiphop you speak of?! cause i think lupe's pretty dam good. the lyrical flow's there, the gangster attitude isnt there, and while i'm not totally down w/ his production, he isnt rehashing the same chopped and screwed beat every other song.

    and that del song is from like 10 yrs ago...

    Yeah, the del song is old, but it's what happened to be playing on my computer when I posted. For the record, there are a bunch of newer rappers that I like more than Lupe, Aesop Rock being the first to come to mind.

    Lupe's not bad as a rapper overall, but that song annoys me.

    Outside of Heiro I can't get into Del.

    This thread belongs in Misc. with the other music related ponderings.

    oh no doubt,

    cool kids, mf doom, madlib, el-p, i could go on and on, the untainted underground will forever rule.

    but of the bigger names on a bill out there these days, i'll take lupe's conscious flow or even lil wayne's sheer nutiness over kanye's self aggrandizing ranting, TI's self aggrandizing posing, the beastie's stunted growth old school, or even dare i say, jay-z' pang for the good ol' days anyday...

    for example:

    Um, in music there kind of IS. Otherwise, it is just noise.

    The only problem with Aesop is his near inaudible vocal range. I mean... it's really low. Like, a challenge to listen to low. That and he's the "hipster approved" hip hop icon right now.
