  • The Lupe Leak

    So whats the deal, don't know if theres already been a thread in here about this, if there is my bad. Anyway obviously most of you know Lupe Fiasco's debut album Food and Liquor has been leaked. I've read a few interviews with people discussing the leak as if its a huge deal, and theres a video on youtube of Lupe himself talkin about it. My question is, since when is it a big deal that someones debut album leaks?

    I mean artists like Jay Z, Eminem, Dave Mathews, and other already famous very well known artist have their albums leaked no matter how hard they try to avoid it, so why is it a big deal that a brand new artist has his album leaked? If anything im suprised at the buzz that has come from this.

    Thats not to say I wasn't anticipating the album after hearing some of Lupe's mixtape stuff, but I mean hes just a new cat who can spit who just so happens to be on Kanye's newest single. Anyway overall I really like the album it has a fresh sound, and its a good example of how you can make an album without glamourizing everything thats foul in the world and it can still sound hot and not corny. the lead single is as everyone already knows about skateboarding, and it is a hot song whether people see it or not. I believe he curses twice on the entire album and it doesnt take away from the sound in the least. Anyway I didn't intend for this thread to be a discussion of the album, but hell why not?

    So anyone who feels like responding, how bout trying to address two parts; do you think its a big deal the album was leaked? and overall whats your thoughts on the album?

    i think it was definitely a big deal for it to leak so early, if it leaked a little bit later on a lot of people still probably would have bought it.

      i think technically its a big deal that it leaked, coz i mean it just shows where things are going. but really it isnt. its not like anyones actually sittin there thinkin that they where gona buy it until they go the leak. either they were gna get it or not. it was always gna come out on the net and ppl had there minds made up.

      i mean lets flip this. me? neva wudda bought it. got the leak. loved the album and now i might even buy it. thats one more sale becoz of the leak.

      anyway - get this album ppl, really tight.

        It's a big deal because it isn't the advance. It isn't the album people were supposed to hear. It's unfinished and unmastered.

        Anyone else remember when Talib Kweli's Beautiful Struggle leaked? Kweli threw a fit and the final album was ruined.

          It's funny how the same exact thing that happened to Kanye, happened to this guy. Who is to blame?

                I think this hits what im thinking right on the nail. I mean before the leak I wasn't hearing much hype for the album and since its leaked a lot of people are checkin for Lupe.

                    the funny thing is its not fully mixed and mastered meaning the production could proboablly sound a whole lot better when it actually releases. I felt like the opposite, his rhymes and flows were nice but the production wasnt as tight as it should be, and the hooks were ass.

                      The album is pretty good, i'm listening now and this is the second listen so far, better than alot of bullshit albums of late, but still pretty mediocre.

                        Really? His rhymes and his flow are a lot better than you probably realize. I'm not gonna knock your opinion so far, but i will post some lyrics so you can SEE what hes saying and you can see the things that easily go over 90% of peoples heads. I'll give u someone elses break down of You My.

                        the orchestra in my mind dont play like this" basically i think he's saying he's not the sort of person people would see getting involved in hip-hop (and i think the IC proves this with all the haters he gets coz he's a 'nerd')

                        "brushed off my hair even cut my hair for it
                        coz normally i dont care for it" its pretty much common knowledge that lupe didnt use to like rap and thats what that means.

                        Just incase I was a schizo(skit,so..)
                        I compliment her on her Common Sense..
                        become a little more confident
                        and then we lose consciousness
                        she said i've been waiting for you
                        and i know you've been chasing me to
                        since they kidnap me from my castle i've been thinking of you
                        i told the fire breathing dragon he better not harm me
                        or be sorry when he meets my one man army
                        and thou has come to rescue me,
                        my knight in shining armour yes you be
                        woken up by the horn of a SUV

                        ...and on the surface, the songs sounds just like a typical girl track. i know that was probably a half assed break down of a song...but i just wanted to give u an example of something that might go over your head with one listen.

                          heres the lyrics to a track off the leak...


                          Game Time

                          As I gently push upon the scene, I feel like ammunition from a *sling shot*
                          Im trying to get triple sevens on my slot machine, and *knuckle up with time like a ring watch*
                          With no wings, hustle man, sittin in the rubberband of *Dennis the Menace's weapon of choice*
                          With the windows of his soul dead intended on the tinted windows of a Rolls
                          Broken glass on the driver's seat of a Royce
                          *Now how im 'posed to sit*, from Mr. Wilson droppin dime, before another penny's spent on this game
                          Before i cough up a cost and invest another thought i'll walk without my bucket of change
                          But im poor- materially speaking so
                          I cant be leavin this casino, with less than a c-note
                          Even if it takes a grand to get it i'll ride
                          *Just to see that my sedan has just been vandalized*

                          (Chorus)

                          Game Time
                          Dont get caught up in the game without your game right
                          Cuz things aint what they same like
                          It dont matter what they say just get the name right
                          Thats L as in Little
                          U as opposite of me and
                          P as in Pistol
                          and E as in E
                          Now playas say that boy walka like a man
                          Treat ya like ya fam and talka like a G

                          Now this is art, tailor made,
                          *Sharp, wrists'll kill razor blades*
                          I do *my part*, i chill like the *barber* of seville, homie...its like im paid to *fade*
                          Turn around and pay my dues with the wages made
                          ---And then I tip like what a waitress paid
                          I'm a ghetto *superstar*, handprints chillin and my name written where the pavement lays
                          Turn around and place my shoes where the names engraved
                          Then a, game is played til im rain delayed
                          Now thats my zone, but im far from an *actor, homes*
                          Like a *star map*, this a G talking like Sesame Street
                          Referee the beats that im rappin on- They trying to derail my train of thought
                          But i'm *Bruce Willis*, i dont feel it, while u *break yourself like a car jack*, This is hard black like where my palms at

                          Chorus

                          Now back to my *scrap with time*, my tap with the tickin
                          I make my fist, wrap my wrist
                          Leave my ring on, i can never get enough, *punch my clock*, *clock* my grip

                          *****s try to *pull my card*, stop my shift
                          Shift me to that graveyard and *knock my hustle*
                          They hope i *domino* and *free up my delivery* and at the same time mark my magnificence
                          im just trying to do the *opposite of left*, as long as theres the *opposite of death*
                          Yes, you test and i just might bring the *opposite of life*, til theres no one the *opposite of right*
                          Check as u bop down *writers block and cant find it*, I *ADDRESS*
                          I correct, you a dress, *I a pair of pants
                          I am Motorola you are just a pair of cans
                          Couple coca-colas and a string
                          Playa, im bout my *green like martian's skin*
                          -A sinner on the sidewalk they waving to from the floats in a parade
                          Saints go marchin in

                          Chorus
