Pretending to Be…


Lupe Redux…

Since “The Cool” dropped I really havent been on any Lupe shit.Its probably because I dont go on any hip hop blogs anymore. Its just full of stupid shit that Im not into. I heard Jeezy’s new album. I actually liked kinda like it and its getting some of play. Still havent took the time to listen to “LAX”…. I heard “Paper Trail” thought it was ok… But seriously Im starting to question my hip hop fandom… If it wasnt for Lupe, Nas, and Kanye I dont think I would even really listen to hip hop. But getting back on topic, I know Im late on this remix but I spazzed when I heard it. Shit is fire and that says alot since I cant stand Pharrell AT ALL.

And then I saw this:

Which made me go to my Itunes library and listen to the “Superstar” remix like a thousand times. Got to admit, T.I. spit a heavy verse on that…

And then I spent the whole day listening to my favorite albums by artists not named Nas, Lupe, or Kanye…


I never was into hip hop groups. Never got into Wu-Tang, ATCQ, or the Roots. I mean I listen to all of them but not consistently. But I love De La Soul and “The Grind Date” is my favorite album from them. I probably listened to this album about 50 times through. No tracks that need to be skipped. And how good is “Come on Down” where Flava Flav yells like a mad man. Call me crazy but I love that track.


Ok so the major reason I like this album is because of Ye’s production. I have the instrumental version that I listen to all the time. But this is my favorite Common album and “Love Is” is my favorite Common song of all time, “6th Sense” notwithstanding… Common and Kanye have amazing chemistry; his flow matches Ye’s beats so perfectly its scary…


I thought Blu would be the next Nas… I mean “The World Is…(Below the Heavens)” is probably one of the greatest songs of ALL time to me… His next project with C.R.A.C. Knuckles wasnt that great… but this album is one of the best of all time… Blu needs to drop another album real soon… this cat has unlimited potential…


I have no idea why I like this album so much, I cant explain. I really dont like Guru’s flow, its kinda dull. The interludes piss me the fuck off and takes away from the album to me. But I keep on listening to it. I guess Premo’s amazing production and Guru’s lyrics carry this album. I mean if you told me name my favorite albums I would NEVER have said ‘Moment of Truth’… But when I look at my playcount and just think back on what hip hop albums I listen to this album is among the top. I guess Im hooked on it subconsciously… *shrugs*

wait…
wtf was this post about???
oh yea, lupe…
Im back on my Lupe stannery again…
not that I was never off it, just took a break from it…
“LupEND”, cant wait…
