The Show Goes On
Best Song By Lupe Fiasco!
Gud to Listen! 1
Definitely the Best song By Lupe Fiasco,
Beautiful chorus and verses and a unique kinda intro,
For A Rapper to do this, just simply AWESOME


This song is very touching enough to know what situation he's in. The lyrics are just amazing instead of talking about drugs alcohol etc. Definitely one of my favorites!
[Newest]Always gets me going!

2Words I Never Said
This is a song that made Lupe shine, too be honest. As we all know, Lupe has gone through tough stuff because of the LASERS album. He didn't agree with the songs his record label were shoving down his throat. So he retaliated with songs like Words I Never Said.

This song is the best and meaningful song of Lupe. It talks about real issues that has to be adressed especially the corrupt American government. But then again Lupe is always rapping about real life :)

The song is just... It leaves me speechless, every single line is phenomenal. Enough said.
Sick Song I think it deserves the number one, gotta say I didn't give lupe a fair chance at first but now that I'm listening to him more I'd say he's my favorite rapper!
This song is one of the best rap songs of all time and truly speaks the truth and says what some people don't want to hear but he has guts
[Newest]My anthem when I want something very sobering to listen to he hated lasers but this song was so raw

Lyrically and instrumental-wise one of lupe fiasco's best tracks. This should at least be number 2 after the coolest
This song is simply amazing. The chorus is well sung, and Lupe finishes it with his mad lyric writing. It is coolio! Nice...
The most in depth track of Lupe's lyrically. Should be number 1 just because of that.
[Newest]This song good. I like tacos too

4Kick Push
Kick Push
Show Goes On
Words I Never Said
Hip Hop Saved My Life
The Cool
Little Weapon
American Terrorist
Just several of his best songs in no order.
Just listen to the lyrics, this is a great song. You can listen to it in any mood, just a fantastic story and it is so well rapped and written. Lupe is just one of the greatest rappers ever. I wish he released more material.
Kick push, kick push, kick push, kick push, coast.
Catchy beat and the lyrics are just top notch
[Newest]Kick it, Push it! I love skating!

5Hip-Hop Saved My Life
I've never heard a song with such a constant flow. People need to support music like this more so we can better music!
I really enjoy this song. At first I liked Hi-Definition, but now I like this one better. The flow is so great, and the music itself is awesome. Also, low on cuss words. Definitely Lupe's best.
Flow like nas for real. Kills it and tells a story instead of just talking bout weed bitches hoes money lambos ya feel me?
[Newest]This song is the 1 though

6Put You On Game
Is one of the best song I wonder why is not number 3
This song is just verses of truth slapping you in the face
Such an underrated track.

7The Instrumental
This song is so dark and introspective. It's just intense I don't know how else to describe it
This is the best most raw shot at how kids are raised today. And how the media brain washes people
I love this song 🙌

8Dumb It Down
Once you understand the lyrics in the song it will become one of the most in depth songs you will ever listen to
All Lupe songs are sick but this is a song That I still don't know what he is on about yet I enjoy it so much one thing about Lupe is he don't dumb down nothing and hope he carries on making song like this
This song is one of the most complex lyrical metaphorical songs you'll ever hear. My second favourite hip-hop song of all time.

Amazing song. It all flows together really well in a way where you can just close your eyes and enjoy.
The best part about this song is the amazing mixing between the blue classics and the rap music...
15.. Wow one of his best songs. Epic chorus, beat, lyrics.. What he did with the body parts is amazing.. But I guess most people didn't catch that.
[Newest]Awesome song gotta love Jill Scott with the assist

9 Minutes of lyrical destruction
Easily One of the greatest hip hop tracks!
Lyrically maybe the best song ever

The Contenders

11Battle Scars
Just like when I first heard show goes on, when I heard this I thought this is special. It deserves 2nd spot after show goes on. This is real meaningful rap.
An Awesome song by Lupe! And guy sebastian has an excellent voice! Great meaningful song! How come its so low?


Its a classic song! Guy does his job... Love portrayed in means of war.. Splendid lyrics, splendid voice and awesome music. This song will keep you glued to the speakers.
[Newest]Amazing song, deserves to be at least in the top 5

12I'm Beamin'
Most of his song are good

13Little Weapon
Way too low, this song is very powerful and has a great snare drum in the background.

14Till I Get There
Should be number 2, one of the best. The three increasingly positive verses and the uplifting chorus make this one a winner.
This song gets me up in the morning... So positive! Just a great song to listen to when someone is in a bad mood

15Streets On Fire

16Hurt Me Soul
Top 3 for sure! This song is what all rap should be, he keeps it so real, like he raps about real life. He's the best lyricist alive in my opinion I don't care what anyone says.

If you take the time to listen and decipher the lyrics in this song you'll fall in love

One of my favorite parts of any Lupe song is here

"I had a ghetto boy bop, a Jay-Z boycott

Cause he said that he never prayed to God, he prayed to Gotti I'm thinking "golly, God, guard me from the ungodly"

This is one of the greatest songs ever
Amazing story, fantastic lyrics, great beat and a hook that leaves you wanting and craving more. The man is a genius and this song best showcases how he wants to be different to other mainstream rappers.

The opening tells it all:
I ain't tryin to be the greatest,
I used to hate hip-hop,
Because the women degraded.
How is this not number 1 along with the cool, easily the best with song ever covering a range of topics. These sort of songs make Lupe stand out from the crowd and make him one of the best a must listen
[Newest]ANOTHER great track everybody gets a case of the hurt me souls

17Prisoner 1 & 2
What can I say, Lupe shows the most artistic way to handle a touchy social issue here. The contrasting first and second verses idea is just genius
Probably the best song on Tetsuo and Youth. There is no holding back on this song.

18Beautiful Lasers (2 Ways)
Got me through my rough times! Best Lupe song for sure!

19The Cool
This is by far and away Lupes most creative, most complex, and best song. I guess it isn't number one on anyone's list because it takes an deep, thoughtful mind to pick up what he is putting down on this song. You may think you know what he is talking about, but you really don't. It took me years to finally understand the complex nature of the song. So complex that this song is the end of the Album titled "The Cool" In which the song "The Cool" off of Food and Liquor is used to tell a story in the album "The Cool" His best work by far and it isn't even close.
This and hurt me soul are 2 of the songs that make Lupe the best, these 2 songs are too good that they are both rated out the top 10, and the reason is most people these days don't care the lyrics as much as they should people can't comprehend these songs they are so good you have to listen to it so many times to understand what he means. They are the most creative, complex, beautiful songs you could have, they are literally pieces of art
This and Deliver off Tetsuo and Youth are 2 of Lupe's best songs. It's unbelievable that this is #19 and Deliver is on page 4. Apparently if artists say something meaningful in their songs people are scared away... Thank God Lupe did not Dumb Down this song.

20American Terrorist
I love this song I know it almost completely by heart! I think its under rated and people might nor appreciate the message but its phenomenal
Listen to this song one time and you'll learn more about American History than you did throughout all of High School.
Just listen. That's all I can say
