The Top Ten

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]"This isn't even CLOSE to being the Lupe song..."

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

3Kick 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!

4Hip-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

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

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

10I'm Beamin'

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

12Little Weapon
Way too low, this song is very powerful and has a great snare drum in the background.

13Streets On Fire

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

15Hurt Me Soul
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
Hands down best Lupe song, when you listen you fit right into Lupe's shoes. Just sit down turn on the song and listen, then you will see
[Newest]ANOTHER great track everybody gets a case of the hurt me souls

9 Minutes of lyrical destruction
Easily One of the greatest hip hop tracks!

17Beautiful Lasers (2 Ways)
Got me through my rough times! Best Lupe song for sure!

18The 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.
Superb song with massive incredible flow!
This song brought a dead guy back to life!

19American 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

20Shining Down
One of his best definetily... Amazing chorus and very catchy lyrics... I din know how come it is so down... Please vote it up... Definitely top three...
This can't be way down in no. 28!
One of his best songs ever, pity no one's heard it much
Amazing song, should be top 5 at least.

21Around My Way (Freedom Ain't Free)
A smooth song with a good flow not to mention lyrical genius one of his best. Although I do have to say to many in the top ten from lasers not his best album
It's got catchy flow (goes without saying, it's Lupe) and says something meaningful like it ain't no thing.
"Rich man, poor man, we all gotta pay because freedom ain't free 'specially round my way"

22The Coolest
Best lyrics ever. One of the best hip hop songs of all time.
Great song, can't decide if this or streets on fire should be number 1 though
The first verse...greatest of all time

23Super Lupe Rap
How is this not higher? This was amazing...

24Paris, Tokyo
This should definitely be in the top 10. Just listen to the lyrics. I would love to spit such a song to my girl

25The Emperor's Soundtrack

26Prisoner 1 & 2
Probably the best song on Tetsuo and Youth. There is no holding back on this song.

27All Black Everything
Pretty deep song, at first glance seems to be against his message as racist, but has a deeper meaning than what is first perceived.
Oh my! How is this not top 3. Its an incredible tune. The lyrics have insane depth and the instrumental is great also

Why?.makes sad to see this track not somewhere at the top.hear lupe brings us down to earth, he shows his intimate side and makes you question what your purpose on earth is. 31 is my number 1
Why is this legendary song not on the list. Real lupe fans know that this song is crazy!
come on vote for it
Or is it something they can never believe.

29Bitch Bad
Bitch bad, woman good, lady better... They misunderstood!

30Lamborghini Angels

31Letting Go
Most underrated Lupe song of all time
Love the introspection on this one
Best Song Ever. Very sexy song...
[Newest]So good, so underrated

Its a shame that such a beautiful song is so low on the list.
Seriously, why is this song not in the top 10?

33Go Go Gadget Flow
Fiasco's flow in Go Go Gadget Flow along with his wordplay and execution is absolutely incredible. I encourage everyone to listen to the song with the lyrics in hand.

34I Gotcha

35I Don't Wanna Care Right Now

36Ital (Roses)

37Break the Chain
So underrated. Beautiful song

38He Say, She Say
Lupe has so many good songs that you can't even name them in any order. But I would listen to this over "The Show Goes On" any day
It's incredible that this song is so low..
It's a shame that this song doesn't get more exposure. It's number 1 in my book.

39Out of My Head
By far his best song

40Audubon Ballroom
Just a feel good song.

41Gold Watch

42Kick, Push II


44Say Yeah

45Muhammad Walks

46Old School Love
"Fire in your words but you got no warmth in your vocals"
I would like to think it's so low because its new. It's a great song.. And with Ed Sheeran on the chorus.. Oh the feels. Had it on repeat for a long while
Vote vote vote
First track off Tetsuo And Youth. Just highlights his ability and lyrical genius!

Love this song so much! So deep, and the three stories he tells are all touching. It leaves me with goosebumps every time, especially at the end.
This song needs to be in the top 10!
Great song, awesome message!

48Hello / Goodbye (Uncool)


50Switch (The Science Project)

64Happy Industries


66Never Forget You
Really what? This song is great the lyrics in this song mean something (not saying his other songs don't because they do) but wow is this song not popular or my taste is that bad. Okay whatever
This song is just amazing! It should be in the top 10 at least, very undderrated. ITS AMAZING!

67Thorns & Horns

68Animal Pharm
One of the greatest verses of all time on this song

Lyrical wordplay at its finest

70Adoration of the Magi
