Best Song By Lupe Fiasco!

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

This is one of the best songs to me I think he took it there for young and old could enjoy with a great message to try to make the world the best for the kids first where they may have to live the best it can be and not live in fear when they walk out that front door

If only you all knew the truth about this song and the rest of Lasers, and how Lupe despises it with a burning passion, in fact I'm sure if he saw that this song is number 1 he would be disgusted

Words I never said is about how much lupe hated the rest of layered. It was like 2 middle fingers to his record label - Thicc_Neeson

2 Words 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.

Lupe is a powerful person, a lyrical genius, each line has two deeper meanings than you initially thought there were, and you can listen to one song for weeks and not know all the things that goes through his mine. Definitely the best rapper out there, and this is definitely his best song.

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!

I find it funny that the top 2 songs on this list are from what most fans consider to be his worst album.

3 Kick, Push

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

Kick it, Push it! I love skating!

His best song in my opinion

4 Superstar

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.

This song good. I like tacos too

5 Hip-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?

This song is the 1 though

7 Mural

A mural is a collection of pictures drawn and meshed together to form a greater picture depicting the feelings and characteristics of the artist or community creating it. This is exactly what this song is, a mural of Lupe Fiasco. Absolutely Brilliant. Lupe might not be the most attractive rapper out there, but he's definitely the greatest lyricist, and this song proves it.

Personally, I think it's one of the best rap songs ever written. With all of the intense wordplay, symbolism, and imagery he put into this track, I'm shocked that it didn't get more attention. It's definitely the most impressive rap song I've ever heard. I really don't see any rapper topping this track lyrically, even Lupe himself.
Oh, and the beat is fantastic too in my opinion.

A masterpiece

8 The Instrumental

This song has the touch of Mike Shinoda in production don't forget, it gives the song a totally different atmosphere and makes it unique

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 🙌

9 Dumb 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.

10 Daydreamin'

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.

Awesome song gotta love Jill Scott with the assist

13 Battle 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 it's so low? - nishantshankar

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.

This is ridiculous that this isn't at least top 5 - MattCozadd

14 Prisoner 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

This one is my favourite. Chopper is second for me and Battle Scars third. Lupe for life!

Most underrated Lupe song. God, I love this song.

Probably the best song on Tetsuo and Youth. There is no holding back on this song.

15 Till 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

Lupe is unerrated but this song is just great

16 Streets on Fire
17 Beautiful Lasers (2 Ways)

Got me through my rough times! Best Lupe song for sure!

18 The 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.

Hands Down the best song Lupe has created!

19 Hurt 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

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

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.

This song is amazing lyrically and his beats are incredible. Love it

20 American 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
