Best Lupe Fiasco Songs

The Top Ten

1 The Show Goes On

Although this was an amazing song, overall it shouldn't be in top 10. It's a free good & hype radio play song with a touch of Lupe's realism. But with everything we know Lupe is capable of, this is definitely nowhere near top 10.

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!

In no way is this even close to being his best song. Not even top 30. This album was by far his worst. The Coolest, Put You On Game, Mural, and Mazinger are vastly superior lyrically and substance-wise.

Lasers may not be the best album, but The Show Goes On is definitely the best Lupe Fiasco song.

2 Words I Never Said Words I Never Said Cover Art

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.

This song is as great as Grand master Flash: "The message" was in 1982 and like that song should one day be added to the library of congress National Recording Registry.

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!

3 Hip-Hop Saved My Life Hip-Hop Saved My Life Cover Art

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.

I've never heard a song with such a constant flow. People need to support music like this more so we can better music!

Possibly the greatest rap song of all time

This song is the 1 though

4 Kick, Push Kick, Push Cover Art

The fact that The Show Goes On, a pop rap song Lupe despised and only wrote bc Atlantic demanded a made for radio pop hit, is #1 shows most people on this site are only going by what they heard as kids on the radio; Lasers was not a project Lupe was proud of and was a catalyst for him getting out of major label control and going his own way. Show Goes On, while catchy, does not hold a great place in his legacy.

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.

Lasers, lets be honest, was pretty terrible with the exception of out of my head and the show goes on. Now this is the Lupe album.

Just an amazing song... one of the first that he ever made. It is about himself and what he does with his friends around Chicago, sakeboarding. It is catchy, with briliant rymes and is just plain old amazing. definitely. the best rapper of all time in my opinion and this is his theme song!

5 Superstar Superstar Cover Art

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 closely followed by Kick Push. Fantastic artic although I've only heard his first two albums

6 Dumb It Down

This song is one of the most complex lyrical metaphorical songs you'll ever hear. My second favourite hip-hop song of all time.

Need I even say anything?

Such a deep song

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

7 Put You on Game Put You on Game Cover Art

This song is just verses of truth slapping you in the face

Is one of the best song I wonder why is not number 3

Such an underrated track.

His best song by far

8 The Instrumental The Instrumental Cover Art

This is the best most raw shot at how kids are raised today. And how the media brain washes people

This song is so dark and introspective. It's just intense I don't know how else to describe it

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

9 Mural Mural Cover Art

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.

One of the most underappreciated rap songs- lyrical genius, Lupe's best

Easily. The man absolutely rips the song apart.

10 Little Weapon Little Weapon Cover Art

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

Should be way higher.

Yes yes wayy too low, one of my favorites here

The Contenders

11 Hurt Me Soul Hurt Me Soul Cover Art

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

In my opinion, this is Lupe's best song. It has the lyrics, the beat, the consciousness, everything. This song right here is vintage Lupe Fiasco, at his best. Ont know why thus isn't higher than it is. Smh.

12 I'm Beamin'

Most of his song are good

13 Daydreamin' Daydreamin' Cover Art

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.

This song is the on of the best song that Lupe has ever done. I have no idea why Strange Fruition isn't hear

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...

14 Battle Scars Battle Scars Cover Art

Why is this song not in at least the top 5?
Honestly battle scars is one of Lupe Fiasco's most beautiful songs. First time I heard it I got chills. And Guy Sebastian didn't disappoint either. Great song

It's 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.

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?

15 Till I Get There Till I Get There Cover Art

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 The Cool The Cool Cover Art

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.

Superb song with massive incredible flow!

17 The Coolest The Coolest Cover Art

Easily one of, if not the best, his best songs. The first verse is one the greatest verses ever written by any human being; let alone a rapper. The fact that The Show Goes On is above this is ridiculous.

Great song, can't decide if this or streets on fire should be number 1 though

Best lyrics ever. One of the best hip hop songs of all time.

The first verse...greatest of all time

18 Beautiful Lasers (2 Ways)

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

19 Streets on Fire Streets on Fire Cover Art
20 American Terrorist American Terrorist Cover Art

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

21 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!

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

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

22 Paris, Tokyo Paris, Tokyo Cover Art

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

Great song and can't help but smile when this track comes on

23 Shining 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.

How is this not in top ten?

24 Around My Way (Freedom Ain't Free) Around My Way (Freedom Ain't Free) Cover Art

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"

25 The Emperor's Soundtrack The Emperor's Soundtrack Cover Art

Hard to get, but so awesome lyrics with an amazing flow
