Lupe Fiasco – Hello Goodbye (Live)

 

Another joint from The Cool.

Lupe Fiasco – Hello Goodbye (Live in Vegas) 

Related: Billboard article about the album.

Perhaps the oddest song is "Gotta Eat," which is apparently written from the perspective of a cheeseburger and is rife with food/life metaphors.

    ….i can understand and respect that especially to people younger than me that didn’t grow up on tribe but the thing is if people keep telling you fit their style and damn thats the sound we’ve been missing since de la and tribe, and all this wouldn’t you even out of curiosity or respect for rap music and the people who came before you at least take a listen

    and you know what he didn’t have to listen to it but he could of at least lied to us and told us he did, but honestly everytime it spoke it seemed like he was trying to start a beef with tribe like q-tip would make a quick diss track over someone else’s beat and him and lupe would be in a battle and maybe then lupe can sell more than 30,000….the nerve of that dude to clown how much tribe sold ? foh……

    How can you know who you are and where you are going if you don’t know where you’ve been?

    Lupe lost A LOT of respect with that bullshit. I’m stealing The Cool from the internets… fuck the retail.

    …..i’m saying all the people saying who cares if he disrespected tribe they old and over now, you peole are the young cats who are growing up on lupe and lets say lupe goes on to make made classics and goes down as one of the best ever one of the most important pieces of hip-hop then what if 10-20 years from now some dude comes out sounding like a 2027 lupe fiasco, only he claims he never heard him or gives a shit about him who the fuck is lupe to him

    it’s just about the music it’s about one of the very first things you are taught in life and that is respect your elders, thats in family and people who help it down for you in your position before you, it’s called common decency

    @ X– 50 Cent sold 1.1 mil in a short week last time.. Plus this time he dropped like 5 singles before the album dropped–all subpar, formulaic singles at that–Jay sold 425k without a real top 40 single, with 2 months of promo VS 50’s like 6 months of promo.

    Plus, the majority of Jay’s albums have sold in that range his whole career. 50 sold something like 800k for GRODT and 1.1 for The Massacre. FOr 50, 691k IS flopping.

    Buddy is one of my favorite songs eva! and I have listened to Midnight Marauders Once in its entirety, I was born in ’81 like Lupe and also Grew up on the Westcoast to that Gang Shit and I am pretty sure people who grew up on Tribe cant explain much about King T or Ice T’s first couple of albums does that make them ignorant or neglegible?

  112. Rey Says:

    F’real, it’s like you guys giving me shit cuz I haven’t heard some Mobb Deep and Redman joints from 1995. Does that mean I don’t really appreciate rap even tho’ I’ve done my nas, BIG, jay, Dre, Em, kanye, talib, common, and Wu homework?

    Answer is no. This is rap snobbery. Lupe dropped the ball initially, but he explained himself in a satisfactory manner IMO.

    I spent fall of 1993 bumping Cypress Hill’s “Black Sunday”.. but I won’t give anyone shit who didn’t.

    From the billboard article on Lupe:

    Throughout, dark production by Soundtrakk, UNKLE and Chris and Drop enhances the weighty themes, particularly on “Street on Fire” (about a burgeoning epidemic) and “Put You on Game.” Among the few guests are Snoop Dogg, who turns up on “High Definition,” while Fall Out Boy’s Patrick Stump serves as the producer of “Little Weapons.”

    Dude.. I sound like Will f’n Smith when I rap, but ask me if I’ve bought any of his albums. G’on. Answer? No I haven’t.

    He might sound Native Tongue (none?) influenced, but he could’ve had producers, a&r’s, cypha buddies who DID have that influence, and it rubbed off (nh) on Lu.

    I’m just sayin’, it’s not the end of the danged world. Odds are good I’ll never even listen to a Tribe album, but I’ll cop The Cool first week. No disrespect–sincerely, not in the IFux “I’d fuck your mom’s ass and jizz in her eye..No disrespect” sense.

    it’s true that Lupe OD’ed when he made the Tribe Statements… i just hope that he grows from it, sees the error in his ways and checks the music… not because he HAS to as some sort of hip hop law.. but simply because they are dope records that influenced alot of people, and alot of the people who support him.

    and yeah.. i like lupe.. F&L was dope.. and i’ll prolly pick up “The Cool” when it drops. but don’t get it twisted.. I love hip hop, but i don’t love rappers. i don’t like to get too carried away with judgements/feelings about these guys as people..

  163. RIGZ Says:

    Just cuz Lu ain’t grow up listening to that and doesn’t view it as a priority to run run run run run run and check ‘em out doesn’t mean that he isn’t a sincere, talented artist.

    ^^
    I dont care he didnt listen to the album..Lots of great artists probably havent. Its the fact he said HE NEVER WILL. Why? Just to be ignorant.

    I don’t think anyone is a hip hop head enough to say they know every important song/album. hip hop is too vast/influential.. and if you think you do know it all you’re either frontin’, or putting too much emphasis on these VH-1 “Top Hip Hop Jawns” Countdowns..

    ^^ No but if You grew up in the mid 90’s and was born in the early 80’s and consider yourself a fan of hip-hop do some of the knowlegde and listen to the albums reknowned or Applauded for Greatness i.e OB4CL, Illmatic, RD, Ironman, Chronic etc etc etc

    ^^^ Most definitely… I did that with plenty of music. In the moment, I was jamming to the dopeness that was on the radio (yeah, radio used to play dopeness) and i wasn’t buying EVERY album that dropped… until I was able to get money myself and go back and cop joints I never fully heard.

    and Dang, I copped a lot of mid 90s rap, but I really didn’t listen to the radio.. real talk, we didn’t have one with an antenna growing up.. and pops stayed driving hoopties, so a lot of times the radio ain’t work, and if it did, he’d never have let me play rap..

    Soooo MTV was my outlet and I wasn’t exactly checking for Yo! or MTV Jamz like that..

    Moms let me listen to hot 97 and that’s why I stayed copping singles.. Either that or The Box and I’d hear shit like “Flow Joe” and whatever else people in Jersey City were calling up to hear.

    That’s middle school.

    High School was more of the same, but mom’s moved into NYC so no more car rides and it was just the LIRR for me and there went hearing some stuff like Jay or whatever cuz MTV wasn’t playing him.. What were they playing? Bad Boy, Wu-Tang, 2-Pac.. and so that’s what I was checking out.

    Then XXL came along and I picked up on Bubba K and Budden and my world opened up more..

    Then the internets came along and say hello to Lupe, Blu and Exile, Saigon, Pap, Joell..

    So my evolution has been slow, but I’m making up for it. I missed a bunch of stuff ya’ll deem classics, but if it wasn’t delivered to me, how the fuck was I gonna hear it?

    @ X– I’m not against it at all.. It’s just not a big deal if I do or not. When Big Homie posted tracks from OB4CL I checked ‘em out. If someone linked me up to a Tribe album, I’d check it out.. When the homey T-Dot posts classic clips of 90s boom-bap on his blog (onmypaper.wordpress.com), I check ‘em out and I appreciate them. Hell, Ty made it a point to get me to check out Mobb Deep’s first album–the “eye for an eye” joint.. And I appreciated it..

    But if I didn’t hear those songs, what then? I’m not some kinda asshole for it, I just didn’t get around to it.

    Well then I at least gotta shot you that Midnight Mauraders album. I really think it’s one of the best albums ever

    ……co-sign…..someone go find rey midnight maurader and low end theory….trust me rey you fighting listening to them is only cheating yourself as much as i pushed you to check for mobb, fuck mobb ( II ) check out tribe….and if you do listen to them not only will it probaby inspire some shit for you but it will help you understand where all the tribe fans are coming from

    also again i have no problem with him not knowing tribe but he didn;t need to go so far out of his way to diss them either especially since he was supposed to be honoring and paying tribute to them, some people just don’t know when to shut their mouth and apparently lupe is one of them, and i aint talking bout the shorty i knew from high school with the big breastesss

    …propbably the biggest thing we fuck up everyday on here, those dudes need more credit from everyone though not just us, i remember when they were doing that MTV best groups panel ( i know its MTV who cares ) but some dudes on their were saying they didn’t belong in the top 10, luckily others smacked them upside their head and said they helped make tribe what they are, shit lupe dissing tribe would of been like tribe dissing de la talking bout why the fuck do i care what they made or how they sound who the fuck are they ? i mean i have boys who rap and everytime someone says you sound like this dude or a little like him they instantly wanna hear what your talking about, but Lupe could give a fuck less / just cause he flopped and saw no success

    Lupe saying he never listened to tribe= Justin Timberlake or usher saying…”Who the fuck is michael jackson, again?”, or Christian Slater saying, “so, is this Jack Nicholson guy any good?”

    ^^^^Floorida

    anyway, i really can give a shit what lupe thinks of tribe. bottom line is, you are asked to do someone rhyme? you don’t know it? go look it up. period. he didn’t have to listen to the whole catalogue or whatever, not even the remixes (which i say they are still the kings of that shit. oh, and De La too. NO ONE comes out with 6-7 remixes for the same song, with 6-7 different tracks for it anymore. just because you have someone else rhyme over the original beat doesn’t make it a remix. but i digress). the fact that he disrespected THE TRIBUTE and not tribe INITIALLY is the only problem i had. i don’t give a shit about who he grew up listening to or how he’s not influenced by them. him saying all that extra shit is where he lost (shout out to souls of mischief). there’s so much shit that i’m not even trying to go back and hear. but if some random, only sold 3 cds and his mother didn’t even buy the bootleg ass rapper came up to me and said he wanted me to perform his only single “The Whopper gave me the runs again” at his tribute, best believe i’m hitting the dollar store, stealing that tape to get the lyrics and flow down, and i’m tearing that shit up like i wrote it. not because i was a fan (because i’m not nor will i ever be), but because i will not disrespect that man. period.

    ^^^^

    I just think it incorporates a lot of the themes from hip-hop as a whole.. the social commentary, the personal stories, the glitz and glamour, the sex, the money, the wit..

    Again, it’s out of the albums I’ve heard.. I coulda picked Reasonable Doubt or Life After Death or The Chronic, but IMO those are all genres.

    I coulda gone with The College Dropout, but I think the eclectic-yet-cohesive production of Late Registration gives it the nod over the uniform ‘Ye beats on TCD.

    @ tyrone biggums —

    yeah i know what you mean. Tribe is a good representation of hip hop.. i love illmatic tho cause it’s SOOOOO in the middle. It’s gritty but not overly thugged out. I appreciate the lyricism and how it talks about the streets which is what makes hip hop special compared to other genres… it’s the mouthpiece for hustlers, the soul of the streets.

    hmmm… The Roots’ Things Fall Apart isn’t a bad one to start someone off with too. funny thing is, (not to bring back Juvy) but I actually have put someone on to hip hop thru 400 Degreez. Before that, all he listened to rap wise was beastie boys.

    Although I’m SERIOUS with this music shit, I understand that not every track needs to be powerful, emotional and important. There’s room for party jams, that’s how Hip-Hop (the music) began. BUT… we don’t have any powerful, emotional and important Hip Hop these days. Money-making does not encourage that…

  399. icon(trillbert arenas) Says:

    A number of tracks diverge from the conceptual theme, including “Gold Watch” and “Paris Tokyo,” on which Fiasco longs for a simpler life atop a jazzy backing track with shades of A Tribe Called Quest.

    @ Babydoll- you ever seen the Chappelle’s show parody of that bike ad? They’re all smoked out, hit the little girl in the drive thru, speed away- the voiceover says…”You shouldn’t smoke weed and operate a motor vehicle”….then, the little girl gets up, and the voiceover guy says “and if you’re 10 yrs old, you shouldn’t smoke weed before riding your bike”—f*ckin’ classic…

    Babydoll- you ever seen the Chappelle’s show parody of that bike ad? They’re all smoked out, hit the little girl in the drive thru, speed away- the voiceover says…”You shouldn’t smoke weed and operate a motor vehicle”….then, the little girl gets up, and the voiceover guy says “and if you’re 10 yrs old, you shouldn’t smoke weed before riding your bike”—f*ckin’ classic

    ^ I was dying when I saw that.

    Thats the problem right there… technology cant capture emotion if theres no emotion there… dont get it twisted you can feel the emotion of MJB and A.Keys and what not… its just not that many people are artist anymore and bring those emotions out.

    ***I was trying to explain that to wifey, yesterday, why Alicia’s vocals in “no one” aren’t polished- it’s like, she’s overwhelmed by emotion, and that makes the song raw, real..>Anthony Hamilton has that same kind of delivery…so did Lyfe before he got all annoying and overly preachy, and I stopped listening to him….lol

    my grandmother just called me with an lightly-uncomfortable phonecall

    She says “I was reading the paper, and the front page says that Atlanta has the highest rate of STD. I know you live there now…be careful…wait do you have it?”

    I’m like “no granny, but that’s disgusting. And I’m also not gay. I heard a lotta gay people have it”

    The whole time I was praying she wasn’t bout to ask “Whens the last time you got some, or when have you been checked”

    I’m at work right now for goodness sakes

    damn, that’s funny. i’m jay-z old. funny thing is, my hip hp foundation comes from listening to stretch armstrong and bobbito on those late thursday nights. now, i listened to hip hop waaaaaaaaaaaaaaay before that (the 1st song i ever heard was from kurtis blow in my mother’s backyard. DAMN). and i grew up with the melle mel shit and grandmaster flash stuff. but i did not like it to save my LIFE. and this was what i was supposed to be liking at the time. i just couldn’t get into their flow and what they were rhyming about. and let’s not get me started on the tight ass leather pants, leather bracelets with the spikes and and shit, leather boots those cats was rocking at the time (no village people). but then… RUN DMC.

    that was it for for. they fit what i was looking for, my ear at the time, and what i considered interesting. fast forward 4 years, i heard 3 feet high and rising. that was it for me. all time favorite group. then ATCQ, then i started listening to stretch and bobbito. after that the towers dropped, and i was in limbo as far as hip hop was concerned. nothing after that gave me any kind of “feel” as far as hip hop music. it just became… rap to me. i still listen to cats who come out now, but i don;t look for anyone’s cd anymore. i’m mostly downloading shit. i used to buy maybe 20-30 records/tapes/cds a year. now i’m at like… 4-5. i feel it depends on your particular time in music. i will NEVER knock a person for what they listen to or grew up on. everyone is so busy trying to push what they believe is better. i know i raise an eyebrow at what some of you consider to be good, better than, whatever (hhid was trash. fuck that. the tracks were gaaaaahbitch, and i dare ANYONE to tell me they listened to “who killed it” and didn’t shake their head). but it’s all about overall individual tastes and what helped nurture those tastes (II)…

    oh, and cam is wack…

    I tried to explain that to my ex…
    But as I think it was Nation or Phuque, said..

    “It’s like trying to teach the dog algebra”

    I listened to “Never see you again” this morning on the way to work. And now I feel the need to go buy her CD.

    You haven’t heard soulful until Alicia Keys is 5 feet away from you looking you in your eyes singing at the top of her lungs.

  421. Big Homie Says:

    I think this new Alicia Keys album is by far her best album. Not saying her others ones were not good, but I like this one the most.

  422. SecondBest21 Says:

    alicia keyes is not that great. i say this only on the strength of hearing her stuff before she dropped. it was beautiful. then someone got her an mpc 2000 for christmas. this was right before she started working on her 1st cd. it was over from there. i KNOW everyone will disagree, but you don’t know what you’re missing…

  423. Marcus McFly Says:

    Honestly please wait to hear the song first before you praise Lupe and hop all on his dick for being creative or whatever. I was just spitting jokes but saying something will be hot before even listening is the epitome of Stantastic behavior and borderline Faggotry, No Disrespect

    ^^^^^^haha your a funny guy but no im not being gay or a stan im praising lupe cause I know what the nigga can do…..I haven’t heard the song yet your right but im expecting the best out of it cause again I know how creative lupe can get thats all plus I know someone who has heard the song already he told me about it and he told me the cool is better then F & L so excuse me for sounding a bit stanish haha I just hate when ppl hate on Lu when the nigga is one of the few saving the substance of hip hop from these soulja boy and young berg niggas lol!!!

    P.S. Young Berg is the wworst rap name ever haha
