Video: Lupe Fiasco – MTV Mixtape Daily

Lupe tells MTV Mixtape Daily he made Enemy Of The State because they snubbed him on their Hottest MCs list.

It was super easy. I did it in two days. Lasers was almost all done… the super ‘I’m the best MC’ — lyrical — there’s wasn’t really room for that on this album. I was like, ‘Let me give my fans that. Let me let them know that I’m still capable of that. Let me show MTV I’m hot too.’ Kept it short. I felt, if you’re nice, you don’t need an hour. You don’t need one hour and 35 minutes. You don’t need 100 freestyles every week. You need a nice demonstration of what you’re capable of doing very effectively, and you step back. Leave you wanting more. Sometimes the best part of the movie is the trailer.

There’s some mini-videos for “Turnt Up” & “Say Something” in this segment, during which he mentions that he made both without even hearing the originals.

I just heard the beat and ‘Say Something,’ the freestyle came out. I could have kept going. I could have rapped over that for 20 minutes.

    ^D-block told me his last project was good.


    no shots at him, but Jorge loves almost all music …
    You have a bamma block so i don’t think you’ll be too receptive to any Khaled LP’s

    His last LP had some joints but the one before that (his 2nd) was dope…
