At least I think it’s called Fire. Completely different from this “Fire.”

UPDATE:
Lupe says it’s not a MTV list diss

    *daps to the dapable*

  32. Danielson a.k.a. My Blog Game Proper™ Says:

    sure it works now cos he’s prolific and a legend so the lethargic attitude on stage makes for a great performance, even feeds into his boss status a little.

    but it doesnt make him a great performer, cos when he was just another rapper he was doing the same shit and it was horrible.

    thats all i’m sayin, but niggas on here talkin bout he one of the best performers ever and thats bullshit.

    thats all i’m sayin

    i can dig that.

    Lupe the best..easily

  59. Pecklo Says:

    note: no stannery, just looking for clarification

    jay has an amazing band, fucking sick collection of hits, and sells out shows around the world to diverse audiences. how does he not qualify as a dope performer? what do you want? niggas with 2 hits in a small venue rapping over a recorded track with 15 weed carriers on stage wearing towels and holding mics?…that’s glorified karaoke. hate is killing more niggas than cancer. even if you don’t care for an artist you can’t legitimately find fault with areas in which they excel.

    [...] Lupe Fiasco: “Fire”  ”Wish ya well, like a wishing well…” Lupe Fiasco samples Jimi Hendrix and vocal effects, not auto-tune, distortion is the drug of choice for Lu.  Supposedly this is a response to Lu being off the Hottest Emcees list from MTV.  It’s like he’s saying, “I’m so hot, you’d want to just stand next to me to catch my glow..” Get it?  I thought about putting Lupe Fiasco in the hottest emcees list, but then rethought.  The logic being that to me, the hottest emcees are those that go the longest distance in the shortest amount of time.  Has Lupe elevated from where he was in 2008?  He’s near the top no doubt, but not that much ground was made, not more than someone like Drake who went from being the unknown feature on a Mickey Factz track to f**king Drake…Anyway, more of my thoughts on the Hottest Emcee list are forthcoming.  Download “Fire” right here.   Spotted at Nahright.  [...]

  73. Raymond Simmons Says:

    Anyone remembers the post that Eskay had on Atlantic,concerning Lupe,when they were trying to sue him in 2006? lol

    I would link you all, but i cant even remember where to find it. It was the funniest post i read all year.

  74. Pickyhead Says:

    beat is hot… minus Lupe, minus the lame chorus (wtf?), add a rapper that can ride the instrumental equals a hit.

  75. Galleo Says:

    Some of these comments are puerille….or, for the less educated that needs their meanings mouth-fed to them….stupid. ^^^^ “minus Lupe”……If half of yall would read some books it wouldnt take you 1000 listens to get something. Lupe is a triumph.

    lol… ‘If half of yall would read some books…’ Books? If you understood the origin, premise and culture of the music, you’ll realise just how silly that statement is.

    [...] Lupe Fiasco “Fire” [mp3] Why are Jimi Hendrix samples always so literal? Fat Joe jacks “Hey Joe” and Foxy Brown takes “Foxy Lady” because – doy – their names are in there, and Lupe Fiasco snags “Fire” to talk about (or rather, give evidence of) how he is… wait for it… fire. I’m not complaining tho, Wasalu’s tune lives up to the name. I wish I never knew this was a response record to the MTV “Hottest MCs In The Game” list (PS: who cares…), he sounds great, effortless like the pre-Food & Liquor tapes. Gotta give an honorable mention to Harlem’s Cash for his own fun “Fire” flip (mashed with 2 Live Crew no less) from a few months back, “I Wanna Rock.” [...]
