The emperor has returned. Lupe coming out of the grave and brushing dirt off his shoulders reverse archaeologist style.

every (good) lupe song has at least one line where its either super duper genius or im overthinking it. think time it's:

"Then what’s the flavor of the Sunday preacher’s pedophilia? Cash Rules Everything Around These Niggas"

.... CREATN?

cre·tin noun ˈkrē-tən
A stupid, vulgar, or insensitive person.

... and that's completely outside of the whole Sunday/sundae thing with the ice cream flavors.

When Lupe can rap about the shit he wants to rap about he is leagues ahead of anyone lyrically. His wordplay is ridiculous, F&LII will be an amazing album cant wait for it.

referencing wutang is obvious. but next line...
as ClassRooms Everywhere Around Me wither...

he made a new acronym for CREAM. lupe going in on this shit. F&L2 gonna be amazing. Sample TROY was a great move imo and I hope he did it to foreshadow the type of beats or songs hes going to sample on F&L2.

Judging by how I interpreted Pete Rocks tweet he is gonna flip the beat for Lupe, because he felt the producer didn't bless it right, or ask for his blessing.

ok so... Pete Rock feat. CL Smooth They Reminisce Over You. Maybe the greatest hip hop track ever released. Here is the live version so you can hear the soul.


It was sampled by Tom Scott's TODAY at 1:38:


To this day it's considered Pete Rock and maybe hip hops greatest BEAT of all time. It can't be emphasized how much producers and rappers look up to this track.

Lupe used a virtually identical beat in this song that he just released:


you should listen to the link of lupe going in that was posted earlier, he explains it, but I guess pete rock was upset about lupe recreating the beat.

Album feels weak after Lamborghini Angels.

I came into this expecting to be disappointed but fuck no I really liked it. Production is amazing. I peeped the production notes before I listened like I always do before an album and it looked pretty shitty. Only thing I don't like is that Lupe sounds a little too preachy but the complexity of his rapping make up for it to me.
