Currently, 50 Cent holds the crown for moving 827,000 duplicates of Get Rich Or Die Tryin’ his rookie year. Back in ’93, Snoop Dogg set the tone by scanning 803,000 units of Doggystyle.

  • Thatdude.

    That’s jus…jus..just nasty bro!

    Lupe’s best material was his old mixtape stuff. FNF Mixtape Vol. 1, Fahrenheit 1/15 Parts I, II and III. That’s pretty much where Lu’s hype stems from and all them joints are at least 4-5 years old. Even the leaked version of his 1st album was dope.

    If someone started paying attention to Lupe when Food & Liquor was officially released in Sept. 2006 then I’d understand why they wouldn’t like him. He hasn’t been at his best since late 2005, early 2006.

    I’ve heard this dude B.Dot say “if you don’t like L.L. you don’t need to comment on a hiphop blog.”

    B.Dot If you don’t think Lupe is one of THE GREATEST EVER or EVEN WORSE you “just don’t like him” for some inane poorly explained reason, YOU DON’T NEED TO post, run, advise, or have ANYTHING to do with a hiphop site.

    hold your opinions if you don’t agree. It only let’s me know you shouldn’t be here either.

    I also don’t understand where the hate on Lupe comes from… The dude always delivers, has substance, he’s not all in your face all the time, … so why hate?

  • Lupicc

    u gotta be a little retarded not to appreciate Lupe’s lyrics

  • Spillosevic

    He was talking about debut sales…get your eyes right.

  • http://www.myspace.com/blackeuroclothing dickinyamom

    yaboitone eat a dick Lupe’s for backpacking doucebags, his lyrics aren’t compelling, to me it sounds like he’s on a rant when he’s rapping, no defining lines no deep structure in his songs. How is he one of the greatest ever when he’s not even better then Kanye, Common or Talib Kweli? Three people that fall into his type of hip-hop. That leads me to believe your about 16 and don’t know shit about hip hop

  • t-dub

    lupe is aight. hes a solid mc. he has has good and bad days

  • Respect Where Its Due

    I see where your comin from; but imo Relapse was by far the worst… (not including Refill). I really hope Em. changes his direction on Relapse 2…

    Do you know, THREE people post on here? myself, YN, and Big Homie. Clearly, it wasnt ME that wrote that nor Big Homie…so who else COULD it be?

  • Be Real

    Lupe is wack, period. I don’t give a fuck if you got lyrics, if you don’t got “it”, then you don’t got it. Plain and simple. This nigga thinks every one of his lines is gold or some shit and acts like he’s fuckin’ superior, I ain’t fuckin’ with that. YN is right, what has he dropped that is a classic? nothing. Just cuz a nigga is different like Lupe doesn’t mean he’s ill, it just means he’s different, and in his case, he’s tryin too hard.

  • Roller man

    what about lil wayne and didn’t kanye scan 900+ when he battle curtis…. lil weezy just sold a milli in a week

    “I don’t give a fuck if you got lyrics, if you don’t got “it”, then you don’t got it. Plain and simple. This nigga thinks every one of his lines is gold or some shit and acts like he’s fuckin’ superior”

    Seriously?
    So just because he brings something different in the game than flashing ice, rapping about materialism,… that’s acting superior?

    That’s also what they said about Kanye at first.

  • trex

    Kanye was different – he talked big but then his music backed it up. People could relate to his music and so they supported him. They know about his ego but his music speaks to the people.

    The thing with Lupe is that his flow is hot and he’s got meaningful things to say but it’s like he over-complicates his delivery to the point that the message is lost. It’s not every song but you know it when you hear it. That being said, that style works well for storytelling songs but not as well for other types of tracks.

    For example, check the song Dumb It Down. I got what he was trying to do but then he gets so arrogant by intentionally trying to rhyme above everyone’s head. Hate to break it to you guys, although he ain’t talking about guns/sex/hoes, using obscure references in lyrics doesn’t automatically make him dope or clever. It’s just makes his music complicated and sometimes boring.

    Basically, I view Lupe Fiasco as the Hip-Hop equivalent to an art film that fans say is the best film they’ve ever seen. But the reality is art films take a lot of time and patience to pay attention to and in the end it isn’t necessarily better than a blockbuster film.

  • Porch Monkeys

    Lupe is one of the best emcees of his time like Jay, Em and Nas was for theirs. Like Pac and Big was for theirs. Like Rakim, Kool G Rap was etc. etc.

    Niggas that don’t like him probably fuck with Gucci Mane that porch monkey, dumb-nigga music.
