New Music: Lupe Fiasco “Jonylah Forever”

jonylah

We live in such a cruel world. Lupe sends his condolences to the family and friends of 6-month old Jonylah Watkins, who died this week in a shooting in Chicago. Says Lupe:

She lives as long as we do. She will live forever. God bless your soul and the family you left behind. We Love You.

Not a song but a life. Be respectful. Please keep negative comments to yourself. #lovelifechitownforever

  • Hk

    @Slicksick your on Dope huh?

  • FTW

    Respect Lupe.

    At the very least he’s writing about the issues going on in the community he’s from; the community he’s connected to indefinitely. Other people (mcs in particular) from Chicago that have public platform really don’t say shit or express any concern for their city or their people.

    I’m dealing with the issue Lupe’s writing about. As a graduate student, should I go for the money or stay and actuality help the community for a fraction of the salary?

    In that moment when you gave your help, bet you didn’t know that you saved yourself (c)

    While Lupe continues to up the standards of HIp Hop with his stellar releases such as “Blue Light” and this song, Elliott Wilson will be playing 2 hours of Future’s shitty music

    2 hours?

    Mind you , he has 3 songs that are “club hits” and 2 of them he’s just the guy who “sings” the hook.

    The other 1:50 will be dedicated to the flop album that no one bought

    oh well

    Man… what a song. I didn’t know about this but thank to Lupe I’m aware.

  • Inside I’m Ice!, Outside I’m Lava!

    It’s amazing how Ye complains about be on a list, but as a representative of the Chi, he don’t say shit about the senseless killings, come on Ye take your skirt off & wear the pants be a man speak to these young dudes they need someone on the world stage to speak for them, they help nigga!

  • Los

    amazing work.

    i’m surprised something like this surfaced on a website full of stupidity and ignorance.

    i’m surprised the people that run this trash network can acknowledge true musical talent through the sound of money being exchanged for their souls.

    would have thought such a sound would be deafening.

    i guess not

  • Erick

    There’s no comparison to this song with what’s being played on most radio stations.
