Failure is The Cool

lupe fiasco Failure is The CoolMy mom can’t feed me. I have sex for money. This nonsense built me. My teacher won’t teach me. My master beats me. And it was all becoming cool. I found a condom on the ground that Johns would cum into and thought: what constitutes a prostitute is the pursuit of profit. They say I’m infected.

Does that all sound familiar?  It should. That my fellow fiends of ignorant wisdom, this is what is contrived through the mind of Lupe Fiasco. The Rza and Wu Tang are the masters of hip-hop. The katana wielding, chessboxin Sensais. And since they are the timeless statues of real hip-hop then Lupe Fiasco is the unappreciated salvation.

Don’t even start to recite that Superstar bullshit because that isn’t even close enough to the beacon. Forget Kanye! He hasn’t done anything worth anything since the College Dropout. Lil’ Wayne? A pure fucking commodity just like the slow destructive Nas and the once deep Jay-Z. No. Lupe Fiasco is the sort of thing real music is about. And you want to know why? Because what he says is meaningful. There isn’t this grand talk about cap busting or making a million dollars off of street corner hustling. No. That is only two lines spent in a verse of eight. There is real life bled when you listen to him. Not billion dollar lifestyles and blah blah ya ya. I get it. You wear a du-rag and drive a Bently and your eyeball has 3.6 million dollars of diamonds encrusted.

Lupe recites on human tribulations. Somethings you can relate too and others where you can simply understand. Character and reality. Like the symphony of The Roots squished into a smaller package. Genuine heartbreak, confusion and slow built understanding all swept by the long, arduous, wonderful and curious journey of our lives.

This isn’t just what hip-hop really is. It’s what music is about. Real music. Meaningful music. The sort of thing that inspires you to stand on your red kicks and just walk knowing that there is a horizon behind your back. And it is there to help make something great out of you.

Hurt me Soul-Lupe Fiasco…..This should encapsulate everything beyond I pathetically explained……….sorry for not finding a better video.
