I'm feeling this song and this dude! (Warning: contains some profanity)



"I'm fearless
Now hear this
I'm earless
And I'm peerless
That means I'm eyeless
Which means I'm tearless
Which means my iris resides where my ears is
Which means I'm blinded
But I'mma find it I can feel it's nearness
But I'mma veer so I don't come near
Like a chicken or a deer
But I remember I'm not a listener or a seer so my windshield smear
Here, you steer, I really shouldn't be behind this, clearly cause my blindness
The windshield is minstrel, the whole grill is roadkill, so trill and so sincere."

-Lupe Fiasco "Dumb It Down"

That was golden. I think I'm falling back in love with hip hop. *sigh* I hope he never decides to dumb it down. Big up Lupe!

Salaam,

Have you just discovered Lupe? If so, you are so deprived sis... check out his first album "Food and Liquor" AWESOME! He spits the truth. I am supposed to see him in concert in a couple weeks. Cant wait.

ASA,

I knew about the last CD but I didn't really care for it. I liked a few songs off of it; "Kick, Push" was my favorite. I'm feelin' this new CD more.

Ohhh, you're seeing him in concert? I'm jealous...
