That doesn't seem like a very enjoyable way to listen to music.

If you appreciate lyricism, it's very enjoyable.

If you listen to rap for beats, Lupe is not the artist for you.

True, but he's still just as deep as he was lyrically, though he's not trying as hard to be technical.

I listen to loads of different kinds of music, for me personally Lupe is 97% lyrics. I actually usually find his hooks pretty bad/boring but his verses are crazy and because of that I can really enjoy his music anyways. I just have a thing for words I guess, I can really enjoy poetry as well.

There's no middle ground? Having no idea what a dude is talking about and having to sit down and analyze it is not for me.

Sure there is, I'd say.. J. Cole, Kid Cudi and Kanye would be somewhere in between.. They can rhyme but they're are not great lyricists.

You don't have the same appreciation for a deep lyricist that I do. Not knocking you, just saying.

Right because you understand everything you see/read/hear immediately. (Well considering the music you like, that might actually be a fair assumption as there is so little thought put into it.) Why waste hours of your time trying to figure out what he's talking about if somebody else has already done it? Besides, sometimes I have different or extra interpretations to his lyrics along with, say, rapgenius'.

Not sure if you're retarded or trolling (probably both), but you need to find yourself a dictionary and look up the word appreciate.

Al, you seriously need to leave that "i'm just into underground, unknown artists" sh!t.
Guys like Future, Lil B and most of the things that you hear will never be 1/1000 of what Lupe is in music.


But in terms of the thread subject i miss Lupe Fiasco's Kick Push, Sunshine, And He Gets the Girl, Switch type of music.
But, again, this is still very enjoyable .. i like this.
