Aight y'all I take back lets just say "We The Best!"
Meaning me, me, me, I, me, me AND me the best!

[Verse 1]
My ego on zero
It's just that my re-al's on hero
My confidence on Michael but my pride is on Tito
I ain't paid dues? What is this receipt 4?
Boy said, "With Lasers you kinda stumbled some and you're only as good as your last record."
I said, "So I guess I'm only as good as being number 1!"
I asked him "What's your success measurer? The message or the register?
In the end you got a win-win, only thing I lost is my competitors."
He said, "Yeah but Lasers was your worst and nothing like ya first."
I said, "Well that's me vs. me and your growth is nothing like your birth."
He said, "You're a lame dumbed down sellout only known for talking out your ass."
I humbly nodded in agreement and asked 4 more ketchup in my bag
I left thinking how I used to be in his shoes
Writing verses flipping burgers
Now I serve the world pearls from socio-political menus
And how I could never back, only because I never left
So if you find a few diamonds in your sandwich then you know who was the chef
A Rolex in your fries, a chain in your salad
A range rover in your soup and a extra slice palace
People, Friend of L-U-P-End cuz!

Lupe Fiasco

The Chicago born Wasalu Muhammad Jaco first tasted success when he featured on Kanye West’s hit “Touch the Sky”, a track that shortly preceded his real breakout, his 2006 debut album Lupe Fiasco’s Food & Liquor, and he never looked back. He has established himself as one of the greatest urban wordsmiths of all time, with Genius even dubbing him the ‘Proust of Rap’.

While he’s now regarded of one of the 21st Century’s Hip-Hop greats, he wasn’t always a fan of the genre, initially disliking it due to the prominence of vulgarity and misogyny within it. In his late teens, he aspired to make it as a lyricist. In his early twenty’s, he met Jay-Z, who helped him sign with Atlantic Records in 2005. The following year, he released his debut album (Lupe Fiasco’s Food & Liquor), which was met with acclaim from fans and critics alike, as did his sophomore effort, Lupe Fiasco’s The Cool.

The following eight years of his career saw far less output than many would’ve anticipated. This can be partly attributed to his struggles with Atlantic Records. The executives wanted him to sign a 360 deal; however, as he refused to do so they instead shelved his already completed 3rd album, Lasers, and wouldn’t promote him as they had previously. The overseers at the label also interfered with his music (as they had tried to do with his fan-favorite track “Dumb it Down”); subsequently effecting the quality and sound of his third and fourth albums.
