Rapper Lupe Fiasco was never one to bite his tongue, so why start now? Lupe was recently interviewed on the Jenny Boom Boom Show on Hot 93.7 and kept it all the way real regarding his thoughts on 2Chainz ft. Kanye West’s new song, “Birthday Song.” Check out what Lupe said about the track below:
“For me, Hip-Hop, we were saying this earlier, I wanna hear stuff that I haven’t heard before so like 99 percent of the Hip-Hop that I hear these days is just the same,” said Fiasco. “And it just kinda gets like, ‘What am I listening to it for?’ And for me that’s keeping it 100. It is what it is. It might be good, the beat is dope, lyrics might be whatever on a technical thing, but at the end of the day it’s like, ‘Why am I listening to this?’”
I thought Lupe and Yeezy were cool? Sheesh. Do you think Lupe’s single “B*tch Bad” is better than “Birthday Song”? Check out the two tracks below and speak on it.
I am feeling that “B*tch Bad.” I can appreciate his lyrics. And here’s 2Chainz and Kanye’s “Birthday Song:”
Which one do you like better? Either way, I hope Lupe is coming with some heat for his new album, Food & Liquor 2: The Great American Rap Album Pt. 1, which is set to drop on September 25. Check out Lupe’s full interview with Jenny Boom Boom below.
