Lupe Fiasco’s Words I Never Said Controversial Lyrics (Listen!)

Lupe Fiasco has promised controversy, nope not charity, not happiness – big ole controversy. Because no one has NEVER done that before in music.

Lupe Fiasco just released his second single from his much anticiapted album, Lasers. The song was produced by Alex da Kid and features Skylar Grey on the hook. Lasers is scheduled to be released on March 8, 2011.

I have to say though, the song is amazing – still the fiasco we know and love but with much harder lyrics.

Here’s the single:

Here’s a snippet of the lyrics from the first verse below:
[Lupe Fiasco]
I really think the war on terror is a bunch of bullshit
Just a poor excuse for you to use up all your bullets
How much money does it take to really make a full clip
9/11 building 7 did they really pull it
Uhh, And a bunch of other cover ups
Your childs future was the first to go with budget cuts
If you think that hurts then, wait here comes the uppercut
The school was garbage in the first place, thats on the up and up
Keep you at the bottom but tease you with the uppercrust
You get it then they move you so you never keeping up enough
If you turn on TV all you see’s a bunch of “what the f-cks”
Dude is dating so and so blabbering bout such and such
And that aint Jersey Shore, homie thats the news
And these the same people that supposed to be telling us the truth
Limbaugh is a racist, Glenn Beck is a racist
Gaza strip was getting bombed, Obama didn’t say shit
Thats why I aint vote for him, next one either
I’ma part of the problem, my problem is I’m peaceful
And I believe in the people.
What do you think of the new Lupe Fiasco single?

  1. What I think it is that it’s not accurate to call a man’s words of truth “controversial”…. It’s filled with accurately proven facts.
    That is not controversy. That is truth, that is fact.

  2. well said.

  3. Well, IMO Lupe speaks the truth in most of his lyrics.

  4. lupe for president!!!

  5. @ImMe I love how you phrased that.

    It’s said how truth as Lupe said in the third verse is not accepted when it hurts.

    God Bless You Lupe, the words in which you are saying live, are the same words everyone is scared to speak.

    <3 Love, for the true listeners.

  6. I think arguing the truth of his lyrics isnt the point.Those are his opinions whether you believe them or not they arent necessarily the driving idea behind the song.The song is about saying what you think,expressing your opinions and voicing your beliefs.Its about regretting not doing so,and aobut how peoples voices can change things,but nothing will ever change if you stay silent.

  7. well imo.. songs dope, and lupe is my artist.. but i wud give this song more respect.. if the song was called actions i never took because those words have been said before, not trying to downplay lupe.. glenn beck is a racist, limbaurgh is a racist..duh jus turn on CNNN.. third verse was chills, but song is good.. but the title is misleading.. if u talk the talk, u might as well walk the walk… he should be an activist, like immortal technique, pac che de gueverra.. cuz talk is cheap

  8. I love it biggest # 1 fan

    It just makes me so happy that someone would make a song like this <3 thanks Lupe

  10. how can you call these controversial lyrics? getting at the truth is controversial? the truth itself it controversy in its own, all the hidden secrets that the high class people are keeping away from the people of the world. and the lack of action being taken to stop the things going on it the world. Lupe speaks the truth and is taken the game to a level that has never been seen before hence why i love lupe.

  11. Guys, Lupe Fiasco HIMSELF called the lyrics “controversial”. The article is just following through with Lupe’s own words.
    Also you guys are seeing the wrong connotation of controversy. I’m bad at explaining, and Lupe speaks punny. So I’m not going to explain the connotation he is going for since I do not know how to do it in a clear and concise way.

  12. Amuuuricaaaaa says:

    Well you know, maybe for MTV these lyrics really are “controversial” aka not consistent with the owners’ agenda. They are very true words though.

  13. I’m not so sure most of you understand what controversial means, or for some reason you all seem to think that controversy implies lack of truth, when it has absolutely nothing to do with that. Something can be true AND controversial, in fact many times true things are controversial.

    controversial: giving rise or likely to give rise to public disagreement

  14. I think this new album is all about the truth, Lupe has all my respect, just for the fact that he chose to not comform and stick by his own beliefs. To me that just shows me what his made up of. Power to him!

  15. Well said Anon.

  16. muslim4 lyf says:

    Its great dat someone actually says something then cover up da truth

  17. great song 🙂 truth be told
    best rapper

  18. Gaza strip was getting bombed, Obama didn’t say shit
    Thats why I aint vote for him, next one either..

    wow 🙂 🙂 🙂 no words he;s right!!

  19. lupe fiasco is the best artist, the only one not afraid to say the truth no matter how controversial it is, the only one who seems to care about what’s going on in the world, the only one who doesn’t keep singing about women, cars, money, grudges and sex…
    and that’s why he’s the best.

  20. The truth is spoken in this song it’s all facts no one can get mad at the truth, thats all i can say…
