This song was just incredible, but I noticed that so many people were putting down the instrumental saying it was crap. Really? I think people today are too used to hearing that Young Money type of crap that they can’t appreciate the greatness of it. I felt the instrumental was really catchy, it fit the hook really well. Now the hook actually has a weird yet creepy sound, I had to listen to it a couple times to actually understand what it said. But you know what, I like this style from Lupe, it’s just a breath of fresh air compared to the crap I usually hear.
Lupe just delivers nothing but greatness with his lyrics, to be honest this could be the best lyrics I’ve heard from him all year. It’s just completely real, he puts so many rappers to shame, I’d consider him one of the few great rappers that are quite mainstream. My favourite of his lyrics was “Everybody, everywhere is calling you a hero they going through the rubble, but the body count is zero. It’s all violent and bloodless, I know the government really loves this.” It really hit me and as the last couple of words in his final verse it really stood out.
This song isn’t something I would put on my iPod but that doesn’t mean it’s bad. This song is amazing and really deserves a listen, of course like I’ve said before, the instrumental isn’t for everyone but just listen to the words and you’ll understand how amazing this song really is.
