    haters Lupe is sick....I can't wait for his new album. He is one of the Last few good rappers who doesn't rap about killing people, hoes money and drugs. Sorry if that's what most of you losers on here consider good rap why you hate on Lupe. Maybe you guys can get your children to listen to the "good" rappers as you call them. cause they would be perfect role models for kids growing or young teens. Where's the real hip hop listeners not these wannabe's who just started listening When lil boosie came out. STFU haters.
