Hurt Me Soul, because it was the first song I ever heard from Lupe. it was amazing. I didnt understand it then, but it was definitely the day I chose him as the best.

You remember how I said Hurt Me Soul doesn't relate to me personally, so I dont rank it that high? That exact reason is why The Instrumental is my favorite Lupe song. Quick story about me;
When I was a sophomore in HS I caught mono, which evolved into a disease called Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. I took off from school for 3 weeks and my doctor sent me back on half days. unfortunately, my private school had a pretty strict rotation of classes that made it impossible to get the same classes every day. I'd get a couple classes every day, and then I'd be getting the rest of them 2 or 3 times a week, basically putting me further behind in most of my classes. To make matters worse, 2 of those classes were Latin and Religion, two classes I would never make use of in my life. After a couple months of going on a retarded half day schedule, my mom pulled me from the school because of how little they cared about making sure I was on a schedule that made sense. I'm 19 now and still haven't gone back to school.
Because of that, I've spent a far-more-than-healthy amount of time on the internet in those 3 years. In a sense, my life's been controlled by internet, video games, and TV, aka "the box", for those 3 years. So teh song's always struck a serious chord with me. The odd thing is though I can relate to all 3 verses, as opposed to just one. It's such a weird situation and it's always kinda scared me just how well this song's encompassed my recent lifestyle.
Outside of personal meaning though, I do think it's a great track musically, and the way Lupe flipped the two main verses is incredible to me. I know it seems simple and all, but I think it's a pretty tough thing to do while still making the verses their own verse with their own separate meanings.
You're 14?inshaAllah said:i Used to think if i listened to music i would be sinning and thus go to hell, But that was two years ago when i was like 12. Anyways, words i never said is my favourite because that changed my life style in so many ways. For one i used to never do anything creative now i wright all the time, the song gave me a vent for my frustrations. I was left alone alot, and was addicted to diet soda, ive become more aware of my eating habits since.
Other than that my favourite song is hurt me soul
