Lake said:Well, to me, Lupe is the best lyricist to ever touch a mic. Yes that big of praise. Kanye's ability to transform the direction of the genre sound wise makes him far above anybody in hip hop right now musically and vision wise. Lupe, like Nas, suffers from lack of quality beats to spit on. But dear lord Lupe is so damn vicious on the mic. His punchlines and metaphors go over my head to the point I have to google the references. Kanye's production is ahead of the curve. HE is the only hip hop act besides Andre 3000 who have this spontaneous vision that rise above the hip hop genre.
Synopsis said:I see. While I don't put Lupe as GOAT yet, I definitely can see the reason for putting him there. I have also found myself googling his references. I basically agree with 99% of what you said
Because Kanye is a musical genius. Lupe is a lyrical geniusNewlopw said:How is it not close?
