Edit: And if Chilly never got arrested, Lupe would have been as big as current day Kendrick. Easily. He was out here on his own. Chilly was the Top Dawg to Lupe, for anyone that doesn't know. He had all of the street connections, was close with Jay and that's how he connected with Lu, etc. Him going behind bars was a bigger trajectory altering for Lupe then Jay last minute backing out of his president deal at Atlantic... Which was the reason Lu signed there in the first place.

Without Lupe and his career path step by step as it went... There'd be no Kendrick and it's not debatable... He has the highest of the highest possible respect from Jay and Nas... Was in a "group" with prime Kanye and prime Pharrell.... He has at least two indisputable classics...  Is the most commercially successful super lyrical miracle rapper ever as well... That's where he ranks.

Even though Lupe deserves some of the blame, it's sad his career didn't end up where it should have. Dude is one of a kind, one of the best skilled rappers ever and was a breath of fresh air for a lot of us rap fans when he first came out.

I really doubt the ***** wouldn't have made a comeback at some point but if he had only released F&L. The Cool and LupEND like he had originally wanted he'd be placed much higher in most peoples minds

He's released some of my favorite hip hop songs oat, "Hip Hop Saved My Life" prob being my number one from him

He's in my top 15

He said nobody else ever loved em (him)
Thats why he get high enough to go touch the heavens above em
Vividly remembers every pipe
Every needle that stuck em
Every alley he ever slept in
Every purse that he snuck in
Every level of hell he's been to
And the one that he's stuck in
The one he cant escape
Even tho it's of his own construction
Maybe you can relate
Maybe you one of those that just doesn't
Maybe he doesn't care
Loves to allow these demons to come in
With no
