Lupe Fiasco: Enemy of the State: A Love Story (Mixtape)

What better way to start off Thanksgiving than with the release of Lupe Fiasco’s new mixtape, Enemy of the State: A Love Story. Motivated by his exclusion from MTV’s list of the “Hottest MCs in the Game,” Lupe decided to get back in the studio and record a mixtape in efforts to get people to be like, “Look at this positive dude, the underdog. The positive one who came and murdered all these dudes.” Good work, MTV.

Rhyming over other MC’s beats, Lupe uses his smooth flow, clever wordplay, and deep lyrics to separate himself from the rest of the rappers that were on MTV’s list. His next mixtape, Friend of the People, will be coming out on Christmas.



Check the wordplay:
“She said she was a fan of mine
Knew she was New Jersey
But said that she was Anaheim”
(New Jersey Devils; Anaheim Angels)

"...This aint dissin, this is civil disobedience
How you gon’ make hip hop, without all the ingredients
Lot of mouths to feed, plus a lot of greediness
And that greed outshines the neediness
What niggas need is some question the authority and tune out all the tv shit
And we be this, so I give em all..." -The National Anthem (Track 2)
