    i relate to songs like ghetto story, hustlaz song and a whole lot of other shit lupe makes...dude raps about hood shit from a different point of view, focusing on the struggle and how fucked up shit really is. i like that shit, cuz i look at shit from that perspective...i'm totally aware of how fucked up our society is and i like listening to people that see the same thing i see and spit it in a intelligent way.

    i dont pop pills....but i smoke weed and drink to cope and release so i feel what u saying...too each his own. all i'm saying is just cuz u think he sucks cuz u can't relate doesn't mean he isn't a talented rapper.

    d12 aint bad either....i fucks wit proof and a couple tracks them niggaz had.


    bottomline is K3 just open ur mind dun

    LUPE FIASCO LYRICS

    "The Cool"

    [Talking]

    Yeah...

    Yeah...

    the cool.

    Turn me up
    uh-huh..
    yeah..

    He came back
    In the same suit that he was buried in
    Similar to the one his grand father was married in
    Yes... he was still fresh to death
    bling, two ear-rings, a chain laying on his chest
    He still had it cuz they couldn't find it
    And the bullets from his enemies sat like two inches behind it
    smelled the Hennesy from when his niggas got reminded
    and poured out liquor in his memory, he didn't mind it, But...
    He couldn't sip it fast enough
    So the liquor was just filling the casket up
    floating down by his feet was the letter from his sister
    Second Grade hand-writing simply read "I miss ya"
    Suit jacket pocket held his baby daughter's picture
    Right next to it one of his man's stuck a swisher
    He had a notion as he laid there soaking
    Saw that the latch was broken, he kicked his casket open
    and he...

    [Chorus]

    This life goes passing you by
    It might go fast if you lie
    You go and you live then you die...

    O-oh-oh-ohh

    If life goes passing you by
    Don't cry
    If you breaking the rules
    Making your moves
    Paying your dues...
    Chasing the cool

    Not at all nervous as he dug to the surface
    Tarnished gold chain is what he loosened up the earth with
    He used his mouth as a shovel to try and hollow it
    and when he couldn't dirt spit... swollowed it
    Working like a.. hmm.. reverse archaeologist
    Except.. his buried treasure was sunshine
    So when some shined through a hole that he had drove
    it reflected off the gold and almost made son blind
    He grabbed on to some grass, he climbed
    Pulled himself up out of his own grave and looked at the time
    On the watch that had stopped six months after the shots
    That had got him in the box wringing Henny out his socks
    Figured it was hours because he wasn't older
    Used some flowers to brush the dirt up off his shoulders - so..
    With a right hand that was all bones and no reason to stay
    Decided to walk home
    so he..

    [Chorus]

    He begged for some change to get him on a train
    "Damn that nigga stank", is what they complained
    Tried to light the blunt but it burst into flames
    Caught the reflection in the window of what he became
    A long look... Wasn't shook, wasn't ashamed
    Matter fact only thing on his brain was brains.. yeah
    And getting back in his lane, doing his thang
    First he had to find something to slang
    Next stop was his block
    It had the same cops
    Walked right past the same spot where he was shot
    Shocked that some lil' niggas tried to sell him rocks
    It just felt weird being on the opposite
    They figured that he wasn't from there
    so they pulled out and robbed him
    with the same gun they shot him with
    Put it to his head and said "You scared ain't ya?"
    He said: "Hustler for death. No heaven for a gangsta."

    [Chorus]

    He used his mouth as a shovel to try and hollow it
    and when he couldn't dirt spit... swollowed it
    Working like a.. hmm.. reverse archaeologist

    and i gotta pick this one up from where ol'boy left off with the 1st verse...cuz this song gets BETTER as the verses go on...the 3rd verse is lightyears ahead of J5's whole cataloge...

    I had a ghetto boy bop, a Jay-Z boycott
    'Cause he said that he never prayed to God, he prayed to Gotti
    I'm thinkin godly, God guard me from the ungodly
    But by my 30th watchin of "Streets is Watchin"
    I was back to givin props again and that was botherin
    By this uncomfortable as a untouchable touchin you
    The theme songs that niggas hustle to seem wrong but these songs was comin true
    And it was all becoming cool
    I found a condom on the ground that Johns would cum into and thought
    What constitutes a prostitute is the pursuit of profit then they drop it
    The homie in a suit pat her on the butt, then rock it
    It seems I was seein the same scene adopted
    Prevalent in different things with the witnesses indifferent to stop it
    They said don't knock it, mind ya business
    His business isn't mine and that nigga pimpin got it

    They took my daughter, we ain't got no water
    I can't get hired, they cross on fire
    We all got suspended, I just got sentenced
    So I got noooo place to gooo
    They threw down my gang sign, I ain't got no hang time
    They talk about my sneakers, poisoned our leader
    My father ain't seen me, turn off my TV
    'Cause it huuurts meee soooul

    So through the Grim Reaper sickle sharpening
    Macintosh marketing
    Oil field augering
    Brazilian adolescent disarmament
    Israeli occupation
    Islamic martyrdom
    , precise
    Yeah, laser guided targeting
    Oil for food, water, and terrorist organization harborin
    Sand camouflage army men
    CCF sponsorin, world conquerin, telephone monitorin
    Louis Vuitton modelin, pornographic actress honorin
    String theory ponderin, bullimic vomitin
    Catholic priest fondlin, pre-emptive bombin
    and Osama and no bombin themThey breakin in my car again, deforestation and OVERLOGGIN and
    Hennessy and Hypnotic swallowin, hydroponic coughin and
    ALL THE WORLDS ILLS, sittin on chrome 24-inch wheels, like that

    They say I'm infected, this is why I injected
    I had it aborted, we got deported
    My laptop got spyware, they say that I can't lie here
    But I got noooo place to gooo
    I can't stop eatin, my best friend's leavin
    My pastor touched me, I love this country
    I lost my earpiece, I hope y'all hear me
    'Cause it huuurts meee soooul
