    I know there are other Lupe threads, but I figured I would make one that we can post all of the news and not just have 9001 threads about every little thing he does :lol:


    So, now that the iTunes Pass is up for LASERS, have you guys heard Never Forget You with John Legend? I just listened to it and I definitely think it is probably one of the strongest tracks he has done in awhile.

    I got the pass. I've had Never Forget You on repeat all day. I love it.

    What's that? You want me to rank the 3 released songs so far? Fine.

    1. The Show Goes On (sucker for the hook and it gets me pumped up) 9/10
    2. Never Forget You (Almost as good as The Show Goes On. More of a chill track but that's not a bad thing) 8.5/10
    3. Words I Never Said (Awesome sounding track, but the 9/11 thing still irks me a little. Also this thing about Diet Soda killing brain cells. I mean c'mon now. But Skylar's part is great.) 8/10

    Based on these three songs, this album is going to be the best release so far this year.

    Never Forget You, is definitely my favorite of the 3 released songs so far. There's nothing about it that I don't like. I hope it becomes a single, really looking forward to the album, thank god it's finally coming out.

    Not gonna lie, Never Forget You kinda reminds me of Puff Daddy's song I'll Be Missing You :lol:

    So he's essentially saying he spent the past couple of years fighting to release an album with only four sincere tracks on the thing? Hah. I'll try to take that with a grain of salt because at this point it's safe to say he probably doesn't always engage his brain before he talks.

    Yeah if you get the itunes pass you get a new track every week before the album drops.

    Edit: This is a sick freestyle http://www.lupefiasco.com/news/6dd616-lupe-fiasco-x-sway-monster-freestyle/
