Lupe Fiasco – Words I Never Said

There are times when I think that when it comes to pure lyrics – Lupe is the best…ever.  Crazy right?  Well I am not sure Id rank him the best ever always, but certainly there are times when I think he combines wordplay and a message as good as anyone ever has.

His leaked track earlier this year had me worried, I wasn’t feeling it.  It came off corny…I can’t even remember the name of the track but it had me worried about his upcoming album Lasers…
Well he completely redeemed himself in my eyes with this track.  Great beat, great hook thanks to Skylar Grey and of course Lupe is saying things no one else would on a single…

Limbaugh is a racist, Glenn Beck is a racist
Gaza strip was getting bombed  Obama didn’t say shit

Jihad is not holy war, where is that in the worship?
Murdering is not Islam, and you are not observant
and you are not a muslim
Israel don’t take my side, look how far you pushed them

Crooked banks around the world will gladly give a loan today
So if you ever miss a payment they can take your house away

Who else is rapping like this?  That isn’t even quoting the third verse.

Here is the track:
