(2)Dope Alternative ArtByShake (click to enlarge)

Alright ya'll... here is what everyone has been waiting for! Lupe comes through with a Thanksgiving treat (and I thank him for dropping it tonight as I wasn't about to stay around a computer tomorrow haha). And it looks like Christmas will bear another mix. Hit the jump for the tracklist and a split/labeled version (as the original leak was "cassette style"). UPDATE: I decided to go ahead and put together my own version of the artwork, as I wasn't really feeling the original.

01 Intro
02 The National Anthem (Radiohead)
03 Turnt Up (Travis Porter)
04 Fireman (Yoga Flame) (Lil Wayne)
05 L.A.S.E.R.S. Manifesto Interlude
06 Angels (rmx) (Dirty Money)
07 So Ghetto (Jay-Z)
08 Say Something (Timabaland)
09 Thank You (Jay-Z)
10 The One (Slaughterhouse)
11 Popular Demand (Clipse)

DOWNLOAD: Lupe Fiasco - Enemy of the State: A Love Story* | Mediafire [Split]
BONUS: Lupe Fiasco - Enemy of the State: A Love Story | Mediafire [Single .mp3]

*Lupe's camp finally sent out a split version. The only difference between theirs and mine is that they made the HP commercial a separate track on the end. I prefer my labeling skills more though haha.

  • Kwesi

    Lupe a man of his word

  • http://yungdrew.com YungDrew

    @Shake, the reason it's dope when Lu does it is because the whole tape is quality from start to finish. With that said, I'd still prefer it chopped up...

  • james

    somebody please cut it up not a fan of cassetes

  • Dangerous Vortex

    Cassette style hahahaha. I was kinda close to what I thought when I read his Twitter about that. My initial thought was he was gonna burn the tape on a cassette. I'm like, that can't be right. This is 2009 lol.

  • http://www.2dopeboyz.com Shake

    a cut up version is on it's way.

  • http://www.mikedreamsmusic.com Mike Dreams

    Hahaha.

  • PAA

    Man, i was so excited, Lu is my favorite artist and he let me down with this stupid ass "cassette" shit.. WERE IN 2009!! people dont have cassette tapes.. FUCK im so mad

  • bakingsoda

    REST IN PEACE TO WACKNESSSSSS. He murked that Fireman shit.

    Lupe!!!!!!!!! Wooo! Another on dec 25 too? woo thats nice

  • Jay

    Lu killed that 1st track did y'all see his twitter??? "Friend of the people" dropping Dec. 25th

  • Bliz

    If it's a tape shouldn't it have another side? tape is awesome but short.

  • PAA

    Why do all of my favorites have to this shit.. First Blu and now Lu

  • Jon

    Shake, please chop this up..

  • A. Sizzle

    If you have an iPod touch, label it an audio book. That way you can listen to it, go to some other shit, and it'll remember your place.

    And lets not act like Lupe is the first to do this cassette shit.

    People are hoes.

    If you were going to listen to the whole tape anyways, what's the problem right now with listening to it as one big audio file. By the time you finish listening, a chopped up version will probably be out.

    Geez.

  • H. Bomb

    Lupe just deleted the "cassette style" tweet, so LuStans will soon shut the fuck up about how brilliant it is.

    Oh, and the track "Yoga Flame" (@6:20, over Weezy's "Fire Man" instrumental) is INSANE!!!

  • jobie

    i love the thom yorke vocals

  • NAMEHERE

    WHAT WAS THE INSTRUMENTAL THAT CAME AFTER THE SO GHETTO FREESTYLE? THAT SHIT WAS HARD.

  • Lewnilli

    This mixtape is hot. Although, I'm not a bug fan of the mp3 style, it doesn't matter because these songs are sick. All I have to say is Lu killed that fireman instrumental.
    Go Ill!

  • kingvik

    I'll chop it up, but my internet is being really slow with usershare for some reason; so if someone could throw it up somewhere else you can get the it split up faster.

  • BIG RED

    It's a little late but Lupe killed that Angels track even though Diddy has like no creativity and rehashed Hov's "Where I'm From." And all these Lupe stans that are pissed about the "cassette style" obviously rnt hip hop at all. WOW!

  • Jonnie Hayward The IV

    Yea but the braggadocious style will get him more fans.. And the tape is short and sweet..I've listened to it a hundred times and still catchin lines I aint notice before..he truly is a lyricist..and that Food and Liquor content he saves for albums..on mixtapes he usually does a little braggin

  • Redface

    Awesome Thanks

    He is a creative lyricist...

    Funny, I just ran across your covers a few days ago. I really liked them, so I swapped his old shit immediately.

    It was nice to finally get some fresh cover for lupe's classic mixtapes.

    Let's see what you got on this new one!

  • bf

    I gotta give shake props though for throwing this cover together so fast. That is a testament of his dedication to his craft.

  • http://gmail kj da king

    All I have to say is that... this is by far the best mixtape this year, with some of the best rap music i've heard all year. This is that REAL shit. THis killed No Celings ( and I really enjoyed that mixtape) But good god LUpe killed em.

  • Ms. Hiphopaholic

    This made my day. Some good ass Lupe on Turkey Day. Happy Thanksgiving to all!

  • bf

    It's nice to be around people who appreciate his music and style for what it is.

    It sounds selfish to say this, but I would hate to see him go MAIN-stream, because honestly, the masses are nowhere near ready for what he has to say.

    And, as long as he keep gracing us with shit like this, I will continue to buy his CDs in bulk and go to as many concerts as possible.

    Keep it up Lupe!

  • guess who

    @big jay, 'truth' is subjective

  • The Fucking Truth

    22 straight minutes of very good hip-hop, this really is the best mixtape this year, until Christmas of course.

  • Dangerous Vortex

    People need to chill saying the length is disappointing. Remember, Lupe did say he was done with mixtapes so appreciate him coming back with this. This here is better than quitting.

    Shake, the cover you did is DOPE. 100 times better than the original.

  • GENO B

    I HAVE NOTHING ELSE TO LOOK FOWARD TO THIS THANKSGIVING NOW THAT I HAVE DOWNLOADED THIS MIXTAPE. LUPE HAS ALWAYS BEEN THE BEST MC IN MY BOOK SINCE HIS FIRST SERIES OF MIXTAPES. I NOTICE ALOT OF MCS HAVE SECRETLY BEEN TAKING NOTES ON HIS POETIC TECHNIQUES AND TRIED TO RUN WITH THEM, BUT THEY HAVEN'T MASTERED THEM LIKE HE DOES. ITS A SHAME THAT SOME OF THEM WILL LEARN FROM HIS TECHNIQUES AND WATER THEM DOWN SO A SLOW FAN BASE WILL BE MORE RECEPTIVE TO THE PUNCHLINES. THE FICKLE FANS OF RAP WILL GIVE THESE STYLE BITERS THE CREDIT FOR WHAT THEY HAVE BEEN TAUGHT BY LUPE. PEOPLE HAVE BEEN CONDITIONED TO LISTEN TO MUSIC WITH THERE EYES AND THEY HAVE VERY LOWW ATTENTION SPANS. I WOULD HATE FOR SUCH LYRICAL INNOVATION TO GO ALMOST UNRECOGNIZED LIKE IT WAS WITH HIS FIRST SERIES OF MIXTAPES.

    People keep saying that this isn't mixtape of the year, yet don't name anything better. Just because you're too dumb to follow Lupe's wordplay doesn't mean he's not a good rapper.

    yo shake i might have to hire you for some artwork haha

  • The Fucking Truth

    Oh and Stan must be the most overused word on hip-hop blogs under Hate. Just because you're a big fan of something doesn't mean you're a Stan. I doubt anybody here is writing letters to Lupe telling him how we idolize him, or naming children after him. We're just fans stating how much we enjoy his music. The only one here that has Stan status is Jonnie Hayward

    B.o.B. vs. Bobby Ray is the best mixtape this year... Lupe is a good rapper but this is not his best work...

    And calling this the mixtape of the year is the most ridiculous statement I’ve heard this year."

    I wouldn't call it dick riding, it's just sheer excitement for the mixtape release of an artist who is clearly leaps and bounds away from many other signed "hypes". Especially, with the state of music right now, this is some good shit.

    I for one am happy that i have some new Lupe material to listen. Now, I'm definitely not saying it's mixtape of the year, for me that's a toss up between Add-2 and TiRon.

    I agree with you 100%

    But, it is still good to see people finally recognizing his talent. Better late than never.

    And for all you have have really never listened to the Fahrenheit 1/15 tapes, please do yourself a favor. You know who you are.

    Hell, I remember the day I first heard "The Twilight Zone." That is still the best Lupe track of all times. Period.

    Mixtape of the year is gonna come down to personal opinion cause obviously Lupe's lyrics are still going over people's heads here

    Tape is fire, but to deem it the GOAT of all tapes or something along those lines is ridiculous, he made this to prove a point and to get people's ear ringing about him again, too many stan's around here man, internet soooooooooooooooooldiers

  • bf

    @ Trouble Maker

    Yeah,

    That "Fahrenheit 1/15 Part II: Revenge" cover you did was pretty damn ballistic.

    The argument that the lyrics are going over people heads or that the people who aren't in love with it don't get it is wrong. So because X person doesn't like the tape it means they must not get it. Great logic!!!!

    It's good to have 22 minutes of Lupe. It's good to see him trying different flows and styles. It's nice but it IS NOT THE WAY YOU ALL ARE PRESENTING IT. The hype is ridiculous...even when it's only internet hype.

    WTF?? WHY YALL COMPLAININ ABOUT the CD length? Every bar is dope and atleast there aint a bunch of FILLER and RAMBLING like Wayne's tape...I've LITERALLY listened to this a thousand times and still catching onto some CLEVER ass lines I didn't notice before..
    ENEMY OF THE STATE = Illmatic of mixtapes

  • Jonnie Hayward The IV

    AND ONLY REASON I DO ALL THESE "Lupe >"...posts is because Lupe is EXTREMELY UNDERRATED, this guy is getting slept on..already seen heads on here admitting that they slept on him and are NOW FANS...that's the whole point!!I'm here to educate those that are ignorant!!

    lol yo jonnie...that was 3 ppl who said they slept on him...if anything what you've bin sayin is as ignorant as those who admit they slept on him...damn

    and this tape was dope...can't OBJECTIVELY say its the mixtape of the year...and wth would make that statement...lupe doesn't care...he just wants his name out there and thats exactly what this tape is doing...well done lu and keep the quality music coming

  • Jaywall

    Yeah No Ceilings is better..but this tape is dope.

  • nukid

    @bb...yea failure probably was his dopest track...for me its b/w that and twilight zone....but in all truth there is so many but those to he just went lyrically OFF!!!

  • The Devil’s Advocate

    This mixtape is really good but 10 tracks where he only spits one verse in most of them (all fire btw) can't really be considered as mixtape of the year, especially when some mixtapes nowadays be sounding like albums (ex. Everybody's Nobody, Flight School, etc.)

  • http://fjfj.com bdub

    also about mixtape of the year? its only 22 minutes so idts.. its really good dont get me wrong! but the warm up was 09 right? that is real hot, Back to the Feature was real hot, shit if flight school was 09 (i think it was 08) then that is prob number 1, many good good mixtapes and cds this year, hip hop is like a new born child. had heart problems, but stayed in the hospital from 03-07, then we started getting young guns + lupe n such to come out with fire...

    wiz khalifa, wale, drake, j cole, curren$y, then we get lupe slaughterhouse(kinda) and a few others that have brought rap to greatness. this mixtape is fire.

  • Jabari Manwarring

    Damn artwork is dope nice job Shake!

  • Dangerous Vortex

    I'm sorry but whoever says No Ceilings is better than this has either not heard this tape or is just a fucking retard. Now, if it's B.o.B vs Bobby Ray up against this then that's just personal opinion of what's the better tape. Wayne spit nothing compared to what Lupe spit on this and Lupe only had a small fraction of what Wayne put out and that just shows that quality is greater than quantity. I ain't taking anything from Wayne cause he did step HIS shit up but I'll be damned or simply a retard if I say his shit was better than this when Lupe put REAL thought into crafting this tape unlike Wayne just spitting for the hell of it.

    If this isn't mixtape of the year, your suggestions have been Ketchup, No Ceilings, and Tale of Two's City V3. I would also like to add Gone Fishing to this conversation, but Lu would still take the title. Any other competition for him?

    the mixtape of the year but is gonna be hard especially since J.Cole

    EVERYBODY'S NOBODY IS NICE..but the lyrics and bars on some of these tracks on Enemy Of the State are better than full tracks on XVs...and I'm always listenin to Warm Up almost everyday..but I've never listened to it back-to-back-to-back-to-back-to-back-to-back-to-back-to-back-to-back-to-back-to-back-to-back back-to-back-to-back-to-back back-to-back-to-back-to-back back-to-back-to-back-to-back back-to-back-to-back-to-back back-to-back-to-back-to-back back-to-back-to-back-to-back back-to-back like I've listened to Enemy Of The State since last night

  • Ryan

    Sam just right click the image and copy then go into itunes and highlight all the songs from the mixtape and right click. Go to Get Info and find the small artwork box in the right hand corner. Paste into there and you're set.

  • datkid1220

    lupe said it himself thru out the mixtape

    "this is like my weaker stuff" - say somethin
    "im just acheivin buzz" - popular demand

    Yeah, I gotta say that this tape is a let down. Pretty meh, he's good at some points(namely all the lyrics you guys already diligently wrote down) and he could've picked better beats. He's better on his own shit for the record.

    I wholeheartedly agree. I had high hopes for this tape and I must say he could have come a lot harder than he did.

  • John

    Dope Mixtapes of the Year:
    B.O.B vs. Bobby Ray
    Back to the Feature -Wale
    Broken Headphones -Quest
    How Fly -Curren$y & Wiz Khalifa
    Everybody's Nobody -XV
    Super Senior -K. Sparks
    No Ceilings -Lil Wayne
    The Warm Up- J.Cole

    And i'm pretty sure So Far Gone came out this year too. Which was one of the biggest anticipated and talked about mixtapes of the year. Whether you hate Drake or you love him.

    I heard this tape twice around so far and it's pretty damn good so far. But it's true it's hard to compare this, which is like a traditional mixtape (rapping over industry beats), compared to how mixtapes have gone conceptual or with a real album like feel to it. Either way, shit is popping.

    @Shake dope artwork. Are you charging for mixtape covers? because i would like you to design if you like the idea.

  • k

    lmao @ anyone mentioning no ceilings being close to this
    jcoles was better but jesus christ some of you just dont fucking understand hip hop or something to put waynes shit anywhere near this. and its not even his best work at that

  • james

    Hum...wait...are we distinguishing mixtapes from street tapes?

    for example we've got bishop lamont about to drop team america which is probably going to take the stop but we also have j.cole, 50 cent, stat quo, bobby creekwater, & Rain.

    Which in my opinion all of them top this mixtape (yes, even 50.) I love lyrics but there's more to hip-hop than that.

    But if we're talking mixtapes as in cats rhyming over other cats beats then it's hard to argue. The only other cat that immediately springs to mind is Chance Infinite who murked most of the khalil beats he went in on.

  • http://muziksupremacy.com/forum wordtobigbird

    this tape doesnt compare with full blown mixtapes like So Far Gone and The Warm Up. Those are EASILLYYYY the two mixtapes of the year.

  • Chan

    Dope.. Highest amount of comments I've ever seen is 750+ for "Forever" - Drake ft. Kanye West, Lil Wayne & Eminem.

    Mixtape is pretty good. Some songs are way too short but I'd still say "The Warm Up" by J. Cole is the mixtape of the year.

  • marlostanfield85

    off topic, but has anyone gottena full cdq of that nas and dj khalil song “colors”, a video of the making of it was posted a few months ago

  • Will

    Still downloading, but yea, I highly doubt this will be able to overtake The Warm Up as mixtape of the year. That shit was like an album.

  • bgKang

    Wow, if Lupe is getting comments like this, and I mean as long as I've been coming on this blog, I've never, atleast to my knowledge, I've never seen 400+ comments like this, man I can't wait to see what he has up his sleeves for the next mixtape, this man has without a doubt earned his accolades in whatever this mismash of a current state of "Hip-Hop" is in at the moment. Charlie Hamilton needs to get on his grind, and fuck whoever says other wise lol.

  • Alexis

    Fuck:
    No Ceilings -Wayne.
    The Warm-Up -J. Cole
    Everybody's Nobody -XV
    So Far Gone -Drake
    B.o.B vs. Bobby Ray -B.o.B
    Back to the Feature -Wale

    Lupe fucked all of them up...lyrically. Tell me ONE 16 from one of these artists that can stand a chance with what Lupe's talking about...

    That highly anticipated Drake&Weezy was okay...but they're both over-rated.

    Wayne talks about the same shit: his swagg, fucking girls, $$$, and drugs...wtf?

    Drake: LMAO! That nigga got with Young $$$ and lost ALL of his originiality...i mean, if he's gonna sing, he could at least do it good:P

  • nukid

    @mf...i meant he doesn't care if this is the best mixtape out of all thats came out in 09 cuz ppl comparing mixtape to mixtape...obviously he cares about being the best in terms of skill, lyricism and whatnot

    and by "not care" i mean he doesn't make it a priority to have the "mixtape"...best music..maybe so...but mixtape i don't think he's worrying about that much

    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
    wait aint this the same guy that claims lupe > obama???

  • TXM

    The Warm Up and So Far Gone are completely different tho .. they had full lenght songs with original production, hooks etc .. they're "street albums". This is more like a traditional mixtape, just rhymin over people's beats and killin it. Lupe wanted to prove that he's still one of the greatest out right now, and imo he did it.

  • james

    Lupe's released one classic album (Food & Liquor) one dope album (the cool). His mixtape material (sans this) has been good. This is aight. When so many people don't do mixtapes any more there's not much to compare him to.

    Rappers moved on to street tapes (which make them better due to creativity & originality). Though I've heard tracks where Lupe has rapped over which weren't original beat but completely turned them into something original like on Where I'm From beat by Focus and Dr.Dre. He fails to do that here.

  • jobie

    @James
    when using someone elses beats what more is there besides lyrics on a hip-hop track?

  • EBrew

    I love that you can't have an original thought without being labeled a hater, or being considered asinine and wrong. Lupe's nice, no complaints on this end. Is he an artist I want on repeat 24/7? No sir. Personally, I think sometime he's just too dense with the rhymes. But the thing is that is just one man's opinion.

  • james

    I guess my point is this isn't that big of a deal when everyone else is putting in more work and effort than Lupe has done. Kid deserves the fame and success based on his album work, not this ish. Some of you all act like this is that big of deal when everyone is putting out material that easily tops this. It's a mixtape when we're on street tapes.

    It's whatever at the end of the day because I peep Lupe for his albums, not this shit. I don't think he has anything to prove and when he releases this material it's kind of silly. Just put out the album and it's the only testament you need. They speak for themselves.

    Plus the lil wayne flow is annoying.

  • TXM

    F&L and The Cool are both in my top 10.

  • JDG

    Mixtape of the year no doubt. maybe im just biased, cause i think lupe is the GOAT hands down. his rhymes and metaphors are ridiculous. dude always delivers, and kills it with the double entendres. he murked every one of these beats, and confirmed that he is not only the illest emcee in the game, but ever. every track is better than the original on this mixtape, and hova killed thank you, and slaughterhouse killed the one. Lupe is unbelievable.

  • crazy Russian

    most likely sucks

  • nukid

    @james....perfectly valid opinion...i won't lie im biased towards lupe being the best...but some ppl have made this a huge deal

    i think lupe is just doing this to kind of get more buzz...thats all...this isn't "necessarily" meant for those already who knew his strengths...its for those that don't know anything about him...and in today's music, the unfortunate truth is that in order to be labelled hot you gotta brag and rap over mainstream beats...

    not saying an artist can't be good without that...but seriously...you won't hear much about them outside blogs and the net and such...thats just what i'm seeing with the general music scene around the country

  • pumbaclut

    I so glad to hear lupe shit again but best mixtape(s) of the year go's to the usual suspects So Far Gone and The Warm up in that order. I like J. Cole better overall but you cannot deny so Far gone. The the shit U-N-I, TiRon, Cool Kids, Young Chris + many more all tie at 3rd lol

  • E. Grizzly

    Not to sure why people still make mix tapes. It's so old they still call it a mix tape.. I haven't used a tape in almost 14 years. As far as Lupe I think he's the great Hip hop hope. Alot of people still don't give him the props he deserves but he's one of the only MC's that actually talks about topics and issues we're dealing with now and days instead of just ego and punch lines. An 80 year old man would say he's dope if they really listened to what he was saying.

    Jonnie Hayward The IV You're (one of) the stan(s) I'm talking about. You idiot, if he is a great artist, which he is, then he should get the sales to go with it, you don't even care if he sales 2 copies of an album. Yet, if he did that he would probably crease to create music. Do you see what I mean? I want him to shine bright as fuck but you want him stuck in your iPod so you feel like VIP carrying music that no one else might have.

    @ A....I can careless if he sells 2 copies..the point of me makin outrageous posts is because Lupe is EXTREMELY UNDERRATED and slept on...I hear niggas all the time comparing him to Kanye or say he only raps about skateboards until they actually sit down and listen his lyrics...I prefer lyricists over mainstream rappers..my favorite artist of all-time is Nas... Nas has never sold like Wayne or Jay-Z but I really don't give a fuck..I don't care about that extra shit like record sales it got nothin to do with me..all I care about is the copy that I purchase..stop worryin about niggas record sales.. 1 copy or a billion copies Lupe still dat nigga

  • http://miunex.blogspot.com Vigilante

    That is a good question.

  • Jonnie Hayward The IV

    They both have been more successful (well atleast Souljaboy) as far as record sales, than Big L or Big Pun ever was but that don't mean a god damn thing...and 2 be honest I just want Lupe to get the same amount of notoriety as his peers do these days because I know he is better than all of them

    this is an amazing mixtape. but did someone compare this to illmatic. this aren't even his tracks he's just rapping on some hot tracks. illmatic's a top 10 album of all time. but i would rather listen to Lupe's mixtape than 50 Cent's album every time.

    Wow, actually listen to the tape than dick riding Lupe.There's 11 songs on it where only 2 go over the 3 minute mark.I'm not saying it's not a good tape, im saying the quality and quantity are below par.No ceilings was much greater than this, no comparison

    i like where youre coming from with the album art, but you should fix the dimensions so it is the same as a normal album cover. and you should put a love story on it too. i like the idea a lot though.

    i agree with you about how good this tape is and how look lu is. i thnk he is the GOAT personally. but dont hate on jay-z. he is running the music industry right now and is pure class. he has dope metaphors too.

  • nukid

    @nickd...4get i ever brought up illmatic...i tried to make a point but chose wrong example...but yea after listening a couple times this isn't lupe's best work...it almost sounded like he was lyrically fighting for ppl's approval...it didnt seem natural like his older stuff...
    yes he has amazing lines and bars but it does lack that natural lupe flair and style to it...
    but nonetheless its still quality imo

  • nickd

    @Jonnie Hayward The IV

    why? wasn't Lupe on the SAT scores because nobody knows him the only thing we know him from is his song (kick push and coast) and (superstar) and that's it's why did he wanted to retire because nobody don't know him not even the grammys and guess who Lupe lost against for best rap album of the year Lil Wayne dumb ass

  • NIGAAUAINTKNOW?

    revenge of the nerd was probably the best mixtape ive ever listend too..this isnt on that level since its only like 20-30 mins long, but its definitely dope and definitely better than a lot of "albums" most niggas are putting out. lupe is tha shit and im definitely coppin lasers. i like the original artwork too, niggas get too caught up in making a movie poster for an album cover, the music is all that should matter. period.

  • http://www.twitter.com/stric Stric

    Nice artwork Shakey

  • JDG

    true i like the original artwork too. plain and simple. perfect for a mixtape. but im open to others too if theyre made well.

  • Jonnie Hayward The IV

    Glad to see the positive feedback...this is why I've been postin all those Lupe comments all month long...Lupe is so underrated...good to see Lupe finally gettin noticed some even if it is just this blog..back in 06 it was nothing like this..really only negative opinions on this is it is too short or they just aint feeling it like that

  • http://vz A

    NIGAAUAINTKNOW? you right but artist probably want a dope ass cover and I doubt they worry much about the cover seeing how they are probably paying someone for a cover.

  • http://vz sdv

    No Ceilings> this in terms of work Lupe seems like he just wanted to finish this shit in a hurry so many songs are like 2 minutes. No Ceilings was a whole lot of bars each with little else.

  • Jonnie Hayward The IV

    @nickd...since when was rap a popularity contest?? I highly doubt he cares he lost a grammy award to Lil Wayne..doesn't mean Wayne is any better..grammy is mostly a popularity contest too...lemme guess SouljaBoy is better than Lupe too since he is more known??..yea ur an idiot..most of Lupe's lyrics go over nigga's heads anyway, those who understand them are most likely educated and don't have short attention spans like Lil Wayne fans who listen to a man who doesn't write or put any thought into his music just freestyles it while high

  • Curtis75Black

    This is freaking Illy, I wish there was at least 1 weezy feature.

  • MicKs

    Taking quantity combined with quality into consideration, I believe the best mixtapes of 2009 are as follows:

    1. J.Cole- The Warm Up
    2. Lupe Fiasco- Enemy of the State
    3. B.o.B.- B.o.B vs. Bobby Ray
    4. Add-2- Tale of Two's City Vol. 3
    5. Tiron- Ketchup
    6. XV- Everybody's Nobody
    7. Wale- Back to the Feature
    8. Big Sean- UKNOWBIGEEAN
    9. Pac Div- Church League Champs
    10. QuESt- Broken Headphones

    *Not including Drake's tape since he re-released it with a few new racks for purchase.

  • http://2dopeboyz.com realtalk82

    yeah this is dope as fuck,Im gonna stick with the tape style version of mixtape because it blends well and should be heard alltogether in order. Sometimes I think that I like Wale so much because his vocals sound similar to Lupe's except There 2 total different rappers and Lupe is Obviously more lyrically skilled.

    im in high school, i smoke weed every day, i got 2120 on my SATs. i only listen to underground hip-hop. lupe is my favorite artist by far, and i understand wayyyy more of his metaphors and word play than all of my friends do. including ones that have never touched weed in their life. so that point was irrelevant.,

    Yeah Lupe is incredibly good, yes this tape is nice, but its not better than No Ceilings.
    This isnt even in my top 5 mixtapes of the year, but it is in my top 10. I really would have enjoyed a longer mixtape, that could change my opinion.

    The reason people may not like Lupe is because of the stans hating on every single artist that is no Lupe. They get into heated arguments on how Lupe is the best thing to happen to people ever. People get pissed at faggot fans yes fags because they get soooooooooo mad at people saying Lupe aint good or Lupe is the best ever but they didn't like one song of his. And just ride him talking about like he's their mother and say fuck everyone else.

  • Jonnie Hayward The IV

    No filler in this tape like No Ceilings...no rambling either..and on the contrary I am a Lil Wayne fan also but I'm completely aware that Lupe is better..Nas is my favorite artist of all time..choose who u wanna listen to..as long as Lupe is underrated I will hype him up simple as that...if I'm correct Jaywall has been downplaying Lupe for a while and still doesn't want to fully admit that he's better..whether u like No Ceilings more is personal opinion..but the majority of us it seems likes the quality over the quantity..for those who get annoyed..stop taking me so seriously and worry bout something else more important than my comments

  • nukid

    i see what your sayin but i only see it like that on blogs and the net...in public and daily life ppl don't like lu cuz they can't dance to him or they want music they don't necessarily have to LISTEN to appreciate...but yea i've seen what you've said happen and its tragic when someone like jonnie ruins it a bit

    nothing against you jonnie but honestly...tone it down bro

  • Jonnie Hayward The IV

    Lol @ blaming Lupe fans for people not listening to Lupe..are you serious? That was lame,,sounds personal between you and that fan..your opinion about Lupe's music and your beef with the Lupe fan are two separate matters...only reason Lupe fans hype the man up so much is because he is underrated and deserves the same amount of recognition as his peers (Lil Wayne, T.I., Drake etc.)

    Actually Jonnie your wrong.
    Im think Lupe is top 10 alive right now, but I also feel Wayne is the best out currently.
    Had this tape been longer, and lupe spit more, it could have been better than No Ceilings. both are dope, but I enjoy No Ceilings more and think its better.
    Sometimes going over peoples heads isnt a good thing. his angels had me hella confused for a good minute.

  • http://srjkyuikgjhgftyuhjgyhbgtyhgyhgt hdeshjtfydgf

    "No filler in this tape like No Ceilings" Really? Wayne went bar after bar in almost every song and gave you enough to make up for features he gave you more lyrics. They were lyrical too not as lyrical as Lupe but he gave you more shit. I don't know I can ride to No Ceilings all the way through and just chill to it at home.Lupe is more headphone only music with some riding music. Lupe has both Food and Liquor and The Cool on lock as a classic Carter 2 is also a classic I prefer The Cool out of all. Yet to me No Ceilings > Enemy of the State only because it was too short had he gone in for more than 2 minutes like Yoga Flame he woulda put No Ceiling on hold.

  • Jonnie Hayward The IV

    @ Jaywall..ok I can respect that you enjoyed it more, I liked No Ceilings too and Wayne does have his moments. And tracks where he be snappin and it annoys me sometimes that he doesn't do it as often as he used to..but as far as straight lyricism, metas, and wordplay goes.. Lupe is over him..and I can understand how Lupe goin over heads can turn people off also but I think its brilliant have me wonderin sometimes how he think of that but I've always appreciated creative lyricism over anything...some artists appeal to people more than others...ha my 2nd favorite rapper behind Lupe of course is Curren$y the hot spitta!....Him and Lupe are totally different rappers

I mean, Weezy has done so many innovative activities for hip hop. I mean why all of the south rappers were writing bubble gum ryhmes, Weezy was dropping classic albums like the Carter Trilogy. I mean, wayne has the dopest wordplay on the mic. This has been proven. I mean, just listen to like anyone of the Carter albums. I guarantee you will be a major fan after you listen to them. I mean, dont hate congradulate! LuLz. Weezy is a ryhming Hero. No one can do it better riht now.

    What Lupe album did you guys prefer? I chose Food & Liquor, a lot of they songs were incredibly relatable for me. Probably the only rap album that truly made me feel as if the artist was similar to me. The Cool was good, but I felt it lacked direction and impact.

    I mean I fucks with Lupes stuff, hes an incredible rapper. Its just sometimes I find it annoying when he goes over your head, like we all know he can spit but on a mixtape? I enjoy digging and decyphering his lyrics but after awhile it gets redundant. This mixtape was nice, but imo No Ceilings is better, but no ceilings did have 2 or 3 wack songs. but no rapper is perfect.
    Lupe did burn fireman though. Yoga Flammmmeeee

  • Jonnie Hayward The IV

    I think Lupe wanted to straight up rap ova used beats to show he can own em better than the original artist (besides Travis Porter)..Wayne Drake and Jay-z all made Hottest MCs list and everybody loves Slaughterhouse/Clipse.. Do think he made this tape in a limited amount of time though

    I expect different from Lupe... He can still flow and rhyme obviously, but Lu don't do what those doo doo dudes do...

    I think he coulda been just as effective by saying nothing...I think not being nominated as one of the hottest emcees on MTV went to dudes brain...so he felt pressured to get a buzz going...

    imho this mixtape lacks any direction/theme other than a lyrical warmup. nothing wrong with that.
    and for the ppl who are having trouble keeping up (ie mithritades) or who are just curious, the LupEND blog posted the lyrics to all the songs:

    coreys is pretty dope too but shakes is gunna reside in the ipod

    and i admit im a fiasco stanley, but a single .mp3 is not the buisness, even when he does it. ill listen to it straight the first time through but ill be damned if i scroll through it every time to get to the song i want
    and wtf would i or anyone else look like putting the whole file in my phone, thats too much space...

    so basically good look with the chopwork sir shake of the dopeboyz

    Nice to see so much love for Lu. The mixtape is f*cking ridiculous...I'm still catchin lines. When u can't pick ur fav line or fav track, u know ur listening to quality shit.

    I feel bad cuz i just listened to Luda rhyme over Turnt Up and it wasn't as good as Lupe's and I had to stop listening...And i Like Luda a lot =X

    lupe officially loaded up this 22 min mixtape more than any album/mixtape that has basically been put out all year...or at least 90% of anything put out this year

    not saying he's the best or worst...but people NEED to give credit to this dude for sure...anyone who doesn't...well...its your loss and a huge one at that imo...you ain't gunna find another like him in a LONG WHILE

    What other post on this blog gets or has gotten 30 to 40 comments from each person that comments? Exactly

    @Omar...personally im happy a person like lu is showing this hunger to get his name out there...imagine a rapper of his caliber getting into the masses...then you'll get guys like blu and jay elec and elzhi with their stuff coming out into the mainstream without having to dumb down their music...
    again im a lu fan and won't say he's the overall best right now but as far as im seeing he's the next attempt start the movement of rap to a renewed era comprising of actually skilled rappers who will be accepted by the public...
    you could say others are doing that but as far as i can see no one is making any real attempt...(drake COULD have till he signed with young money...then that door just closed shut QUICK!!)

  • nukid

    and also only person posting a huge load of comments in jonnie hayward...exclude about half and you still got enuff comments in here (half of his actually make some sense...kind of...but their tainted by his annoyance)

  • http://thecorner.co.nz Hussein

    this is really really gritty and seems like a new direction for Lupe. I'm glad because I think (despite how talented he is) he could've worn out his welcome with all the "backpack rat pack" talk. But this is pure fire and he's even using crazy little Weezy styled couplets, which often have to be listened to twice (listened to Turnt Up for more proof). I cannot wait to hear his album.

    @hussein kill yourself for saying "he’s even using crazy little Weezy styled couplets, which often have to be listened to twice"

    1.lil wanye did NOT create that so saying he's using lil type of rapping is FUCKING STUPID
    2.lupe been doing that its called metaphors and similies do you even listen to lupe thats his style and why most of his fans like him because his lyrics have double meanings his make sense lil waynes are just simple,elementry and lame and some oflil waynes are just stupid
    3. aint shit about this gritty

    Straight from Lu's MySpace:

    Enemy Of The State was NOT, NOT, NOT meant to be an album...so stop (to the ungrateful among you) TREATING it like one...

    Enemy Of The State was short for a reason...I DONT LIKE TO WASTE SONGS...AND IT SHOULDN'T TAKE YOU THAT LONG TO PROVE YOUR NICE IF YOUR "REALLY" NICE...

    ENEMY OF THE STATE WAS WATERED DOWN ON PURPOSE...BECAUSE ITS NOT AN ALBUM...

    MOST OF ENEMY OF THE STATE WAS DONE IN ONE DAY...

    IF YOU DONT HEAR IT FROM ME OR DJ BUSY IT MAY NOT BE THE COMPLETE TRUTH!!!

    Going over people's heads SHOULD be the "only thing". If you are doing something, would you learn how to do it from someone less of you? For example, does it make sense for Michael Jordan to take basketball lessons from Robert Pack (old heads you know who that is)....NO! Not at all, so why would you listen to a rapper that CANNOT make more complex rhymes than you....and to take it further, why wouldn't you want to or crave to fully understand the rapper who is smarter than you'll ever be.
