Hip-Hop Rumors: Lupe Fiasco Not A Fan Of 2Chainz And Yeezy’s “Birthday Song”


Rapper Lupe Fiasco was never one to bite his tongue, so why start now? Lupe was recently interviewed on the Jenny Boom Boom Show on Hot 93.7 and kept it all the way real regarding his thoughts on 2Chainz ft. Kanye West’s new song, “Birthday Song.” Check out what Lupe said about the track below:

“For me, Hip-Hop, we were saying this earlier, I wanna hear stuff that I haven’t heard before so like 99 percent of the Hip-Hop that I hear these days is just the same,” said Fiasco. “And it just kinda gets like, ‘What am I listening to it for?’ And for me that’s keeping it 100. It is what it is. It might be good, the beat is dope, lyrics might be whatever on a technical thing, but at the end of the day it’s like, ‘Why am I listening to this?’”

I thought Lupe and Yeezy were cool? Sheesh. Do you think Lupe’s single “B*tch Bad” is better than “Birthday Song”? Check out the two tracks below and speak on it.

I am feeling that “B*tch Bad”. I can appreciate his lyrics. And here’s 2Chainz and Kanye’s “Birthday Song”.

Which one do you like better? Either way, I hope Lupe is coming with some heat for his new album, Food & Liquor 2: The Great American Rap Album Pt. 1, which is set to drop on September 25. Check out Lupe’s full interview with Jenny Boom Boom below.

    late

  • just bc your cool with somebody doesn’t me you can’t critique their work.

    • yup thats what you call keep it real .. and not real fake with your peers 😉 …. this is something i expect from travis porter … @ some point dudes gotta focus on that grown man !!!!!

  • johnblacksad

    why am i listening to this b!tch n!gga for? 99% of what he is whining about, i’ve already heard him cry about it before!

    This b!tch n!gga really really needs to shut the fcuk up now… prolly promo for that Food & Liquor 2… but still, b!tch n!gga move… (sorry Ic Heights 🙂

  • johnblacksad

    Friendly fire within hip hop… wow… there’s all kinds of genres out there now for everybody, find something you like and keep it movin… no one cares about what you don’t do nor like… what you expect from 2chainz ? you mean Kanye can’t dumb down on an occasion? it’s not like he’s always sayin corny stuff on every song… (not a Kanye fan, pls dont get me wrong)

    F LUPE!

    Poor righteous azz teacher… fcuked up thing is… he’s dope as hell on the mic, flow & lyrics on lock, extra intricate & complex rhymes… yes, i respect that… but his whole train of thought is fcuked up… TRYIN TOO HARD too be different… Obama got official haters that don’t call him a terrorist… only this silly negro had to let his mouth loose like that

    I know he’s salty as hell he doesn’t get the props he thinks he deserves! lol.. ninja should have only stuck to his craft and leave the side talk…

    I’m definitely not a fan of 2chainz either, but his sh!t is entertaining alright… nothin wrong with that… somehow i even think the album might be G.O.O.D! (dope cover!)

    • brotha_man

      you missed his point x10 but I guess your not raising a lil girl. hes only using 2chainz as an example to show how a rap influences the youth and how the message gets misconstrued through the parents, community, and their peers = miseducated society.

    • its entertaining but when you think about for who ?? we need to get on some grown man ish … cause wishing for a big booty girl for ya bday is a mans fantasy .. but more of a young mans fantasy … but we need to elevate from that … Doing the Butt by E.U came out YEARS !!!!!!! ago …. and lets not even get into the affect that this will have on the insecurity of woman who dont have a big booty …. these illegal booty shot stories arent increase just because …. #end

  • immackulate

    lupe song was better – 2chainz dont do it for me unless im at the strip club

  • brotha_man

    whether you like lupe or not he is right!….but then again negroes these days only mess wit white guls and call each other nigga. stupid society will neva learn, glorified racism will ruin us as a society. but i guess it is better to talk keyz and rubber bands #stupidsociety

    • i agree with what you are saying but nothing wrong with messing with a white girl

      • immackulate

        you must be waking up next to one of them CAVE BYTCHES

  • lupe’s waaaay bettter. peep the wordplay. but the radio, bet, and mtv will push the 2chainz track because that’s the b.s. that sells

    • brotha_man

      but who fault i that? MTV will only push stuff that we buy

  • Negro Peligro

    I mean the 2 Chainz and Kanye song is kind of dated. But B Bad is the other end of the spectrum. Its alright. I make mostly whiney rap like Luupe but I feel you it get depressing.

  • count_210

    both songs hard .kanye saved the 2 chainz song.lupe can’t compliment the song.the content is exactly what he’s speaking against in his song.

  • Lion King

    Lupe’s song is creative. 2Chainz and Kanye’s song is mediocre.

  • im sure songs like BIRTHDAY SONG inspired lupe to make songs like BAD BITCH …. so that response was expected from lupe … some folks like to step the game up … other folks are ok with dweling in and pro-longing the madness 😉

  • Black Exodus

    Lupe…man…he is only getting wittier and like a harpon…hits you and makes you think…my brother is fully woke and on mission to wake others…he’s making very relevant music that will only be understood and truly appreciated through the passing years. He could never give the Kayne and 2 chains song a pass because it’s the mentality he’s trying to change in masses of the walking dead. I know It may be cliche but the children are the future and all this music is being played on urban radio. The children sing these songs word for word. Eventually they will imitate these artist and actions. As artist…whether you agree or not…there is a silent responisblity to your words and images you reverberate. The lack of respect for women that we’ve shown has introduced the “Baby Momma”. The lack of respect for the man has introduced the “Dead Beat Donor Daddy”. If you think that music, video’s and popular culture has nothing to do with this….please wake from the darkness. I’ll leave with this. Majority of the Soul Music in the 50’s-70’s reflected on relationships, love, hurt, rebirth of love. This equated Marriage and a rightheous respect for our women….the Music of today reflects Sex, Lust, Aggression, Self and a infatuation of material wealth…no wonder we have the problems that is killing our community.
    Respect…. Black Exodus “Diamonds”….that’s what we are…never ever forget that!

  • birthday better for da club and all around. lupe’s song ain’t somethin i would bump. i hear his message but thats just for da crib lol.

  • Lupe’s song is a 100 times better then that whack ass 2 Chains song!

  • Lyve Wire

    right before it rains, we might hear thunder and see lightning.
    right before you get hungry, your stomach might growl.
    everytime lupe has an album coming out, he start running off at the mouth.
    regardless if he’s right or not, get people talking with your work, not ‘something controversial’. i dont mess with dude anyways, every since the ‘president is a terrorist’ bs. i bet if kanye and 2 chains asked him to get on a remix, he’d do it.
    for the record, im no kanye and chain fan either. i just dont like when cats come out the door with that hating bs, just to sale some units.

    • immackulate

      ugh ITS CALLED MARKETING and er’rapper does it to a certain extent

  • CaliTransplant

    Birthday Song is like a hundred other songs out right now. This trash sounds just like No Lie and every song on side one of Self Made except for Power Circle-which is bangin! If it wasn’t for Kanye’s verse, I would’ve clicked off that bs like pronto. Yo, why is 2 Chainz so hot right now? I mean, get yours, homes. But, for me, every one of his rhymes sound exactly the same; ditto for Yo Gotti and French Montana. Ugh? Rap is outta control!

    • King Rickey

      I don’t know about Tity or French but Gotti been respected in the game since early 2000s, can’t knock him. But yeah, there’s a lot of other repetitive music and concepts everywhere.

      • immackulate

        respected in the game … c’mon my man YO GOTTI aint did nothing to gain respect but bite JEEZY’s format and he did a bad job at that too

  • But he made Lasers….
