I really don't understand why people love Lupe so much. He's not bad by any means, he is just so average.

That does seem to be the verdict on Lupe. You either love him to death, or find him to be a tad bit overrated. But I'll ask you, in what way is he average? To me his lyrics are insane, flow is off the charts, he could have a better ear for beats but so could a lot of emcees. I don't see anything about him that's "so average". Just interested in what you're seeing that maybe I don't.

I think Lupe is pretty good, I need to listen to more of his stuff though... Suggestions?

Nas gets me thinkin with some of his stuff. Songs like What Goes Around by him blow me away. Mos Def with some of his stuff although I can only handle so much of him at a time. His voice wears on me sometimes. Same with Immortal Technique, he's really good but I can only take so much political stuff

If you want legit thought-provoking stuff, definitely check out anything that's come through the Anticon label.

Doseone, Themselves, Alias, Sole, etc.

Also, Busdriver is pretty interesting - not really Anticon, but he's collaborated with 'em.

Yes, yes and yes. That Deep Puddle Dynamics album is intense, hoping they'll get back together someday for a follow up but I don't see it happening any time soon. I heard Sole left anticon but I'm not sure if it's true.

I concur. I went through a phase of listening to nothing but Immortal Technique and he inspired me to read. Strange, but true.
