TooShort made me laugh too.. one of the best songs of Lupe. Every verse you expect him to switch up the rhyme scheme but he just keeps hitting each line harder and harder. This was the prime of his skill level.

II am ashamed he hurt his soul becazue he lost his ear peice

I know Lupe says he is going to retire, but I wish he wouldn't. He is so gifted, and leaves me full of hope for the future of real hip hop. Love this track. It's soul deep.. and it hurts me too. PLUR

The epitome of a real MC...lyrics, s u b s t a n c e and the IDGAF attitude towards the machine. Constant good quality music and dedicated Muslim giving zback to everyone...K e e p it up

This just shows how much record labels restrict artists from doing what they do if only they would let him do all his songs like this one he would be far more then he is now.
