Clearly, Lupe Fiasco has some type of stronghold on his emcee stance and knows exactly what will work for a rapper of his caliber. When pressured on Twitter about who he considers is the greatest rapper, the “Kick, Push” spitter did not hesitate to enlist Jay-Z with the crown. The thread turned into a class session of “Jay-Z 101” which one fan found to be detrimental over their dreamy desire to hear the Chicago native collaborate with Nas. In response to the fan’s concern, Fiasco revealed that he is not fond of doing features and will never do a feature with another rapper, ever again.

“Lol hear me & hear me good you will never hear me on a track with another rapper ever again,” he tweeted. “I don’t like doing features and I’ve done all the features I wanted to do it’s done, it’s done, it’s done.”


It appears to not be a blow at Nas in any way, just personal preference. Lupe went on to confess his discernment for being featured on Kanye West’s “Touch the Sky” and held his business partner responsible for bribing him into doing the verse. A fan recalled the song as being the one to break the rapper’s exposure into the mainstream.

He also went on to assure fans that shall his once supergroup with Kanye and Pharrell Williams, Child Rebel Soldier, finally make an album, he will not be on the debut.

The topic of discussion triggered the rapper go on and continue to mention more of his personal favorites as the greatest which include Nas, Biggie Smalls, Eminem, Prodigy, Busta Rhymes, Andre 3000, Jay Electronica and several more. According to Lupe, he has been inspired by class acts Yasiin Bey aka Mos Def and Talib Kweli (Black Star) and Dead Prez. It only makes sense he deems a couple of Hip-Hop’s greatest wordsmiths as those who are unarguably proven to be true to the test as it also reflects in his own style. It is obvious, Fiasco stands strong on being true to the word of rap and will never compromise the art for an opportunity. He even praised Jay Electronica for being strategically low with releasing an album, birthing a high demand, saying the rapper does not have to do “shit.” Well, take that from an emcee who is a student of the culture first.
