Lupe Fiasco – Words I Never Said

It’s so loud inside my head / with words I should have said / as I drown in my regrets / I can’t take back the words I never said

This track completely BLEW ME AWAY and I wasn’t expecting it at all. It’s not that I dislike Lupe, though I notice that seems to be a trend lately (?) even with his record label, holding this album up for years, but… wow. He is on point here in verse and delivery. I feel like there are scorch marks on the side of my face now. This is music that is pointedly saying something even as it lays an inescapable hook on you. And Skylar Gray is used to great effect here, I love the chorus (interestingly, I’m unmoved by the chorus of  Diddy Dirty Money’s “Coming Home”).

They keep you on the bottom then tease you with the upper-crust

Glenn Beck is a racist… Gaza strip was gettin’ bombed, Obama didn’t say shit / that’s why I ain’t vote for ’em

You need this track in your iTunes library. Put on some headphones and get an earful of what passion and honesty sounds like.
