Lupe Fiasco: Spend five minutes with a Lupe Fiasco fan and he or she will passionately tell you Lupe is A) the most underrated rapper alive B) the best rapper alive C) too smart for a genre that's currently uninterested in lyricism. All of these things are wrong, but the loyalty to the Chicago MC is admirable. Lupe has had a much-publicized and complicated relationship with his label, but his long-delayed Lasers LP was finally released in March. Although critical response was mixed, it spawned the double-platinum, Modest Mouse-sampling single "The Show Goes On," proving Lupe can still make new mainstream fans. With the label drama behind him (for now), he's working on the sequel to his debut album, Food & Liquor II. By the looks of recent YouTube footage, he's gunning for rap's titans, hoping to claim the spot his fanbase says is rightfully his. Check out this video (fast-forward to 4:22) where Lupe freestyles and has choice words for Lil Wayne, Drake, Jay-Z and Kanye West.
