Lupe Fiasco

In this picture he may look like another irritating hipster rapper but Lupe Fiasco is actually the Saviour of modern hip-hop. His songs address issues such as refugees, gang wars, corrupt police, the exploitation of indigenous Americans, child soldiers, terrorism, violent video games and their affect on kids the list goes on. Here are two of the music videos...
Little Weapon the best song of 2007 (video is made up of parts of the movie Blood Diamond so is quite violent)
American Terrorist this song needs repeated listens almost every single lyric references an issue that could be discussed for hours.

Thanks everyone for all the comments...

Hey, good post :)
I agree, Lupe Fiasco, in my opinion, is one of the smartest rappers out there at the minute. It's refreshing to hear someone in Hip-Hop who isn't rambling about bitches and hoes for a change. :P

Yes Lupe Fiasco is brilliant. He is not like any one else in hip hop. I saw him in an interview and it made me fall in love with him even more because he is such a cool guy and so different to what you would expect.

Oh and no I wasn't being random, I LOVE Crystal Castles! You have good taste in music!
