Wer der Meinung ist, dass Lupe Fiasco nicht sooo cool ist, muss diesen Track jedoch ausklammern. Vielleicht nicht. Vielleicht nicht, weil Skylar Grey gefeaturet ist (ich mochte DIDO auch nicht), aber ganz bestimmt wegen den echt krassen Lyrics.

Lupe klagt in diesem Track nämlich einfach mal die ganze Welt an, insbesondere Amerika an. Und zwar in jedem einzelnen Rhyme, weshalb ich auf Zitate verzichte und gleich die kompletten Lyrics “beifüge”. Man muss zwar nicht in allen Punkten mit Lupe übereinstimmen (zum Beispiel, dass er nicht gewählt hat und wählen wird?!) aber eine dermaßen offene, krasse (Politiker offen als Rassisten zu bezeichnen, auch noch in den Staaten) und vor allem ernstzunehmende “Ansprache” verdient meines Erachtens nach krassen Respekt. Oder einfach nur: *WORD*.

Was das Video angeht, übertreibt der Gute es vielleicht ein wenig. Erst SOKO-Einsatz dann Befreiungsaktion aus dem HOCHSICHERHEITSTRAKT, samt Kung Fu Kampfszenen und schließlich rettet er eine sexy Lady vor einer Lost-Brainwash-mäßigen Maschine. Aber in Verbindung mit den Lyrics ergibt das ganze zumindest einen Sinn. Der Clip wurde von Sanaa Hamri gedreht, die wie ihr hier nachlesen könnt eine ziemlich beeindruckende Karriere vorzuweisen hat.

Bleibt nicht anderes zu sagen als: Zieht euch dieses krasse Video und hört (und lest) unbedingt die Lyrics!

It’s so loud Inside my head
With words that I should have said!
As I drown in my regrets
I can’t take back the words I never said

I really think the war on terror is a bunch of bullshit
Just a poor excuse for you to use up all your bullets
How much money does it take to really make a full clip
9/11 building 7 did they really pull it
Uhh, And a bunch of other cover ups
Your childs future was the first to go with budget cuts
If you think that hurts then, wait here comes the uppercut
The school was garbage in the first place, thats on the up and up
Keep you at the bottom but tease you with the uppercrust
You get it then they move you so you never keeping up enough
If you turn on TV all you see’s a bunch of “what the f-cks”
Dude is dating so and so blabbering bout such and such
And that aint Jersey Shore, homie thats the news
And these the same people that supposed to be telling us the truth
Limbaugh is a racist, Glenn Beck is a racist
Gaza strip was getting bombed, Obama didn’t say shit
Thats why I aint vote for him, next one either
I’ma part of the problem, my problem is I’m peaceful
And I believe in the people.

Now you can say it aint our fault if we never heard it
But if we know better than we probably deserve it
Jihad is not a holy war, wheres that in the worship?
Murdering is not Islam!

And you are not observant
And you are not a muslim
Israel don’t take my side cause look how far you’ve pushed them
Walk with me into the ghetto, this where all the Kush went
Complain about the liquor store but what you drinking liquor for?
Complain about the gloom but when’d you pick a broom up?
Just listening to Pac aint gone make it stop
A rebel in your thoughts, aint gon make it halt
If you don’t become an actor you’ll never be a factor
Pills with million side effects
Take em when the pains felt
Wash them down with Diet soda!
Killin off your brain cells
Crooked banks around the World
Would gladly give a loan today
So if you ever miss payment
They can take your home away!

I think that all the silence is worse than all the violence
Fear is such a weak emotion thats why I despise it
We scared of almost everything, afraid to even tell the truth
So scared of what you think of me, I’m scared of even telling you
Sometimes I’m like the only person I feel safe to tell it to
I’m locked inside a cell in me, I know that there’s a jail in you
Consider this your bailing out, so take a breath, inhale a few
My screams is finally getting free, my thoughts is finally yelling through
