Lupe Fiasco's "Lamborghini Angels" is Slightly Disturbing

By August 15, 2012

Follow me on:

Chances are, Lupe Fiasco's "Lamborghini Angels" will make you cringe. But that's okay; Lu wouldn't have it any other way. He issued this disclaimer ahead of the single:

"Warning: if you are easily offended or religiously sensitive DO NOT listen to Lamborghini Angels. Contains very disturbing content. Listener discretion is thoroughly advised."

The single is here, and though it's not as earth-shatteringly shocking as Lupe's tweet would have you believe, it's still likely to make some of you uncomfortable. It tackles religion and pedophilia with very vivid, very graphic details. And, much like its predecessors "Around My Way" and "B-tch Bad," "Lamborghini Angels" is delivered in a crisp, catchy cadence. All three appear on Food & Liquor 2: The Great American Rap Album Pt. 1, out September 25th.

Listen to "Lamborghini Angels" at The Rap Up.

Might be disturbing but no one in the mainstream is as creative or lyrically better than Lupe. He actually raps about real stuff rather than his hometown, getting high, drinking, cars, or money. Kendrick is the only one close and he will probably be on his level after his new album.

The flack that YOU believe Lupe is disturbing is, well… DISTURBING. You are a classic house negro.

I rarely leave comments, however, I would like to apologize to the author for Makeyw’s message. I love the song by Lupe Fiasco. It IS disturbing. That is one of the reasons why this song is great. He raps in detail about being molested. It doesn’t matter where you are from or what color you are…it’s disturbing. If you are comfortable with the topic… I am sorry for you. I agree with Big Boss. It’s refreshing to see a rapper (especially after 2000) tackle deep topics.

Lupe Fiasco is an intellectual elitist whose bark is much louder than his bite. He has zero star quality an uses preachy, disturbing, new world order, apocolyptic content to “prove” he’s “on a level” by himself. He’s pretentious and self-serving. This song is lyrically elementary and the only thing that stands out is the vivid imagery. I’m from Chicago, and I have never “gotten” this dude. He’s just a nerd with an attitude. So what, he’s not rapping about money hoez and clothes, he’s relying on sensationlism just like many other rappers. He just goes about it in a different way.

This comment is to whoever vanity63 is, first of all to say he is an elitist makes absolutly no sense, pick up a book, get caught up on what’s going on in the world outside of what you see on TV and maybe you would understand the song better. And as far as star quality he has several fans out there that are loving it!! And for you to be on here talking about him he must mean something to you, otherwise you wouldn’t have bothered to comment!
