New Track: Lupe Fiasco - Fire [Lyrics Added!]



Yup... You heard me correctly, NEW track, and I'm hearing that it's supposedly a response to MTV's hottest emcees list, but don't take my word on it. Also this is NOT the same as the previously leaked song with the same name.


NOTE: This is NOT from Lasers


We said that we won't post anymore leaks but I'm hearing that this is an official release and Lupe's Twitter Update could be a hint that he just recently recorded it...

Update - Lupe left a comment:
Not a diss of the list...knew I wasn't gonna make it ha!...but I'm using the fact that I wasn't on it as an excuse to just start wrecking shit on a frequent basis so by the time the next one comes out I'll be number 1,2,3,4 and 5...

Update 2: My homie wrote the lyrics from the song down, so here you go!


[Verse 1]
i was bout as uncool as a nieces mothers biggest brother
but now its all butter
now i'm bout as uncool as some cover to a pool from a puddle
like a monsoon but subtler
slowly pull up my pants or sag it to a flooder
now u need a submarine the way im cuffin my jeans
like i'm arresting my dress code
the dress clothes and the dress toes
so lets roll
ghetto lambda lambda's how i address those
niggas might peep and think geek
but you need that when you knee deep goin on waste high
get up to your neck just like a great tie
i finally got the windsor, like on my eighth try
your shirts still soakin wet, your slacks ain't dry
and i have yet to even fall from the sky
i'm hotter than red with a head full of lye
better run and get spike, tell him i'm on fire

[Verse 2]
hell, i don't wanna see ya like a male stripper
as you picture yourself lookin at pictures of male strippers
thats how that i don't wanna go to hell nigga
wish ya well like a wishin well wisher wish itself
it fell at first so now i sail with ya
if it happen to sink, i pitch in with pales
and pitchers, bucket and cup it back to the river
then cover the leak with garbage pail kid stickers
{dynamite} and first aid the way ya saviors
now ya flow look like my bedroom door when i was four
no rockin that boat, or you be swimmin, fo sho
oh, i stay ship shape all aboard
thats just how i roll, when i try and keep the run afloat
hatins a disease and its deadly if you catch it
crabs in the bucket always tryna pull me backwards
position rarely change so they dont really matter
if not the same then similar like asher and mathers
bow

[Verse 3]
bully or i bogard, bodacious so i'm humphrey
i used to rubber band, but now i got a bungee
if you let me expand, that refers to the money
gucci's all good, chanel is all chummy
and that aint even for me, my honey and my mommy
i'd rather be bummy, nappy on top
cipriani in my tummy, the fade is for the fans
not even for my fans, its more for like the brand
whether you hear the words, or just a show of hands
the sign language lady who be translatin my jams
you really like the beats or you barely understand
why i throw my set up wherever i am
man, its cuz i love my town
my mind was a sponge, but now its sham-wow
i never throw in the towel so just wipe me down
but don't you get to close they might have to put you out

    And who cares what MTV thinks? They spend more time on shitty reality shows than on music.

  2. The water scheme laced throughout this track is absolutely ridiculous. Gonna take a while to fully decode this one.

    Also, I cannot stop laughing at the shout-out to the sign language lady they had at his show in STL. I put a joke about her in my stand-up act not too long ago and now Lupe's got her in a song. The best part is she'll probably never know about either. I love it.

  3. At the end he does say "We're not losers"... Interesting...

    ReplyDelete
  22. Lupe, keep your promiss and start wrecking shit on a frequent basis. I wanna hear a new song, every week ight my dude?

    ReplyDelete
  23. Crazy track

    I KNOW ITS NOT ALL ABOUT THAT BUT YOU DESERVE TO BE RECOGNIZED, YOU KNOW U COULD KILL THE GAME IF U REALLY WANTED TO. NO DISRESPECT TO THEM OTHER DUDES AND I KNOW U DOING MUSIC FOR A MORE POSITIVE CAUSE, BUT YOU DESERVE JUST AS MUCH RECOGNITION AS SOME OF THEM DO, IF NOT MORE...

    YOU NOT LETTING THE EVILS AND POLITICS OF THE MUSIC INDUSTRY CHANGE WHO U ARE BUT U STILL GOTTA SHOW THOSE FOLKS OUT THERE THAT U DEF 1,2,3,4 & 5.

    ReplyDelete
  24. He can be 1,2,3,4and 5 it is awesome how he switches up his flows during the song to imulate some on the list and show his versatility by rhyming on a beat most of there flows couldn't touch and he definitnely came at gucci ur flow is like my door when I was four lol I'm glad he points out how elementary his flow is to all this that call him a emcee. you know what tho with artist dropping mixtapes to practice and get publicity it makes me want a new Lupe mixtape before lasts but I'm sure when he opens the vault it will show just how fire he is he'll just keep it suspenseful that way the shock factor is way higher

    ReplyDelete
  25. Keep it up Lu.. Fuck wat they say we all know your the best in the game right now

    ReplyDelete
  26. Best rapper alive!

    Nobody is fucking with him lyrically!

    ReplyDelete
  27. S-Preme posted the lyrics, if you want to add a link to that Rhymestyle / Sean.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Annnnnnnd, the best Lyricist in Hip-Hop has returned!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Reading those lyrics, jesus Lu. Dude went all in and destroyed it. If Lasers is anything like this, it will be the album of the year. Which I have no doubt in my mind that it will.

    Lupe on a mission=dangerous.

    ReplyDelete
  30. uhhh...this is gonna take me like 6 months to get my head around these lyrics.

    ReplyDelete
  31. this man is on some other shit no noe is even close

    ReplyDelete
  34. Smh. And the World is sleeping on Lupe.. While few hip hop fans that has Lupe on their iPod playlist is the only albums that actually make sense..Most hardworking intellectual man behind the scenes in hip-hop...

    Dope track..This needs to hit the airwaves asap. I think i have these drum samples already...lol. The sample will take a lil' while to find...lol

    ReplyDelete
  35. why would the sample take a lil while to find?? um...hi famous song?

    and the beat already exists...you suck

    ReplyDelete
  36. I love it!! I am one of the people that "barely understand" but I love it lol.

    ReplyDelete
  37. this is a very...not like lupe track....hes rather cocky on it


    i love it tho lyrically...hes a beast on it..but just kinda cocky...i hope he dosnt have this attitude on lasers

    ReplyDelete
  38. stfu rappers are cocky he needs to be cocky so he can just shit on the game and show that nobody is f**king with him

    ReplyDelete
  39. he deserves to be cocky. he brought us nerdy, he brough us soulful, and he brought us emotionally gritty, time for some cock no homo

    ReplyDelete
  40. ^^ have you ever listened to lupe? he's always been cocky...listen to the farenheit shits

    ReplyDelete
  41. If this was merely an MTV response then Lasers will be iiillllllll....

    ReplyDelete
  42. Does anyone get the first line and what it has to do with the song? Like, dude, yah, you were as uncool as an uncle. Hmm, was he referring to that track with Unkle. See, those are lines only for his fans. No one else knows or gets that refrence, because it's so cryptic.

    ReplyDelete
  43. man this song go hard. people that say lupe sucks needs to shut up becuase he doessn't damn this shit go hard. this is a good day.

    ReplyDelete
  44. a this what type of music you will recieve from lasers. this dope lupe is back.

    ReplyDelete
  45. Can someone please try to break down the lyrics???

    ReplyDelete
  46. Man honestly Im still finding out new things when i listen to dumb it down and its been like a year or so this is what im talkin bout baby I live for this haha

    ReplyDelete
  47. no hes not talking about unkle, he's literally talking about uncle.. LOL

    I was about as uncool as a nieces mothers biggest brother, just a punchline

    ReplyDelete
  48. ^^ I think it's a double meaning.

    "I was about as uncool (uncle) as a neice's mother's biggest brother"

    "I was about as uncool (Unkle - Hello/Goodbye) as a neice's mother's biggest brother"

    ReplyDelete
  49. yeah but Unkle wouldn't really fit with it unless Unkle had a song called Mothers Biggest Brother or something close to that... Just cuz Unkle = Hello/Goodbye doesn't mean that he purposely aimed for that too


    yall OVERTHINKING!!! lol

    ReplyDelete
  50. I personally think he is talking about himself. If he has a niece(dk if he does or not,and her mothers biggest brother (would be himself)?

    ReplyDelete
  51. Lupe is perhaps the most complex lyricist ever. We are talking about someone who has verses from his mixtapes that people are still trying to get. ("Speakeasy like prohibition/No admission/if you aint knocking like me to the underground bar/burying a toast/dodging the raid like roach/N**ga plz.) Man, I am real excited about Lasers, Lu is going spaz.

    ReplyDelete
  52. whoops typo
    uncool=uncle, not related to the group Unkle, who produced Chemistry- Hello/Goodbye

    ReplyDelete
  53. @alex
    nahh he doesn't say its his niece,

    ReplyDelete
  54. on another pissed off note, guess who is stealin lupes triple cd idea???

    lil wayne!! the gremlin decidin to drop the young money compilation, carter 4, and his "rock" album the rebirth all on..... dec 15!!

    not only does that mothafucka got the nerve to steal a history makin idea from lupe, but to execute the plan on the same day as "Lasers"??

    it pisses me the fuck off to be quite honest. y? cuz wayne obviously has more mainstream appeal, so when people hear hes droppin 3 cds in a 1 day, the gonna say wow, wat a great idea, such great work ethic, blah blah blah, all while over shadowin lupes 3rd album. wtf!!!! us as diehard lupe fans should make sure lupes album goes plat this time 4real man. we cant let wayne do this shit to lupe.

    wayne has been bitin lupe ever since he started that "rock" shit. lupe been doin it ever since a rhymin ape came out, on f&l wit the instrumental, and on the cool wit lil weapon and hello/goodbye.

    we gotta show the world who the real best rapper alive is!! FNF UP!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  55. ^^ I don't think that Lupe's album will drop on December 15th....

    ReplyDelete
  56. ^agreed. buy Lasers. this guy is dope and deserving.
    wayne is trash along with most of the rest of rap nation. no substance...

    ReplyDelete
  57. yo, i'm pretty he DID mean Uncle, considering that the paranthetical title of the song hello/goodbye was Uncool. That's what makes it sick is that uncool sounds like uncle, but Unkle also produced the song referred to as Uncool.

    ReplyDelete
  58. ^^ That's what I meant.

    Hello/Goodbye (Uncool)

    ReplyDelete
  59. A) the triple CD lupEND idea and the Idea that wayne "came up" with, is NOT the same

    B) It wont happen, Universal will never allow it... The artists never get to decide on when they want to drop their album, the label's do, no matter who you are

    C) Wayne Biting Lupe is the omst silliest ish I have ever read... what are you talking about? Wayne got his idea for Rebirth off of 808 & Heartbreaks, and b) Rebirth wont ever even come out, why do you think Universal keeps shelving it?


    That is all
