Complex names Lupe Fiasco one of the 10 Best Rappers in Their 30's

Now here we go again with another Complex list. Lupe made it to #10 on their list of 30 best rappers in their 30's. Now 10 is not a bad position but if you go a little further up the list, you'll see that Danny Brown, 2 Chainz and Rick Ross are positioned higher than Lupe, which is an indication that once again; Complex can't be serious.

10. Lupe Fiasco
Age: 30
Label: Atlantic
From: Chicago, IL
Active Since: 1999
Twitter: @LupeFiasco

Career Highlights: His debut Lupe Fiasco's Food & Liquor peaked at No. 1 on the Billboard Rap charts and two of his albums are certified gold, he has been nominated for 11 Grammy Awards and won Best Urban/Alternative Performance for "Daydreamin'" featuring Jill Scott, and runs two clothing lines, Righteous Kung-Fu and Trilly & Truly and has designed sneakers for Reebok.

No other rapper has ever been such an intellect in rap and had as much commercial success as Fiasco. Throughout his career, he's been able drop socially aware rhymes without being over preachy and also make a cut a two fit for the radio as well. It's a rare feat. And he's still in his prime.

  1. really complex?!lol ...pointless list in my opinion

  2. The problem with lists like this is that the list makers don't define their terms. For example, what do you classify as "best?" If it's simply skill and creativity based, Lu would definitely need to be way higher, maybe even at #1, but if you're taking into account commercial sales & Grammy wins or sheer amount of music released or features (which, since they mention Lu's gold and platinum status, I'm sure that's taken into account) then in those areas it's fair that Lu's much lower on the list.

  3. Danny Brown is really good, just because he isnt your cup of tea doesnt mean you have to dis him

  4. Put Pusha T rick ross danny brown and 2 chainz behind Lupe and then you got yourself a list

  5. Pusha t in front of lupe? Yea ok :/

  6. Rick Ross, 2 Chainz?!! If 2012 happens, I feel like we get what we deserve

  7. If commercial success is taken in to account, Why is danny brown so high up? Complex just likes to dickride on anyone thats popular.

  8. "2 Chainz and Rick Ross are positioned higher than Lupe, which is an indication that once again; Complex can't be serious"

    hahahahahah i laughed so much when i read this hahahahaha

  9. 1 Andre 3000
    2 Nas
    3 Lupe
    4 Kanye
    5 Pusha T

  10. Rick Ross ain't that bad tbh, but 2 Chainz is garbage, but as the comment above says, Complex don't state what they mean by best, cos if commercial status comes into it then Lupe wouldn't be near the top.


Thanks for the comment - have a nice day !
