    Lupe and it's not even close. Ab-Soul idolizes Lupe. I know he doesn't say it a lot in interviews, but dude randomly throws Lupe quotes out all the time in random conversation. Ab-Soul may end up being better if Lupe retires soon and Ab-Soul goes on a run.
    How many dudes have you really shot
    you rely on muscle memory no wonder you forgot
    how stupid can you be,I'm world class,who you teaching ass
    you got broad shoulders prom queen, carry that
    your top five lists can not be taken seriously (naw)
    when the reaper takes them all seriously (yeah)
    you should have died as one of your moms cramps
    fuck around get your skull turned into boot camp (ha)
    I am not the one who you want to have bothered
    your mom water shouldn't have broke if Moses was your father (hungh)
    I just stepped out the nexus to answer who next is
    what perplexes me is you all know I'm sicker,you disagree
    you iller?, make your move Nomad (damn)
    I got better reflexes than Body Builders
    demolition man, is he stallone,snipes,or the reem
    all you self-centered clowns can't stop the dream (stupid)

    The essence of my pubescence was stick to the lessons
    Keep the substance in the artwork solid,no need for stressin
    Shit, rap smoke and mirrors
    I aint dyin' off the second hand from the reflection of another man
    Not tryin' to hear who you think more clever, it whatever
    Dead at the same time, they toe-to-toe, neck-and-neck forever
    Dexterity is dexter, my pressure is impressing
    Buffalo Bill, but the victims doing the cross-dressing
    You nobodies get piled in the bathtub
    why you think it's called the rest room
    The brand is new, just call it a flesh-wound
    Word is born, who needs a flesh womb
    If I diss you, better just take that
    I coin phrases,Harvey Dent aint got the balls to flip that
    Sergeons need image awards if they save face
    Cave your chest in until Osama and Bruce Wayne could be roommates
    You gassed already, that's what happens when your hate unconditional
    Your favorite rappers is weak, but you virgins use to putting pussy on a pedestal

    LT2 is better than Lasers. LT2 is one of my favorite projects ever. CS and F&L2 are even to me right now. Both have faults and high points. We have to include Lupe's mixtape run earlier in his career and F&L and The Cool and Ab's LT and LTM do not add up with Lupe's catalog.That is why it is not even close to me. Unless you are considering only the last three years and not the totality of their bodies of work. For the record I was listening to Ab's first mixtape in 2005 and I know most if not everyone else on this site has heard it.I included that in my vote too. I took everything I've ever heard from both of them into account.

    Food & Liquor and The Cool are great albums. None of Ab-Souls mixtapes are fucking with them but overall if Ab Souls mixtapes are better than Lupes plus his last 2 albums. My nigga is on interscope and with TDE production, I think he's gonna be dropping gems with Kendrick and Q for years to come which is why I say he's overall better.

    In fact GCMC >> all of Lupe's albums

    Got to account for what is and not what might be. At this point Lupe is one of the GOATS and Ab will tell you that himself. I can't put GKMC over F&L right now. It's in the same league, but I can't be a prisoner of the moment and forget how F&L made me feel when I walked to Target in Gardena at 8 in the morning just to get it, the first time I listened to it, the amount of times I listened to it. Having no food in the fridge, being dead poor and listening to that album all the time. I have to take into account my situation now and my connection with GKMC. I am actually listening to GKMC now as I type this and "good kid" is playing now.

    True, I only come to the reason when real hip hop is back on the market. The Rick Ross, Drake and Young Money music is not my era so I strayed away from these threads.

    When hip hop dies, the same shit goes.

    I love that you showing the homie love brah, I only wish good for people's music I listen to. I listen to a lot of TDE as a collective and Lupe too. I'm more than likely going to listen to F&L 2 when this album goes off.

    Currently they're sort of even, with Ab getting slight lead.

    Overall careers, I'd say Lupe based off his first 2 albums.

    I fux wit Ab-Soul heavily, and CS is one of my fave albums of the year. In fact, i'll say that CS>F&L II, but Lupe got this off of the merit of his early work.

    Yeah i see what u mean, its just seems to me that kendrick is capabable of more. I would say he's slightly better. Based on his music and soul's but theyre not far from eachother in fact very close.

    Soul is underrated but I definitely wouldn't put him over Lupe. I think Soul deserves just as much attention as Kendrick gets.
