It appears Lupe Fiasco is a little late to the party. After explaining he was overseas when JAY-Z’s 13th studio album 4:44 dropped, Lupe finally carved out the time to weigh in on the final product in two lengthy Instagram posts two weeks after the project’s release. The twist? The Food & Liquor MC rhymed the entire review.

In Part 1, he admits the confessional “4:44” is too personal for him, but has him wanting to “apologize to random women.”

“Smile is the shit,” he writes. “4:44 too personal for my opinion, but makes me wanna go up and apologize to random women, Blame Jay, the vibe checkered but dirty beats make it hard to sneak past the first 5 records, looped up the jewels viewing the clarity during a layover, right now awesome.”

Album dropped when I was overseas, data plans & coverage limitations wouldn’t allow a decent listen, usually like to oversee when I be whippin, back from china on a American, long story I’ll take you back there again, for now let’s just focus on the pair of twins times 3, the 13th Jigga, had to make the review rhyme this time for you niggas, shit takes me back like Royal slippers, with sublime glimpses of that old spitter, baseline bully, he wouldn’t freestyle a whole album would he?, leave the speculation to the bookies, push me back to when we was rookies, chip off the old Roc, presenting my cookies to the cutter, the album is better than yours motherfuckers, hence why I peruse swift, and curse all ya gifts, Smile is the shit, 4:44 too personal for my opinion, but makes me wanna go up and apologize to random women, Blame Jay, the vibe checkered but dirty beats make it hard to sneak past the first 5 records, looped up the jewels viewing the clarity during a layover, right now awesome, give you the rest when I get to Boston…👍🏾

sadfasfsdfsdfIn Part 2, the Chicago native makes it abundantly clear the track “Marcy, Me!” is a highlight for him before he concludes the album is a “10/10” in his book.

The second half meditation, sounds like what happens when education meets decorations for mass that met black witchcraft and went half on calf, holy cow, MARCY ME!, had to put it in all caps, the artistry separates the bullshit from the Bulls Chips, partially, all facts, how he gone take it there? The beat feel like Sanaa Lathan hair…in slow motion, next to the ocean, wordplay gorgeous, 5 mics no sources, I ain’t publicly leaned back bopped in a while especially to this style of a portrait, vulnerable but not tortured, a fortress ain’t gotta force it, real time classic, a revival of the corpus, the Tribeca Jay cool but he like for the masses, the Brooklyn Jay a ghoul only suitable for the masters, MARCY ME so fucking stupid! Funny part is I know exactly how he do it, can even reproduce it, but just cuz you can imitate the bruises that don’t mean they Bruce’s, message to the hearer, Lee that boy alone, he’s fighting without fighting we just cuts inside his mirror! 10/10 Stop Hiding Behind Hooks & Fill Up A Rhyme Book….😏

Overall, it’s obvious Lupe is feeling 4:44 like countless others who have offered their glowing opinions on Hov’s platinum-selling album. But this isn’t the first time Lupe has penned his thoughts on music. In fact, he reviewed his own album, DROGAS Light, in February.
