Lupe Fiasco is as proud and competitive as any rapper out there.
In fact, he spent some of his day on Twitter taking shots at his long time rival Kid Cudi -- who was in turn taking shots and Drake and Kanye West.
However when it comes to Kendrick Lamar, Lupe Fiasco will make a concession.
Witness this Twitter exchange which started when one of Lupe's followers argued Kendrick became what Lupe was supposed to be
@LupeFiasco in 06 I believed you were supposed to be what Kendrick now is for the culture.. you were supposed to be the voice what happen— NU Gambino (@Blunt_Flacko) September 14, 2016
Granted Lupe isn't necessarily conceding K.Dot is the better wordsmith. But that's still pretty high praise from Fiasco. Especially since he hasn't always felt so warmly about Lamar's talents.
But do you agree that Kendrick became what Lupe could have been?
