Looks like the friendship between Lupe Fiasco and Royce 5’9 “turned sour as the two rappers threw off heavy diss tracks against each other.
On Wednesday (July 21), Royce posted a Carlos Broady-produced track called “Silence of the Lambda” on Instagram, which consists of several disses over Lupe.
“Solidarity like this muscle that we don’t want to tense / This synergy that these niggas just don’t want to use / In our inequality, matching our hectic pace, we radiate success / Attack us mentally, that’s that energy kings are trapped / So I’m done promoting the stupid shit / I’m going to drill a hole in your son while he’s holding your sun chips / While you’re over there with a chip on your shoulder / Like you Hova or some shit, ”he rhymes.
In the same verse Royce continues: “Your flow is redundant, I will separate your body from the soul / Now your body is cold and out of control / Now you are over there, body odor is pungent / To get out your body via assumptions / Look You all this passive aggressive pussying on / All the past sloppy positions that these pussies got me into / We these cool niggas bring in food, booze and fullies. “
The mention of food and liquor in the Detroit rhyme is likely a reference to Lupe Fiasco’s debut album.Food & Spirits.
Then this morning (July 22nd), Lupe delivered its own disc, “Steve Jobs: SLR 3 1/2”, produced by Soundtrakk.
The Chicago Spitter’s bars seemed a little more personal to Royce, however.
“I think this nigga is scared he never leaves heaven cause he’s already dead / nigga are you crazy? / What’s the point of knowing how to point and aim / when the niggas you’re going to pop right look the same / This ain’t muthafuckin ‘cool / This is a fucking shame / This is not a fucking game / That’s why I think you’re a fucking lame / We both wear glasses / The difference is that in school I thought it would be cool that you thought of skipping classes, “he raps to the six-minute song.
He also rhymes, “When I listen to your track record I can see that you skipped classics / I did it on my first and delivered it to the masses / Your songs are unforgettable / Your verses are impenetrable / I’m listening to this diss don’t even record / I just fuck about your interviews with you / I don’t even stumble if you called me a slut / I said, ‘Look at Salem, call me a witch. “
Lupe Fiasco’s drop of Salem’s name probably refers to the immortal, human-like talking cat from the 1990s sitcomSabrina the teenage witch.
Lupe continues to mention seemingly unresolved issues he had with Royce 5’9 “, taken from the podcast they collectively namedThe Lupe and Royce Show.
“From the podcast I was kind of skeptical / This is not our first clash / This is just one of several / And I’m not a tryna bash, it was like you weren’t on your schedule / You threw more than jabs / I was like this nigga is amazing / We fucking had to work you / I don’t know what Dr. Sebi vegan Detroit vegetable diet got you thinking we shared the same values or somehow I was less when you / And I was the type of nigga you could be really disrespectful to / I never taught you / I get energetic and joke / But in real conversation I never disrespected you, “laments Lupe.
Apparently, the origin of this clash of bars stems from a conversation the veteran rhymers had on Instagram Live in June about the credentials needed to be considered the best rapper. Lupe claims that a rapper would have to be victorious in the End of the Weak MC Challenge to be crowned with the title. Royce wanted to disagree, however.
Weeks later, around July 15, the talk of the best rapper on IG Live continued with opinions from pioneering engineer Young Guru, Royce 5’9 “, Mickey Factz, and legendary Battle MCs Loaded Lux and Murda Mook. Later the subject became a text space between Royce and Lupe.
Lupe later joined the live chat and then things apparently got a fiery head when the voices got loud and Royce called Lupe a slut, which Lupe mentioned in his aforementioned diss.
Although things intensify between the two masterful rappers, we hope it’s just rap and the friendship hasn’t been tarnished by the lyrical beatings.
