I Gotcha (Edited, Single)
Released: Sep 2006
Label: Atlantic Records
"I Gotcha" is the hip-hop equivalent of Frosted Shredded Wheat. On the surface, it's covered in sugary, Pharell-filled pop; but flip it and you'll discover Lupe Fiasco's nutritious, conscious-rap lyrics. As Lupe says on the song's ridiculously catchy hook, this is for people sick of the "pimps, macks and mobsters." Normally, these sentiments are excuses for failure, but Lupe might be genuinely charismatic and talented enough to escape the pull of traditional rap archetypes. Also, check out the video -- which looks like an Atari game programmed by Nigo from Bathing Ape. Lupe Fiasco - I Gotcha 2007-10-05
