Battle of the Beats: Lupe Fiasco vs. K-Os

This one was sitting right under my nose, but you should be honored by my lateness!

Welcome to another Hip-Hop Edition of Battle of the Beats! This time we're seeing just how well Lupe Fiasco's tale of industry loathing and soul-searching holds up against K-Os's convenient excuse for straight dudes to dance to House music. Kidding!

Aside from the similar song titles, we're sure both of these tracks appeal to the non-mainstream, anti-bling and booty-shaking aesthetic that continues to attract 3-5 readers to our site daily! I'm partial to the Soho "Hot Music" beat and without having consulted my soulful cohort, I'm sure Butta is too. But the important thing here is, as always, what do you think? (Trust me, Lupe can take anything you throw his way.)

Lupe Fiasco: "Superstar"

K-Os: "Superstar Pt. 0"

  1. K-OS all day
    Yes, the beat is straight ripped from the original, but his singing makes it for me.
    Plus, have you seen the video?

  2. This is real easy!! K-OS. i have always loved this song.

  3. hip-hop is my soul but house is my heart so of course k-os gets it! plus, i still hear lupe f'in up the tribe lyrics at the honors show.

  4. Man, this aint even a competition. That K-Os song is sick. The way that he rapped over "Hot Music" is ridiculous. This makes me want to break out into a soul clap.
    And I'm with Asha...Lupe is still on punishment for that Tribe/HHH mess.

  5. let me say this:
    it is very difficult to rhyme over Soho's hot music. many have tried and failed miserably.... but K OS kills it.
