  • The song Superstar from the American rapper Lupe Fiasco's sophomore album The Cool was the breakthrough song that put Lupe at the number one spot on my favorite rappers of all time list
  • I first heard this song through my friend's cell phone ring tone and immediately questioned who sang the song because the hook by Matthew Santos, a fellow First and Fifteenth, caught my attention and appealed to my taste of music
  • He wanted to go back to his regular lifestyle where The moon is mellow, roses are grown, M and Ms are yellow and the light bulb behind my mirrors don't flicker taken from the lyrics in the song, he did not want to be glowing with thousands upon thousands of camera flashes and the media eying his every move
  • He wanted to be a regular celebrity and enjoy every stress free moment because being followed every second was too much

      The song Superstar from the American rapper Lupe Fiasco’s sophomore album “The Cool” was the breakthrough song that put Lupe at the number one spot on my favorite rappers of all time list. I first heard this song through my friend’s cell phone ring tone and immediately questioned who sang the song because the hook by Matthew Santos, a fellow First and Fifteenth, caught my attention and appealed to my taste of music. After wards i then went on Youtube and google searched ” Superstar by Lupe Fiasco” and proceeded to watch the music video. The music video was crafted so beautifully and flowed throughout.

      The song is about is mostly about the hindrance of being in the main spotlight of


      Super stardom. One scene in the music video showed Lupe Fiasco sitting in a limousine waiting to leave because he was tired of all the obstacles that came with being in the limelight of success. He wanted to go back to his regular lifestyle where “The moon is mellow, roses are grown, M and Ms are yellow and the light bulb behind my mirrors don’t flicker” taken from the lyrics in the song, he did not want to be glowing with thousands upon thousands of camera flashes and the media eying his every move. He wanted to be a regular celebrity and enjoy every stress free moment because being followed every second was too much. His lyrical wittiness combined with his ...

      • outstanding use of metaphors devises Superstar into a lyrical masterpiece and one of the classic songs of “The Cool”.

        The hook by Lupe’s label mate Matthew Santos is really catchy and i occasionally catch myself singing the hook randomly at work. “If you are what you say your are, you’re a Superstar” is a catchy and simple phrase that is easy to remember. The literal meaning of this hook is that even though he wants to leave the spotlight he still maintains to responsibility as an artist to satisfy his fans that have been with him from the beginning. I’ve realized that meaning of the song after numerous listens to the track, its a trendy catchy semi mainstream song yet delivers

        a deep lyrical vivid message that relates to the real world of the music industry. Many artists feel the same as Lupe did in the song. Everything in this song is perfect, the beat, the message, the melody and most importantly the image the whole song creates in your mind whenever it comes on in your iPod. The mood and feeling it births in your mind is powerful and personally makes me feel as if I’m a superstar and the whole positive vibe that retains with me during the whole day. I truly love this song and even when I’m feeling under the clouds whenever i listen to this song, if lifts up my mood and returns my motivation to succeed in whatever I do.
