Lupe Fiasco freestyles at UCLA’s JazzReggae Festival 2011 (Video)


At the end of his set at UCLA’s JazzReggae Festival 2011 which also saw performances from Talib Kweli, Little Dragon, Bilal, Quadron, Pharoahe Monch and more, Lupe Fiasco fired off an extended freestyle session backed by his band. Bouncing around various subjects including the Gaza strip, politics, the late Gil Scott-Heron, firing shots at Obama and more there was one line that Lupe dropped that seems to have caught the bloggersphere’s ears and fingertips…”I don’t need no duo, I’m going H.A.M all by my god damn self….”. Referencing the infamous Jay-Z & Kanye track “H.A.M”, many folks seem to have taken this as a diss aimed at the duo.

Watch the freestyle below

Dear internet,
C’mon son! The kid was just playing on words, we do that in hip hop, Remember?? I can’t honestly see this as any kind of diss.
What do you guys think?
