    Just saw this tweet from Chance talking about a Lupe mixtape from when he was in 5th grade. We’re almost the same age, so that would mean these came out prior to F&L and The Cool, which are classics in my opinion. So I’d be interested in listening to these tapes because I never heard them, and love that era of Lupe. But datpiff is flooded with fan made mixtapes, so I’m not sure, which ones are legit, and which ones are even worth listening to. So if anyone could point me in the right direction I’d appreciate it!

    The three Fahrenheit 1/15 tapes dropped pre-F&L and all are pretty good. He’s dropped some tapes since then like Lost in the Atlantic, but they’re all kinda hit and miss

    Thanks! Yea I’m trying to find them on datpiff, but there’s at least like four different ones on there, and I’m just trying to be sure I’m listening to an official release.

    The official ones are The Truth is Among Us, Revenge of the Nerds, and A Rhyming Ape iirc. He might’ve dropped some more in the series since but I kinda stopped following Lupe in recent years

    RT everything my brudda Winter said, those Fahrenheit tapes are time machines to early 2000s rap. Lupe before his label purgatory days had a certain charm to him, if you loved his approach on F&L you’ll love how he rapped on here.

    Definitely my dude. Thanks! Lupe was so good back then. That Lasers debacle seemed to have jaded him ever since
