Lupe isn't really "butt-buddies" with Jay-Z... he just respects him.

Lupe's major influence is Nas without question, especially the album "It Was Written."

The front of Lupe's Food & Liquor album cover is stylized to look like that of Persian calligraphy. Along with this, Lupe begins Food & Liquor by reciting an Islamic prayer: A'uzu billahi min ash shaitani r rajimi Bismi 'llahi 'r-rahmani 'r-rahim, which translates to "I seek refuge from Satan the accursed... (And I Begin) In the name of God, the most gracious, the most merciful."

So? Rakim's been saying that since he's started, and get it right if you are going to say it, it's:

"Bismillah, al-ra7man, al-ha7heem"

It's been in my facebook for months, it looks like this:

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

Ohh, and I guess you then respect a guy who "speaks" Arabic but likes Persian artistry, that's not ironic....
I'm so proud of you guys :touched:
