Lupe Fiasco Isn’t Here For Criticisms On His ‘Black Panther’ Movie Review

Amid all of the box office success and praise for Marvel’s Black Panther, rapper Lupe Fiasco took to Instagram to share he was slightly less impressed than the rest of us. While he didn’t exactly disparage the film, he wasn’t as enthused as most other people have been about it, prompting some media outlets to label him as a hater. Now, the rapper has his own words about the pushback.

“Look at the comments for the article that you put up, and this is Blavity and The Grio,” the rapper said on Instagram Live. “Nobody fucking agreed with you,” he added, reiterating that many across social media didn’t take to their summaries. He would go on to say that besides his controversial comment claiming former president Barack Obama is a terrorist, nobody cares about his opinion on politics. The Grio posted about Lupe’s Black Panther comments with a decidedly critical headline, “Watching Lupe Fiasco trash ‘Black Panther’ proves his cookout invite is revoked,” while Blavity referred to his opinion as unpopular in theirs. This criticism prompted him to also take to Twitter to respond. “Explain to us the correlation between giving BP an A- & failing black as a whole,” he tweeted at a writer for The Grio. Additionally, he called Blavity’s take “malicious.”

  1. Fascinating how Lupe fiasco is quick to criticize the only black movie that doesn't highlight African Americans & Africans in a negative fashion, while over saturated film's genre (slavery/gangster) garners more positive reviews, even presented at the Oscars…suspicious. I assume that's how majority U.S citizens including others choose to view overall race.

  2. tbh the same generic trap beat that was playing between every scene made the movie irritating af. also bad character development, the story was too predictable even for superhero movies, bad cgi, and trash fight scenes. And Michael b Jordan looked like a knock off lil metro so points off for that too. 5.5/10 superhero movie, wasn't terrible, wasn't special

  3. glad everyone is seeing his point for the majority. it was a dope movie I Iiked it and I agree with Iupe. cgi was kind of sketchy and it had some lackluster action scenes. overall still a great movie top 3 marveI ones for me. us as black people boosted it up cause it ours, and thats ok because at the end of the day it always will be. 2x for the A-

  4. Black people are so naive and love to get together and hate on each other , I'm no longer defending you idiots any more I've lost faith , i used to care and i know not all blacks are stereotypical but now i see most are.

  5. He's actually right……Black Panther was built more around hype than it just being a great film. And lowkey, if we really wanna talk about black marvel films. I think Blade was a way better black marvel film then Black Panther.
    Black Panther only had great effects, a solid story line with great black actors surrounding the film, but something about the movie just wasn't right…….And Lupe took the words right out of my mouth!
