Lupe Fiasco - Superstar

I'm feeling this song....Rare Art! It's great to see an artist that actually makes music for the love of music and not money (look how he's feeling the music in the video). Lupe quote:
"Like Jay-Z told me. He was like, don’t sacrifice your art for some fame. You ain’t gotta dumb down; you ain’t always gotta do that. Don’t chase radio. That’s one thing that always stuck: “Don’t chase radio.”

This is the third verse that is not in the video (pay attention because he's not going to 'dumb it down' for you);
So chauffeur chauffeur come and take me away
Cuz I been standing in this line
For like five whole days
Me and security ain't getting along
And when I got to the front they told me all of the tickets were gone
So just take me home where the mood is mellow
And the roses are thrown
M&M's are yellow
And the light bulbs around my mirror don't flicker
Everybody gets a nice autograph picture
One for you and one for your sister
Who had to work tonight but is an avid listener
Every songs a favorite song
And mikes don't feed back
All the reviewers say you need to go and see that
And everybody claps cuz everybody is pleased
Then they all take the stage and start performing for me
