Okay, okay, hear me out before you go crazy with your Kendrick Lamar's and your Kanye Wests's and so on. Sure, Lupe Fiasco doesn't make great music like he used to, but there's one factor that has just come to light that has immediately shot him to the top of my favorite rappers list -- He's a Tottenham Hotspur fan!

Not only is he a Spurs supporter, but don't let him catch you talking smack about them because he'll put you in your place by pointing at the Premier League table.

That's right. Mr. Food and Liquor is a Spurs fan and this couldn't make me happier. Sure, I'd rather him go back to making amazing music instead of whatever his last two albums have been, but this is the next best thing.

For the uninitiated, Lupe Fiasco is a brilliant rapper known for his complex lyrics filled with double entendres and metaphors. He's also known for being really controversial with his public opinions. Just imagine Lupe dropping a fire mixtape track on Spurs inability to sign a back-up striker for Harry Kane. It would break the internet for sure.

It fills my heart with joy to know that the rapper that brought us two of the best albums our of generation is a Spurs supporter. Now all that's left is for him to get Dele Alli and Eric Dier in his next music video.
