watch: lupe fiasco – deliver (feat. ty dolla sign)

lu’s “deliver” reminds me of “gotta eat.” while the video and song itself take on the lyrics’ literal meanings, it’s definitely about something much bigger than that – bringing light to the perils of the rougher parts of the chi.

tetsuo & youth is out jan. 20.

listen: lupe fiasco – haile selassie (feat. nikki jean)

it’s #FBF for lupe fiasco, apparently. for his latest outing, he takes us back to the days of the cool, brings nikki jean on “haile selassie.” that not enough? no other than longtime collaborator soundtrakk behind the boards for this gem.

his new tape, lost in the atlantic ocean, is coming soon.

listen: lupe fiasco – lillies (feat. sirah)

lupe will forego the release of tetsuo and youth (which is now slated for a january 2015 release) with a mixtape, lost in the atlantic ocean. this one is assumed to be taken from the latter release, which will drop sometime in november (i’m guessing).

watch: lupe fiasco – next to it (feat. ty dolla sign)

lupe fiasco’s lead single from tetsuo and youth has a lot more commercial appeal than i understand, but having ty on board definitely helps. no one knows what to expect from lu’s fifth studio LP, but the fact that people are still even remotely interested says plenty.

the album will be out later this year.

listen: lupe fiasco – mission

taking a break from controversy and rebelling against the industry is lupe fiasco, who’s dropped “mission,” a song for the ‘Stand Up 2 Cancer’ movement. the intro is an inspiring bit, featuring the voices of plenty of survivors of cancer speaking freely about the topic.

the song is available on itunes now, as well as SU2C’s homepage.
