There’s two reasons why this brand new track is special to us at whatitdoes hip hop. First, Lupe fiasco is one of the reasons we got started in hip hop culture – his stripped down, real raps and beats gave us a huge love for hip hop. Second, the beat he’s rapping on this has to be one of our most favourite ever – T.R.O.Y. by Pete Rock and C.L. Smooth.
Lupe lines up this track as a debut single and video for his new album ‘Food & Liquor 2’ – and it seems he’s going back to his Chi-town roots to the music that we grew to love. We’re really hoping that Lupe smashes it on his new record as ‘Lasers’ for us was a big disappointment, curving away from his true style.
