Lupe Fiasco continues to make the English language his bitch. His verses are always packed with insane metaphors, razor-sharp wordplay and double meanings that require repeat listenings to unravel their secrets. This is no different. In an era where most music is instantly forgettable, someone who makes you use your head is always appreciated.
Apparently this is from Food & Liquor II: The Great American Rap Album, which will be Lupe’s fourth album – even though his third album Lasers still hasn’t been released, I wonder if it will ever see the light of day.
