*Update: Pete Rock & Lupe have squashed the “beef” and are supposed to work together now. Pumped for that.
Lupe Fiasco - Around My Way (Freedom Ain’t Free)
Chicago’s Lupe Fiasco has announced a sequel to Food & Liquor — one of my favorite albums of the last decade. I’m gonna hope and pray for some classic “Kick, Push” and “Daydreamin’” caliber awesomeness from Lupe. This first single is a step in the right direction (even if Pete Rock doesn’t like it). Food & Liquor II is due in September.
