You know Lupe Fiasco is sitting on a strong album, as he has yet to release his recently-recorded ten-track project. In fact, Lupe previously likened his untitled body of work to Nas’ Illmatic, a promising sign of what’s to come. For now, Lu has opted to keep his fans satisfied with another freestyle, this time drawing inspiration from Drake’s recent Certified Lover Boy album.
“Just left album mode with me and my n**ga Trakk / and Drake dropped this shit, got me thinking about going back,” he spits, over the bouncy Masego / Beatles sample. He also makes sure to highlight the work of Kanye West, who previously stood as one of Lupe’s trusted collaborators — anyone remember the short-lived run of Child Rebel Soldiers? “I listened to Donda, I also listened to Kanye’s mama in real life,” raps Lupe. “That means I’m real twice.”
