Lupe Fiasco’s new album, Drill Music In Zion, is finally here. After teasing singles like “AUTOBOTO” with Nayirah and “DRILL MUSIC IN ZION,” the Chicago icon released the full 10-song project on Friday.

The album begins with an evocative spoken-word piece by Ayesha Jaco on the track “THE LION’S DEEN,” and so Lupe’s first bars are found on the low-key, jazz-infused “GHOTI.” The rapper doesn’t disappoint, weaving through topics like Michael Jackson, Neuralink, Adam and Eve, and Wonder Woman all in the span of under two minutes. His lyrics fit the moody and introspective horn-based instrumental, revolving around the dangers that lie in success. “Egyptian museum, they keep the kings in crates,” Lupe raps. “Thrones out on loan and they keep their rings in safes.”

Though it’s understated, “GHOTI” is a track on which Lupe is showboating, illustrating how effortlessly he can bounce between disparate ideas to create a compelling narrative. It should be no surprise that he’s landed a job teaching rap at MIT.

Lyrics

[Intro]
Yeah-yeah, yeah-yeah
I said, yeah-yeah-yeah, yeah-yeah-yeah, yeah, yeah (Uh)

[Verse 1]
Assassin’s Creed, rapping it back indeed
Like a mansion that’s lacking fees, tapping the blackest keys
Capture catastrophes like a camera feed
Ball like a can of peas, fall like Michael Jackson on anaesthes’
Mistaking maidens for manatees
Neuralink is now pirating all your fantasies
Mistaking the sanitation for sanity
My mistake, I’m mistaking staying for cannot leave

[Interlude]
I see your color (Yeah, yeah)

[Verse 2]
Assassin’s Creed, lasso to the hammer squeeze (I see your color)
Thor and Wonder Woman, battle at the apple trees
Or like Adam-Eve happened at a Applebees
Y’all can go half on a sample platter you can have with cheese
Battered covered data with the added tees
Giant leaps, beware where that landing ladder leads
‘Cause you can walk up there
But don’t take off your mask, and try and talk up there, yeah
‘Cause ain’t no screams in space
Egyptian museum, they keep the kings in crates
Thrones out on loan and they keep their rings in safes
You decide, apple pie or the fries come with the snake
Prosperous gospel, got choirs all on the case
Poverty pimpin’ angel wings, flies all on her face
Wave a K until they die and then ride all on their wake
Shooting Trakk on the track, I ride all on the freights
Like I’m shoestring, they say you can’t escape when rich
It’s just a bigger plate, they catching bait with fish
