Lupe Fiasco unveils a new track, “Jean Grey” co-produced by Tainy, Manuel Lara & Albert Hype. Listen, stream, buy the song.
Lupe Fiasco has had his hands full of late, having found himself embroiled in a heated disagreement with podcast co-host Royce Da 5’9″. And while it’s unclear as to whether or not the two lyricists will settle their differences in the battle rap arena, Lupe has opted to keep things moving with the release of a new Instagram freestyle titled “Jean Grey.”
“Eid Mubarak Gift To The Fans,” he captions, as he takes to Kali Uchis’ “Telepatía” and casually puts on a lyrical clinic. “I’m back to bass like he Derrick Hodge, say my prayers like I’m scared of God,” he raps. “In my backyard doing samurai moves, wearing pods / he’s kinda square and odd.” At this stage, it’s safe to say that rapping has become second nature to the martial-arts aficionado, and it’s always interesting to hear the new ways he approaches an instrumental.

I’m back to bass like he Derrick Hodge
Say my prayers like I’m scared of God,
In my backyard doing samurai moves, wearing pods
He’s kinda square and odd
