The Chicago rapper burns slow and even on a politically-charged single
Though it was admittedly not his best offering, Lupe Fiasco‘s latest album, DROGAS Light, marked a reunion for the rapper and “Kick, Push” producer, Soundtrakk.
Last night, coming off a live chat on Instagram dedicated to the five-year anniversary of Food & Liquor 2, Fiasco shared the full-melt and deeply-political loosie, “Running From President,” a track produced by his longtime collaborator and fellow Windy City native. Here the only swords Fiasco wields are those of a strictly lyrical sort, evenly-paced and daggering nonetheless. The last few months have been littered with new heat from Fiasco, who gave his own 2017 album an unremarkable grade, though it remains to be seen whether he’ll be able to pull off the promised trilogy of albums. Our math says there’s still two to go. Suppose we’ll have to wait and see.
Hear Lupe Fiasco rekindle the magic with Soundtrakk on “Running From President” above and hold tight for his next transmission.
