Lupe Fiasco - "Adoration Of The Magi" (feat. Crystal Torres)
Lupe Fiasco is quickly creeping up on the release of his long-awaited Tetsuo & Youth LP and today we have to the pleasure of putting our ears on the wavy new joint "Admiration Of The Magi," featuring the supreme talents of one Crystal Torres. Phased-out drums and Torres' patented horny horn arrangements lead the charge of gentle electric keys on this DJ Dahi production with Fiasco lacing introspective words together in an on-point display of verbal athletics. If you're not familiar with all of the players on this one, it's actually quite the roster. Dahi, of course, should be known for his work with Kendrick Lamar on the GKMC standout "Money Trees", Drake's anthem of impropriety "Worst Behavior" and most recently on Big Sean's hit single "IDFWY." Torres can be found sharing stages with Beyoncé as her right-hand trumpet lady and has worked with Jay Z, Jhene Aiko and a slew of A-listers. Lupe's Tetsuo & Youth LP is due out on January 20th and has already seen a laundry list of uncharacteristically atmospheric joints for you to knock to. Preorder the record on iTunes today and listen to Lupe Fiasco's latest drop "Adoration Of The Magi" below.
