Lupe Fiasco x Guy Sebastian "Battle Scars" [Live Video]

Lenny Kravitz, Grace Jones, Lauryn Hill, Lion Babe, Thundercat, SZA & More Rock The Afropunk Festival 2015 in Brooklyn, NY.

Lupe Fiasco visited Conan O'Brien last night to drop a heartfelt performance of his hit "Battle Scars" with Aussie pop powerhouse Guy Sebastian. The song is the fourth single from his latest release, Food and Liquor II: The Great American Rap Album Pt. 1 and feels like a little bit of a comeback to see him perform it on prime time. Lupe recently made headlines for a performance cut short following controversial opinions the star expressed about the POTUS during inaugural celebrations. Compounding that was increasingly heavy fire from fans who have criticized him for what they perceive to be his disinterest in rap as of late. In a world where you're only funky as your last cut it had begun to seem like Lupe Fiasco was in serious need of a win. Buoyed by a live band and an amazing vocal performance from Guy Sebastian, he silenced doubters with a stellar performance that made it absolutely clear that he has not lost a step. Only he can say what the future holds. For now, just enjoy the music. Food and Liquor II: The Great American Rap Album Pt. 1 is available now, purchase on iTunes here.
