Lupe Fiasco's 'Friend of the People' Mixtape Drops Tomorrow!
The hip-hop wordsmith has given his followers a taste of what's to come with "Lightwork." On the song, Fiasco rhymes one continuous verse over a Bassnectar remix of Ellie Goulding's "Lights." He throws in his classic double-meaning lines like "touch more souls than a dance floor" before going on to mention how his super lyrics are thought provoking, "Funny how I'm only sick if you never catch a thing / Argue with your friends over what really the record means / Back and forth about its course / with professors refereeing."
Friend of the People
was original scheduled to be released on Christmas day 2009 asLasers
laid in limbo, but Fiasco's activism was the cause for cancellation. Now the rapper's fifth mixtape will serve to whet the appetite for fans as they anticipate the release of his next studio albumFood & Liquor II
. Whether or not the new mixtape will have songs that never made it through thecontentious process
that came to defineLasers
remains to be seen.
Keep it posted on Thanksgiving tomorrow on the musician's website or follow him on Twitter to find that out as well as when and where to get the goods. Anytime there's new music from Lupe Fiasco, that's something to be thankful for.
