Lupe Fiasco - SLR (Super Lupe Rap)

Posted 5 years ago
Producer:
Soundtrakk
Album:
Friend of the People Mixtape

Now that Lupe Fiasco‘s superheroically dedicated fanbase have saved the artist’s third album, LASERS, from languishing eternally on the Atlantic Records shelves (knock on wood), it’s time for the Chi-town mainstay to pay his followers back in kind – and what better way to prove he’s a true Friend of the People than a free mixtape? On SLR (Super Lupe Rap), leak numero uno off the forthcoming street release, the artist dons a cape and red briefs to showcase his lyrical superpowers over a bumping Chipmunk-sampled instrumental by Soundtrakk (led off with a snippet from N.E.R.D.‘s Everyone Nose (Remix)). The verses… well, they’re vintage Lupe, with all the dizzying complexity, left-of-center allusions (at one point, he threatens to steal Cornel West’s ‘fro) and outsized braggadocio that entails; “...better than every rapper in the world combined” may be an exaggeration, but then again… maybe not. Fans can expect more lyrical acrobatics from one of rap’s flyest intellects, on FotP, which will presumably arrive sometime prior to the tentative March 8, 2011, release of LASERS.
