Lupe Fiasco x Ab-Soul - Thorns & Horns

Posted 2 years ago
Floss & Fame
None (Promo Single)

Were you one of the hardcore Lupe Fiasco fans who heaved a sigh of disappointment at the straightforward, radio-ready style of last week’s Snitches? Then Thorns & Horns is for you. A loosie released (according to the artist’s SoundCloud) “JUST BECUZ WE CAN RAP REALLY REALLY GOOD!!!”, the record finds Lupe linking up with TDE flame-spitter Ab-Soul for an all-out display of mic prowess. Though the Chi-town phenom’s spiritual and political preoccupations get air time, the focus here is on multifaceted wordplay; together, Fiasco and his West Coast-repping colleague weave a lyrical web that will take a few visits to Rapgenius to fully untangle. As mentioned above, this joint isn’t part of a larger project, but fans should keep it locked for further info on the headliner’s next studio album, the currently-unscheduled Tetsuo and Youth.
