Lupe Fiasco Says Big K.R.I.T. "Renegaded" Him & Rick Ross on "DROGAS Light"

Be excited for this K.R.I.T. verse - we are.

In early 2015, Lupe Fiasco dropped off his fifth studio album Tetsuo & Youth, which was met with definitive praise. Since then Lupe has parted ways with Atlantic Records, threatened retirement (again), and threatened Genius, but right now he's completely locked in on delivering all of the new music he's been promising for months.

First up is DROGAS Light (or Don’t Ruin Us God Said), an album which the Chicago native first announced this past April. On Twitter, he’s referred to DROGAS Light as the “Apps & Salad” portion in his forthcoming trilogy: DROGAS Light, DROGAS and Skulls.

Earlier today, a Lupe fan asked the emcee on Twitter, “Who has/had the best verse in any of your features? @LupeFiasco,” to which Lupe responded: 

Obviously, Lupe saying that Big K.R.I.T. "Renegaded" him and Rick Ross on DROGAS Light is a tip of the hat to Eminem, who effectively murdered him on his own shitbested Jay Z on The Blueprint standout “Renegade.” Both Em’s flow and his use of assonant rhymes on the track are exceptional.

Given K.R.I.T.'s track record, besting another emcee is really just an average day for the Mississippi emcee, but after such a statement from Lupe—who has a pen game that often borders on near-genius—we have reason to be overwhelmingly excited.

If the trio's forthcoming collaborative effort is anything like K.R.I.T.'s recent Holy Sh*t-worthy verse from Kenneth Whalum's "Might Not Be OK," we're in for a real treat.
