Lupe Fiasco ft. Kenna - What U Want (Chad Hugo Remix)

DJBooth_logo2x
  • Artist: Lupe Fiasco
  • Track: What U Want (Chad Hugo Remix)
  • Feat. Kenna
  • Producer: Chad Hugo
  • Album: Foolcast 022: Missile Command

With the sheer amount of time that Lupe Fiasco's junior album was in the works, not to mention the confused multiplicity of forces ultimately brought to bear on its tracklist, it should come as no surprise that some quality cuts fell by the wayside. Today, we present one such specimen: What U Want, a Lasers outtake included in remixed form on the latest entry in Fools Gold's Foolcast mix series. Neptunes beatsmith Chad Hugo handles production duties, trading the unfinished original's relatively sedate groove for a more upbeat, club-ready blend of synth stabs and four-on-the-floor percussion. For his part, Lupe lets the beat breathe, dropping minimal yet tuneful sung-rapped bars dedicated to a shawty whose natural habitat is the urban nightlife. Tying it all together is Star Trak stalwart Kenna, who lends his inimitably chill vocal stylings to the record's hook. So, readers, is this glossy revamp Fools Gold, or is it the real deal? If you're digging it, then more freshness awaits on Foolcast 022: Missile Command, out now online.
