Lupe Fiasco has some interesting stuff in store for his upcoming album Tetsuo & Youth. After debuting a new song for the ladies entitled “Drizzy’s Law” and recently saying the project would be uncharacteristically “ratchet,” Lupe revealed in an interview with LA’s Power 106 it might even have something for the basehead in you. Fiasco said there will be a song featuring Chris Brown on the album entitled “Crack” that will talk about smoking that hard white.
“The song with Chris Brown called, “Crack.” It’s about smoking crack, that’s what the song is about,” explained Fiasco. “People are like, ‘How could you make a song about smoking crack?’ I’m like, why not? People smoke crack. It’s a problem. It’s not a problem? Some people love it. Some people hate it. I’m just going to present it to you in a format where, hey this song is about smoking crack. How you deal with it is how you deal with it.”
Lupe went on to explain that the meaning of the record is up to the listener saying, “Does it make you go fight a anti-drug campaign? Does it make you want to smoke crack? Does it build you up as a crack dealer? Does it tear you down as a crack dealer? I don’t know. I don’t really care. But I’m going to make a song about smoking crack called, “Crack.”
