Lupe Fiasco Takes a Cue From Anthony Kiedis on New Track

Give it away, give it away, give it away now. Lupe Fiasco recently took to his MySpace blog to speak on his new Red Hot Chili Peppers inspired song, “Solar Midnight.” [Listen here]

The track, which appears as a bonus track on the New Moon movie soundtrack, apparently takes it’s cue from Red Hot Chili Peppers front man Anthony Kiedis.

“’Solar Midnite’ is my first commercial release that I actually produced as well as wrote,“ the Chi-town MC wrote. “The New Moon team asked me if I could do a song specifically for the film. They invited me to an early screening of the unfinished film from which I pulled different elements that I thought would translate into a great song. I pulled in vocalist and bassist Graham Burris and acclaimed musician Matt Nelson to help fill it out my vision musically and ‘joila’ Solar Midnite was born. The song basically deals with the chaotic love story that takes place between the characters. It’s more on the rock side of my musical catalog and comes straight from my die hard fanhood of Red Hot Chili Peppers and Anthony Keidis, one of my FAVORITE RAPPERS.”
