Lupe Fiasco’s Got a Story to Tell on New Song “Jump”
Lupe Fiasco drops the newest single off his upcoming album, DROGAS Light, which is set to release on Feb. 10. "Jump" takes a turn from the melodic Jake Torrey-assisted “Wild Child” record he released last week, and incorporates a lot more bounce.
"Gold medals, them my role models/Rollin' old models, lowered old schools/Flowin' cold and goin' gold follows/Flower bearin', call it petals to the floor/Power sharin', call it devils to the door/Power, power, 'til ain't no devils anymore," he raps.
Despite proclaiming on Twitter last month that he was retiring because he caught flack from the Anti-Defamation League for some lines about Jewish execs on the song titled “N.E.R.D.,” Lupe is moving forward with DROGAS Light. The album also features appearances from Ty Dolla $ign, Rick Ross and Big K.R.I.T., and he's already released singles like “Pick Up the Phone” and “Made in the U.S.A."
The Food & Liquor MC is also gearing up to release two more albums in 2017 called DROGAS and Skulls, hopefully.
In between recording music and playing shows, Lupe Fiasco found time to review Ab-Soul's latest album Do What Thou Wilt, heaping praise on the TDE wordsmith's grasp of language.
