Lupe Fiasco Drops Video Game Bars in 2016 EVO ‘Street Fighter V’ Promo
It's no secret that Lupe Fiasco is a big fan of Street Fighter V. As a result, it makes sense that the Chicago MC would make a track used on the video game's new promotional clip for its 2016 EVO tournament.
Lupe spits, "He was talking that on stream/He was talking that online/You can say whatever you want/But you ain't talking that right now/Maybe you can tell yourself exactly how to take this game back."
The Food & Liquor rapper continues, "My sticks, like it clean keep it wiped off/On the mic, but I fight, call me Mike Ross/It's about to go crazy cut the lights off/Done killin' him, then I'mma come o'er there and fight y'all."
Meanwhile, the hook goes, "Looks like we gon' be fightin' in the streets/That's what it's lookin' like to me/So you stay right there/As we bow our heads and say our prayers/It's a lot of killaz in this room, mama/I hope I make it out of pools, mama/I'mma show 'em what to do, mama/I'mma take 'em all to school, mama."
The EVO Street Fighter V tournament wrapped up on Sunday night (July 17) in Las Vegas. A participant who goes by Infiltration took home the crown as the last gamer standing in the tournament, which featured around 5000 contestants. In case you missed it, in February, Lupe beat the No. 1-ranked Street Fighter player in the world. There were rumors that Lupe's opponent Daigo Umeara threw the match, but nothing was confirmed.
