Lupe Fiasco smothers his otherwise inoffensive lovelorn musings in ornate political metaphors in his latest single “Battle Scars,” featuring Australian crooner/producer Guy Sebastian doing his best Bruno Mars. This would be the fourth single from Lupe’s highly anticipated new album, Lupe Fiasco’s Food & Liquor II: The Great American Rap Album Pt. 1 (yes, part one of the second part). So far we’ve heard the Pete Rock-sampling “Around My Way,” the vernacular-attacking “Bitch Bad,” and the utterly uncomfortable “Lamborghini Angels.” Another single called “How Dare You” is set to drop on September 11th – the whole album will be available on September 25th.
Lupe Fiasco: “Battle Scars” Video
Charlotte Aitchison’s second LP is a warhead, a sonic sour bomb that conceals sneering attitude and caustic kiss-offs beneath an initially shimmering pop sheen.
From his still-unannounced new album, featuring Thundercat, Bilal and production from Astronote.
With help from Vampire Weekend’s Rostam Batmanglij and an amazing piano.
These guys would probably get along if they ever met.
Another track from Future Brown’s upcoming self-titled record.
