Video: Lupe Fiasco - "Around My Way (Freedom Ain't Free)"


Lupe Fiasco’s gone through some woes securing the Pete Rock sample from “Around My Way (Freedom Ain’t Free)” but that hasn’t stopped him and director Alex Nazari from putting together a great video for the track, Lupe’s first single from his upcoming Food and Liquor II: The Great American Rap Album Pt. 1. Sounds a little lofty, yeah, but Lupe doesn’t let up over the song’s four and a half minutes, riffing on poverty and colonialism with energetic fervor, and the video is tailor-made to match. Check it out. The record drops September 25.
