Lupe Fiasco is trying to make a comeback.
Anticipation of Lupe‘s upcoming album Food & Liquor II: The Great American Rap Album Pt. 1 will no doubt rise to a fever pitch off the strength of it’s newest single, Lamborghini Angels. Surprisingly, everything gels together well in this track. The atmospheric synths; The social commentary; Lupe Fiasco‘s flow; The catchy hook … Everything. Nothing feels out of place at all. A great accomplishment especially when you take into consideration the fact that Lupe has had to walk a tight rope trying to please his fans ever since he released his last album Lasers ...
… that nobody liked.
Hell Lupe himself didn’t even like it. He blamed Lasers‘ poor quality on complications he’d been having with his label. Creative differences and typical music industry politics were probably the main culprits. Hopefully these complications have been dealt with now because Food & Liquor II is shaping up to be a definite improvement.
Food & Liquor II: The Great American Rap Album Pt. 1 is scheduled for release late September.
