VIDEO: Lupe Fiasco– “Around My Way (Freedom Ain’t Free)”

30 Jun

 

let me start this post by saying that anyone who knows me knows that i USED to be an adamant Lupe Fan.  but in recent years, not so much.  Lupe has lost me & it seems that he’s lost the music too.  but i think i saw a glimmer of hope when this video dropped yesterday. first off, what’s not to love about Lupe over a Pete Rock instrumental? secondly, his content is back.  lupe is one of the greatest lyricists of our time but i think he allowed himself to be dummed down a bit for commercial success.  but if he keeps coming with music like this, i forsee him being my favorite rapper… again.

i hope to see more music like this on Food & Liquor 2 which is set to release September 25th. watch the video for “Around My Way (Freedom Ain’t Free)” below.
