Lupe Fiasco drops another new track off his long awaited third full length, “Lasers,” and with “All Black Everything” Lupe pushes his politically minded lyrics further.
LISTEN: Lupe Fiasco and Skylar Grey: “Words I Never Said”
Lupe has a lot to say on “Black” and he’s called it his “favorite record ever.” The track is produced by the Buchanans and in it, Lupe imagines a world with no slavery or racism. “You will never know what you could ever be/If you never try, you will never see/Stayed in Africa, you ain’t never leave/So there were no slaves in our history,” he raps. Lupe is no longer rapping about skateboarding, now he has black history and politics on his mind.
“Lasers” comes out on March 8th, download to “All Black Everything” below. What do you think of the politically vocal Lupe Fiasco?
