Is Lupe Fiasco Back?
I was mildly obsessed with Lupe Fiasco‘s amazing song “Kick, Push” off his 2006 debut album Food & Liquor, as well as that album as a whole. But 2006 was a long time ago and I haven’t been excited about the rapper since then.
However, with his new single “The Show Goes On” he does something smart: samples from Modest Mouse’s 2004 smash hit “Float On.” The hook on that song is unforgettable and catchy and wonderful and Lupe puts it to good use. I can’t wait to see what else is on his next album Lasers, due out March 8. Check out the video here:
