No lie, Lupe’s “Adoration of the Magi” is one of the deepest lyrical exercises of the past few years. Seriously. It’s one so intricate, I didn’t even catch a few of the meanings and layers until someone broke it down for me. Yeah, sometimes lifelong rap fans miss a thing or two. I’m so sorry.
So to keep up with the pace of the track, Lu drops an equally thought-provoking video. He’s always pushing forward, whether you’re paying attention or not. So sit back, watch, and really spend some time with it. Also, grab that Tetsuo & Youth album now.
*And oh yeah, it’s NSFW depending on where you work.
After giving us a previously unreleased joint earlier today, Lupe doubles up and liberates the official video for the Nikki Jean-assisted “Madonna (And Other Mothers In The Hood)” from Tetsuo & Youth.
Glad to see that this record received the visual treatment, as it was one of my personal favorites from Tetsuo & Youth. Great record, great accompanying video. Watch it above and be sure to grab Tetsuo & Youth on iTunes if you haven’t yet — it’s well worth it.
Produced by 1500 Or Nothin’
Lu liberates a loosie from the stellar Food & Liquor II album. I’m digging this one, the lyrics and the vibe of the track. This is not cutting room floor material. No siree.
Google Atomic Misphilosophy, then listen to “Atomic Misphilosophy.” It’s below now. Thanks to Lu for this one.
New Orleans emcee Dee-1 joined Lupe Fiasco on the Tetsuo & Youth Preview tour in 2013 and this past Monday, Lu decided to return the favor for the Chicago stop on Dee’s first headlining tour.
While at Schubas for the Chicago stop on Dee’s 3’s Up Tour, Lu surprised everyone in attendance by performing and introducing Dee. Missed it? Well, check out the clip above.
A one-minute-and-change snippet of this dropped last summer, and tonight we get “Stellar Light” in its entirety courtesy of Lu’s Soundcloud page. This was the song Lupe was to release in part of his position with the US Men’s Soccer Team/World Cup. Soccer season back? Might could be. Enter the light below.
