What? You thought Lu was done releasing new music in 2015 after Tetsuo & Youth hit? Think again. The homie is back with another deep and introspective track titled “Something That I Never Had.”
Don’t take it personal, it’s just Lupe getting some things off his chest. Rock out with the don below.

Wow, they took me back with this one. In light of the recent tragedies in Baltimore — and even locally with Rekia Boyd, Lupe decided to reheat one of my favorite records from his undisputed classic, 2006’s Food & Liquor. Prolyfic handled production duties on this one, if you remember correctly.
Despite this record almost being a decade old, the timing is perfect for the re-release which follows Lu’s transistor radio throughout the town. You don’t hear them, though.
So go back to the future with “It Just Might Be Okay” above. Better late than never.

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.

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.
