Lupe Fiasco “Piru Blues”
Lupe is the first to kick off Christmas Day with some surprise new music. This one is a leftover from the Food & Liquor 2 sessions as storytelling Lu takes your mind places with three quality verses spliced with a melancholy chorus (from an uncredited singer). Both the hook and first verse reeled me in, with the third verse also notable to appropriately take us home. Keep a close ear to this one, produced by DJ Simonsayz. And thanks for the Christmas gift, Lupe. I, for one, will be runnin’ this back today and beyond.
