This new Lupe mixtape was needed in the game right now. After Lasers dropped I didn’t know what to except from the Cool Young Lu, but then I went back and listened to his first two albums that were near classic in my opinion. Lu’s collab with Bassnectar also proved to me that Lupe can definitely still rap. Lupe’s samples alone on this mixtape make it worth listen. Artists that are sampled on this tape include Skrillex, Nero, Bassnectar, Kaskade, Ellie Goulding, Justice, M83, The Glitch Mob, Sebastian, and John Coltrane. What is better then listening to a new Lupe Fiasco mixtape while eating Turkey? Enjoy and Happy Thanksgiving!! The cover above isn’t the real artwork, hit the jump to check out the real cover art (JESUS?) and the official tracklist. Also stream the mixtape before downloading it after the jump courtesty of Datpiff.
Today is a good day, I got new songs from two of my favorite rappers(Immortal Technique and Lupe Fiasco). I’ve been waiting for this collaboration since the Bass Island concert at Governors Island this summer, where Lupe opened for Bassnectar. I saw videos of them performing a track together and heard rumors of a possible collaboration and I’m pretty happy that it is finally out. Lupe did well rapping over this great dubstep remix of Ellie Goulding’s popular track ‘Lights’. ’LightWork’ is Lu’s first track off of Friend Of The People (Lupe’s upcoming mixtape) that will be dropping on Thanksgiving. Lupe is back.
