Lupe Fiasco: "S.L.R. (Super Lupe Rap)"

New music from Lupe Fiasco, premiered by Fake Shore Drive. Andrew's got the full story over at his site, so go check it if you want the lengthy version. In short, though, apparently Soulja Boy took to XXL in an interview and referenced Lupe's rapping, saying, "I don't want to be super Lupe Fiasco lyrical." Lupe took this in jest, then quickly turned around and spazzed out for 6 minutes on this Soundtrakk-produced song.

It's always comforting to see musicians be uncompromising with their art. Lupe is one of those rappers. He won't "Dumb It Down", but the end result is often much more rewarding because of that. Plus, it's not like Lupe doesn't have a huge fan base. The Cool went gold, after all. Lupe might not cater to the same audience as Wacka Flocka Flame, but I don't think he wants to, either. It should stay that way.
