Music Preview: Lupe Fiasco - Around My Way (Freedom Ain't Free)


The folks over at CD Universe uploaded a 30 second snippet of the first taste off Food & Liquor 2. No details on the producer yet, but the track samples Pete Rock & CL Smooth's "T.R.O.Y". Make sure to tune in tomorrow to 107.5 WGCI at 5 PM Central when DJ Timbuck2 will premiere the full song!

UPDATE: Song will hit iTunes at midnight.

  6. I love troy one on my all time favorite tracks, but am i the only one that feels he just free-styled over the beat and added a chorus?

    idk it just sound like a mixtape track to me. but then again it is only a snippet.

  8. OHHHHHHH man Lupe's Back.


    This is what we have been waiting for. Hopefully atlantic don't influence the selection of tracks on the album. We need the F&L2 that Lupe intended on his fans to hear.

Don't want your nonesense up in my ear! Rich man, poor man... We've all gotta pay, coz freedom AIN'T free, especially round my waaaay!"

    Ugh I love the beat but he used it already :/.. And I think other peoples beats should be used exclusively for mixtapes *shrugs*. Sounds good so far though.

    ReplyDelete
  25. It's not entirely the same beat though...besides that, it's only a 30 second snippet...

    Who knows how the full thing sounds.

  26. mad groupies on this thread.... calm the fcuk down!

    yea, it's dope. one dude said he might kill someone??

    another called him lord lupe?

    yo it's just music at the end of the day. even the best athlete take the headphones off when they hit the field yadigg? it's got a role in life but it ain't LIFE, yAdiGG?

    damn. it sounds cliche but KEEP IT REAL!

    ReplyDelete
  27. ^^^ lol you take shit TOO SERIOUSLY.

    Have you ever heard of an exaggeration, a hyperbole?

    Do you really think someone would kill someone because they are so excited over a new song?

    Don't take things so seriously all the time every time yAdiGG? KEEP IT REAL!

    smh

  35. So . . . the song is out. In its entirety. And it's golden.
    Also the album comes out on the 25th of September. No July but at least it's this year.
