In advance of the March release of Lasers, Lupe Fiasco released his new single this week. “Words I Never Said” features a great vocal track from Wisconsin folk and hip-hop singer Sklar Grey. The lyrics are classic Lupe, the kind of thing that helps him rise above the usual gats-and-bling minutia you find in mainstream rap.
A sample verse: “If you turn on TV all you see’s a bunch of what-the-fucks / Dude is dating so and so / blabbering bout such and such / And that aint Jersey Shore, homie thats the news / And these the same people that supposed to be telling us the truth / Limbaugh is a racist, Glenn Beck is a racist / Gaza strip was getting bombed, Obama didn’t say shit / Thats why I aint vote for him, next one either.”
