Now that things are finally starting to go Lupe's way, namely, Atlantic Records finally announced a release date for his album Tetsuo & Youth, the rapper has decided to put out some new music for the fans. The free record, "Lilies" features additional vocals from Sirah, over rich production featuring trumpets and live instrumentation-- really sounds like there's a live band in the studio (whether or not that was actually the case).
Lupe also recently announced a new mixtape, Lost In The Atlantic, and revealed the cover artwork for it. This serves as the first leak off that project, a record which he previewed a snippet of the other day too. Does the full thing live up to your expectations? It's produced by The Buchanans.
Tetsuo & Youth is dropping on January 20th 2015.
Call up heathens and thieves incase police show up
Out the belly of the beast, making the streets blow up
Blowin' in the hands, making the heat hold us in streaks
All my skills on the hilltop, you can hear a quill drop
Spoon full of sugar help the pill pop
