Earlier this week, Lupe Fiasco shared new artwork for his single "Mission," which officially drops tomorrow on iTunes. But because of the world wide web, we're able to get the track as soon as it became Monday, May 19th in New Zealand. Listen to "Mission" right now.
The first single from Lupe Fiasco's upcoming album Tetsuo & Youth, "Mission" begins with a 90 second long spoken word intro, consisting of overlapping audio of people talking about their struggles with cancer. Fiasco also name-drops the disease in his rapping, and so it's very clear what the point of this song is.
Stay tuned for more from Tetsuo & Youth.
Cell phones and your lighters
Need you to put 'em up higher
So many candles on her birthday cake
Might set the thing on fire
