Lupe Fiasco delivered a jam in “Next To It,” a satirical jab at how women are used as tools to promote products and people who are never satisfied. With the assistance of his co-pilot Ty Dolla $ign (which is even more ironic), the veteran wordsmith returns with a simple visual for the Tetsuo & Youth single.
Fueled by lines like, “Anything look good with a t*tty next to it/ And if the t*tty got a face that’s pretty next to it,” Fiasco presents an array of exaggerated, yet semi-truthful scenarios throughout the treatment. In some scenes, the duo can be seen around roughly 15 women at a time, thus reaffirming the aforementioned lyric. But trust us when we say that it gets even more entertaining from there.
In all actuality, Fiasco could be the Bobby Fischer of the Rap game, so don’t be surprised if this thought provoking record impacts in clubs. See the treatment for “Next To It” below.
