Lupe Fiasco is currently focusing his efforts on his upcoming Tetsuo & Youth album, but that didn’t stop him from dropping a loosie track from the Food & Liquor II: The Great American Rap Album Pt. 1 sessions. Titled “Piru Blues,” this tune is particularly somber.
“It’s hard to believe again/ Is it something, or maybe nothing?,” Lu asks over soothing chords. That leads into an intricate tale written in a way only few MCs are capable of penning. And this was a throwaway, people.
