If sharing is caring, Lupe Fiasco must truly love his fans, because he’s been delivering a lot of new music as of late. His latest track is titled “Thorns & Horns,” and it features another lyricist in TDE’s own Ab-Soul.
Seeing these two on the same record makes perfect sense, because many equate their styles of emceeing to be similar. Like Fiasco, the Black Lipped Pastor has a technical delivery and verbose metaphors with references that require some back knowledge to truly grasp. That said, this song definitely has layers.
One the last verse Fiasco and Soul playfully spar with words, while they trade bars a la Styles P and Jadakiss. If anything, it sounds like the Chicago MC is in a very good, as his most recent releases seem to be throwaways. Stay tuned for more info on Lupe Fiasco’s Tetsuo & Youth LP.
