Lupe Fiasco – Lightwork

Forgive us for being just a little late on this one – however, if you haven’t heard it – then thank us all the same! We’re talking about Lupe Fiasco’s ‘Lightwork’ which is from his ‘Friend of the people’ mixtape.

As ever with Lupe, his style and content is riddled with layers metaphors which give multiple meaning to single words. It’s very clever, and you’ll need a close ear to hear everything he says and means as that’s just his typical stuff. The beat used is Bassnectars which was received a vocal by Ellie Goulding and since has been a huge hit. Adding to the beats fame, Lupe covers it in a whole new light if you excuse the pun.
