So I’m not really sure what I want to do with this blog, or blogging in general. At some point, I plan on getting a domain, hosting; the whole shebang. But for some reason I can’t decide exactly what I want to blog about. Should I start my own music blog and concentrate on that? Or should I neglect my love of music and blog about topics like social media?
So many questions, so few answers.
But alas, here is my first music post on this blog:
Lupe Fiasco’s latest album is set to be released this March, but the whole process has been anything less than smooth. As recently as last year, Lupe and his label Atlantic were at odds over the content of the album. Apparently Lupe wanted to focus on political issues, but his label wanted something more mainstream. Although the issue was resolved, this song definitely has some deep, political rapping.
Over a bumping, synth laden beat, Lupe wastes no time getting waste deep into what he believes are the dirty secrets of America,
I really think the war on terror is a bunch of bulls#$*/just a poor excuse for you to use up all your bullets/how much money does it really take to really make a full clip/9-11, building seven, did they really pull it/”
If you think that’s a mouthful, wait until you listen to the rest of the song. Lupe also touches on topics like education, Fox News, and jihad.
But after listening to this, I have to say that I can’t wait till Lasers comes out. If Lupe is spitting political gems like this track, I want to hear them.
