Looks like Lupe Fiasco really wants to do a project with Jay Elec…
“I reached out to him a couple of days ago with some real serious ideas,” Lupe said. ” ‘Let’s put a program together. Something that works out and makes sense for the both of us.’ He’s a very talented MC. One of the few MCs that I actually listen to what they’re saying. I don’t listen to 98 percent of the rappers out there. But he’s one of the MCs I listen to and I’m inspired to do so. A collaboration is in the works.”
Lupe Fiasco also wanted to just do 3 albums…so…
Peace, and miss love.
Based on the 2 or 3 tracks i’ve heard from this cat…he’s my new favorite (coming up) rapper…
Here’s a video from the interview with Angela Yee where he spits to “On Top Of The World”, which is the song he tried to get to Jay-Z for American Gangster. It’s worth a watch! Because too many people deny music based on the fact that most of it is terrible…this is bananas!!!!!
Here’s the vid from the same interview where he is denied by Jay and his entourage. Pretty inspiring actually imo.
if you haven’t heard any of his music…here’s the song “Lights Please” which I think is what eventually got him on with Jay-Z.
yea, i’ve got my eye on him…
Peace, and on top of the world love!
this is a really beautifully done video. i love high contrast black and white. they did a good job painting a picture of being “young” with the shots of the kids playing football, playing in the park, the couple chasing eachother, etc. juxtaposed with Jay being praised at a large concert (where he feels most young).
it looks very good, and it’s such a great song. what do you think??
peace, and forever young love.
Wale talks about 4 (potential bp3) tracks Kanye flew in to play for Jay-Z before a show. he wanted a couple of them, specifically “A Star Is Born” for the intro to Attention Defecit (in stores now!! it’s pretty ill!!!)…i would have liked it better with Wale, don’t really like the Jay version HONESTLY.
Kanye producing “Let The Money Fall” for Wale, KiD CuDi, Drake…dope. could still come into fruition??
peace, and remember to smile, love.
this is a pretty rad video of the PS22 Chorus singing Jay-Z’s Run This Town
” We are Yeah I said it, we are We will be the leaders Look at us. We’re fearless Don’tcha wanna be us? P.S. We’re the chorus 22 is poppin’ Don’t believe that we are stoppin’ Cuz the music that we’re droppin’ You can see that we are rockin’ Out the stage and we ain’t frontin’ Lemme tell ya little something 22’s gon be runnin’ Running this town tonight”
Music (pop music…HIP HOP) reaching beyond the internet, beyond the clubs (as a simple dance music), beyond the ipods, beyond the school doors, into the classroom, to this choir’s curriculum. they do a good job too! i diggs it! very inspirational…
peace, and run this love.
