Lupe Fiasco, Melanie Fiona, Kardinal Offishall

Lupe Fiasco is back with “Around My Way (Freedom Ain’t Free)”, the first single off his upcoming album Food & Liquor 2: The Great American Rap Album. The “T.R.O.Y.”-sampling (well, really, Tom Scott’s “Today”-sampling) track serves as a good sign that with F&L 2: TGARA around the corner, we can all forget that Lasers ever happened. Yes, there was Friend of the People too, but it still wasn’t enough to get “Out Of My Head”, well, out of my head. Enough ranting for now though, check out “Around My Way” below and celebrate the fact that once again, Lupe is making great music. You can cop the track here.
