“The butcher says to the bovines/ you’re all just pastrami when it’s showtime.” – Lupe Fiasco
Lupe Fiasco just dropped “Animal Pharm”, a subdued, synth-laden take on the George Orwell classic. The track finds Lupe rapping over Atoms for Peace’s “Ingenue”. No word on whether this is attached to Lu’s upcoming album Tetsuo & Youth or not. As for the upcoming LP, the album title is derived from the 1989 Japanese cyberpunk film Tetsuo: The Iron Man. With that in mind, “Animal Pharm” would definitely sound right at home with that style. Stream and download the track below.
