Following the release of Drake’s Nothing Was the Same, Chitown’s own Lupe Fiasco jumps on the ‘Pound Cake/Paris Morton Music 2’ beat for a new freestyle.
Renamed ‘Pound of Flesh (Paris Tokyo 2)’ has Lupe dropping straight battle rap bars for 2-and-a-half minutes.
He definitely has been on some other stuff lately and it reflects in his music. Taking to the Drake beat, Lupe Fiasco flexes his lyrical muscles and shows his strength on the mic.
Although his flow is aggressive, he still calls out some other Chicago emcees that he has expressed concern for in the past.
Not really what this has to do with the rap ballad Paris, Tokyo, but take a listen and decide for yourself.
