As is often the case with Lupe Fiasco, I had to do a bit of research before checking this song out. “Haile Selassie” is the 2nd track dropping as a result of
a brilliant marketing scheme Lupe’s drama with Atlantic Records.
Off jump, this is one of the best songs I’ve heard from Lupe in a long while. Societal issue charged tracks have never been the true issue with Lupe, it’s the fact that the quality of the song seemed to take a backseat to the message. This time around see’s a…um..trinity come together. Ill rhymes, great production from Soundtrakk, and lovely crooning from Nikki Jean. Lost in the Atlantic is shaping up to be pretty dope regardless of Tetsuo & Youth. Share your thoughts down in the comments.
