NEW MUSIC: Lupe Fiasco | Around My Way Freedom Ain’t Free

The first single from Lupe Fiasco’s Food & Liquor II dropped, titled Around My Way (Freedom Ain’t Free). It samples Pete Rock & CL Smooth’s “They Reminisce Over You (T.R.O.Y.).” The original song is widely considered to be one of the greatest Hip Hop songs of all time, and now Lupe’s version has been received with some off-putting public opinion. How do you rate this record in comparison to the original Hip Hop classic?

Throwback Thursday

Pete Rock & CL Smooth - ‘They Reminisce Over You’ (T.R.O.Y)

Bringing you todays throwback from Pete Rock & CL SMooth. Who remembers this one from the NBA Street? Big track back from the early 90’s. It was inspired by the death of a close friend of theirs Troy Dixen aka “Trouble” T. 

One of Hip Hop’s best. They don’t make them like this anymore. Enjoy.
