Lupe Fiasco - Around My Way

This is the new video for Lupe Fiasco’s latest track Around My Way. There was a little controversy when this track first surfaced as it samples Pete Rock and C L Smooth’s iconic T.R.O.Y. (They Reminisce Over You) But phone calls where made and it looks like everyone has kissed and made up.

Either way this is a pretty sick track. I can’t wait to hear what else Lupe has been working  on when the new album Food & Liquor 2: The Great American Rap Album Pt.2 Drops on September 25th.

Lupe Fiasco - Around My Way (Freedom Ain’t Free)

The first single taken from the upcoming Food & Liquor 2: The Great American Rap Album.

There was some controversy earlier this week when this tune first surfaced. The record samples the Pete Rock & CL Smooth classic They Reminisce Over You (T.R.O.Y)

Pete Rock took to twitter and said he was disappointed that Lupe had chosen to use the sample as he felt such a personal attachment to the record. When asked about this in a radio interview Lupe claimed to be surprised at this reaction and went on to say that Pete Rocks camp had given their blessing over the use.

It now looks like everyone has kissed and made up and Pete rock has released the following statement

“There is no Pete Rock vs. Lupe Fiasco and there never was. Lupe called me last night for the first time about the remake of my song and we worked out our differences. With that, we can do business together and focus on what we both love to do, which is make great music.”

Either way is a great summer tune and has me hyped for the album which as yet has no release date.
