Lupe Fiasco Flexes His Storytelling Skills on 'Jump' Featuring Gizzle: Listen
In support of his new album Drogas Light, Lupe Fiasco debuted the project's second single "Jump" featuring Gizzle on Zane Lowe's Beats 1 radio show Tuesday (Jan. 10).
On "Jump", Fiasco flexes his lyrical storytelling. With his longtime producer Soundtrakk (who produced "Kick Push" and "Sunshine") on the beat, Fiasco narrates a street tale on the bass-heavy track. "Move a thousand miles per hour down the street of my slum/ And who do I meet, to the beat of my drum/ It was little Susie Uzi, she sold crack and was a killer/ All bitch dope tip, wasn't trappin' with no n---as," he spits.
The track is a complete contrast from his first offering "Wild Child," on which Fiasco aims for a more radio-friendly vibe with singer Jake Torrey crooning on the hook.
After considering retirement last month, Fiasco is in full promo mode as he readies the release of his forthcoming set. The 14-track project will feature Rick Ross, Big K.R.I.T. and Ty Dolla $ign among others. Fans can expect the album in full when it drops Feb. 10.
