Lupe Fiasco Preps ‘Controversial’ Single

Lupe Fiasco

As Lupe Fiasco gets closer and closer to his Lasers album release, he’s chosen a second single that should get people talking.

The Chicago rapper stopped by Providence’s Hot 106, where he made the announcement. “The next single is a song called ‘Words I Never Said,’” he revealed of the follow-up to “The Show Goes On.” “It’s gonna be really big. It’s a big, controversial record.”

Lupe has worked with The Neptunes, Kane Beatz, Soundtrakk, and The Buchanans on the oft-delayed album. After a public dispute with his label Atlantic Records last year, the disc was finally given a release date of March 8.

UPDATE: The track was produced by “Love the Way You Lie” hitmaker Alex Da Kid.

    Ah, Lupe always suprises me! I can’t wait! The ‘Show Goes On’ was an ok track. I hope the next one is greater! I hope it’s the song where he says “Ima keep it cool and ima do me
    It is what it is and it’s how its goin’ to be
    Until I get there, until I get there
    And yea I could fall, I know i’m not perfect
    But all the ups and downs will soon be worth it
    When I get there, when I get there ” That would be awesome. I really want that song to leak already.

    Lupe? Controversial?

    This is going to be big. Anyones who’s a real fan knows “the show goes on” wasn’t great, but he did that just to keep the record label happy. I think lupe is definietly top 3 rappers alive. This single is gonna be like a mind grenade.

    Fnf Up.

    I agree 100% with Yonis’s comment. At least I hope it’s better than Show Goes On. Honestly, as a fan, I’m afraid of the entire album sounding like that.

    It’s going to be huge, and make people wake up and say what???? If you thought Lupe’s lyrics spoke the truth before, you haven’t heard nothing yet. If you think Lupe’s sucks, you’re probably too dumbed-down to understand what he’s saying in his lyrics. He’s super Lupe lyrical. Lupe = GOAT. For a preview of the song (without a beat) he gave a teaser at Drexel University a while back. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xGhQEN4GgD0&feature=player_embedded

    “A lot of figga’s… be playing the fool
    And I ain’t having that *hit like prayin’ in school
    I’m gonna keep more tool’s than true values
    That I know how to use I don’t need “how to’s”
    Figga’s don’t believe they can bleed or bruise
    That’s why solo Figgas always leave in two’s
    Weed and booze I’ll-have Figga’s leaking from wounds
    Ain’t no coming back home Mom’s leasing your room”
    “ACCEPT THE TROUBLES”. REAL HIPHOP IS KNOT PLAYED ON THE RADIO. STOP LISTENIN 2 RAPPERS/ACTORS!
