New Music: Lupe Fiasco f/ Ty Dolla $ign – ‘$nitches’

Snitches

Lupe Fiasco offers a taste of his upcoming album Tetsuo & Youth with “$nitches,” his collaboration with Ty Dolla $ign.

The Chicago MC puts the gold diggers and groupies on notice (“Keep an open mind, but I ain’t messin’ with the doorstops”) on the radio-friendly record, which samples OutKast’s “Rosa Parks.”

Ty, who also produced the track, lays down the smooth hook. “I ain’t trickin’ on you,” he sings over the snapping beat.

Listen to DROGA$ meet DOLLA $IGN.

UPDATE: For those who prefer a harder Lupe, he has released “$nitches 2 (30′s)” for the streets.

    @Shutterbug, chill out dude.
    just because someone raps about socially conscious topics, doesn’t mean they can’t do a fun radio record once in awhile.
    not all music has to be about some serious social issue.

    @XO till we overdose…, normally I would agree, but I think Lupe built this on his own. Go check out “Dumb It Down”from The Cool. Or even “Gotta Eat”, lol. He’s built his career on being the ultimate conscious rapper, and he’s a bit pretentious about it at times. To hear something like this from him screams Sell-Out, and I’m a huge Lupe fan.

    I like it. I don’t think Lupe’s selling out with this, I think he’s just having fun.

    I’ve noticed that he’s been imitating modern rap styles lately as a way of mocking these mainstream rappers. He does the same thing here. Honestly I think Lupe is trolling just to fuck around. For the people who say he’s too political or not mainstream enough, he’s showing them that what these other rappers are doing isn’t hard and doesn’t require any effort on his part.
