New Music: Consequence & Lupe Fiasco – ‘Countdown’

Chi-town stand up. Lupe Fiasco and Consequence come together on a new collaboration called “Countdown.” Over the soulful production, courtesy of Consequence and Mike Cash, the Chicago MCs deliver some blissful bars, while Chris Turner provides the smooth hook.

The collaboration came together when Cons was in the studio working on Kanye West’s upcoming album Swish.

“I think in 2015 my energy is different and the energy of lyricism is starting to spark back up,” he told WatchLOUD. “So while I was in the studio cooking with ‘Ye, I had a little bit of off time [so] I met up with Lu and it took us about a month to get it done. It’s crazy.”

On June 8, Lupe will kick off his month-long “Tetsuo & Youth” tour in San Francisco.

Hear them count it off.
