Lupe Fiasco is taking fans to Babylon with his take on SZA’s single.
Over the DJ Dahi-produced banger, entitled “Bone,” the Chicago rapper rhymes about a woman who’s “feeling herself” and “killing herself” from the perspective of an “emotional” suitor who’s “too intimidated” and overcompensating.
Lupe actually previewed the track over a year ago. “Those same beat struggles…hahaha,” he said at the time.
This year, Lupe plans to release three albums—Drogas, Skulls, and Roy.
SZA’s “Babylon,” which features her TDE labelmate Kendrick Lamar, appeared on her 2014 album Z.
