Lupe Fiasco takes the spotlight on the tracklisting for his fourth album Food & Liquor II: The Great American Rap Album Pt. 1. Due September 25, the follow-up to his 2006 LP features 17 tracks, with appearances from Bilal, Casey Benjamin, Poo Bear, Jason Evigian, and Guy Sebastian on “Battle Scars,” for which he recently released a video.
The Chi-town MC made the controversial record without any outside pressure. “It’s the Lupe Fiasco that I want to be without the industry constraints, without trying to please the hardcore fans or the new fans,” he told Fuse. “It’s just me, what I would do for myself, if nobody ever heard it. This is the kind of music that I would make. It’s a masterpiece. It’s real good. It’s real fu**ing good.”
