Lupe Fiasco is back in action in the preview clip for “Words I Never Said” featuring Skylar Grey, the second single off his recent release Lasers. In the Sanaa Hamri-directed video, the Chi-town rapper goes behind bars and dukes it out with his fellow inmates while rapping about social ills, standing before a panel of international ambassadors as he speaks his mind.
“It was more so me being this liberator, undercover agent who was sneaking into this prison to kinda rescue one of my comrades from the clutches of the evil people,” he told Rap-Up TV of the visuals. “There’s fight scenes and a whole lotta action. It’s very aggressive, but at the end I get the girl, so that’s all that counts.”
Get a sneak peek before the controversial video debuts tomorrow on MTV.
