Lupe Fiasco is in full promo mode as he preps the release of his independent album DROGAS Light. He recently dropped the radio-friendly single, “Wild Child” featuring Jake Torrey. On Monday (Jan. 9), the Chicago native delivered a more rap-centric banger called “Jump” featuring Gizzle.

The song premiered on Zane Lowe’s Beats 1 radio program. Produced by Soundtrakk, the track boasts a bass-heavy beat and features Lupe and Gizzle detailing their stories of meeting unusual people.

For Lupe, he raps an allegory tale of meeting a drug dealer named Suzi Uzi wants him to ghostwrite some rhymes for her. “With a blunt between her lips, she said, ‘Now here’s my proposition’ / You just write a bunch of raps for me and I’ma go and spit ’em / Then we take ’em to the radio, the DJ better spin ’em / Then we take ’em to the record store and sell a couple million,” he raps.

It appears the “Superstar” rapper is embracing his new independence. Before releasing his new single, Lupe tweeted, “Treat every song like a start up.”

Lupe Fiasco’s DROGAS Light is set to hit stores on Feb. 10 via Fiasco’s own indie label 1st & 15th/Thirty Tigers. The 14-song collection boasts guest appearances that include Ty Dolla $ign, Rick Ross, Big K.R.I.T, Gizzle and others.
