Lupe Fiasco – ‘Peace of Paper Cup of Jayzus’
Back in August, Lupe Fiasco teased a new release called ‘Peace of Paper/Cup of Jayzus‘ with a set of lyrics that some thought was a teaser of his next project. Well, it turns out it’s actually a standalone single that features the Chicago rapper going off for the better part of seven minutes.
Backed by a minimalist instrumental of pianos and drums, Fiasco spends his time dishing out autobiographical rhymes, dense wordplay, and a way-too-long series of bars about Odd Future and Earl Sweatshirt. Although, the raps about Sweatshirt could be related a tweet from the OFWGKTA member back in September 2012 during Fiasco and young Chicago rapper Chief Keef‘s short-lived beef.

‘Peace of Paper/Cup of Jayzus’ also includes references to Rick Ross and his fondness for Wingstop, the Notorious B.I.G. and Shyne (“Knockin’ off bigs and stealin’ shines”), and a greatest rapper of all time. As for that final tidbit, Fiasco admits that he’s not the greatest rapper because, well, “the greatest rapper a lie.”
