Lupe Fiasco – ‘Pound of Flesh/Paris Tokyo 2′
Just last night, the Chicago rapper dropped a new track, ‘Pound of Flesh/Paris Tokyo 2,’ and it quickly began making the rounds on the web. As you might have gained from its title, the song features Fiasco rapping over the instrumental from the moody first half of Drake‘s ‘Pound Cake/Paris Morton Music 2.’
In addition to spitting some bravado, he takes the time to shout out some of his fellow Windy City rap artists. They include Chance The Rapper, Common, former Twitter nemesis Chief Keef, and way-too-young-to-rapping-about-the-things-he-raps-about Lil Mouse. The message of peace and love is refreshing and endearing, though using ‘Paris Tokyo 2′ in the title was pretty misleading. This new cut has nothing to do with the original ‘Paris Tokyo’ heard on Fiasco’s sophomore album, ‘The Cool.’
