New Music: Lupe Fiasco – “Paris Tokyo 2” (Pound Cake Freestyle)

8 years ago view-show 672,210

Lupe is making the most of the rap’s publicity wars by dismantling popular beats and inserting himself into the conversation with symbolic lyrics about how weak the game is. It’s a good strategy: not too confrontational to be overblown but sly and referential enough to thrill those who get it. Be one of those. (Hilarious that he keeps naming these songs sequels to his earlier work when they have nothing to do with that at all.)


  1. I think you are all misunderstanding what he’s trying to do here. He’s saying that you have to sacrifice a lot to be successful.

  2. Yes, he’s actually saying you can’t have a relationship and be always looking for time when you are trying to make it big.

  3. I think Lupe Fiasco is just piggybacking on the amount of press that Pound Cake and Nothing was the same has been getting of late.
