This week’s “Week that Was” featuring up and coming rappers and bands with a lot of buzz. Away from our lives for quite a while, WTW is back and geared to make you smile! Oh boy, I haven’t posted in a while. Corny rhymes will stop right there. Enjoy and let us know what you think!
Lupe took to twitter to release “Light Blue,” a track made just for practice, like a gymnast or piano player would do, said Fiasco. Forget about all the controversy surrounding the Chicago MC and we see he’s a damn good rapper. Stream and download the track below.
Lupe Fiasco finally broke his twitter hiatus… “The #LF twitter is currently deleting all past tweets. pls disregard any retweets etc. This account is currently closed will return in 2013,” Lu’s account posted. He followed by releasing a freebie for fans, complete with a dope Common intro over his old school record “Communism.” Check out the track below, and download if you like it.
