Lupe Fiasco releases first track from upcoming album, “Around My Way”
Soundset 2012 artist Lupe Fiasco has been preparing the follow-up to 2006’s Food & Liquor for some time now, and this morning he unleashed the first track from the album! Food & Liquor II: The Great American Rap Album is set to hit stores in mid-2012. You can buy the track here. Since his 2006 skateboarding anthem “Kick, Push” that took the world by storm, Lupe has been rolling his way through the Hip Hop mainstream!
Fiasco has been riding high from the success of his most recent release Lasers just last year. The album made serious noise worldwide and debuted at Number 1 on the US Billboard charts in it’s first week as well as peaking on the Canadian, European, and Australian sales charts. Needless to say, it was a welcome follow-up for rabid fans since 2007’s The Cool. With a four-year hiatus from releasing albums, he took part in philanthropic work and many collaborative projects like a record label, a fashion company, a shoe design with Reebok, and more! In 2010, he released a song to support the Haitian Earthquake Recovery efforts as part of the Music For Relief compilation.
