Still shining bright from last March’s Lasers, Lupe Fiasco is now readying the release of his next mixtape, the long-delayed Friend of the People, due to drop this Thanksgiving. Our first taste of the hip-hop bounty comes in the form of “LightWork”, which sees Fiasco throw his verses on top of Bassnectar’s remix of Ellie Goulding’s “Lights”. The end result is a club-friendly beat with Fiasco’s rhymes moving away from some of the emotional content of Lasers and back to more displays of just how cutting his wit truly is. Check it out below (via HipHop-N-More).
Stay tuned for more on Friend of the People as it’s announced.
