Two years isn’t a long wait, right? LUPE FIASCO’s new mixtape effort Friend Of The People was announced back in 2009 and was shelved due to “being busy” but after his studio effort Lasers lacked Chi-town hip hop, it’s no surprise the release is out. Shocker alert: it has more samples than a Baskin Robbins. A solid step up from his last label drop, the mixtape touches on beats crafted by the likes of Justice, M83, Ellie Goulding, Skrillex and Sebastian. One track could fit its description (“WWJD He’d Prolly LOL Like WTF!!!) but in all honesty, it’s a slick night terror.
