UPDATE: Lupe Fiasco - Food & Liquor II

Chicago MC, Lupe Fiasco recently announced the sequel to what is arguably his best album. Food & Liquor II: The Great American Rap Album Pt. 1, is set to drop on September 25th. Two days ago, Lupe released his first single from the upcoming album called "Around My Way" which features the Pete Rock and C. L. Smooth instrumental for T.R.O.Y.. Due to the iconic status of this hip hop track there has been a lot of buzz floating around in regards to whether or not the beat should be touched or sampled. Lupe's rebuttal is ,"All the credit goes to my partner and manager Chill, he just felt like it was time to bring back a joint, go back and take one of the iconic records of Hip Hop and put a new spin on it and put it back out there." With this being said I am just glad that it is being redone by one of the best lyricists in hip hop. Better him before it is belittled by some clown dubstep DJ or or pop group.
