Lupe Fiasco - Pick Up the Phone (Official Music Video)
A cautionary tale on how in today's age, we have so many forms of communication yet we're more disconnected than ever. This music video illustrates this idea very nicely with the way the story progresses whilst Lupe spits amble bars, seamlessly weaving in wordplay about rings, guns, and phones. That's just the first verse, by the way. This is the supposed first single from Lupe Fiasco's upcoming sixth album, DROGAS Light, due later this year. Expectations are high coming from 2015's magnificent Tetsuo & Youth, and the highly slept on Pharaoh Height 2/30 mixtape which was released in the summer of that same year. So with DROGAS Light and more albums Lupe has promised to deliver for this year, it looks to be an interesting last few months of 2016 for the Chicago MC.
If you're in the New York City area in October, Lupe Fiasco returns to B.B. King Blues Club and Grill for a concert after an incredible one back in February. The gig is on Tuesday, October 18th and tickets go on sale on Wednesday, August 31st.
