Lupe Fiasco & Tinie Tempah

27 Oct

Trying to keep up that music diversity today, I have my 2nd Hip-Hop post ever! Lupe Fiasco is finally getting back on the map since his last release in 2007. Pitchfork describes the Chicago MC as having, “one of the slipperiest flows” to be heard today. With a unique sound compared to all the other not-so-good Hip-Hop out there, Lupe is destined for success coming out with his newest effort, Lasers, in March 2011. This week he released a song off the album, “The Show Goes On,” which samples the old hit, “Float on” by Modest Mouse, used as the base for melody throughout the song. Hopefully this is an accurate representation of how the rest of the album will be!

Lupe Fiasco- We Can Do It Now (Feat. Common & Jennifer Hudson)*Another new release, not sure if it’ll be on the album

Do you know the song, “Miami to Ibiza,” by Swedish House Mafia? If not, a rapper from South London named, Tinie Tempah, is featured in it. That song was where I first heard of this artist, and randomly I came across some of his own music. He reminds me of Bloc Party’s vocalist, Kele, in that they both have an English accent but definitely not vocal style. Tinie Tempah’s English accent adds something a bit different to rap for us in the United States who are not used to it. Nonetheless, it’s cool to hear some foreign rap and what’s not to like with Ellie Goulding singing the chorus?

Just because I have a lot of work to do, which you probably do as well! Special thanks to my friend, Melissa, bringin’ it back. Check out her blog!
