Lupe Fiasco freestyles over Artifacts’ ‘Wrong Side of da Tracks’ | New Music

With his highly anticipated fourth studio album, Food & Liquor 2: The Great American Rap Album Pt. 1, exactly two months away from release, Lupe Fiasco is now easing into his busy press schedule. A priority for any rapper is Funkmaster Flex‘s show on Hot 97, and that’s exactly where the Chi-Town emcee stopped by yesterday for the customary interview and freestyle.

In the first audio clip below, you can hear Lupe spit some supremely smooth bars over Artifacts‘ classic joint “Wrong Side of da Tracks” before discussing his forthcoming LP, his dispute with Pete Rock over the “T.R.O.Y.” sample on his “Around My Way (Freedom Ain’t Free)”, blogging and much more in the two-part interview after the jump.
