A nice progressive step for Lupe
Fiasco – a rhymer who was ready to carve out his own distinctive niche from the beginning his career, and it's never been more unique than it is on Tetsuo & Youth – with diverse, though always soulfully resonant production by S1, Wiz Buchanan, DJ Dahi, Lupe
himself, and others. It's almost damning to note an artist's maturation from a young hopeful to seasoned veteran, as "maturing" is too often mistaken for "getting old" – so we're running a risk by saying it, but Lupe
Fiasco's style has indeed matured, but in an exciting, inspiring way. This is a guy who can start a track with a string section or even a banjo sample and still ring true as city-reared, straight up hip hop. This is a record we'll keep coming back to for a long time to come! Includes "Summer", "Mural", Blur My Hands" with Guy Sebastian, "Fall", "Prisoner 1 & 2" with Ayesha Jaco, "Little Death" and "No Scratches" with Nikki Jean, "Deliver", "Adoration Of The Magi" with Crystal Torres, "Spiring", "They. Resurrect. Over. New." with Ab-Soul & Troi and more.
