Lupe Fiasco Releases “Friend of the People” Mixtape For the Fans

(AllHipHop News) Originally intending to release his new mixtape in December 2009 just in time for Christmas, rapper Lupe Fiasco decided that this year’s Thanksgiving was the perfect time to drop his new 12-track Friend of the People for both his fans and music enthusiasts alike.

Backed by beats and production from a who’s who of electronic DJs and producers like Nero, Skrillex, Soundtrakk, Justice, Bassnectar, Ellie Goulding, and more, Lupe created the backdrop for a project that is pretty much unlike anything his fans have heard in the before. Don’t fret though, the seemingly genius lyricist is uber present on the electronic-infused Friend of the People.

Friend of the People is meant to serve as both a thank-you to the fans, as well as something to hold them over until the release of his fourth studio album, Food and Liquor II: The Great American Rap Album, which is slated for release in 2012.

        Lasers was dope to me. It was out of the box, but still lyrical. He branched out a tad. I understand the madness of “Lasers” clearly, as he market to both black & white cultures. His Mix CD is pretty much the same. He’s a new path with this one. Truly, you have to hear it for yourself to decide. These are just my opinions. Peace.

      He knows the enemy. Why ruffle feathers. Let the enemy believe he has an advantage. All that other shit you talking about is really irrelevant. I’m pretty sure you don’t know who is down with the boogie man. You are a speculator just like everyone else, saying the same shit the sheep are saying.

    When it comes to Illuminati; people always wanna uncover somebody’s dirt, that’s negative, and people need to change that about themselves. We know who a lot of the families are anyway and they have billions and they control and/or own the news channels and everything else, if you put 2 and 2 together you’ll realize easily that that is why they aren’t gettin’ any negative publicly. What else?.. Most people don’t realize that one of there objectives is to achieve high levels of negativity…Why do you think Gangster Rap blew up and the dust from it never settled? Because…It’s negative, when the billionaires saw how negative and profitable it was, they hopped on it and took advantage, they didn’t let it die off, they kept it on tv and the radio, therefore people couldn’t escape it so they gave in to it and that’s why it’s still alive today. People are easy to influence, All you have to do is put something on tv as an advertisement, as long as the commercial doesn’t say, “We have evil intentions to distract you from becoming enlightened (gaining a high level of knowledge/seeing what others don’t) then they pretty much know that you’re not going to talk about it because it’s not popularized like other things especially when most people have to watch tv just to learn what’s popular (remember, they control tv). 

    If something is not a plus for you or somebody and/or something else and it takes away from you or them in anyway (Mentally, Physically, And/Or Emotionally) it’s negative. So Change your lives, be positive. It might not happen overnight but if you start teaching yourselves today, I guarantee by tomorrow, the world will be already better.

    Would you rather listen to somebody that tells me that nobody wants to hear what I’m saying? Or would you rather take my advice and Wise-Up and change for the better? It’s up to you.

    I haven’t got started yet. I wasn’t always like this but I’ve been talking to God and He/She told me to do what I’m doing to help those that don’t understand because they haven’t opened their minds even though they think their mind is open when in all actuality it’s not, they just think it is because they’ve failed to realize that their mind isn’t open yet. That’s Deep…
