“Meet me on the corner, I’ll be waitin’ on ya, 1000 years or better, writin’ to forever, fire on my feathers, far from outta Heaven, fight without a weapon, life without a lesson, lost…(In).”
Lupe Fiasco has released a uexpected 6 track project called Pharaoh Height 2/30. Not only is Lupe providing us with great quality music, he’s also educating his listeners through each track.
Throughout Pharaoh Height 2/30, Lupe speaks on various topics & issues as a storyteller with a spoken-word type vibe as he freestyle – mostly on live instruments as the beat. Oh but don’t get it twisted, it still has that true Hip Hop feeling to it as well. Lupe managed to open the minds of his listeners as well as brought awareness to certain situations that may have gotten overlooked in the past & present.
Pharaoh Height 2/30 is definitely worth an entire listen more than once to fully take in the words of Lupe Fiasco.
Lupe raps, “I was brought here a slave…but I’m leaving a Pharaoh…”
