Less than 24 hours after releasing the audio, here’s the visual component to Wale’s track off Maybach Music Group’s Self Made 3. Make the right decision and cop the album August 6th.
Over “Ingenue” by Atoms For Peace, Lupe Fiasco surprised his fans last night with some new music. Who’s the Black Sheep, now?
Lupe was at it today. The rapper fired up his off-and-on Twitter account to address the violent lyrics in today’s music.
Violent music (and all violent media) effectively says its “ok” to be violent. It provides positive reinforcement for negative actions. If you rap and make violent music then own up to it. Stop hiding behind “art imitating life” as a way to evade the guilt. “How the hell you gonna tell this man not 2 be violent?, Cuz he dont need to go the same route that I did” -Eminem & Dr. Dre “Choices”. Sorry…”Bad Meets Evil”…”Guilty Conscious”…sorry…lol correct title of the song aside, U know what I meant! The issue stands that violent music puts violence into this world one way or another.
We live in such a cruel world. Lupe sends his condolences to the family and friends of 6-month old Jonylah Watkins, who died this week in a shooting in Chicago. Says Lupe:
She lives as long as we do. She will live forever. God bless your soul and the family you left behind. We Love You.
Not a song but a life. Be respectful. Please keep negative comments to yourself.
“When I first checked in I was 160 [pounds] and my score was something like 760. I checked in today, and I was 155, but even though I lost 5 pounds I wasn’t active in my social activity enough and my blood pressure was a little high… It shows you how weight and wellness aren’t the same thing. You can be super fit and super depressed because you’re not interacting with your social network. You could work out and work out, but that doesn’t really translate to how happy you are in life. You could be at home super happy, super comfortable, just logging in to your computer all day, but your body is paying for it.”
Lupe randomly returned to his Twitter account and dropped a track for his fans.
To be featured Tetsuo & Youth coming soon.
DONT MIND ME….JUST STAYING IN SHAPE…JUST PRACTICE…LIKE A PIANO PLAYER OR A GYMNAST. Not on T&Y…So pls dont Say It Is on your blog. Thanx.
