Lupe Fiasco

 

The Around My Way (Freedom Ain’t Free) Songfacts reports that Fiasco’s first single off his fourth studio album, Lupe Fiasco’s Food & Liquor II: The Great American Rap Album Pt. 1 debuted on May 21, 2012. On “Around My Way (Freedom Ain’t Free),” he spits rhymes about aspects of modern American life he doesn’t like such as “Suicide bombers and prosperity gospels, emaciated models, with cocaine and blood pouring out their nostrils” as well as socio-political problems in Ghana and the invasion of Iraq.

Lupe has previously been on label Epic with his group Da Pak and then signed a solo deal with Arista. His years at Arista only led to the 2003 promo single “Pop Pop” as well as guest appearances on singles from Tha’ Rayne (2002’s “Kiss Me” and 2003’s “Didn’t You Know”) and K Fox (2003’s “This Life”), then Arista folded in 2004 and Lupe was signed to Atlantic Records.
