lupe fiasco around my way freedom aint free Check Out: Lupe Fiasco   Around My Way (Freedom Aint Free)

Following last year’s Lasers, Lupe Fiasco is finally ready to release the long-in-the works, much-hyped double LP Food & Liquor II: The Great American Rap Album. The album’s first single, ”Around My Way (Freedom Ain’t Free)”, is streaming below.

Update: Lupe’s single samples Pete Rock and C.L. Smooth’s 1992 hit “They Reminisce Over You (T.R.O.Y.)”. However, Peter Rock isn’t much of a fan. He wrote on Twitter:

“No disrespect to lupe fiasco and i like him alot but TROY should be left alone. Feel so violated,the beat is next to my heart and was made… Outta anguish and pain. When it’s like that it should not be touched by no one!” he wrote. “It’s so hard for folks to make original music, I possess that, but these dudes are scared of that and this is supposed to be HIP HOP?”

I feel what PR is saying, but couldn’t be argued that in the History of Hip Hop a lot of music has been sampled that is close the the musicians heart? If you don’t want someone to sample your song that is fine, just say that, But don’t ask whether or not it is hip hop.  To me it is practically the definition of the genre.
