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.

Quite an interesting one from Lupe, who apparently wanted to get the dust off and let this go. There’s some excellent work from him in here too, alongside the typically-esoteric and leftfield sections that the longtime fans are now rather used to, not least his Benjamin Button-esque opening. The first verse is my favourite of the bunch here, with a couple of incredibly smart lines (I’m two-tiered, but no tats, and I don’t know what you call that, goes on and on like two mirrors), whilst his flow is very versatile throughout; the verses seem to be delivered in short, explosive bursts, whilst the opening and hooks are much slower. The intense electronic production adds a ton of gravitas to this one too, with the bassy and jagged backdrop being a powerful, brash accompaniment to Lupe’s smart, thought-out lyricism. One of those tracks you’ll replay several times to catch everything he says, and that’s always a good thing.
