Lupe himself confirmed this as a track from his new album Lasers but says it is unfinished, which brings him to the modern crossroads: when your track leaks, do you forge ahead as planned or do you pay attention to fans' reactions and make changes to give them some surprising new final version? We always thought that leaking demos was actually a really smart way of warding off album snipers and rewarding those who wait, and since Lupe is attuned to internet and its whims, we have a feeling this already slow burner will probably end up being on repeat for spring/summer. And yes, that is a photo of Lupe and Howard Zinn. Did we miss something?
