Lupe Fiasco (feat. Jake Torrey) – Wild Child

Lupe Fiasco’s 2006 debut single Kick, Push (based on a sample of Celeste Legaspi’s Bolero Medley) was quite a way to start his career. It’s a beautiful description of a love affair between a male and a female skateboarder. Ten years later, his career seemed to come to an end.

In December last year, Lupe made clear he was about to retire from rap and cancelled the album trilogy he had earlier announced: Drogas light, Drogas and Skulls. This was not the first time he retired, by the way. Early in 2015, after fulfilling his recording obligations, het tweeted ‘Now that my contract is over and I have other things that I’d rather be doing I get to make the decision to go back to the shadows’.

But apparently Lupe Fiasco made up his mind (again) and he just dropped a new single, Wild Child (featuring Jake Torrey). This funky affair is the follow-up to last year’s singles Pick Up The Phone and Made In The USA, all of which are now planned to appear on his Drogas light album, to be released on 10 February. The album will feature collabs with the likes of Ty Dolla $ign and Rick Ross.
