While he does reside in the present, Lupe Fiasco has made it clear that he is mostly unhappy with the status of rap in the 21st Century. Continuously he has been looking back to what he thinks are the finer days of rap and hoping that he can help resurrect that sound. Not only is he hoping to get old school music back but Lupe is looking to get some “Old School Love” as well.
The first single from Fiasco’s upcoming album Tetsuo and Youth, “Old School Love” is the style of track which has garnered Lupe with the most chart success. Instead of blasting politicians or culture, Lupe slows is down and reminisces about the good old days while Ed Sheeran calmly handles the chorus. This genre combination should expand Fiasco’s audience and have “Old School Love” climbing up the charts.
Listen to “Old School Love” below.
