UPDATE: The Cool’s holy trinity unite! The perfect way to say it, via Nikki Jean herself, as she provides the hook for Lupe’s new set of thought-provoking rhymes that reflect on history and the world. Rounding it out is Soundtrakk with the production for the 2 of 2 gems on Lost In The Atlantic.
10.23: In case you were sleeping last night (literally), Lupe Fiasco tweeted out the new single art for “Haile Selassie”, which he says will drop tomorrow (Friday) and will feature a singer that fans have been clamoring for more for since The Cool — Nikki Jean. Lu & Nikki are also set to reunite over the work of a familiar production partner in Soundtrakk. Me presumes that this is a part of the Lost In The Atlantic project, and not the Tetsuo & Youth album dropping January 20th.
Get a head start on the song’s meaning by researching who and what Haile Selassie is.
Also, ICYMI: “Lilies”
Aaaand because it’s #TBT:
