Lupe Fiasco Releases “Friend of the People” Mixtape For the Fans
Originally intending to release his new mixtape in December 2009 just in time for Christmas, rapper Lupe Fiasco decided that this year’s Thanksgiving was the perfect time to drop his new 12-track Friend of the People for both his fans and music enthusiasts alike.
Backed by beats and production from a who’s who of electronic DJs and producers like Nero, Skrillex, Soundtrakk, Justice, Bassnectar, Ellie Goulding, and more, Lupe created the backdrop for a project that is pretty much unlike anything his fans have heard in the before. Don’t fret though, the seemingly genius lyricist is uber present on the electronic-infused Friend of the People.
Friend of the People is meant to serve as both a thank-you to the fans, as well as something to hold them over until the release of his fourth studio album, Food and Liquor II: The Great American Rap Album, which is slated for release in 2012.
