Lupe Fiasco’s Latest Video Looks At The Country’s Exports, For Better & Way Worse
In a week where the nation appears as divided as its been in ages, Lupee Fiasco releases a different kind of patriotism in “Made In The U.S.A.” The Drogas Light single looks at the good and bad exports of the United States.
“My Glock came from Smyrna, Georgia (bang, bang, bang) / My AR-15 from California (bang, bang, bang, bang, bang, bang, bang) / My cocaine come from Arizona (yeah, yeah, move it, dope) / My Detroit whip run quick like Forrest, but it’s, made in the U.S.A.,” begins Lu’ in the song assisted by Bianca Sings. At a time when some abhorrently use their nation as a birthright, Fiasco shows what American-made really means when one looks at world through a 2017 lens. The black-and-white video uses footage to show some of the images Lu’ spits about in his song.
