Lupe Fiasco’s creative taps seemingly never run dry. This week, the 1st & 15th founder released “Something That I Never Had.” The moment finds Lu’ really waxing a fast, deeply syncopated flow as he tells a tale of relationships drifting. It’s a lot to keep up with, but the moment is held together with a captivating chorus, something Fiasco’s ear is especially strong with.


As Lupe either seems to take three year gaps between albums, or release them very quickly, do you feel that Tetsuo & Youth may have more material gaining fast?
