"If Talk is Cheap, Then My Silence is Diamonds"

Big breath of fresh air hearing a great, new track from Lupe. In my mind he has yet to half-step one bit when it comes to producing quality albums. His last one The Cool was great and the one before that, Food & Liquor was nothing short of classic. To this day, I can't help but leave Sunshine on every single time it comes around on my iPod.

It's pretty stupid that the record execs at Atlantic for @LUPEFIASCO have been holding his album hostage, enraging fans so much they attempted an extensive petition to get it released. So what if it leaked prematurely, it happens to every album these days, live with it, you might as well it's not going to make any money collecting dust on a shelf.

As for the song below, it's a really mellow, chilled out track where Lupe lulls all the haters and wannabe players to sleep lyrically. If you're more of a visual learner, check the live performance of the track thanks to LupE.N.D. blog...

This will probably end up being a single off his upcoming album Food & Liquor II since his album that was leaked and never was able to be released called Lasers may never be released from it's hostage. With buzz surrounding the All City Chess Club coming together to form a supergroup and more material leaking of late from Wasalu, it's a good time to be a Lupe fan.

Indulge in the artistry of his rhymes, it's long overdue, we missed you @LUPEFIASCO...
