"Let 'em Know, I'm Super Cold"

While you were with friends and family stuffing your faces last week, there's a good chance you may have missed the release of @LupeFiasco's new mixtape Friend of the People: I Fight Evil. I already posted his single worthy track Lightwork a couple weeks ago and like the tip of an X-acto knife, Super Cold is just as on point. The combination of running sythns and haunting background humming is downright chilling, but it sticks with you. I don't think it would be going too far to say Lightwork and Super Cold would have been in my top 3 favorite tracks if they had made the cut for Lasers.

I'm posting the remix below instead of the original, but I wanted to give a shout out to @iamraak who was behind the boards on the track below. Between he and the presence of @gilbereforte, they take this track to another level on the remix. I'd be remiss to not give shout outs to @abliva and @_ASAAD who stepped up their game on their respective verses. No official word on when Food and Liquor II may surface, but for the time being I'm cool with all these mixtapes folks like @bobatl, @mikeposner and Lupe are dropping. They're really setting the bar high on the mixtape circuit and making it damn near impossible for their upcoming studio albums to top the quality of their latest mixtape releases.

Whole lot of recommended hash tags for this one including, but not limited to #PHILLYREMIX and #FOTP. Feel free and visit Raak's bandcamp page too if you want the real consumer experience. Big year in store for Gilbere and Raak, heads up 2012...#NewYearsPrediction
