"I See Diamond Flooded Demons, Lamborghini Angels"

Saying @LupeFiasco is a lightning rod for political controversy is like saying Kenny Britt might be risk to draft in fantasy football this year. If you're not aware of his situation and don't play fantasy football then I'll follow it up with a Hip Hop analogy. Lupe Fiasco makes likes making socially and politically risque songs as much as 2 Chainz likes to say his name. You get my point?

The thing is, with every habitual linestepper, the stakes need to continue to be raised every time they get closer to the line. If this isn't the closest Lupe has come to that proverbial line, then I'm not sure where the line is. In an effort to save you some time, below might be the most inflammatory excerpt from his new single Lamborghini Angels, off his upcoming album Food & Liquor II.
With his crucifix inside his pocket said his mission is divine
Put his Bible on the bed and then he touched on his behind
Told him take off all his clothes and put your penis next to mine
Now the little boy think it's normal because they do this all the time
With no life inside his body now he finally think he’s safe
But they cut off all his fingers while they piss all in his face
He take pictures with his killers then they sneak back to the states
Now he sit next to the picture of his wife when she was raped
With the teleprompter rolling he looks right into the lens
Doesn’t mention his redemption but absolves him of his sins
He forgives them in advance says that he will do again
Yea, Lupe definitely didn't hold back the graphic details when formally attacking organized religion. One thing to note is the way he goes about his forceful lyrical protests. He isn't derogatory or profane, but he doesn't parse words when getting down to what he needs to say.

Lyrical message aside, I feel like the track deserves recognition for being well written and the beat put together @Mr_inkredible will make you take the track seriously as a single. I can't see any radio stations playing the real version, but I don't doubt the message will still get across somehow because he chose to release it as a single. With Food and Liquor II starting to take shape, I've got hope that it will live up to the hype of being The Great American Rap Album...#LamborghiniAngels
