"These Battle Scars, Don't Look Like They're Fading"

With Lee Daniels' The Butler hitting theaters later this week, it's the perfect time to rewind the clock back to last August when Lupe Fiasco's Battle Scars dropped. The song plays a central role in trailer in the movie that is getting pretty solid early ratings on Rotten Tomatoes. Like the trailer to the movie, the video does a great job of visualizing the emotional vibe of the song...

The back and forth between Lupe and Guy Sebastian over the rolling piano beat is really well done. Lupe is second to none when it comes to writing and executing thoughtful, meaningful lyrics. The war torn psyche of a soldier isn't a pretty sight, but Lupe managed to storytell in a way that made it not so bad...#BattleScars
