Lupe Fiasco - Around My Way (Freedom Ain't Free)

Lupe Fiasco's new track Around My Way (Freedom Ain't Free) speaks volumes of Lupe's vision of the world. Lately, Lupe has seen a corrupt government and elitist culture hold down the common man, so he feels compelled to tell his fans.

Lupe writes music about the decline in society and the inability to have progressive thought and it's true just look at #swagglife. Lupe Fiasco has shown a more political approach to his music, and he does a quality job in not over doing it by simply bringing up current events and factual reasoning in his rhymes.

It's tough to really believe in hip hop music sometimes because most artist are well off in their bank accounts we can see this because of the nice clothes, fast cars, and first class travel arrangements so Lupe brings to light that there is another world. We can listen to Lupe Fiasco's music and find a more common ground about mainstream music/society.
