An interesting new track surfaces today in the form of Stereo Sun by Lupe Fiasco. The track was previewed by Lupe many moons ago but it never made his Lasers album, instead finding its way into the hands of Tinchy Stryder who featured it in his Third Strike album.

Now we’re not knocking Tinchy, but this has got Lupe’s name written all over it. Listen to both versions below and make your own minds up!

“Life a movie, I’m Lucas / I war with any star; can’t put me in a box like new kicks”

Sway came with FIRE at the Lupe Fiasco Lasers release show in New York and had the crowd in the palm of his hand, with this captivating freestyle.

Despite lack of any ‘overground’ recognition in the UK, Sway continues to come with consistent material and his feature on Lupe Fiasco’s new album is a massive achievement for the boy from our neck of the woods; North London. Could 2011 finally be his year? SME hope so.

[NEW MUSIC] Travis Barker feat. Pharell & Lupe Fiasco – If You Want To by wearesme

Here is a brand new cut from the upcoming Travis Barker album Give The Drummer Some. If You Want To features two big guns in the form of Lupe Fiasco and Pharell Williams.

Travis goes hard on the drums over the catchy beat but this track is all about Lupe who shines with several BIG verses. He had us out of breath just listening! Killed it.

Give A Drummer Some is released on March 15th.

“I’m loving the game / It’s good to know a Lambo isn’t out of my Range / So if I buy both just to rub it in your face; the haters will hate”

Chip jumps on Nicki Minaj’s Moment 4 Life which is proving to be a popular instrumental amongst rappers and MC’s. Not sure about the goons in the background throwing money around; if there was an audio version we’d have posted that!

[NEW MUSIC] Skylar Grey – Love The Way You Lie (Original Demo) by wearesme

On the back of the success of Rihannas ‘Love The Way You Lie’ which she both wrote and performed piano on; it has been a huge year for Skylar Grey so far. She has featured on Diddy Dirty Money’s ‘Coming Home’, Dr Dre & Eminem’s ‘I Need A Doctor’ and most recently Lupe Fiasco’s brand new single ‘Words I Never Said’.

Speaking to PopEater she spoke about ‘Love The Way You Lie’ and revealed that she wanted to let her fans hear the original demo which she sang.

“I wrote the demo initially for myself because I thought, ‘Oh, I have this big song, and now I have a little bit of a launching pad to put out my own stuff.’ As soon as Rihanna and her team heard my demo, they were like, ‘Oh we want it for Rihanna’s album,’ so I had to make the decision if I was going to let them have it or not. But I did and so it was on Rihanna’s album, too. I still felt like it would be cool to let people hear my version of it, too.”

[NEW MUSIC] Lupe Fiasco feat. Skylar Grey – Words I Never Said by wearesme

“I really think the war on terror is a bunch of bullshit, just a poor excuse for you to use up all your bullets”

After the brilliant preview video had everyone’s curiosity sky-high, the full track from Lupe Fiasco is here.

‘Words I Never Said’ doesnt disappoint, and is even more politically charged and controversial than the preview would have suggested. In the second single, produced by Alex Da Kid and taken from the upcoming album ‘Lasers’, Lupe talks in-depth about the war on terror, the failing economy, and education.

A sick beat and thought-provoking lyrics; it’s refreshing not to hear a rapper talking about chains and hoes. Enjoy.

The long awaited album ‘Lasers’ is released on March 8 2011.
