Watch: Lupe Fiasco’s ‘Deliver’
Socially conscious and metaphorically vivid, Lupe’s visual for his latest single, “Deliver” featuring Ty Dolla $ign addresses the ills of the inner-community.
With Chicago serving as the lyrical and visual backdrop of the song, its references illustrate the pizza delivery man’s avoidance of the hood due to “too much dope, too many n—‘s on the porch, so the pizza man don’t approach…”
The story is painted truthfully, yet painfully which makes the art and its message beautiful.
Lupe Fiasco’s fifth album, Tetsuo & Youth is scheduled for a January 20th release.
