Lupe Fiasco Releases First Album Since The Stone Ages With ‘DRILL MUSIC IN ZION’




Returning with his first new album since 2018, Lupe Fiasco shares ‘DRILL MUSIC IN ZION.’ The product of a burst of thoughtful spontaneity, Lupe created the new album over a short period, diving into a folder of beats sent by Soundtrakk and emerging with a fully-realized album in apparently three days.

The title juxtaposes the street music of his hometown of Chicago–music that emerged as a way of dealing with hellish living conditions–with the biblical promised land, positing that art created out of pain might not be worth the pain itself.

“I’m trying to find a balance between the whimsy and the profound,” says Lupe.

Though it was created quickly, Lupe’s eighth studio album is packed with the twisty narratives and layered meanings that have become Lupe’s trademark, spliced with incisive social commentary and winking observations about the way we live today. 

As a life long fan of mister kick, push, coast, I’m glad to see him back in his element.
