At the end of November Lupe dropped his mixtape Friend of the People. Coming off the anti-climatic release of LASERS which let’s be honest, was made for the radio and was not Lupe’s best work, Friend of the People samples many electronic beats that show Lupe’s return to hip hop brilliance.
Using dubstep samples from Skrillex, Bassnectar, and Nero as well as samples from electronic artists like M83 and Justice, Lupe shows us his versatility and ability to cross genres while still letting his rap intelligence shine.
