Lupe Fiasco’s “KJazz,” released hours after “Black Power L Word,” is one of his wordier tracks, which coming from someone striving to be the greatest lyricist of all time, is saying a lot. The song itself is under 2 minutes long and only contains one verse, but Lupe manages to pack in a whole lot of syllables in a short time. A jazz sample paired with driving boom bap drums soundtrack the rapper’s tightly-packed rhymes that travel through Chicago rap history, at times recalling Common’s cadence.
It’s one of many tracks Lupe has released over the course of 2017, a year which began with the release of DROGAS: LIGHT, and the promise of more projects to come. Last we heard, DROGAS: WAVE was the next project to expect, but Fiasco let fans know that it would no longer be coming within the year in an announcement on Twitter in September.
