As far as substance-driven music, you’re going to hear a lot on the internet about the latest release from Lupe Fiasco, as his sequel to the original Food And Liquor has dropped for mass consumption, and although that album is solid in its own right, it’s still a shame that it’s release may possibly overshadow this gem from Brother Ali.

Well, this song’s about to take over the internet tonight. The Cruel Summer single has leaked in it’s entirety and is sure to be making it’s rounds as you read this.
