Lupe Fiasco, ‘Lamborghini Angels’ | Track Review
Lupe Fiasco delivers another intelligent and clever single with “Lamborghini Angels.” As always, his flow is solid, driving, and unfaltering.
Lupe Fiasco releases another single (the third) from his forthcoming fourth studio album. “Lamborghini Angels” is well produced, characterized by its clapping synthetic drums, transposed lowered pitched vocal interjections/effects, and that never ending synthetic loop. If nothing else, Lupe’s flow is solid, driving, and unfaltering. The lyrics are as brainy as ever:
“With a circle on the floor he compels them to be pure/pulls the beast out of his heart then impales it on a sword…”
That’s his gift and charm.
Opening with random speech –“It’s a mad world out there I tell you, the world’s gone stark raving mad” – the speech sample serves as a prelude to the hook.
“I see diamond-flooded demons, Lamborghini angels… /Halos down with the doors flapping when they came through…”
Following his hook, Lupe Fiasco is simply on fire. It takes a couple of listens to follow all of his rhymes and to receive the full effect of his message. Once you do however, the magic of “Lamborghini Angels” shines brightly. Intelligent and clever by all means.
