The first single from Lupe Fiasco’s new upcoming album saw its “official” debut on iTunes this past Tuesday. Check it out—Shining Down featuring Matthew Santos, from the upcoming Lasers album:
Hey Champ x Lupe Fiasco x FNF
With influences from “art, history, science, the 80s, cartoons, Where in the World is Carmen San Diego, and of course personal misfortune/insecurity”, Hey Champ rocks it. The band is made up of Saam Hagshenas (vox, guitar, keys), Jon Marks (rhythm, vox, keys), and Pete Dougherty (keys, synths).
I’m digging their music video for Gold Dust Girl. The opening part just reminds me of the rave scene from Matrix Reloaded (after Morpheus addresses Zion, and Neo & Trinity gets jiggy). Anyways, check it out:
By the way, Lupe just recently signed them to his label FNF. For him to pick them up, you know they are headed no other way than up! Here’s Lupe broadcasting Hey Champ’s signing:
Congrats! FNF UP!
