Lupe Fiasco - "Around My Way (Freedom Ain't Free)" Music Video
Lupe Makes His Way On the Streets
Chicago rapper Lupe Fiasco has unveiled the music video for “Around My Way (Freedom Ain’t Free)”, the first single off his upcoming LP, Food & Liquor 2: The Great American Rap Album. The four-minute video features Fiasco rapping on a rooftop and sidewalk with glowing white eyes, driving around in a Lamborghini and loitering on front stoops with some cartoon friends.

The song started controversy for sampling Pete Rock and C.L. Smooth’s 1992 classic “They Reminisce Over You (T.R.O.Y.)”. However, the rappers seemed to resolve the issue shortly after.
