With politicians quick to point out the negatives in hip-hop, some must wonder, “are there any positives??” Answering that question with a resounding “Yes!” is Lupe Fiasco, who tells the story of an aspiring MC who can truly say “Hip Hop Saved My Life.” Surrounded by problems with his family, his woman, and his baby son, the song’s fictional rapper gets into super-grind mode so everyone can be happy. Accompanied by a soft, soulful hook from singer Nikki Jean (you’ve got company, Chrisette) and the relaxing, classic-sounding production of Soundtrakk, Hip Hop Saved My Life will evoke emotions for aspiring artists and their fans alike. Hip Hop Saved My Life (along with Paris, Tokyo) are set to be official releases from his stellar album The Cool.
