At a time when artists are trying to take their music to places other than on earth (hello Kid Cudi and Yung LA), Lupe Fiasco is especially determined to reach the stratosphere, as we can hear on his latest promo track I’m Beamin. After having leaked last month, infuriating Lupe in the process, this Neptunes-produced, synth-soaked track is now officially enjoying its time in the spotlight. More than almost anyone else, Lupe has undoubtedly earned his I’m-better-than-you-and-I-can-say-it license (which he makes full use of lyrically), but this track lacks a certain indefinable ingredient that makes it good for most other emcees, but just average for Lupe. It’s definitely no Kick Push or Superstar, but chances are it’ll hold its own amongst a DJBooth community starving for all the new Lupe it can get. I’m Beamin will be available on iTunes at the end of this month, but Lupe’s upcoming album, Lasers, still has no set release date. Keep it locked for updates.
