Lupe Fiasco hasn't been releasing music through streaming services. Instead, he's been dropping off new music, whether it be freestyles or short snippets, through social media videos, primarily on Twitter. In 2017, he promised the release of DROGAS Wave before the end of the year but in September, he revealed that he'll be breaking his promises. Nonetheless, he didn't ghost completely, he just dropped off new songs on the Internet. Today, he digs into his vault for his new song "Harold's."
Lupe Fiasco pays homage to Chicago's staple chicken shack with his latest song, "Harold's." The song was initially slated to appear on DROGAS Light but didn't end up making the cut. The song was produced by Chris Dave who comes through with a clean, sample heavy beat.
The rapper released the song as a birthday gift to his friend Huggy Bear.
"Happy Birthday To My Real Brothers Harold “Huggy Bear” Perkins...this one dedicated to you big bro! Love couldn’t find a gift so I figured I bring you back to the crib one time... From the vaults “Harold’s” prod. By Chris Dave," he wrote on Twitter.
So sweet, wanna make your deacon try and crowd swim
Greasy lips while he singing out a loud hymn
Harold's, premier kitchen for the chicken fat
Always hittin' where other finger lickin's missin' at
