Lupe Fiasco - Pound Of Flesh / Paris Tokyo 2

Drake's Nothing Was The Same has dominated the week's conversation, so it's fitting that Lupe Fiasco would grab a track from the album for his latest leak. Also fitting is the fact that Drake and Lupe both have a Paris in their lives (Paris Morton and "Paris, Tokyo," respectively)
, so Lupe takes the chance, like Drake, to offer a sequel by rapping over the beat for "Pound Cake/Paris Morton Music 2."
It's all straightforward battle raps, with aggressive lines like "your beat is in my bedroom, giving head to him" and "when the fire gone then I quit." Interestingly, he ends the song with shout outs to a number of Chicago artists, including several that he's expressed concern about in the past. Lil DurkLil MouseChief KeefChance the RapperCommon and Kanye West are among those referenced in his roll call of Illinois artists.
