Lupe Fiasco handily spelled out the problem with his new Ty Dolla $ign produced-track '$nitches' via its cover. The problem? It makes him sound like the kind of person who saw The Wolf of Wall Street and said "Awesome! That's the kind of life I want!." A few years ago he was politically pissed off and out for blood, you might have taken a hook like "snitches get stitches" seriously then, but he's adopted a smooth new R&B croon, and it's never going to start a revolution. His voice is pleasant enough, but all it has to offer is veiled threats and wealthy brags. Lupe used to sound hungry, now he seems happy to just sit by the pool.
