Towards the end of 2017, Lupe Fiasco found himself making headlines for two reasons. The first was after he accused Kendrick Lamar of allegedly copying an artcover he used for one of his singles and also saying K.Dot was not a "top tier lyricist." While that was being argued amongst both rappers' fans, Lupe went on his Twitter page and reached out to Proverb about advice on the South African Hip Hop industry which generated quite a buzz in the country. Now, after bluntly stating that he was not to release music last year, we get his first effort of 2018 titled Harold's. Lupe spits some bars over a sampled instrumental as he pays homage to a fried chicken restaurant and a friend of his, both named Harold.

Could 2018 finally be the year that Lupe gives us another album? Let's wait and see.
