According to Amazon, the Lupe Fiasco’s single, Shining Down, will drop on July 7th. The final version isn’t that different from the leak some of you may have heard already. Matthew Santos’ chorus is a bit altered now and some of the instrumentation behind Lupe’s words are less extravagant; it’s a bit toned down from the original version but it’s still a very solid track, so be on the lookout for it in a few weeks.
Just as a side note, I am going to Lupe’s concert tonight at the Chicago Theatre in Chicago, Illinois. Just a few weeks ago I was there for Kanye West, and tonight I will be there for Lupe. Wow. So, for the rest of the day, that is what I will be doing. Oww.
