“Then Tyrannosaurus Rex wasn’t the smartest of the smartest, but you wouldn’t wanna box with the short-armed carnivorous martial artist…”
– quote from “Dinosaurs”
Lupe Fiasco has delivered a track “Dinosaurs” from his new EP, a collaboration with Kaelin Ellis titled “House”. This is likely the closest we have seen to Lupe having fun as he made his best attempt at mirroring the roar of a dinosaur.
In the song, Lupe takes us back to the prehistoric era. There is something pleasant and whimsical about hearing him recount the history of dinosaurs here, especially considering that they are gigantic extinct reptiles.
“Dinosaurs” is mostly about how we are likely to be on the brink of another mass extinction. SLEDOM, as used in the song, depicts “models” spelt backwards and is a pure critique of the modeling industry.
Lupe recorded the final song “LF95” as the original track on the EP before he started to launch this project.
The artist added that the song “Dinosaurs” has an extra meaning. “I feel like I’m one of those dinosaurs stranded on an iceberg somewhere disconnected from the world. That is also part of the message in the song. That Lupe Fiasco is a dinosaur”, he said.
Lupe Fiasco is a rapper from Chicago, a record producer, community advocate, as well an entrepreneur. He already has a Grammy Award attached to his name.
The musician came to limelight in 2006 following the success of his debut album “Food and Liquor”. He already has on release, seven acclaimed studio albums. The latest of the albums is “Drogas Wave” which was released in fall 2018.
He qualified as GQ’s Man of the Year in 2006 and also gained recognition as Henry Crown Fellow. Asides his musical career, Lupe has extended his innovative ideas to projects that aim at fostering creative discourse and opportunities in the less-privileged communities.
