After Kendrick Lamar took the airwaves last week with his uncensored rant against hip-hop contemporaries in “Control,” Lupe Fiasco extended his response via the third leg of his “SLR” series. Titled “Round Of Applause,” the Chicago native flaunts his tongue-in-cheek wordplay across a sturdy four-minute number. Although Lupe doesn’t take direct hits at Kendrick Lamar, his acute rhymes question Lamar’s motives, in addition to addressing his own social media status: “Still gets headlines even though my Twitter locked.” Proving to be another captivating release, enjoy the track below and stay tuned for Lupe’s forthcoming album Tetsuo & Youth.
