Lupe Fiasco looks to a classic painting and a new Lil Wayne and Kendrick Lamar collaboration for inspiration on his latest release, “Left to Right.” Specifically, the Infamous- and Ohnel-produced track is a remix of Lil Wayne’s Carter V cut “Mona Lisa” and its cover-art even involves Leonardo da Vinci’s famous 15th century work of art The Last Supper.

“I had a couple hrs 2 kill so I wanted to practice. I liked Wayne & Kdots Mona Lisa so i wanted to flip it but use a different painting so I took davincis the last supper & put a story to it that reads left to right. If u listen to the song while looking at the painting you’ll see,” he tweeted upon dropping the record.

“Niggas gather round, we about to feast / Boy, get your hands off the table, you can have a seat,” Lupe Fiasco raps. “Blood won’t you talk to your homie, think he in on it? / Hold up, I got nothing to do with it, I put 10 on it / Yea, playboy got the shank, he gon poke him up, ay / Don’t be talkin’ behind my back, say that to both of us.”
