Lupe Fiasco and Soundtrakk have linked up for a boisterous two-track pack titled Tape Tape, featuring songs “Oh Yes” and “Apologetic.”

Soundtrakk, Lupe’s longtime producer, has been working with the Chicago rapper since the days of Lupe Fiasco’s Food & Liquor, churning out hits like “Kick, Push,” “Sunshine,” “Paris, Tokyo” and “Superstar,” to mention a few. Now, the duo has crafted two heavy hitters that showoff Lupe’s lyrical prowess. “Oh Yes” embodies a gloomy midtempo groove, complete with airy synths and crisp trap-inspired drums. “Apologetic,” on the other hand, switches things up with a quicker beat that gets Lupe firing off a steady flow of rhythmically textured lines, like “Locate, lockdown, loot up, lights on lock-in, and produce / Albert Einstein, b*itch, I’m in here cookin’ up a nuke.” Both songs hover around the three-minute mark.

Scroll below to listen to the tracks “Oh Yes” and “Apologetic” on Lupe Fiasco and Soundtrakk’s Tape Tape.
