Kanye West, Lupe Fiasco & Pharrell (Child Rebel Soldiers) “Don’t Stop” (Listen & Download)Posted by Nathan S. on 10/11/10 | Filed under Top Stories, Downloads, Kanye West, Lupe Fiasco, Good Friday, Pharrell
Quick back story: A couple years ago Kanye, Lupe and Pharrell were all on the "Glow in the Dark" tour and decided to start messing around and recording music under the name Child Rebel Soldiers, even going so far as to release a couple joints ("Everybody Nose" and "Us Placers"). Predictably the supergroup never really worked out because of the usual label politics and individual schedules/projects, making Child Rebel, essentially, a hip-hop cocktease.
Well apparently Yeezy ran out of time this week because he dug back into his catalog and pulled out "Don't Stop", a joint Lupe revealed was just the three of them messing around. Well goddamn then guys, keep messing. That might just be the best Pharrell verse I've ever heard (maybe some Kanye ghostwriting?), and the same goes for Lupe, who spits a verse sicker than anything we've heard in months from the man. And then Kanye finishes it off strong - these guys bring out the best in each other. Shame there's no f**king way we'll ever get an album out of em.
(Side note: Atlantic gave Lupe's "Lasers" a March 2011 release date, which is the kind of thing you do when you don't have any intentions of releasing an album but want the people boycotting outside your offices to shut up.)
