Lupe Fiasco has always been outspoken about the issues and social injustices in this country, and his new video paints a strong picture of his views. The Chicago rapper releases the visuals for his “Made in the USA” record, which talks about the toxic events and views that the youth have to absorb daily.
The video from the “Jump” MC depicts some powerful imagery on an older television set, which is being watched by a small baby. The small child cries as he soaks up some of the scenes from moments in history, as Lupe raps his verses on the set. There’s even a moment where the little boy crawls over to a gun on the ground and holds it after seeing it also being shown on the television screen.
The Streetrunner-produced song, which originally dropped last November, speaks on a lot of different topics that are affecting the U.S. today, including guns, drugs, hip-hop and more.
While fans are still hoping for the three albums they were previously promised from Lupe, who revealed they wouldn’t be dropping last year due to clearance issues, he’s tiding them over with these new visuals.
Watch the music video for Lupe’s “Made In the USA” record below to see what the youth are absorbing in this country.
