Today on Thoughts of a Jeanius we have two New Music Tuesday posts, and in the first one my boy Ivan is back with the first leak from his Addicted to Success mixtape which is dropping later this summer. The song is called, “Miss Me,” and is about people not believing in you on your way to the top, but wanting to jump on the bandwagon when you make it. Cody’s pick is Lupe Fiasco’s new single, “Around My Way (Freedom Ain’t Free).”

Mean Jean’s Pick: Listen to “Miss Me”

Thee Cody Taylor’s Pick: Lupe Fiasco “Around My Way (Freedom Ain’t Free)”

My favorite rapper — Lupe Fiasco — is back, and it sounds like we have the classic Food & Liquor Lupe Fiasco. Lupe released the first single off of his next album — Food & Liquor II: The Great American Album Part I — on Monday, titled “Around My Way (Freedom Ain’t Free).” The only negativity I’ve seen surrounding this song is from those who feel Lupe shouldn’t have sampled Pete Rock & C.L. Smooth’s “They Reminisce Over You,” including Pete Rock himself.  Check it out for yourself and see if Lupe did the original justice.

Food & Liquor II is due out in stores on September 25.

Check out the second New Music Tuesday post later on today, two new picks from Cody!
