(An interesting interview with Lupe)
Lupe Fiasco is behind a pet project known as Japanese Cartoon. I guess this is an avenue for the prolific artist to put his own touch on the Alt Rock world. The beatboxing as the beat for Army shows the goes to show Hip Hop’s influence. While the songs may not instantly grab you,Â if you let it play through, you will certainly come to appreciate and love these two tracks!
Peace, Love, and Alt-Rock,
The Monarch[audio:Japanese Cartoon by Lupe Fiasco – Heirplanes.mp3,Japanese Cartoon by Lupe Fiasco – Army.mp3]
