Lupe Fiasco may be best known for delivering fans his unforgettable debut album Food & Liquor, but no matter what, the LP the Chicago lyricist always manages to give us food for thought.
On Wednesday at 4 p.m. ET, Lu will deliver another serving of brain food when he premieres his “Bitch Bad” video on “RapFix Live.” The clip will also air simultaneously on MTV Jams, mtvU, MTV Hits and MTV.com and then immediately after the “Kick, Push” MC will join “RapFix” host Sway Calloway and a number of industry pundits to discuss the message behind his new clip.
“Whether right or wrong, some things need to be said in order to start a conversation … that’s all I try to do with my music,” said Lupe Fiasco in an MTV press release Tuesday (August 21).
“Bitch Bad” is the latest single off of Lu’s Food & Liquor II: The Great American Rap Album Pt. 1, which is due out in stores on September 25. In the song, Fiasco lyrically contemplates the long-term psychological effects of the word “bitch,” by weaving together a narrative of both a young boy and girl who are separately exposed to the degrading language.
Fans should expect an equally open-minded video. A still-shot from the Gil Green-directed video shows a young lady applying black makeup to her face.
“RapFix” viewers can expect a pretty eventful day because the Broad Street Bully, Beanie Sigel, will also stop by the set to talk about his new album, This Time and his pending two-year prison bid for tax evasion. It’s a special episode that you shouldn’t miss.
