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 [article id="1692039"]"RapFix Live."[/article] 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.
