Lupe and Ed release visuals for Old School Love
Lupe Fiasco has released a collaboration with Ed Sheeran called “Old School Love.”
Over a smooth, laidback instrumental, Lupe tells the tale of a wholesome love and namedrops several of hip-hop’s older groups like the Juice Crew and the Fat Boys.
It’s directed by Coodie and Chike and finds the Chicago MC longing for days past in hip-hop.
He name-drops a handful of notable ’80s artists, like Melle Mel and The Fat Boys, while delivering a nostalgic message about learning from those who paved the way for rappers like himself.
The video blends light animation with footage of children playing in the street. It also includes guest Ed Sheeran, who takes a seat alongside Lupe on a couch while they watch the video on an old school television set, bringing the concept full circle.
