In support of his new album Drogas Light, Lupe Fiasco debuted the project's second single "Jump" featuring Gizzle on Zane Lowe's Beats 1 radio show Tuesday (Jan. 10). 
On "Jump", Fiasco flexes his lyrical storytelling. With his longtime producer Soundtrakk (who produced "Kick Push" and "Sunshine") on the beat, Fiasco narrates a street tale on the bass-heavy track. "Move a thousand miles per hour down the street of my slum/ And who do I meet, to the beat of my drum/ It was little Susie Uzi, she sold crack and was a killer/ All bitch dope tip, wasn't trappin' with no n---as," he spits.
The track is a complete contrast from his first offering "Wild Child," on which Fiasco aims for a more radio-friendly vibe with singer Jake Torrey crooning on the hook.
