In “Hustlaz”, Lupe tells a detailed story of a young up and coming artist in the music game in”Hustlaz”. Comparing them to the daily struggles of life in the streets, Lupe writes, “I roll like cherry red Jell-O dice/ It’s Was, just the pot calling the kettle white.” According to a press release, “Hustlaz” will be featured on 1st & 15th productions upcoming EP Chill’s Spotlight 2.
