All praises due to Haile Selassie.
After patching things up with his label, Lupe Fiasco releases a new cut dedicated to the highly respected and revered Ethiopian emperor Haile Selassie.
“Haile Selassie” is said to appear on Lupe’s Lost In The Atlantic project, which should be dropping soon. Lupe includes one of Selassie’s most notable quotes in the song:
“Until the philosophy which holds one race superior and another inferior is finally and permanently discredited and abandoned, everywhere is war and until there are no longer first-class and second-class citizens of any nation, until the color of a man’s skin is of no more significance than the color of his eyes.” – Haile Selassie
