Lupe Fiasco is taking things back to his roots on his fourth studio album, Food & Liquor II: The Great American Rap Album, and it's apparent in the video for the album's controversial first single, "Around My Way (Freedom Ain't Free)."

Throughout the Alex Nazari-directed visual, Lu' strolls through the streets of Chicago sporting glowing, demon-like eyes, rapping every politic-laden verse effortlessly. Check it out above.
