"Bitch Bad" - an interesting title alone for Lupe Fiasco and the song itself will raise your eyebrows even higher. Lupe likens toward a lazy flow to provide his commentary and storytelling on the misconceptions and flat out, negatives, of the female youth desiring to be a 'bitch' without knowing the various interpretations of it from their parents or guys their age. Quite frankly, I was pretty surprised at the lyrics and overall tone from Lupe on the first verse, which made much more sense as you dissected the words and continued on through the song. By the time Lupe brings it together in the last verse, I found myself really appreciating the creative way Lu is putting out this message. And musically, he hasn't really flowed like this so that helps drive home the uniqueness of the record as well. As one would assume, "Bitch Bad" isn't quite radio material; it's just another piece of commentary from Fiasco and one that you should definitely hear for yourselves above. The lyrics and concept alone make it a *Tibs Fav.™, and while Lu did kill the lazy flow, I'd rather hear his usual, more straight forward flow over a better production, as this wasn't quite doin' it for me either. "Bitch Bad" is on iTunes at midnight and Food & Liquor II: TGARA drops September 25th, so sure enough, there will be more Lupe Fiasco to come leading up to it this summer!
