Chicago MC Lupe Fiasco achieves a remarkable duality on his first single, a soulful, summertime love letter to skateboarding (wherever you can, because you can, as long as you can) imparted with cool nonchalance over producer Soundtrakk's brassy slopes and steady, measured drums. At the core of this song's heavy-lidded, willful aimlessness is a Zen-like chorus that doubles as a mellow life metaphor: "So let's kick ... and push ... and coast."
