Patrick Stump, lead singer of Fall Out Boy, produced a beat for the song “Little Weapons” on Lupe Fiasco’s upcoming album The Cool.

“He got his Kanye West on,” Fiasco said of Stump. “It’s a song called ‘Little Weapon,’ and it talks about child soldiers. The bulk of The Cool is kind of dark. It comes from a dark place. So ‘Little Weapon’ is about the coolness — so-called coolness — of child soldiers. It’s a real ill record.”

“I love how this one worked,” Stump added. “We had a few snags, but in general, it was awesome, because I got to ask him about feel, like, ‘What type of vibe do you want for this song?’ And then I got to hear him take it to different places. I didn’t have to steer too much, which is awesome. … And I didn’t sing on [the track], so this is a real test to see if I can make real music without my voice.”
