Rapper Lupe Fiasco and red-headed folkie Ed Sheeran probably don’t hang out in the same circles. But from the sounds of their new collaboration “Old School Love” they should start getting together more often. (Listen below.)

The track–off Lupe’s upcoming album, Tetsuo and Youth, due out in 2014–features him reminiscing about the good old days of hip-hop, you know that time before Pro Tools. He shouts out The Fat Boys, Melle Mel, pre-Law & Order Ice-T and late ’80s, early ’90s rap, giving words of wisdom to the kids today: “It takes a long time and it happens so fast to realize your future is somebody else’s past.”

Sheeran sweetly chimes in to sing, “As long I’m here/As long as you love me/Give me that old school love right now,” over a twinkly hook that sweetens up the Chi-town rapper’s lovefest.

Lupe is gearing up for his Tetsuo and Youth Preview Tour, which will kick off on November 2 in Atlanta, where he’ll preview new music and play hits off his previous four albums.
