Lupe's punk rock/electronica band outta Japan, Japanese Cartoon, updated their Facebook page this weekend to say their new album has a release date and that it is coming very soon! Definitely some good news for Lupe fans craving some new music. I predict that they will come through on the album coming soon though since I bet it will be released off an indie label and they won't have to deal with any major (label) headaches. But wait a second, Japanese Cartoon? Not sure who or what I'm talkin' about? Lupe Fiasco on lead vocals and Le Messe and Graham Burris on production and bass make up Japanese Cartoon. Listen to a few of their tracks at the Japanese Cartoon MySpace. Enjoy!
