First Lupe leaves Twitter, then he deletes all of his tweets and all but five of his followers, now we get the news today that he has canceled his next album "Food & Liqour Part 2". Here's what he said today:
Since he isn't tweeting anymore we'll just have to wait to hear any further news on the album or Lupe in general. As big fan of Lupe I can't wait to see what he'll be replacing Food & Liquor 2 with. I would say we'll keep you posted but I'm not sure if or how we will do that.
Late night TV was in for a hip hop treat tonight in its first night of 2013. Big Boi was on Letterman (below) while Lupe Fiasco invaded Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, bringing with him Guy Sebastian for a performance of "Battle Scars". They were, of course, accompanied by The Roots for some background instrumentation, but Lupe & Guy definitely stood out in the forefront. Lupe spit word for word while Guy flipped his delivery to bring something fresh to all those used to his voice on the studio version. All in all, another dope performance of the high-charting single Food & Liquor II: The Great American Rap Album Pt. 1, in stores now.
And here's GIF 2 of 3 of the night... I been seeing and holding onto these that you guys are just going to get a bonanza of them tonight. Kansas Men's Basketball dancing in the locker room. Over/under on how many times you'll watch this: 10.
Lupe Fiasco, delivers out of nowhere, a fresh new set of bars that cleverly mixes his superb wordplay, alliteration, and storytelling for an untitled, turned self-promoting new track called "LupeFiascoStore.com".
You'll have to run this back a few times to catch every word and meaning. I'm still doing so after a few listens myself. Easy *Tibs Fav. by Lu (over Common's "Communism").
Lu is closing his Twitter account and re-launching it at the start of 2013. In the meantime, you can follow... you guessed it... @LupeFiascoStore for more updates.
Check out this interview with Lupe as he opens up about several different topics, including why he would never sign to G.O.O.D. Music, going indie, favorite rappers, and more. The interview is long but a good viewing. I rock with you on the White Sox pick, but picking Blackberry is like my parents using Internet Explorer. Can't cosign that one.
Lupe Fiasco took to Twitter to announce a flurry of upcoming singles and albums due out in the next six months or so. Definitely looking forward to all of these; we had known of FL2GARApt2 for next spring, but not SNDCLSH and the Japanese Cartoon re-release (ITJOTLOD still gets some good run in my shuffle). Lots to look forward to Lupe fans!
