Lupe Fiasco plans to drop a new single on October 14. The single will feature the British icon, Ed Sheeran.
This follows new that Lupe Fiasco plans to drop his new album called Tetsuo & Youth. The album doesn't have a release yet but expect one soon.
Keef is your typical gangster rapper who is raps about committing crimes. Chicago has been in the spotlight for its ruthless killing over the past months. Rappers like Common have openly said they want to do something to stop it but nothing has been done yet.
Lupe declared his retirement after the online argument with Chief Keef but it seems like that isn't the case. Fiasco has released a few freestyles over the past two months that are layered with complicated lyricism that will most likely require you to open a new tab for RapGenius.
Hip hop isn't defined by one style. Some artists rap about drugs and guns while others rap about their own life. Some rappers rap about a fictional like or what they spend their money on. Rappers like Lupe Fiasco are rare. They use complicated lyricism to get their point across. Jay Z, Common and Eminem have also been known for using witty lyricism but Lupe exceeds them all.
Lupe Fiasco is one of the greatest lyricist to pick up the mic and will easily go down as one of the best. He has dropped classic albums like Lupe Fiasco's Food and Liquor and The Cool.
His recent albums haven't been as good as his early albums but that is a issue that rises with many artists. They seem to not touch their classic album status but still make good albums. Even though Lupe hasn't had recent classic albums, his songs have reached higher in the billboards. He is clearly still a relevant artist and his newest album should also be good considering he always has a message behind his songs.
Lupe is going to be touring starting in November so catch him if he is performing in a place near you.
