it’s weird living in a time where lupe fiasco just released a good album. it’s been a long time since i’ve felt that after a release – 2007’s the cool – to be exact. watch two excellent performances of “the adoration of the magi” and “deliver” (below the jump).
lupe is currently making his rounds on the late night/promotional circuit. he stopped by late night with seth meyers and absolutely killed his performance of “deliver.”
below the jump, watch lupe fiasco’s interview with sway – he explains his beef with cudi and why he left twitter. he also had a freestyle for us – deemed “his last radio freestyle.”
lupe fiasco is only 15 days out from the release of tetsuo & youth, but why stop pushing now? here’s another single, produced by dj dahi.
T&Y drops jan 20th, 2015.
lu’s “deliver” reminds me of “gotta eat.” while the video and song itself take on the lyrics’ literal meanings, it’s definitely about something much bigger than that – bringing light to the perils of the rougher parts of the chi.
tetsuo & youth is out jan. 20.
long time collaborator nikki jean shows up for an FnF affair on lupe’s newest single. tetsuo & youth is coming up quick, with its january 20th release date approachin.
it’s weird to hear a remix for a song that’s 7 years old, but tokimonsta killed this remix.
fake shore drive let us know that T&Y is almost here, in about six weeks. check the tracklisting below.
3. ‘Blur My Hands’ (Feat. Guy Sebastian)
4. ‘Dots & Lines’
6. ‘Prisoner 1 & 2′ (Feat. Ayesha Jaco)
7. ‘Body Of Work’ (Feat. Troi & Terrance Martin)
8. ‘Little Death’ (Feat. Nikki Jean)
9. ‘No Scratches’ (Feat. Nikki Jean)
11. ‘Chopper’ (Feat. Billy Blue, Buk Of Psychodrama, Trouble, Trae Tha Truth, Fam Lay & Glasses Malone)
13. ‘Madonna (And Other Mothers In The Hood)’ [Feat. Nikki Jean]
14. ‘Adoration Of The Magi’ (Feat. Crystal Torres)
15. ‘They.Resurrect.Over.New’ (Feat. Ab-Soul & Troi)
tetsuo and youth drops january 20th.
is this gonna be lupe fiasco’s best project since the cool? with the three latest drops from the project being consistent – i’m aiming towards yes.
it’s #FBF for lupe fiasco, apparently. for his latest outing, he takes us back to the days of the cool, brings nikki jean on “haile selassie.” that not enough? no other than longtime collaborator soundtrakk behind the boards for this gem.
his new tape, lost in the atlantic ocean, is coming soon.
lupe will forego the release of tetsuo and youth (which is now slated for a january 2015 release) with a mixtape, lost in the atlantic ocean. this one is assumed to be taken from the latter release, which will drop sometime in november (i’m guessing).
in lu of anything (yeah, went there) from a new track off of tetsuo and youth, lupe fiasco checks in with a gritty new track “for the streets” as they like to say. listen below.
after releasing “mission” for SU2C (stand up 2 cancer), lupe fiasco enlists two high profiled guests from his hometown for the follow-up single, “remission.” it will be on itunes soon, but for now, enjoy the studio footage.
lupe fiasco’s lead single from tetsuo and youth has a lot more commercial appeal than i understand, but having ty on board definitely helps. no one knows what to expect from lu’s fifth studio LP, but the fact that people are still even remotely interested says plenty.
the album will be out later this year.
lupe fiasco’s new album, tetsuo and youth, is slowly shaping up. glad to see lu branching out a bit – and the newest one employs ty dolla behind the production boards, as well as a featured artist on the track.
radio rip for now – CDQ coming soon. xclusiveszone came through with a CDQ.
lupe fiasco – next to it (feat. ty dolla sign; CDQ)
MTV’s latest premiere comes from ab-soul’s incoming follow-up to control system, these days, which drops on june 24th. this one brings nikki jean back (damn girl, where the hell you been?) and employs lupe fiasco for a verse.
