Ric Jilla is back with Soope in tow (both artists have recently inked deals with Traxster Inc.) and here’s their latest look for the world, “Personal Trainer”, featuring Twista and Blazed.
This morning, Lupe Fiasco dropped by Angela Yee’s The Morning After show on Shade 45 to discuss a slew of topics including Atlantic Records, his new single, his beef with MTV and Blogs and even shouted out Prolyfic.
He gets a lot off his chest here and it’s nice to hear his side of the story. Check out all 5 parts below courtesy of RapRadar.

Drake made a tour stop in the Chi a couple of weeks ago (two sold out nights at the Chicago Theater), and while on stage he shouted out who he thought was part of the “new cycle of hip-hop”. Of course, Drake mentioned the obvious – Wiz Khalifa, Kid Cudi – but then claimed Chicago’s next up were the L.E.P. Bogus Boys. That’s about as real as it gets.
In other Low End Professional news, yesterday, Global Grind named L.E.P. Bogus Boys #3 on their list of “Rappers You Need To Know”, alongside Curren$y, Vado, J. Cole, Big K.R.I.T. and others.

Why They Are Great New Rappers: Chi-Town’s L.E.P. Bogus Boys harken back to the days of great rap groups like Mobb Deep and the Lost Boyz – they tackle the same “gangsta” subject matter in an interesting, lyrical way and have great production. Their profile has risen a lot in the past few months and with good reason, they’re making some of the best rap music of anyone right now.
Directed by Ike Films. Co-starring Drew Sidora.
This joint premiered on 106 & Park today and is currently airing on MTV Jams. Love, Life & Loyalty is available now everywhere.

This afternoon, Lupe Fiasco premiered his new single from Lasers ,”The Show Goes On”, via Ustream at the Atlantic Records offices. Pretty catchy tune. It’s about time somebody flipped that Modest Mouse joint.
Lupe also stated he plans to kick-off his Generation Lasers tour in Chicago where he will premiere all of the new material from Lasers. He also refuted claims that he’ll be joining Kanye’s G.O.O.D. Music label, explaining that it’s better to be a General than a Soldier. Agreed.
