Lupe retiring? Never that. Just weeks after announcing his resignation from the rap game, he’s back with new music — and a new album. Lu’s long awaited Drogas Light project is due out on February 10th, and today we have his “Wild Child” single featuring Jake Torrey.

Drogas Light is the first album of Lupe’s Drogas trilogy, which is also set to include Drogas and Skulls. And on top of all of this information, Lu has announced the official track list for Drogas Light, which includes work with Ty Dolla $ign, Big Krit and Rick Ross.

Sad news.

Yes, Lupe Fiasco has toyed with retirement in the past, but this time I think he’s for real. I know I’ve gone on record as saying rappers never really retire, but this could be the end for Lu. Yesterday, Lupe dropped his “N.E.R.D. (Freestyle)” where he spit a line about “dirty Jewish execs,” that did not sit well with the general public (understandably, of course). In fact, Soundcloud found it offensive enough to remove from their site.

After a barrage of attacks on social media, Lupe took to Twitter to announce that he’s done with releasing music and that his forthcoming projects are on hold: “albums cancelled.” Is this the end? Only time will tell.

Today marks the 10 year anniversary of Lupe Fiasco’s seminal debut, Lupe Fiasco’s Food & Liquor. Hard to believe, right? 10 years has flown by, and today Lu took the time to share his thoughts on F&L 10 years later. He even drops an exclusive track at the very end.

F&L was an influential album that kicked off an esteemed career for Lu, after dropping a slew of unforgettable mixtapes. I remember interest in Lu was so high after he appeared on Kanye’s “Touch The Sky,” and he delivered with his debut despite the heavy bootlegging. It was a moment in time that was perfectly captured here — from the lyrics to the beats (Pro, Trakk, Neptunes, Kanye). Lupe can still outrap your favorite rapper, and that’s a fact.

I maintain that the leaked version of F&L is the best version of F&L, but both are classics, imo.
