For what he says is one of his final radio interviews, Lupe stopped by Sway In The Morning and talked about everything from his fifth studio album, hip hop culture, Chicago’s hip hop scene, the situation with Kid Cudi, Chief Keef and much more.
That’s not all, though. Lu ended the interview with a freestyle over “’93 Til Infinity,” and you it’s a treat when Lupe’s spitting straight off-the-dome. Watch the full interview above then hit the jump to check out Lu’s freestyle. Remember — Lu’s Tetsuo & Youth LP (which is pretty great) is available in stores and on iTunes now.
Lu was on 107.5 WGCI last night with DJ MoonDawg, where he opened up about a plethora of topics including his new album Tetsuo & Youth (obviously), but interestingly enough, Moon and Lupe discuss the next phase of Lupe’s career. T&Y was Lupe’s last commitment to Atlantic Records and is now a free agent within the industry, so he’s weighing his options for next steps (for the third phase of his career as he calls it). He also talks about working with local artists such as Rondo, Fredo and Lil Durk. There’s some interesting things in the works there.
So it will be dope to see where Lu goes from here. But let’s not get too caught up on that, let’s just celebrate the dope new album for now.
Making the rounds promoting his critically acclaimed new album, Tetsuo & Youth, last night Lupe Fiasco dropped by Late Night With Seth Meyers and performed his single “Deliver,” sans Ty Dolla $ign.
It’s nice to see Lu’s new album being lauded by fans and critics alike, many who think it’s his best rapping since The Cool. Well, to that I say: if you think he hasn’t been rapping like this, then you obviously didn’t listen to F&L2 very carefully. Nothing but gems on that album.
Anyhoo, Tetsuo & Youth is on track to move a respectable 35,000-40,000 units in week one per Hits Daily Double. Be sure to cop that now.
In case you’ve been living under a rock, Lupe Fiasco dropped a new album last today. Tetsuo & Youth. You’ve likely heard of it? Hopefully you’ve heard it. And maybe even bought it. To help promote the project, Lu sat down with DJ Skee last night on SkeeTV to talk about the opus and a whole slew of other relevant topics. Trust they run the gamut of all recent Lupe Fiasco-related activities here.
In fact, the Skee people were even nice enough to break it down by the second and minute. Bravo. Go buy that album now, and get that copy signed by Lu himself tonight at Exclusive 773.
Lupe’s fifth album, Tetsuo & Youth is finally here. It dropped at 12am today, and is available in stores and at fine digital retailers everywhere. You should buy it. But you can also now stream, so please do both. The rapping on it is exquisite and the production is dope as well.
If you’d like to purchase a hard copy and have it signed by Lupe Fiasco himself, you can head to Exclusive 773 tonight for his official Chicago in-store. 6pm. Check out more details here.
Stream T&Y below, but se sure to also buy and support one of the best artists in the game. You can thank us later.
Lupe Fiasco f/ Billy Blue, Buk of PsychoDrama, Trouble, Trae The Truth, Fam-Lay & Glasses Malone – Chopper
Produced by DJ Dahi.
We’ve been waiting to hear this record since Lupe first talked about it in December 2013 and now the wait’s over. “Chopper”, which features Fam-Lay, Glasses Malone, Billy Blue, Trouble, Trae The Truth and Buk of PsychoDrama, is finally here.
Man, everyone snapped here. Hit the jump and stream “Chopper.” Tetsuo & Youth hits stores and digital retailers Tuesday (1/20).
Lupe links with frequent collaborator Guy Sebastian yet again for this new one they’re calling “Linger.” This has nothing to do with The Cranberries song of the same name. You get that reference or nah? Nah, right?
Tetsuo & Youth drops next week.
Produced by DJ Dahi.
Lu’s Tetsuo & Youth is only 15 days away. Yikes! That really crept up on us, no? So as he continues to keep fans excited for the album, he dropped a new record out of the sky featuring Crystal Torres, titled “Adoration of the Magi.”
It’s a jazzy, slow-roller that features Lu’s patented dizzying wordplay and insightful lyrics. He continues to keep our antennas up. Go ahead and pre-order the album now, and stay tuned for what Lupe is going to do next — because you never know.
Lupe’s new single, “Deliver,” has so much depth in. Meanings on top of meanings, that spawns deeper than what meets the eye. On “Deliver,” Lupe does it for the community, his people, and his rabid fans who hang on to his every word. You could learn a thing or two from Mr. Fiasco.
Enjoy his latest visual from Tetsuo & Youth above. Stay tuned for the album to drop next month. No pushbacks.
