Stream Lupe Fiasco’s New Album, ‘DROGAS Light’

Lupe’s DROGAS Light LP doesn’t release officially until tomorrow (well, tonight really), but you can stream the album in it’s entirety a day early thanks to the good people at Billboard.

DROGAS Light is the first in a trilogy of albums to come from Lu and the first to be released independently through 1st & 15th/Thirty Tigers. Fourteen tracks deep, the album includes guest appearances from Ty Dolla Sign, Simon Sayz, Gizzle, Big KRIT and many more.

New Lu is always welcomed here, so stream the album below and be sure to cop on iTunes once it’s officially released — and I’m about to do the same.

Lupe Fiasco is done releasing music. For real this time.

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.
