Tag: Lupe Fiasco
Not to brag, but you have to agree that we throw dope events — and last night was no exception. We warned you ahead of time that this particular FSD & Red Bull Sound Select concert was going to be special, and we more than showed and proved. We’ll bring you a more in-depth recap a little later, but first we had to give you one of the absolute highlights. That being Ty bringing out none other than Lupe Fiasco for their collaboration, “$nitches.”
Towards the end of Ty’s sold out performance, he invited Lupe to the stage much to the crowds surprise. Check out the crowds reaction and watch them kill it in the clip above. Shouts to Pursuit of Dopeness for grabbing it.
Good and evil. Heaven and hell. The yin and the yang. Lu and Ab explore both sides on this new unexpected leak titled “Thorns & Horns.” Some really great rapping takes place here. I mean really great.
Lu’s dropped enough tracks as of late to put out a mixtape. Hopefully that’s what’s happening here.
After giving everyone “$nitches” and “30′s” earlier this week, Lu returns with another new joint he’s calling “DopeBoysAtAllStarWeekend”. This new record features Gizzle and per Lu, should be played before listening to “30′s”.
Play this first then 30′s #DROGAS #DROGAS #DROGAS #THOT97
Lu teased a Drogas mixtape a while ago, I wouldn’t be surprised if it surfaced soon and included these new records he’s been blessing us with. Would be nice, right? Stream Lupe’s latest drop below.
Produced by Ty Dolla $ign.
After teasing it a while back, Lupe liberates his collaboration with Atlantic label mate Ty Dolla $ign — “$nitches”. After hearing this one, we’re going to need some more joints from Lu and Ty. Word has it that this record won’t be included on Lupe’s Tetsuo & Youth LP, which is scheduled to impact later this year.
Don’t forget you can catch Ty Dolla $ign hitting the stage alongside Saba, Mick Jenkins and Leather Corduroys at Reggie’s on March 6th for the latest FSD and Red Bull Sound Select show. Tickets are only $3 right now if you RSVP at the Red Bull Sound Select site. Tickets will be $3 at the door the night of the show until 9:30pm. After 9:30p the ticket prices will jump to $10, so be sure to get there early.
Were you expecting this? Well, we can’t say we were either, but with Lu you have to expect the unexpected. Here he takes one of Chicago’s biggest export slang terms, and builds a song around it. The track? He takes Que’s “OG Bobby Johnson” to task. It’s Thot 97 Mentality right here. Listen to him float below.
Lupe took to his Facebook page last night to give everyone a preview of his collaboration with Ty Dolla $ign, which will most likely be included on Lu’s Tetsuo & Youth LP. The track (which may or may not be titled “Next To It”) definitely sounds solid, so hopefully we don’t have to wait long to hear the full record.
Check out a small preview below and remember — Tetsuo & Youth drops later this year.

Kwanzaa, Christmas, Hanukkah — whatever it is you may celebrate — Lupe is giving you a Holiday gift. On Christmas day, Lu has decided to let loose an unreleased joint from his F&L2 sessions, which I think now we can call the most underrated rap album of 2012. That project has only gotten better with time (seriously, go run that back) and this new freebie “Piru Blues” would’ve sounded right at home.
Check it out and share the gift below.
Lupe recently paid a visit to Shade 45 to chop it up with DJ Whoo Kid about a few things including his new album, Kanye West and his track “Chopper” — a collaboration with Buk of Pyschodrama, Billy Blue, Trouble, Glasses Malone, Trae Tha Truth and Fam-Lay. Excited for Testuo & Youth yet? We are.
Check out the full interview above. Thanks to LupEND for the heads up.
Hot Toddy from Power 106 caught up with Lu recently to discuss his role in the health and wellness company higi (Lupe is the creative director) and the importance of what higi has to offer. Later in the interview (the second part is below), Lupe reveals a couple of song titles and other tidbits about Tetsuo and Youth. Their titles just might catch you off guard, but you can count on them throwing you for a loop.
