After giving us a previously unreleased joint earlier today, Lupe doubles up and liberates the official video for the Nikki Jean-assisted “Madonna (And Other Mothers In The Hood)” from Tetsuo & Youth.
Glad to see that this record received the visual treatment, as it was one of my personal favorites from Tetsuo & Youth. Great record, great accompanying video. Watch it above and be sure to grab Tetsuo & Youth on iTunes if you haven’t yet — it’s well worth it.
Produced by 1500 Or Nothin’
Lu liberates a loosie from the stellar Food & Liquor II album. I’m digging this one, the lyrics and the vibe of the track. This is not cutting room floor material. No siree.
Google Atomic Misphilosophy, then listen to “Atomic Misphilosophy.” It’s below now. Thanks to Lu for this one.
New Orleans emcee Dee-1 joined Lupe Fiasco on the Tetsuo & Youth Preview tour in 2013 and this past Monday, Lu decided to return the favor for the Chicago stop on Dee’s first headlining tour.
While at Schubas for the Chicago stop on Dee’s 3’s Up Tour, Lu surprised everyone in attendance by performing and introducing Dee. Missed it? Well, check out the clip above.
A one-minute-and-change snippet of this dropped last summer, and tonight we get “Stellar Light” in its entirety courtesy of Lu’s Soundcloud page. This was the song Lupe was to release in part of his position with the US Men’s Soccer Team/World Cup. Soccer season back? Might could be. Enter the light below.
Last night, Lupe dropped by The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon to perform “Little Death” off his recently released album, Tetsuo & Youth. Nikki Jean was riding shotgun on the feature tip. Lu absolutely killed this one. And not even a “little” bit. Check out the vibes up top.
“Adoration of the Magi”
Lu dropped by REVOLT earlier today to celebrate their one-year anniversary with a live performance of two choice cuts from his recently released Tetsuo & Youth album. he blessed the live studio audience with renditions of “Deliver” and “Adoration of the Magi” which you can now watch above and below.
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.
