Lupe Fiasco Announces Three Full Album Releases in 2016, Not 'The Cool 2'
Lupe Fiasco tweeted over the weekend that he would be releasing three full albums in 2016. Lupe alluded to the first project being titled Drogas and would feature a lyric heavy song called "Mural Jr." A few weeks ago, Lupe Instagramed an image of Pope Francis alongside the word "Drogas." Lupe released his last album in the Spring of 2015 titled Tetsuo & Youth. Lupe also released a six song EP in August 2015 titled Pharaoh Height. None of the three releases next year will be the highly anticipated follow-up to the his second studio album The Cool (Grammy nominated, Best Rap Album 2009), a concept album featuring a character from his debut project Food & Liquor. Fans and the hip-hop community have been calling for the concept follow-up for several years. When tweeting about The Cool's 8-year anniversary, he noted it would not come out until the winter of 2017.
Shortly after, Lupe also announced a 17-date national tour. Currently there are no scheduled Chicago dates. Head over to LupeFiasco.com/Tour for more information.
