lupe fiasco

"Getting beat up for telling the truth is not how I plan on spending the rest of life."

Lupe Fiasco has a proposition for those fans who don’t like his 2011 third studio album Lasers. Taking to Instagram yesterday (August 31), Lupe Fiasco offered to destroy physical copies of the album “with an actual laser.” Any takers? If so, the destruction is set to take place on New Year’s Day, 2016, but, don’t […]

Say it ain’t so?! Hip-hop aficionados practically fainted after Lupe Fiasco accepted Yasiin Bey’s (Mos Def) challenge to battle anyone in the rap circuit. Sadly, it appears that Yasiin has reneged on his challenge and will not battle Lupe Fiasco in what many thought would have been a heavyweight battle between the lyrical titans. During […]

  It seems that this Meek Mill and Drake beef has everyone in the competitive spirit. With 2015 showcasing reinvigorated artists ravenously killing tracks with hopes of pushing their peers, the art of rhyming appears to be back in full-effect. Veteran, Yasiin Bey, – formerly known as Mos Def – decided to keep the competitive […]

If this isn’t the ultimate summer jam, we don’t know what is. Grammy award-winning artist Lupe Fiasco, who recently weighed in on ghostwriting in hip-hop in regards to the Drake vs. Meek Mill “incident,” just released his “LAW (LoveAllWays)” track on Soundcloud, almost two years after he first performed the song on stage. This fresh beat […]

With most rappers deciding to poke fun at the Meek Mill and Drake situation, Lupe Fiasco decided to use the moment as a chance to drop some knowledge. Known to shy away from the media, Fiasco penned an open letter…on Instagram. In the post, Lupe speaks about how ghostwriting of sorts is nothing new and […]

The Sound

There’s been rappers who immediately spoke out against the Charleston’s Emanuel A.M.E. Church tragedy. Nas came out and said the racist motivation that caused the tragedy is “rotting America.” On Sunday, Fiasco also spoke his mind in a three-part letter posted on Instagram. Accompanied by pictures of the killer Dylann Roof, the posts detail the many ways white […]

Throughout his career, Lupe Fiasco has never been one to keep quiet when it comes to speaking out against the racial inequality felt throughout the African-American community. Yesterday (April 30), the Chicago native released the music video for his “It Just Might Be Okay” record, off his 2006 debut album, Food & Liquor. The visuals, […]

News

One thing has remained consistent from Lupe Fiasco’s 10-year trip from hip-hop’s critical darling to the over-30 outsider: His verses have always remained dense (yes, including some off Lasers). Fiasco may have claimed he was cool with falling out of relevance, but that didn’t mean he was going to completely dumb it down. A Lupe […]

Lupe Fiasco arguably has never made a great album. He nearly used up the goodwill he built up during his Revenge of the Nerds and protégé phase with his needlessly crass tweets, which was even more infuriating because he masked them in the guise of meaningful social commentary. He jousted with tweeters over his Iggy Azalea […]

Chicago rapper Lupe Fiasco is in the midst of a press run to promote his upcoming album, Tetsuo And Youth, which is scheduled for a January 20 release. While he’s been avoiding Twitter, Lupe recently talked to Thomas Golianopoulos for Billboard.com about his relevancy, his relationship wit Atlantic, and choosing to weigh in on Iggy […]
