25 11 2009

Lupe Fiasco – Enemy of the State: A Love Story

If you’re a Lupe fan like myself, then you were waiting on this joint to drop. Lupe announced earlier this week that he will be dropping the Enemy of the State mixtape on Thanksgiving, but it’s here a day early. Lupe rips joints from Dirty Money’s “Angels”, to Clipse’s street banger “Popular Demand”, and even takes it back with Jay’s “So Ghetto”. Be on the look out for another mixtape from Lupe on Christmas titled Friend of the People, and also his album Lasers expected to be released on December 15th.

Dope or Nope 10/8: New Lupe Fiasco Joint

8 10 2009

Lupe Fiasco – Fire
Lupe Fiasco

Lupe bounces back spittin’ viciously over a Jimi Hendrix sampled guitar riff on “Fire”. Unfortunately the track will not appear on Lupe’s Lasers album, but it’s a lil something to listen to while we wait in the meantime. The current single from Lasers is “Shining Down”, Lupe’s second collaborative effort with Matthew Santos as a single. Lasers is slated to be released December 15th.

Dope or Nope 6/16 – New Lupe!

16 06 2009

Lupe Fiasco feat. Matthew Santos – Shining Down
Lupe is back with what can potentially be his first single off his forthcoming album, Lasers. Lupe hooks up with his frequent hook man Matthew Santos (Superstar, American Terrorist, Streets on Fire), and Soundtrakk comes thru with an ill production, making it definitely worth checking out.

Best News I Heard All Day: The Beginning of the END

22 01 2009

Lupe Fiasco Announces Album Release Date

Lupe made the announcement at an Autralia concert that the first of the three disk LupEND series will be out this June! That’s right, the Everywhere disk will drop in less than 6 months. I’m assuming a first single will be here in a couple of months. Keep your ears open!

Lupe’s Special Announcement…

1 11 2008

For over a week there’s been a rumor that Lupe Fiasco will have an announcement on Halloween. Right when Halloween hit, many people (including myself) waited patiently for the big announcement, and the news is…

LupEND will be a 3-disk album! It’s 3 albums in one and the END in LupEND is an acronym for the disk titles Everywhere, Nowhere, Down Here. I guess that’s what Lu meant when I asked him if it’s his final album and he said “we’ll see” since its a 3 for 1. Peep the video below of his announcement of LupE.N.D.:

I must admit this is risky seeing that some of the greatest hip hop artist (Nas and Jay-z) created double albums and it turned out to be one of their least favorable albums. On the other hand, a real artist takes risks and tries new things. If this is Lupe’s final album I’m sure he will make a dope lasting impression.

Dope or Nope 9/23: New Busta & Lupe Joints!

23 09 2008

Busta Rhymes feat. Ron Browz – Arab Money

The auto-tune has struck again! Busta hooks up with “Ether” producer Rob Browz for his latest single “Arab Money” off his forthcoming album Back On My Bullshit. Maybe this’ll grow on me, but as of right now it’s so-so. I liked “Dont Touch Me” much better than this.

Lupe Fiasco feat. Pharrell, Q-tip & Sarah Green – Paris, Tokyo Remix

Kind of late since The Cool has been out since December, but better late than never! The remix features CRS affiliate Pharrell, Q-Tip, and Lupe’s frequent hook lady, Sarah Green. Enjoy!
