Also - new Lupe Fiasco album "DROGAS" coming soon. Here's the cover art:

 


Personally I think Lupe should take a break. Tetsuo & Youth was an unexpected success for the guy, whose last few albums have struggled. Tetsuo might not have been a massive commercial success compared to Food & Liquor, but it was kind of a cult favorite. I think he should just sit back and let that album sizzle for a bit. Count himself lucky for the rebound. I can see Tetsuo gaining an 808's & Heartbreak-status if he gives the world more time to digest it.

Making an album about drugs seems like a step in the wrong direction, back into the cookie cutter world of once-a-year rap releases focused on guns and drugs. He should push the artistic shit harder, because let's face it, the guy's done being a RAP heavyweight. He needs to evolve into a *musical* force... again, like Kanye... I know... I say Kanye a lot... But truth be told, Kane's the only motherfucker who's managed to successfully transcend hip-hop and avoid the novelty effect.

Maybe Pharrell too. But shit, Pharrell's kinda lame.
