Last night, Lupe Fiasco instigated a Twitter beef with Childish Gambino, which surprised a lot of people. Since 2011, hip hop has grown accustomed to Lupe Fiasco promoting his singles during this time of the year. There is so much that has changed since his forced hiatus from 2007-2011.
When Lupe Fiasco finally was able to release Lasers in 2011, he promised he would return with a new album each year. During the promotional run for Food & Liquor 2, comments about Chief Keef led to a Twitter beef and Lupe Fiasco threatened to retire from the game. He later decided to stay and keep making music.
Lupe Fiasco remained silent since the release of his last album, but he is in the midst of getting himself back going. Tetsuo and Youth is the fifth studio album from Lupe Fiasco, due later this year. The first single, according to Lupe’s website, is due to be released in September.
