As we reported on recently, Lupe Fiasco has been named the U.S. Men's National Soccer Team's music director. In addition to promoting his Tetsuo & Youth single "Mission" in this position, he'll also be curating the game playlists, and he's created the U.S.
A few days ago Lupe dropped off a new record featuring Ty Dolla $ign, "Next To It," off his forthcoming album Tetsuo & Youth. The song sits in stark contrast to Lupe's last release, the cancer-awareness and thought-provoking record "Mission", as this is Lupe on his ignant tip, spitting about money and hoes.
Ab-Soul is keeping the anticipation for These Days...high, with the release of several leaks and most recently, the jam-packed tracklist. The last leak we received was the album's title track, and now Soulo follows up with "World Runners" featuring Lupe Fiasco and Nikki Jean.
While he didn't actually release an album last year, Kendrick Lamar managed to put the rap game in a stir. "Control" kept the rapper in the conversation throughout 2013, but in the new year, the rapper has been a little more low-key.
With its first official single finally seeing the light of day, Lupe Fiasco's Tetsuo & Youth is now in full-on pre-release season, with the rapper delivering interviews about the project to whip us into a frenzy of anticipation.
Rapper, Lyricist, Rhymesayer. All labels for one person: the MC. The MC not only has many different aliases but comes with many different personalities: the gangster, the conscious individual, the partygoer, the player, the everyperson.
To promote his new single “Mission”, Lupe Fiasco decided to stop by The Hot 97 Morning Show Tuesday Morning and chat it up with Ebro, Peter Rosenberg, and Laura Stylez. During the lengthy conversation, Lupe Fiasco had a lot of time to speak his mind, and that he did.
