Lupe Fiasco Is Planning to Release Three Albums in 2016
This is some exciting news! Lupe Fiasco recently announced that he plans on dropping not one, not two, but three albums in 2016. In addition, the Chicago rhymer plan to tour North America next year as well.
After being released from his contract with Atlantic Records, Fiasco is set to drop his next LP, Drogas, in the new year. But the 33-year-old rhymer is keeping any further information a secret. After dropping the surprise announcement on Twitter he simply said that he's "not taking any questions at this time." But he did give one "spoiler" -- his forthcoming song, "Mural Jr.," will be straight lyrical fire.
The "Words I Never Said" rapper will also embark on a month-long 17-stop tour dubbed "Tour for the Fans," starting in Seattle on Jan. 13. Afterwards, he'll head to cities across the U.S. including San Francisco, Dallas, Texas, New Orleans, New York and Washington D.C.
Last week, the Food & Liquor creator hinted at the possibility for a sequel to his sophomore album, The Cool for Winter 2017 as well. "The Cool is dead....long live The Cool 2," read the tweet on the eighth anniversary of his sophomore album release date.
And fans are ready to hear new music from Fiasco. "Lupe Fiasco is back," wrote one follower. "Lupe Fiasco is releasing 3 albums next year. Can I get an Amen?!" tweeted another fan.
