Lupe Fiasco's lupEND - on wipeout



I just played some good old Wipeout on my PS.
And look what popped up at the end

Lupe Fiasco 2008 - a preview


As it's the last day of 2007
We will have a look at things that could happen in Lupe-Land 2008.


  • The Tour will start in January
  • He'll probably promote The Cool in Europe
  • a possible Grammy award
  • Some more videos will come out (hopefully Paris, Tokyo)
  • A small summer festival tour
  • Maybe there will be the CRS album...who knows
  • More stuff from "Fall Of Rome"
  • And hopefully late 2008 or early 2009 we'll get the l-u-p END album.

all of this is just speculation (except the tour)
so don't shoot me if it's not happening.

Lupe Fiasco's The Cool chart positions

It's Nr.1 on billboards top Rap Albums
------------
Nr.4 on top R&B and Hip Hop
--------
Nr.15 on the billboard top 200 albums

I think overall it's still a good look for Lupe


Go out and buy The Cool right now.

Official numbers are in.

Lupe sold 143k copies of "The Cool" making him number 15 on this weeks billboard top200 album charts.

now you know.

Young Buck turns Superstar into Ghetto Superstar


Young Buck lays some decent rhymes over the Superstar instrumental...but the hook is so fucked up on this version of the track.
He should have kept the original one.

Lupe Fiasco's l-u-p-END---The wait begins

Now after The Cool has dropped....

We can start to wait for lupEND to be released.

I think we'll get the album sometime around January 2009.

I don't think that the record will be out next year...because I hope that we'll get the CRS projekt first.

Lupe Fiasco The Cool sales prediction


Looks like Lupe will sell around 160k in the first week.
Doesn't seem like he'll go to the top of the charts with that.

So everyone out there go to the store
and buy your copy of "The Cool" now!

Lupe Fiasco Is Legend!


Paris Tokyo - The Next Single



From what I've heard "Paris Tokyo" is gonna be the next single from Lupe.
I mean they call me "The Future Blogger" for a reason ;-)

So now the question is - How is the video gonna look like?

I really hope that we get a futuristic kinda video that is filmed on locations in Tokyo and Paris.

I have red strobe light, great panorama shots of Tokyo and an airplane on my mind when I think of a possible video for the song. And the story could include Lupe following a girl through those cities...or it could be the other way around...with the girl chasing Lupe ;-)

We'll find out soon I guess.

Old...I know but the crowd is awesome
and Lupe is totally in the zone..

People who hate "The Cool"

I saw some people stating that they are dissapointed of "The Cool".
I don't understand those people to be honest.

I mean what is there that you can't like about "The Cool"?

I think the best thing is to keep telling those people that they aren't intelligent enough to catch the concept.

Lupe already found the right words for those people:

"Bishop G, they told me I should come down cousin, but I flatly refuse I ain't dumb down nothing"

Lupe Fiasco says: M&M's are yellow


This is nothing new...Lupe only eats yellow M&M'S

So I went out and got a bag of M&M's and guess how many
yellow ones are in one bag? You can count yourself....



So if you don't want to buy 5 bags of M&M's to get a full bowl
of yellow ones you can customize your own M&M's right HERE


but if you look at the price...hmm...they should start
producing bags with individual colors.

A Word For Lupe Fiasco

This is our word: Amajanese

It describes the mix of American and Japanese culture.
And we thought that there's no one else who could
represent that better than Lupe Fiasco.

So Lupe if you actually read this....think about using it
on your next album lupEND.

It would be the coolest thing ever for us.

Thanks

Introduction



Hello world, how are you?

I'm new to this whole blogging thing and I don't really
know what to write in a first entry.

I basically want to document Lupe's way from The Cool
to LupEND and maybe beyond to give everyone a place where they
can find all that they need to know about him and his crew.

You are welcome to join me on that ride.
