Lupe Fiasco's Grammy Predictions [Suggestions]



Over the past few weeks MTV News asked artists who they think will win big at this year's Grammys.

In the realm of hip-hop, Lupe suggested Mos Def had the best album of the year (he's up for two Grammys, including Best Rap Album) and that Drake should be up for Best New Artist (he only received a nod for Best Rap Solo Performance).

"I think he's deserving of it," Lupe said of Drake. "As many accolades as he can accumulate, pre-album, is a phenomenal task. I think that should be rewarded. He has the potential to do great things, not good or mediocre, but great things."

Fore more predictions check MTV.com


- The 52nd Annual GRAMMY Awards will be held on Sunday, Jan. 31st at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.

They already removed the pre-order button from the site but anyways...Don't waste your money on this (in case they still sell it), instead you should go and buy I'm Beamin when it's up on iTunes tomorrow or get another copy of The Cool or F&L. Or donate a couple more bucks to Music For Relief.

What we have here is a compilation of unreleased music, presented by Music For Relief that was put together to aid the Haitian people.

As we reported yesterday, Lupe & Kenna teamed up with Mike Shinoda for the project and created the track "Resurrection." Check it in the player above!


Mike Shinoda: "On January 12, a magnitude 7.0 earthquake struck Haiti. Hundreds of thousands are feared dead, many of whom are children. Millions more are in need of medical attention, shelter, clothes and food just to make it through the days ahead.

It will take years to rebuild homes and communities. My Linkin Park bandmates and I are deeply saddened by the situation and–with the help of an amazing list of talented artists all working in partnership with Music for Relief–want to aid the Haitian people.

Music for Relief has brought together an incredible album of artists who have all generously donated original songs to support the Haiti relief effort.

Artists include: ALANIS MORISSETTE, THE ALL-AMERICAN REJECTS, DAVE MATTHEWS BAND, ENRIQUE IGLESIAS, HOOBASTANK, KENNA, LINKIN PARK, LUPE FIASCO, PETER GABRIEL AND SLASH."

DOWNLOAD. LISTEN. DONATE. SPREAD THE WORD. BRING HOPE.

Mars talks about working with Lupe Fiasco and others



In an interview with Tim “Styles” Sanchez from WeTheWest.com Mars from 1500 or Nothin talked about his solo projects, 1500 or Nothin, future plans and working with Lupe, The Game, T.I. and others. Here's a little excerpt:


Styles: You guys have worked with Just Blaze and had big songs on Jay-Z's album and The Game's album with him. Tell us about those experiences.

Mars: Just Blaze was in Los Angeles and initially what had happened was we were working on The Game's album. I don't know if Just Blaze knew if the Show Me What You Got beat was going to be for Jay-Z's album – I think we were just creating.

We were working on Detox on Game's album. He had the drum beat and the sample and we added all of the instruments in. We lost our minds and went crazy on that song. Just Blaze is like our big brother. He's been our link to some of the greatest artists.


Styles: I also saw video clips of you guys playing backup for Lupe Fiasco.

Mars: We were on tour with Lupe for like 2 years off and on. We traveled all over the states and then went overseas. I had the time of my life. I didn't realize how high I was jumping on stage until I saw the youtube clips that you are referring to. The fans always see you perform but you never really see yourself.


Styles: How did you initially hook up with Lupe?

Mars: He was working on his album and was looking for tracks. His manager at the time was up on us and he hooked us all up together. He told Lupe that we were a band as well as music producers. Lupe took us out and gave us a chance and we all grew together.


Styles: Back to 1500. What have you guys been working on as of late?

Mars: We've been working with The Game on his new R.E.D. album. Of course we did some stuff with Lupe Fiasco for his new album.

We also did several joints for Bone Thugs N Harmony as well as their single. I just finished my own mixtape Mars Attacks which is out now. The group has been working on the 1500 Or Nothin' album as well...

Lupe Fiasco lends his voice to a Robot for Jack Splash's upcoming animated short film



A while ago we already heard about Jack Splash's upcoming animated short film in which Lupe lends his voice to one of the characters.

XXLmag.com reported that Lupe would voice Baatin from Slum Village in this film, turns out that that's not exactly how it is. Jack Splash revealed some more details about the film in an interview with Verbicide Mag:

Verbicide Mag: What’s up with the Jack Splash Technology and Love Might Save Us All… short animation we’ve been hearing about? Who is it produced by? What’s the style of it? When will be start seeing signs of it on the internet?

Jack: I’m just putting the finishing touches on it now. It is mini-movie that I made that accompanies this album. I’m really particular about what type of visual art I like, so it took me a while to find someone with the style I really liked.

I wanted it to be this weird mixture of Dr. Seuss meets Salvador Dali with a little knowledge sprinkled in like Basquiat. I finally found these really cool animators who lived in South Africa who have a really cool and psychedelic style, so we met up in New York and set everything into motion.

It was an expensive and time-intensive endeavor, but it’s important to me to give people something special with my art. Don’t believe the hype that all these major corporate entities keep trying to force feed us about how “nobody buys music” anymore….that’s bullshit! People still buy art when it’s good. They just don’t buy the bullshit!

The movie stars Cee-Lo as the narrator and is based around this little boy with a million questions about the world and this weird funky robot who comes down in a butterfly spaceship and kind of becomes his interplanetary guru.

It was inspired by my friendship with Baatin (from Slum Village), who was an amazing person and had such a bright spirit. Lupe Fiasco plays the voice of the robot and Janelle Monae plays the voice of the child. I’m really excited about it. It should be out very soon!
