Lupe Fiasco talks new Mixtape & Soundclash Album


Marian Tuin of Examiner.com talked to Lupe during his current tour and he revealed what he plans to do in the near future.

“Me and my partner Scott started a dj collective called Soundclash so we’re working on that album right now and hopefully we’ll have a single out by Halloween and will try and push an album out around that and tour and all that.

There’s a Lupe Fiasco mixtape that’s coming which hopefully we’ll have out before the end of the year and that will hopefully lead up to the next Lupe Fiasco album. And that’s really it, just more touring, touring, touring and music, music, music, music.”

Lupe also talked about the music he likes right now and mentioned the following:

"When it comes back to hip hop I still like Nas and Mos Def and even the newer guys like Kendrick Lamar and Kid Cudi who can definitely kind of catch my ear and keep my edge sharp I guess.”

  1. I'm sorry, but by the end of the year? If you announce a mixtape on a monday, it should be out by Saturday. End the year? Come on, now.

  3. What takes him so long is he doesn't like to put out garbage songs. Listen to Enemy of the State mixtape and tell which song he didn't go hard on!

  5. Would you rather listen to Sorry 4 Tha Wait (3 days) or Enemy of the State (Probably a month)? Plus, Lu is busy. He's touring nonstop while working on F&L2, Friend of the People, and this new album he's talking about.

  7. I love how hes always making new bands and acting like hes all busy making new music when in reality he doesnt do shit. Japanese cartoon album was suppose to come out this summer. We were suppose to get a mixtape and not one but TWO Lupe Fiasco albums by the end of the year. But so far we have nothing! And now hes planning on starting another band? How bout you just focus on what you already promised lupe..cuz I dont expect you to follow through with any of this shit either.
    Dude is lazy as fuck but to be fair ...I get it. I would be too if I was rich and famous. I mean why work so hard when you've already made it. Another thing is that so much is expected of him that I think it just makes him fold under pressure. All of his fans expect nothing but greatness and its prly just too much for him to handle.

  11. And that settles it!

    FOTP will not come out this year I guarantee it!

    How do I know about this? Because Lupe sounds unsure of himself when talking about FOTP.

    ""There’s a Lupe Fiasco mixtape that’s coming which hopefully we’ll have out before the end of the year""

    "that’s coming which hopefully" You see how he doesn't give any indication about working on it or a more solid release time? This is EXACTLY how sound when ever mentioning F&L2:TGARA. "Hopefully F&L2 will come out before the end of the year" "God willing, F&L2 will come out before next year" ect. And that it's near the end of the year we KNOW FOR SURE that F&L 2 is coming out next year. Same will be for FOTP. Before the end of November I expect Lupe say that FOTP will come out the beginning of next year.

    Expect to hear the Soundslash DJ album before FOTP as Lu just stated that he's working on it right NOW. While FOTP will be "coming which hopefully" LOL.

  12. All these people getting angry because their favorite artist isn't making songs for them, shut up

  13. I don't think all these people understand that making music takes inspiration. You can't just turn it on and off. Everybody expects classic Lupe material every time he puts out a track. Well, I'm sorry but creative people can't just do that whenever they feel like it and still come out with a quality product. I think Lupe makes all these different groups because he's a real artist. He's probably losing interest in rapping and needs other outlets like Japanese Cartoon, his DJ-ing, and his poetry to keep him inspired. You'll get your music eventually guys, just be patient. If he's lost your interest by then and is no longer relevant, thats fine, the true Lupe Fiasco fans will still be around to hear it.

  14. Correct me if I'm wrong, but FOTP should've been ready a long time ago. I mean, he cancelled it only hours before it came out. I think its really all about timing. I'm gonna be patient F&L II, with Go To Sleep and the intro that's out on youtube, its got the makings of an absolute classic. Til then, I'm gonna happily bump Kendrick and J Cole, and the Nas album that's coming out soon!

  15. Honestly i LOVE Lu but he's biting off more than he can chew, he's touring, while making music, putting an album by soundclash, making more music, trying to finish up FOTP, & F&L2, I mean seriously lupe is doin too much...

  18. Lupe has said in many interviews that he is never 100% happy with the material he puts out. He always feels that there is something missing. So if he says an album is "hopefully" coming out, it's because he actually wants it to be good. Listen to his earlier mixtapes. Before F&L came out and he signed with Atlantic, he said the same thing (God willing, album almost done, etc.) Can't blame a rapper for being a perfectionist. Ex: Dr. Dre and Detox
