New Music: Lupe Fiasco - American Terrorist pt.2 (Superheroes)

After the twitter exchange earlier, Lu signed off, announcing his retirement by saying:

This album will probably be my last...its been a pleasure to have all my fans provide so much love and inspiration for me and my family but my heart is broken and I see no comfort further along this path only more pain.

I cannot participate any longer in this... My first true love was literature so I will return to that...Lupe Fiasco ends here...

He then released an unfinished version of American Terrorist pt.2, produced by Simonsayz and TheFatRat.

  2. I dont think Lupe will retire. Lets hope not. I wonder if this is the actual "American Terrorist pt 2" he was planning on releasing as the first single off "Skulls". If so then damn thats not a good sign. =/

    WE LOVE YOU LUPE!

  3. American Terrorist wasn't going to be on Skulls, it was set for F&L II Pt. 2 as a single. He mentioned this in an interview.

  17. If all this is true and Lupe does end up retiring, i will say this, I am proud to have listened to your music. You have been an inspiration and have showed me a new way at looking at things. I will ALWAYS listen to your music no matter what. Thank you for all you have done. God Bless and good luck in what ever else you decide to pursue in the future <3

  18. He's not gonna retire. He's the Michael Jordan of hip hop.

  19. Michael Jordan in the sense he's gonna quit for a year or two, play baseball for the white sox, realize he's terrible and then he'll be back.

  20. Lupe Fiasco don't retire. You've been my favorite rapper for years and if you retire who will be here for balance in this corrupted society of hip hop. This is crazy but the people really do need you.

    P.S Chief Keef ain't shit

  21. may god bless lupe for forever changing my life. i have been chamged since i came across his music

  22. sensitive ok. but to be very sensitive is not ok. a journalist criticized bitch bad and lupe got so mad... and forgot about all the good reviews he got about the song so who cares about one journalist.. and now he wants to quit just because Keef said stupid things about lupe.. who cares about Keef and is opinion about lupe ANYWAY. those ppl if they diss lupe they will become more famous and he is giving them this opportunity by responding to them

    ReplyDelete
  23. YES! Best decision he can make, if he goes through with it. Hate it or love it, music ain't for Muslims.

  24. If he out, other than Aesop Rock nothing is keeping me listening to Hip Hop so soon as Lupe leave I'm done with this genre. I had a good run with it, but if Chief Queef, Tyga, 2chains and Big Sean is our future it doesn't look bright at all

    ReplyDelete
  25. This announcement really just ruins my morning!!!! Argh! Love you Lu, please stay for your real fans.. Retiring for stupid ppl who said bad things abt you isn't worth it.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Chief Keef's "crew" or whatever kills some dude over bullshit, Lupe gets upset about it because it's in his hometown and this silly nigga calls Lupe out and he's not allowed to be "sensitive" or express himself? Ya'll realize Lupe has built his career on trying to bring the ghetto up. Educate dumbass kids like Chief Keef that there's a better way. I think Lu is allowed to be a bit "sensitive" on this matter; It's his home. It's his life.

    Some of ya'll need to think before you comment. Lupe isn't going to retire. He already stated he's done with ATLANTIC after this. He'll still be releasing things, be it indy, his own record label or otherwise.

  27. Wasalu- I hope that you go forth and find the deep inner peace and happiness that you so greatly deserve.

  28. Hip hop is dead anyway. He might as well quit. All the shit on the radio. i.e the Lil Waynes, Nickis, 2 Chainz , etc Hip hop has sold out to Mainstream. All I hear is violence and profanity , and I see nudity. It aint worth it anymore.

    Am also jus about done with hip hop.

  29. "Lupe out and he's not allowed to be "sensitive" or express himself? Ya'll realize Lupe has built his career on trying to bring the ghetto up.

    that's why he needs to stay for those ppl.. look at the comments here and on twitter.everyone says lupe u changed our life ... so how can he ignore these ppl and make such a decision over one comment from someone like Keef..


    and what's with this comment seriously!
    "YES! Best decision he can make, if he goes through with it. Hate it or love it, music ain't for Muslims."

    as a muslim I am soo proud of lupe fiasco ... u know what he really needs to quit to get rid of such comments I take back what i said

  30. "you racist bastard, this is 2012... music is universal."

    Really, name calling?! It can be as universal as it can get. I'm just saying it's not allowed in Islam, and you can tell how true this just by the crazy things Lu has been complaining about.

    It's very difficult to be a practicing Muslim, and be involved with the music industry and lifestyle.

    ReplyDelete
  31. ^I'm proud of him too!!

    You're Muslim, and you probably can imagine how hard it would be to live that kind of lifestyle and still uphold your values.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Let's start a petition to get Lupe Fiasco not to retire he's just about to break big time he's come too far to retire. If we start a petition maybe he would see how much his fans NEED (not want) him and his music in this culture.

    ReplyDelete
  33. let's wait until tomorrow to see he might change his mind..

    "You're Muslim, and you probably can imagine how hard it "

    he has a msg and what he presents is needed ..

  34. Lupe don't retire. You changed my whole entire perspective on Hip-Hop and our society.

    ReplyDelete
  35. As long as he drops more to the cool story. If the next one is as good as the last, then he'll truly be one of the greats, especially in terms of concept writing and poetic lyrics. I would be satisfied with a retirement after that.

    ReplyDelete
  36. I hope Lu does change his mind his music opened my eyes to problems I never knew..

    ReplyDelete
  37. Chief keef say his account was hacked, so we'll see his response tomorrow and this isn't the first time Lupe retired.

  39. YO if Lupe retires i'm done with Hip-hop/Rap. Lupe changed my life through his metaphors. Lupe you will always be my fav rapper, PLEASE stay in the game. Now that Kanye sold out the game need you more then ever.

  40. We should do a rally and try to get Lupe to stay in the game. We did it once and Atlantic release Lazers, maybe this time we can get lu to stay.

  41. Lupe has never officially retired before. I don't know where that came from. Anyway I'm starting to understand why Lupe might be retiring because of Chief Keef. Keef's crew was just recently "supposedly" involved in the death of a local Chicago rapper named JoJo. They even supposedly posted a youtube video about their plans of killing said rapper. JoJo's brother is now receiving death threats. To make things worse Chief Keef was laughing about JoJo's death on his twitter page.

    I don't think Lupe wants to put his family at risk getting involved with this potentially dangerous and naive kid. Now I'm starting to understand why Lu kept saying in recent interviews how much Keef scares him. SMH at this nonsense.

    Here's the source of the JoJo killing Keef's crew was involved in:

    Are you serious? He isn't quitting because of chief keef. He is quitting because no matter how much positive energy he puts out, people attack him & tear him down like he is the villain and he can't take it no more.
    Plus he sees that no matter how much he wants to change things in Chicago nothing is positive is happening in that city and its getting worse, and not just in the Chi but in all of the ghettos of america....he feels helpless and powerless because he can't change things.

    Also he has the media, his own record company and his own flaky ass fans attacking him and its just too much to bare. Being in the industry is too much on him and he wants out. That's not being sensitive that's being human and reaching your limits of how much hate and ignorance you can take.

  45. If he continues putting out music like he says he will independently, we have nothing to fear. His content, sound and style will never fade.

    But this is one of the saddest nights of my life if this is indeed the end of Lupe.

    Not many 21 year olds have a role model. Sept. 22 concert will be very emotional for me

  49. I've been following everything while it was transpiring and the timing of the release of this song adds so much meaning and depth to it. I've already listened to it 20+ times and it's beautiful.

    The song speaks to Lu's go-to concept: contradictions. "You are truly the hero and the villain." Unfortunately I think his never ending tug-a-war of trying to uplift a sinking generation became to daunting when Keef and his crew threatened him, Lu responded but couldn't get through (just weeks after he shed tears for them).

    He seemed like he was enjoying his time inTurkey and Europe so I wouldn't mind if he gets back to his exploring ways, moves past this, and goes to some more exotic destinations 'til he think he's satisfied.

    Until then, peace and much love to Wasalu.


    And LDVK thanks for setting up the platform for us to express ourselves through these comments over the years.

  50. Jus seem like when his ego hurt he does the most. Some blogger writes a bad review n its boycott time. Some 16 year old rapper said he gon slap the dreads off him n now he bout to quit rappin. Nothin wrong with being sensitive but he "overly sensitive" just stop wit the melodrama. A 30 somethin year old should have a better way of handlin his emotions n problems than to be havin breakdowns on twitter. promote yo album n keep it movin. What does he have to prove to chief or that blogger anyway by responding to them?

  51. I'm not one to have many role models; but you Lupe are my role model. Please do not quit, you are the only thing that is good with modern rap. Please Don't do this.

  52. Ah...Superheroes and Villians.
    We all are both.
    Lupe become a hero and not a villian.
    Endure some more of this pain.
    Release those 2 more albums and then you can rest.
    Even if you leave though...

    Lupe, Thank You.

  53. So I've been going through these comments and all I see are some selfish ass "fans'. Let the man retire. Yeah he's an inspiration and my favorite rapper also, but you can't expect him to be Superman. I too feel like Lu should continue on his metaphorical fight, but not to the point where we get another Beautiful Lasers. Sometimes enough is enough, maybe if we're lucky, Lupe will finish his contract with Atlantic and we'll get more music, if not oh well he doesn't owe us anything.

    ReplyDelete
  54. If it's not just a publicity stunt (we know Lu isn't adverse to 'raw marketing'), then peace to Lupe for five great mixtapes and 2 great albums.
    I hope he finds joy in writing literature and columns and i'll still follow his work.

    If it's just a publicity stunt, well whatever, bring on TGARA Pt.2 and Skulls.

    ReplyDelete
  55. For those people that think lupe is retiring just because of cheef keef are stupid.

    This has been an acculmination of events and I think this cheef keef incident tipped him over the edge. Keef laughed at the fact a fellow rapper died in Chicago, I think thats where it hit lupe so much. This is just weeks after Lupe broke down talking about how bad the hood was in Chicago.

    Also, the boycott incident. If some of you actually read into it, Lupe did not all the sudden decide to boycott a magazine because they wrote a bad review. They attacked lupe's character and tried to seem like what he was doing was fake. He said it himself, its okay to give a bad review to the music, but don't attack his character when all he has been doing is trying to be positive in hip hop.

    Though none of us will fully understand what its like to be in Lupe's shoes, I can see why he would want to retire. All of us just want to keep him around for our selfish reasons, but I really think this is it for Lupe.

  56. Man.... as a muslim this gives me more of a reason to give up music all together, loved all of it thanks to lupemperor, definitely a legend..onto deleting all my music collection..thanks Sean.

    ReplyDelete
  57. I don't understand whats happening.. :(

    As a Muslim though, Lupe has been a real, REAL legend to me in terms of music. He is a genius, gifted. I consider his talent on par with Dante.

    When that man picks up a pen, no one knows whats gonna happen.

    If he is retiring after FAL2, I don't know what to say. What happened to part two and Skulls...? I won't be disappointed if he leaves after this though. He has done enough, no one can take away his body of work: genius.

    You deserve a rest Lupe :)

    ReplyDelete
  58. Anyway about the song....Lupe needs to start flowing again. Straight up. This and bitch bad had good lyrics, but the great thing about Lupe has always been he can flow his ass off while having great lyrics.

    ReplyDelete
  59. Even though he probably won't have have retired, he couldn't have left with a more fitting song; the lyrics about "not keeping them safe from danger, you're keeping danger safe" shows how Lupe feels he is no longer a positive influence; he is a part of a dangerous and destructive influence: hip-hop.

    ReplyDelete
  60. LaSean...

    unfortunately he is quitting because of what Keef said. and it was emotional. cuz his decision was to say in the music business singing as indi. when u suddenly take ur twitter while u r on a trip and say i am out. it's just emotional.

    he might feel helpless but he did make a change. and a lot of ppl changed their attitude toward life because of him. there are people who even converted to Islam ... i am not saying converting to islam what will make u better and its the positive change NO. but i am saying look at his powerful influence on ppl to the extent that they even chose to follow the religion he is practicing.

  61. Man I’m upset with the fact there is a whole Lupe CD I will not hear and that I feel there is not enough Lupe material out there. But he has tried to push a message and it does seem like the younger generation just isn’t getting it. AT pt. 2 makes perfect sense after I have had it on repeat for likes 50 times. I love the super hero reference and using their point of view works perfectly. Not the way I expected his outro from the game to be but at least we get something. Another thing that worries me is the future as we know it and how Thanatos was mentioned.

  63. So sad that I'll probably never see Lu perform live, that's been my wish for 5 years but he never comes close to Croatia. I'd travel states to attend.

    Wasalu, you introduced me to the world of hip-hop, and now you're leaving us in all that trash. It's time for me to listen more to other genres..

    ReplyDelete
  64. The song is PURE fire though... I mean, mashallah x1000

    I've been blasting it all day. And this morning it made me so sad, my eyes teared up. It just has a big affect on me...

    "I do possess the power to revive you. But if I did that, I'd probably have to fight you. Coz you truly are the hero and the villain... The world stood froze, hearing a truth so chilling."

    That part kills me :')

  65. Feels like i'm losing a brother. I don't know what to say to this guy, when some one changes your lives so much and decides to just hide because of some words said..

    but like many of you said, we may be selfish. He's been around for years and we'll always have his words and we'll look to the sky to hope for the Dark Knight to rise once again!

    @LDVK , @Rhymestyle, @_LadyLasers_, and the other many contributors to this blog you guys are family for years, thanks for everything that you've done for us!

  66. Lu has vision to see what will happen if he continues on. He has a lot of people that got his back. He doesn't want people to react over nonsense. He's afraid of what can happen.

    ReplyDelete
  67. Man, those tweets were incredibly touching. I'd like to think I can tell when someone is crying crocodile tears, and I honestly felt the sincerity in every last word he tweeted. They sound like the words of a man defeated. A man who has given, and given, and given once more, all to be ridiculed. We chastise our heroes sometimes, neglecting the reality that they too are just humans.

    The man's first two albums were fire and I honestly hadn't been a HUGE music head before I got really into Lupe in '06. I mean sure I was only 16 back then, but still, my discovery of Lupe's music back then not only educated me in ways other mediums couldn't get through to me, his art encouraged me to look into other "conscious" artists that challenged me, that actually had something to say.

    I'll be the first to admit that I think the majority of Lupe's work has been disappointingly sub-par by his lofty standards. I so wanted him to revert back to "OLD" Lupe. But I realise how taxing that must be on a man who just gives, gives and gives, with honesty and integrity that you'll be pressed to find in an ever diluting mainstream industry.

    I'm not even mad a chief keef. He's a kid. A stupid, ignorant, tragic kid, but a kid nonetheless. I blame - and I know this grievance has been cried a million times and again - but i really do blame these record label execs that sign kids like this. He honestly lacks even a mere ounce of talent yet is given millions and pushed into the limelight to represent a culture that has been driven to the ground and sullied by "big wigs" who hated a artform cultivated by minorities having a positive and constructive social influence for our people and whoever else it reached.

    It's 2am here in Australia and I'm sorry if I'm rambling or sounding mellow-dramatic, but honestly I thank you endlessly Wasalu for the music you have given us, the wisdom you have imparted and the blood, sweat, tears you have invested in proliferating as much peace and love as possible every where you went.

    I hope this isn't the end of the road for you musically, but if it is, THANK YOU for your work and best of luck with your literature. Reflections of a window washer to top the times bestseller list, inshallah!

    Salam brother.

  69. And just one more thing....with all due respect to everyone, he IS NOT retiring because of keef. That's proposterous. I mean, I don't know the man personally but the last 3 yeasr have been hell on the man. You may say he's rich, he's famous..how hard could he really have it? Everybody gets down and sometimes, wealth, and fame and the limelight only amplifies depression. When you're feeling despondent, the last thing youw ant is to be in positions of high visibility...however unhealthy it might be, you want to hide, be alone, and he's been putting on a brave face for ages.

    Again, Keef isn't what is making him retire...it's the straw that broke the camels back if anything!

    I mean, really? who would retire solely off of the back of a few words from a person like this:

  70. Being from Chicago I understand exactly why Lupe Fiasco wants to retire. He gives his heart and soul on every track for a bunch of people that really don't give a flying fuck about him. All niggas want to hear is money, drugs, hoes, clothes and killing. Chief Keef didn't make Lupe retire, he doesn't see a change in black communities and he feels that he's WE ARE A LOST RACE. Why speak if no one listens? - @Gibron_Lastname

  71. So I've been listening to AT2 some more. Does anyone else feel like he just recorded this song. I mean when you compare what just happened to him in real life with the lyrics, It sounds like he did this yesterday.

  73. I think people are going crazy right now... Maybe you just misinterpreted?

    FAL2 to drop in just less that 3 weeks.
    He said part 2 is 85% done.

    So I'm expecting at least that before retirement... Maybe he just won't do Skulls then?

    Also, Lupe has been mentioning his desire to retire since the mixtape scene... LupEND was supposed to be the original retirement scheme.

    But now (coz of suckass atlantic), we've got a 2 part album and then Skulls.

    ReplyDelete
  74. The song probably was recorded yesterday. Remember this is the same guy that made "Enemy of the State" and "Friend of the People" mixtapes the night before both dropped respectively.

  75. ^^^ this right here! Which is exactly why when he's finally making what he's always wanted to do more of a reality for those who aren't taking him serious ppl are crying and breaking down but for what? It's ALWAYS been like this.. Lu gon head an retire no one appreciates you anyways

    ReplyDelete
  76. As I'm listening to AT2 and reading the tweets. I feel like crying because Lupe is my favorite ARTIST of all time! This is Lupe's decision and one that we must all accept! Good luck to him. I just wish I went to see him live :(

  77. Fnl2 pt 2 is done skulls js 85% done. He'll proubly stick to his original plan and retire after that

    ReplyDelete
  80. Lupe please stop focusing on the negative! Btw who is chief keef?

    ReplyDelete
  81. As much as I hope he doesn't retire (as selfish as it sounds), I'm beginning to understand why he feels the way he does. And I'm okay with that.

    This song seems fitting for the current situation. To me, Lupe himself, is the superhero in American Terrorist Pt. 2. He is the one that is trying to save his city. He is the one trying to save his people. With all the positivity Lu spreads with his volunteering, his charity, his music, his activism, etc., there is still so many things Lu can't fix. At the end of the first verse:
    "Losing all this energy from finding out
    The world is filled with ills, ever so close to timing out"
    It's a battle I believe he felt deep in his heart he could change, but now he realizes he might have dreamed too big.

    Wasalu, if this is indeed the last album from you, I am so grateful to have experienced your music, your storytelling, and your art. I wish your positivity flourished throughout the music industry (especially hip-hop since it gets a bad rap, no pun intended) to influence other artists and even record executives to turn away from negativity.

    I will definitely buy copies of Food & Liquor 2 Part 1. 19 days and counting. I look forward to your future in literature if that is indeed your next plan, if not, bring on Food & Liquor 2 Part 2 and then Skulls.

  82. Dear Mr. Jaco,

    I'm not sure if you're ever even going to read this, but I after reading what has been transpiring the last few days I just wanted to make a few comments. The work that you have done as Lupe Fiasco has truly been inspirational to me, as I'm sure it has been to many. The third verse from Lasers changed the way I viewed Hip Hop, and music in general, and led me to explore all of your albums and mixtapes. While I don't agree with some things said in your songs, I respect your passion and ability to cut through all the crap and be real.

    Your music is important because the issues and themes that you raise are largely unknown or ignored by far too many people. Please don't let the ignorance and negativity of those that would tear you down for trying to lead your misguided brothers and sisters of this world to a more meaningful path.

    With all that being said, if retiring from Hip Hop is what's best for Wasalu Jaco, then thank you for all of the great music that you have given us. I'm sure your passion will lead you to other purposeful paths. If you decide to continue making music, I will gladly get in line to purchase it.

    Keep your head up.

  83. What is it that drives you crazy and puts you in the world of unseen fantasies at times. What drives you to endless imaginative possibilities and helps you ease up your mind and gives you the chance to be thankful for the gifts granted by nature. All this is done through inspirational music, which means we can reclaim our true freedom and be born again.

  84. Lupe will be back. Jay-Z and Nas said the same thing. Besides he's still got a label with Sarah Green and Stonie. Atlantic signed him for five albums. Since they didn't want to drop him when Lasers was MIA I doubt he'll be gone forever. FNF would be useless if no one else put out an album but him because he turned down Rocafella to make his own label.

  86. You jokers seriously think he's leaving cus he can't take an insult or something to do with music? Its something a "bit" more important than that.

    Just listen to/understand the song he leaked. Pretty big hint.
