Rikki Martinez of Power 106 in Los Angeles continues her streak of great interviews with Lupe. Although Lupe appears to be in a not so good mood, she manages to get him to open up. Watch above as he speaks about working with Ty Dolla $ign, Ab-Soul, wanting to get out of his contract with Atlantic, expectations from fans, supporting the USMNT, disliking Twitter and wanting to delete his account, feeling like the Internet made him dumb and retirement.

Chicago MC Ace Mac has finally dropped the sequel to his 2007 mixtape. With assistance from Raheem Devaughn, Ace and Lupe have collabed before on "Cruisin" (EXTREMELY underrated track) but this time they team up again on track 19 of All Aces Vol. 2. It's interesting to note that the mixtape cover has both the 1st & 15th and Terror Squad logos on it.
Listen to the collab above and hit the jump to check out all 24 tracks on All Aces Vol. 2 which also features Fat Joe and Busta Rhymes!
