Lupe Fiasco was definitely in a musical groove this year, not only giving fans ‘Pharaoh Height‘ three months ago but he started off 2015 strong with a January release of Tetsuo & Youth.
While the early wins piled up and continued throughout his year, 2016 looks to be shaping up for an encore as Lupe took to Twitter announcing he would be releasing 3 full albums this upcoming year. Every time we think he is about to hang up his jersey or pump fakes like he might, we get an overload of dope music as if to say “Yes, I am still one of the nicest…I do this for fun and because you guys just don’t get it yet.” Always brilliantly providing a mixture of message and punchlines, the Chicago emcee definitely just added more excitement to the New Year.
Attention Lupe Fans: 3 full album releases in 2016. 🙏🏾 #Drogas is up first. Not taking any questions at this time. Thank you.
