Lupe Fiasco Announces Three Full-Length Albums on the Way in 2016

Lupe Fiasco was definitely in a musical groove this year, not only giving fans Pharaoh Heightthree 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.

As if having enough content to fill three Lupe albums wasn’t a big enough gift, Cool Young Lu is also hitting the road to touch the fans and personally deliver a few mind boggling lines we’ve come to love. If you haven’t had a chance to see when he’ll be in your city, check out the dates below and be sure to grab tickets ASAP.
