Lupe Fiasco Discusses Label Frustrations and Ponders Retirement In New Interview

Lupe Fiasco has taken an odd turn over the last couple of years.

Lupe Fiasco Streams “Snitches” Featuring Ty Dolla $ign

Lupe Fiasco surprised fans last night with the premiere of not one, but two brand new tracks.

The internet has been a useful tool for everyone from acclaimed producer Clams Casino to rap enigma Lil B to launch themselves into various levels of notability.

There’s only one tweet, posted January 17 (following Lupe’s various tweet deletion sprees), directing visitors to the profiles of Fiasco-associated acts DJ Busy and SNDCLSH. Fiasco’s account is only following five people. HE EVEN HAS THE […]
