Album Watch: In The E.N.D. Lupe Hangs Up His Mic

Monday, November 3, 2008

Lupe Fiasco...we hardly knew yee. Awhile back, rapper Lupe announced that he will be releasing his final---yes, final--album next year. This brings a little glitter-filled tear to my eye as Lupe was probably one of a handful of rappers I will give the money out of my wallet for. Give a sarcastic thanks to the Hip-Hop Ice n' Tattoos Guild (Soulja Boy is collecting funds at present) for having a hand at making Lupe flee the scene. Lupe's reasons for departing may boil down to the fact that he wasn't about all the bling or street cred and well that wasn't enough to sell albums. For shame since his last two albums, 2006's Food & Liquor and 2007's The Cool were on point. Still Lupe isn't going out quietly, as his third effort, LupE.N.D. will be a three disc extravaganza (and no, Lupe would never say "extravaganza"...so I'll say it for him). The "E.N.D." stands as an acronym for Everywhere.Nowhere.Down Here. Hmm...I feel some underlying message is in that album title...but it's Monday morning and I'm too sleepy to ponder it. Let us all hope that Lupe does a Jay-Z, and turns around and comes back before we missed him, but that is still far-fetched at this point. Well, at least us Fiasco fans will get three albums for the price of one when the final curtain closes. LupE.N.D. will be dropping in stores come 2009.
