Lupe Fiasco, the Chicago rapper known for his seminal works “Food & Liquor” and “The Cool,” announced today on Twitter that his followup to “Food & Liquor,” titled “Food & Liquor 2: Great American Rap Album Pt. 1,” has been mastered.
Along with stating a tentative listening session for fans and music executives, Lupe hinted at a “July” release. The only factor that would impede release is if the new album includes two CD’s worth of content or not.
Fiasco dropped his latest project, “Lasers,” in 2011 to mixed critism, and also questioned the trust of fellow fans. Here’s hoping that his next effort shows a return to boom-bap form.
Props to HipHopDX for the scoop.
