Lupe Fiasco Confirms "Food & Liquor 2" Is A Double Album, Speaks On LP Cut "Form Follows Function"
Lupe Fiasco says the album's first single will arrive on May 22nd.
Lupe Fiasco recently revealed that he had completed recording tracks for his upcoming album Food & Liquor 2, the sequel to his 2006 debut. During an interview with FUSE, the Chicago, Illinois rapper confirmed plans to make the project a double-album and explained that while recording it, he wanted to get back to what made his first record such a hit amongst fans.
"Food & Liquor 2 is the follow-up, the sequel to my first album Food & Liquor. This is my fourth album, and this is actually a part one and part two, it’s a double album. With this record, I wanted to go back to the essence of what made that record so special, the frame of mind I was in when I did Food & Liquor the first time," he explained. "It’s the Lupe Fiasco I want to be, without the industry constraints, without the trying to please the hardcore fans or get the new fans. It’s just what I would do for myself if nobody ever heard it. This is the kind of music I would make. It’s a masterpiece. It’s real fucking good."
He also said that the album single will "hopefully" arrive on May 22nd. But he spoke to a particular song from the album, "Form Follows Function," explaining that it's one of his best songs and that "nobody's fucking with that."
"There’s a joint on there called ‘Form Follows Function’ that is a monster. It’s a monster. Nobody’s fucking with that, I just put that out there. Any other records I give other rappers and musicians, you could possibly do a better song than those. But ‘Form Follows Function,’ rappers ain’t fucking with that. That’s how good it is. I’m not being egotistical or anything. You just can’t fuck with that."
