Lupe Fiasco Announces New Album

Lupe Fiasco announces his new album title on the red carpet at the Grammy Awards.

After canceling the second installment of Food & Liquor II: The Great American Rap Album, Chicago emcee Lupe Fiasco has finally settled on a name for his new album.

On the red carpet for the Grammy Awards, Lu told Fuse that he's putting the music done for sequel to Food & Liquor II "in the safe" and that he's settled on a new LP title, Tetsuo & Youth.

"A lot of the music we did for it, we're just kind of putting in the safe. We're starting with a new album that's called Tetsuo & Youth. It's a different angle and twist," he said.

Earlier this morning, someone from the controversial emcee’s camp tweeted that Tetsuo & Youth would be the title for the rapper’s fifth studio album.

“Hello. #LF is happy to announce his album title for 2013. ‘TETSUO & YOUTH’ We Wish You Good Luck @ #TheGrammies Today. Thank You.” Fans were able to take screenshots of the tweet before it was deleted moments later.

Tetsuo is a reference to the 1989 Japanese cult classic Tetsuo: The Iron Man. Fiasco’s last album, Food & Liquor II: The Great American Rap Album, Pt.1, was nominated for Best Rap Album at this year’s Grammy Awards and lost to Drake's Take Care.

      Right? Jay doesn't know how right he was about people today when he asked "Do you listen to Music or do you just skim through it?" I'm so sure these fucking haters DLed the illegal version and listened to about 30 seconds of the album

    man that was sum BS!!! Take Care aint even a rap album. F&L2 was the real deal, one of the greatest albums to drop. Man, it rly showed how bad society has become.

    lupe is such an emotional irrelevent joke. All he raps about is his bullshit politcal views or some other knowledge dropping bs that no1 wants to here. We listen to music to feel good not some bullshit. Btw didn't chief keef end his irrelevent music carreer allready.
    • Joe
      No, just YOU want to feel good when you listen to music. The stuff Lupe talks about is stuff people do want to hear but are to afraid to say anything about. Your comment is a joke, Chief "Queef" is a joke and his career has ended before it started. Chief "Queef" is one of the many reasons Hip-Hop is considered a mockery by SO many other genres of music and people. You should be fucking embarrassed because of that. You fucking ignorant illuminati wanna-be.

  • QBN
    Lupe, just get back to making dope music. His last 2 albums were weak.., get better production and focus on the music. I'm giving him one more shot..

    I would buy this album on the strength of the name alone. I hope its gonna be a concept album like The Cool cause Tetsuo is some pretty specific shit that probably flies clear over 90% of niggas heads, for good reason. I just hope he ditches all that wack production that we've been seeing on his last two albums. What a tragedy those albums were.

      Dude they're the Grammys. No one gives a fuck about them other than to make jokes on twitter
  • goose
    I thought he quit.
  • Ken
    needs better production quality than his last album. songs were so unevenly ordered it did not flow well as a straight-through listen.
    • Sincere
      I agree. The only thing that's weak on a Lupe Fiasco album is the production. His lyrics are sick though! He killed that Travis Barker joint as well.

    At this point, I doubt he knows where he wants to go. Kinda all over the place. Hope he get clarity
    He ain't wearing shoes in that video on the red carpet... All I gotta say.
