Lupe Fiasco Announces New Album "Tetsuo & Youth"

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.
