UPDATE #2: The hacker group Anonymous says it was responsible for getting Atlantic Records to tweet a release date for Lupe Fiasco's "Tetsuo & Youth" album.

During an interview with Sway In The Morning, Lupe Fiasco hints at an August release date for Tetsuo & Youth. He says the date has been set for about three months.

"The album is coming," Fiasco says. "It’s not June. It’s not Ramadan. So there’s one month left."

Ramadan runs from June 28 to July 28 this year, leaving the month of August left in summer.

Lupe Fiasco confirms the features list for the album is slated to include Rick Ross, Big K.R.I.T., Ab-Soul and Chris Brown. Production will come from S1, DJ Dahi, Jake One and J.U.S.T.I.C.E League, among others.

During the interview, the Chicago rapper also says that he is at a point in his music that everything he does has specific purpose. He says he wants his town to be known for more than the "Chi-Raq Freestyle" battle. One song Fiasco mentions in the interview specifically is “Mission,” a cut about fighting cancer.

“It was a reaction to take myself out of being the punching bag for people and then make music that I felt like if I die tomorrow, that I want songs to be like that,” he says. “I want you to remember what I did like that. Lupe put that into the world.”

UPDATE: Atlantic Records tweeted yesterday (October 15) that Lupe Fiasco's Tetsuo & Youth will be released January 20, 2015.

    Unfortunately he hasn't been good since "The Cool" album. Not sure if that has anything to do with the direction Atlantic is making him take, or the direction he's taking. Either way the only way to know is when he leaves Atlantic and puts another project together. Hopefully he can get back to basics and duplicate the success he had with his first two albums.

    I want to know how Lupe can act all righteous like he is helping all these people with his music yet he has Rick Ross and Chris Brown on his album. Both of these individuals are in it for fortune and fame while Lupe is supposed to be doing it to educate. This is extremely disappointing. If he wasn't a sell out after Lasers he is one now.

      thats prolly why he did it. to get that exact reaction.

      "thats prolly why he did it. to get that exact reaction." No he did it cause he's a fucking hack who can't stand by what he says. He's the Conscious Rap version of Game.
