In 2012 Lupe Fiasco released Food & Liquor 2: The Great American Rap Album Pt. 1, and announced plans to release the pt. 2 this year. According to a series of tweets that were eventually deleted, the concept for that album has been scrapped and Lupe is working on another album instead.
“A decision has been made that the project titled ‘F&L2 Part 2′ will be summarily cancelled for public release in 2013. The title/concept for Lupe’s 2013 release will be revealed later this year.” (view screen caps here)
It’ll be interesting to see what direction Lupe has decided to go in once more details arrive.
Lupe Fiasco has been pretty quiet promo wise since the release of Food & Liquor II: The Great American Rap Album Pt. 1, but last night he stopped by Late Night with Jimmy Fallon for a performance of “Battle Scars” with the help of Guy Sebastian. Both guys gave a pretty solid performance, I just wish Lupe would do more performances like this and maybe even a few interviews.

After releasing the thought provoking “B*tch Bad” video yesterday Lupe Fiasco has released the artwork for his forthcoming album Food & Liquor 2: The Great American Rap Album (September 25).
I don’t know if I’m psychic or just a smart fan, but I expected Lupe to do something like this.
