After announcing his retirement, Lupe Fiasco quickly backtracked himself only a few days later to confirm the release date of his upcoming album, Drogas Light. Back in December, Lupe announced that his newest project would be released on February 10th. After releasing “Made in the USA”, “Pick Up the Phone”, and “Wild Child”, Lupe has given a further preview into the upcoming project with his latest single, “Jump”. On the Soundtrackk produced instrumental, Lupe Fiasco and the L.A. based Gizzle manage to create what is probably Lupe’s best track in recent memory. Banger, slapper, fire, lit, whatever you want to call it, just know it’s damn good. The song is available on music streaming services and iTunes. Drogas Light is available for pre-order on Amazon.
While fans anticipate the upcoming album, it has not come without an excessive amount of drama. After dropping his “N.E.R.D” freestyle, the twitter community and journalists accused Lupe of being anti-Semetic for proclaiming “Artist gettin’ robbed before they publish/By dirty Jewish execs that think his alms from the covenant”. Soundcloud even took down his song, citing it as “Hate Speech”. Apparently, these events outraged him enough to briefly quit music before making a comeback and announcing his upcoming project and its artwork.
