New Lupe Fiasco Album Pushed to November

lupe.jpgLupe Fiasco recently told Billboard.com that the release date for his sophomore LP, The Cool, has been pushed back to November. Originally scheduled for an October 30 release, the album will now hit stores on November 20. Lupe is working on the album now with producers Pro and Soundtrack from his 1st & 15th record label, and may tap friends Pharrell and Kanye West for beats as well. The skateboarding MC also revealed that he, West and Pharrell are in discussions to officially release an album as the three man supergroup CRS (Child Rebel Soldiers). The trio debuted their first and only track, “Us Placers” on Kanye’s recent Can’t Tell Me Nothin’ mixtape. Lupe produced the track, which samples “The Eraser” by Radiohead’s Thom York. If the CRS album does see the light of day, it may be one of the last projects that fans will see Lupe on. He revealed to Billboard that he is growing weary of making hip-hop music and will probably hang it up after his third LP. “I’m just wearing down,” he told Billboard. “I’m never doing mixtapes again, not even Internet ones. My whole energy for making hip-hop music is slowing down.”

    Lupe is the Best Rapper Alive. Fuck Lil Wayne!

  • Chicago

    LUPE NOOOOOOO!!! He was one of the last I had faith in to bring clarity to hip hop again. If he does hang up the mic I’m probably not going to listen new hip hop music anymore.

  • Lex

    Def Jam wil not and I repeat will not let Kanye put out an album with 2 people that can’t sell records.

    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
    sure u arent. lets not get to sarcastic here
    and they shoud really rethink the name of their group(child rebel soilders). no matter how historic they want the name to sound its sounds gay, corny, wack, and lame

  • fireforreal

    Lupe has a point. He had one of the best albums within the last 12 monthes and only moved around 90 thousand units. Hip hop is only fascinated with the newest dance,phrase or who is more gangster than the next.I wish more artist would give up because music sucks more and more each year.

  • brebre

    THIS THIS NIGGA SURPRISINGLY BAD IN LIVE. FUCKIN STUDIO RAPPER. THIS NIGGA AIN’T NO FRESH NO MORE. JUST ANOTHER HIPSTER W/ A SKATEBOARD WHO HAPPENS TO BE BLACK. NOW FUCK OFF, DICK SUCKERS.

  • Caine

    Lupe sucks. Let him retire. He won’t be missed by me.

  • REESE

    DAMN.

    LUPE’S STEPPING DOWN?! HE’S ONE OF THE LAST OF A DYING BREED.

    “FOOD & LIQUOR” WAS THE BEST ALBUM IN 2OO6 IN MY OPINION AND THE 1ST & 15TH PRODUCTION WAS INCREDIBLE.

    THE LYRICS IN HIS MIXTAPE TRILOGY WERE EXTREMELY CREATIVE AND INSIGHTFUL. THE “A RHYMING APE” MIXTAPE WAS FIRE.

    IM DEFFINATELY CHECKIN’ FOR “THE COOL”

  • BirdsFlySouth

    Sounds like somebody kicked pushed that album. Lupe is the next Rakim (classic material but it won’t translate into sells)

  • Apollo Moses

    Lupe is one of the top young mc’s in the game. Lines are unmatched by the lil Lame. Bringin the real and concepts these unimaginative studio ganstas couldn’t dream up. Hatas need to check “Conflict Diamonds” cause it was ten times better than what Kanye had spit. Frustration with sales demands is what will lead him to not be motivated, which is happening to a number of legit artist. Ya’ll bandwagon ridas are killin the game tolerating this bullocks

  • Rhyme Skeem

    Damn Lupe. He is one o fthe best young true MC’s in the game. He spits real shit and I guess he feelin that way because real Mc’s that actually got talent dont’t get the recognition they deserve. All Mufukas care about is a weak ass hook and dance number fuck dat dat aint Real. Lupe keep pushin and kickin them lines my nigga. ChiTown stand Up.

    ————————————
    (classic material but it won’t translate into sells) -> IT DOESN’T MAKE LUPE THE NEXT RAKIM. WTF.

    wow…i honestly didn’t think a human being, let alone 2 of them, could possibly be that stupid.

  • Trey

    Hip-Hop as dying as I type this, Lupe is and Papoose are the only ones who can save us…and we are already loosing Lupe, in case ya dont know…Lupe is the best with the lyrics by far in the industry but ya fuckers still wanna crank soulja boy n hurricane chris…sad very sad, im ashamed to be an hip-hop fan

  • chocolate Rain

    AS NAS SAID HIP HOP IS DEAD…I dont blame lupe for quiting

  • http://www.myspace.com/lilroebitch Lil Roe

    I still don’t believe that “The Cool” is dropping THIS year….shit, maybe first or second quarter NEXT year and…..I could understand what Lupe is talkin bout…..shit, I rap and I get tired and burnt out……but, can’t wait for that joint to drop doe…….

  • Rockcity

    I honestly dont blame him for wanting to leave this fucked up game, no one cares for or wants to hear real shit ne more, they’d rather listen to lying fake blood reppin, fake “I got shot” shit all damn day, some people are so programmed, this new generation will believe and fall for ne thing as long as it has a good beat to it. I’m glad i was able to witness real hip hop and real artist.

  • EReal

    Its cause noones feelin him. All he got is internets fans that burn his shit. The only people that appreciate his art, shit on him by stealing it. His album tanked like johnson.
    If I was grindin out and not selling any albums, feeling like my message wasnt being recieved, Id quit that shit too.

    Oh, and he dosent skateboard, like besides just kick push, duke cant rip and hot tricks, hes a lie.

  • 9th Wondera

    Lupe makes some beautiful shit. Next album is going to be fire. One of the top three albums i was looking forward to this year. Question- When is Rae gonna drop cuban linx 2. Ive been waiting for that shiit. All Year.

  • http://www.hoodgrownrecords.com/myhood Hoodgrown

    I guess he’s getting tired of trying to put out quality music only to have it not reflect his hard work in album sales.

    Its’ amazing the downfall hip hop has took. Yes lupe is a premiere MC and one of ti’s saviours(though i think my boy chamillionaire can hold is own) But i dont blame him. Ya’ll dont know the shit dude been through these couple on months PLUS he is with the same label that pushed Food and liquor back a year and a half, and they seized operations at FNF at one point. So for this to happen again, man i’d be tired too. And ya’ll some dumb fucks, this nigga 7 years in man he was underground for a minute. the ones hating are the same ones that like that”shake ya ass and two step shit” He aint quitting because you fake hip hop heads keep burning his shit and stopping his pay, he’s leaving because he’s tired of this on going situation with Atlantic Records, can’t ya’ll read? Lupe and papoose too good for hip hop. Ya’ll fucking ers dont deserve to hear these cats of high caliber.

  • TrillerdenU

    Y’all must be crazy to really think such a good MC gonna retire after 3 albums. He’s just setting y’all up so he can come back like MJ (I’d also compare it to Jay Z’s return but that was as whack as southern rap minus catchy dances). Peace!

  • http://hotmail.com theillest

    Yo, Lupe’s hot but hes so soft and white if he dont want the game, then the game dont need him

  • Hypno

    Hip-Hop died in 2000

    Lupe comes in mainstream wise and tries to revive that good ol’ vibe that it had but u stupid fuckers brought The Game’s shit and other sucky rappers albums, and i kno why he’s quittin, with a shittin disturbution label (i.e. Atlantic Records) and with all the sad/half-ass song comin out (i.e. Ay Bay Bay, Crank That) nigga jus tired of no one really recognizin him and i feel him for that, one gurl told me that she lyked Crank That but didn’t lyk Lupe………..*drops mic and ends comment on Lupe/Hip-Hop*

  • Phreek.

    “Dat Dude” is dead wrong. Met him once. We called him out on his skateboarding and rhyme skills. Lupe rocks on the board. And i skate myself, so i know. Plus, we told him to freestyle about the room we were in. He even blew my mind with that. It was hilarious.

    Never question his real-ness, kid. The dude is not faking.

  • Syke

    Wtf hip hop is done ever since dat bootie stuff came company execs use our style to get paper. and doesn’t anyone realize hiphop is graffiti, breakdancing, dj, and rap. since the others are dead we only have rap left.these are the some of the rappers to keep it on life support papoose, lupe fiasco, kanye, ludacris, wutang, eminem, common, black thought and some more. too bad big L and biggie is gone. i hope crs comes together and flips the script on this gangsta gangsta stuff. but it does seem real hip hop is coming back talib kwali got #2 on the charts and common got #1. lil wayne aint even close to tha top ill never respect a rapper who had someone ghost write for him
