Lupe Fiasco Working On New Album Lasers, Confirms Rep

Lupe Fiasco announced last year that he was retiring from hip-hop after the release of his third disc, LupE.N.D. But now, according to his Twitter account, that project has been abandoned in place of an album titled ‘We Are Lasers.’

The album is just called Lasers, according to a rep for Lupe, who also confirms that the Twitter account is official. On Sunday (March 22), the Chicago MC wrote a message on his Twitter stating that the new project “comes from some repressed high school outcast shit…blended amidst ‘And He Gets The Girl’ ambitions.” He wrote that he’s been recording for roughly a week and is about 60% done. Also adding that he is producing some tracks this go-around and hopes to nab guest appearances from Bun B and Kid CuDi.

As for the pending retirement, Lupe confirmed that he’s still following through on those plans: “yeah I’m still retiring…”

No release date has been announced yet for Lasers, which is the follow-up to 2007’s The Cool. – Clover Hope
