Lupe Fiasco Gives Update On CRS Project With Kanye West and Pharrell


(AllHipHop News) Fans have long awaited the release of CRS (Child Rebel Soldier), a special project from Kanye West, Lupe Fiasco and Pharrell, but the project has not manifested after about four years.

The outlook on the super group’s feature is bleak, according to Fiasco, who said an album wasn’t likely.

“Um, probably not. I don’t foresee it. I don’t know,” he said in an exclusive interview with AllHipHop.com.

The Chicago rapper proceeded to explain, at length, how things have progressed since the trio released “US Placers” in 2007.

Lupe continued: “Everybody has their different approaches. Do you want a CRS album or do you want a ‘Friend of the People‘ mixtape or do you want a ‘Food and Liquor 2‘ or do you want… It’s like, you know, you can’t do all of it. And then with CRS I have to get Pharrell on the same page and get Kanye on the same page – is it something that we even still want to do, you know? It was something that we maybe thought about doing 3 or 4 years ago. 3 or 4 years later, is that something that we still want to do?”

On several occasions, it seemed like the highly-sought opus would release new material to no avail. Lupe Fiasco did leave a sliver of hope for fans.

“It ain’t on me, it ain’t on Lupe,” he continued. “There’s three other people that’s involved; three different record labels; three different kinds of systems and management and all this other kind of stuff involved. So, creatively I’m always down to collaborate but, this particular thing, I don’t know.”

This is an excerpt of a larger interview, where Lupe Fiasco discusses his thoughts on the Occupy Wall Street movement, President Obama, The Republicans and other matters concerning the state of affairs in America. The full interview is forthcoming.

  • Yo! Dre’ Thompson:
    Look past Obama’s skin & “AFRICAN AMERICAN ” ( not Black , like his wife, his father is African & a citizen of Kenya…making Obama a dual citizen & ineligible to be president…regardless of where he was born ) & judge him on what he has done for Black people.

    Which is nothing!
    I already heard the top 10 reasons why Obama can’t / won’t / don’t do $hyt for Black people already , so no need to rehash them , instead look at Bush’s policies & Obama’s & compare them side by side & you will see that the only difference between the 2 is the fact that Obama does more of Bush’s policies…on top of invading Africa. 
     
    400 yrs of White men looking out for white people ONLY & the 1st ( so-called Black ) African American pres has to be a president for “EVERYONE”??? Which loosely translates to continuing to fugg over the Blacks & poor.

    No talk of reparations , but can give wallstreet 750 Billion , bail out banks, big business, etc.
    For all that , they could have dipped Donald Duck in chocolate & Blacks would give him a pass.

    TSA taking over the highways, more unjust wars , laws & corporations exploiting us & our children.

    That’s like saying if a jacker robs you , your only mad if he’s white , but it’s cool if he’s black cuz he’s a brother.
    Judge Obama on his actions , not his skin color.

    • Dual citizenship is only given if the parents pursue it. Im jamaican and the only way my daughter can get dual citizenship is if I file for it in Jamaica before she is two. Just because his father is an african citizen does not make him an african. He has no rights over there just as they have no rights over here. Only says 14 years living in US. 35 years of age and born in the US AKA Citizenship

    THE PROBLEM IS THAT RAPPERS THAT ARE POLITICALLY CHARGED USUALLY PICK THE WEAKEST BEATS. THEN, THE HOODEST RAPPERS WITH NO LYRICAL CONTENT PICK THE HARDEST BEST. I KINDA DON’T UNDERSTAND BUT IT’S A CONSTANT PATTERN. I CAN’T TELL YOU HOW MANY TIMES I’VE HOPED TO CATCH A BREAK IN MY LIFE SO THAT I COULD SHOW THE WORLD HOW IT SHOULD BE DONE. I CONSIDER MYSELF A DIAMOND COVERED IN DIRT BECAUSE NOBODY KNOWS HOW MUCH I CAN SHINE AND I HATE IT BECAUSE THERE’S TOO MANY RAPPERS IN THE GAME THAT HELP RUIN SOCIETY WITH MATERIALISM AND NEGATIVITY
