Lupe Fiasco’s “Food and Liquor 2” to Be Double Album; First Single Expected On May 22nd

(AllHipHop News) Grammy Award-winning artist Lupe Fiasco has announced that his next album, the highly-anticipated sequel to his 2006 debut Food & LiquorFood & Liquor 2, will also be a double album release.

While speaking to FUSE at the Beale StreetMusic Festival, which took place this past weekend in Memphis, Tennesee, Lupe revealed the news regarding Food & Liquor 2 and also suggested that fans should mark their calendars for May 22. That is the date that the rapper behind two of the most acclaimed Hip-Hop albums of the past decade, may premiere the new album’s currently untitled first single.

Lupe told FUSE, “This is my fourth album, and this is actually a part one and part two, it’s a double album. With this record, I wanted to go back to the essence of what made that record so special, the frame of mind I was in when I did Food & Liquor the first time.”

This is not the first that the public has heard of Lupe’s double album plan. At a concert in Portland, Oregon last March, Lupe announced this news, as well as the revelation that he would no longer be releasing mixtapes.

“It’s the Lupe Fiasco I want to be, without the industry constraints, without the trying to please the hardcore fans or get the new fans,” said Lupe. “It’s just what I would do for myself if nobody ever heard it. This is the kind of music I would make. It’s a masterpiece. It’s really f*cking good.”
