Hip-Hop Rumors: Is Lupe Fiasco Retiring From Music To Become A Teacher?

After a very public spat over Twitter with Chicago rapper Chief Keef and numerous label politics holding him back from releasing his music, Lupe Fiasco has announced that he is retiring from music. Check out what he tweeted below:

“This album will probably be my last…its been a pleasure to have all my fans provide so much love an inspiration for me and my family,”

“but my heart is broken and i see no comfort further along this path only more pain. I cannot participate any longer in this…”

“My first true love was literature so i will return to that…lupe fiasco ends here…”

In an interview with Hard Knock TV last month, Lupe hinted at teaching as his next endeavor after music.

“Yeah, I got an offer, it’s in the works. But it’s not solid yet. It’s something that kind of just came up — very serious, but just kind of like, ‘Okay — go back to the drawing board, figure out what you want me to do, exactly, put a plan together and then let’s go back to the table. So that’s what’s happening right now. If it all comes into fruition, I think it’s something I’ll definitely be doing.”

Lupe’s album Food & Liquor 2 is still scheduled to be released on September 25. Are you sad to see Lupe go? Do you think he will change his mind?

  • Hope he says!

  • His mind is too sharp to be in the position that he’s in right now. I don’t blame him one bit.

  • TheBigCheeFa

    he can do both.rap and teach

  • Stay Phokus

    i blame the ignorant people that rather listen to mind numbing brainwashing uneducated rappers , that are one dimensional and can only rap about money hoes cars and will never talk about real world topics

    • johnblacksad

      I see… you and Lupe are the n!ggaz that are too good for us… good for ya’ll

      The whole universe is balance… mind numbing brainwashing uneducated rappers are also part of God’s plan… i thought Lupe would find it easy understanding this

      • Wow really!!! Gods Plan includes free will. The will to choose the right path not glorify everything wrong in our society. I don’t think Stayphokus or Lupe thinks their better then you, but I think some where in side your head you feel their better then you and your defensive comments speak loudly my man.

      • EB

        I think you are exactly right Brooklyn817

        i never said i was better or “too good” for anything
        im just sayin theres more to life than what you see in your “hood”
        where rappers are glorifyin the wrong aspects of it which is being marketed to young kids and then you wonder why 11 year olds are on the corner trying to pushing drugs
        on top of that a rapper who goes outside the box to rap (lupe fiasco) to try to show people that theres more to life than the street, doesnt get pushed because nobody wants to actually think about what he’s saying.
        they just wanna listen to the same ol same ol medicore at best music that doesnt have longevity

    My first true love was literature… lol @ this whiny heart-broken-n!gga… so hip-hop never was your first love huh?! i coulda swear he made seem like it… anyways… don’t care much… go back to literature then… there’s something about this n!gga i really really really do not like… this ninja came in the game tryin to dress better than kanye and pharrell combined, all the while tryin to sound like dead prez and’em… nothing wrong with that really but still something weird about it if you ask me…

    This ninja got too much stretchy moves just to stress how different he is from other n!ggaz… F.O.H.W.T.B.S…. can you really call Obama a terrorist without getting a major shaq face? c’mon, seriously… this ninja wanna sit here and defend that sh!t with serious arguments and sh!t not knowing he dismissed hisself in my eyes with that dumb comment

    He’s talented as fugg on the mic/lyrical tip/flow etc… never said otherwise… he gets pretty complex with his sh!t… he has mad sh!t that’ll fly by you the first time you listen… ok i admit all that… on the music tip, rap tip… he dope, he good, whatever ya want… he’s better than 80% of these rappers out there…

    It is what it is… if you wanna stay doin rap, cool with me because of that talent, but all the other cryin and whinin, i really do not wanna hear… you can’t take the heat, then get the fcuk real fast out the kitchen… good luck with that literature or teachin stint… my only advice is you don’t step out there and try to reproduce what you already done in hip-hop : don’t be tryin to explain to the whole world why you are better than all the other teachers because you are so different and unique and etc etc…

    all you butt-hurt ninjaz can unlike this all you want… you wont break my heart nor damage my comfort further along this path! one!

    • What??? You used too many words just to say you like him as a rapper but thats it. Lupe is a grown man with his own opinion just as you have yours. Further more as you stated “all you butt-hurt ninjaz can unlike this all you want… you wont break my heart nor damage my comfort further along this path! one!” i’m sure your little rant won’t pass his eye lids nor will they tickle his ear drums. lastly no one says your career has to be your first love or main passion. Michael Jordan played B-ball but loved baseball, Lebron Loves Football but choose B-ball to prolong his career and Andre 3000 is a painter who is great with words. Don’t judge Lupe because he has a mind. Now go pop in you Waka CD and think about you next “thats the Stuff I dont like…”Chief Keef inspired comment. One!!!
