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?
