Lupe Fiasco’s Debut Gets Pushed Back

Lupe Fiasco’s Food & Liquor has been pushed back from its June 27 release date, a result of an early leak of the freshman debut.

The highly-anticipated album was leaked to the Internet over a month ago to the ire of the artist and Atlantic Records.

A representative for the label confirmed that Lupe has begun recording new songs for a revised version of Food & Liquor.

In a previous report, Lupe suggested that he has secured feature appearances from Jay-Z, Pharrell, Jill Scott, Three-6 Mafia and others.

“My project wasn’t completed, there’s all a lot of other things I had orchestrated and arranged for the album. The leak kind of takes away from the experience I had planned for myself and for the experience I had planned for my fans,” he said. “You see the kids that have downloaded it from the Internet and s**t, that’s them. They’re not going to experience it on June 27th, but my audience is way bigger than [that].”
