LEAK: Lupe Fiasco Feat. John Legend – “Never Forget You”

John Legend should sing on every track everywhere, thats my opinion. This is a leaked track from Lupe titled “Never Forget You” but no word yet if this is off his upcoming album Lasers. Listen below!


LISTEN: Lupe Fiasco – S.L.R

Lupe has released another track titled “S.L.R” off his much anticipated album Lasers due out March 2011.  From what I’ve heard so far, I think the wait for this album will be worth it…too bad we have to wait another4 months! Listen to the track below. What do you think?

LISTEN: Lupe Fiasco – “The Show Goes On”

We have all been patiently awaiting Lupe’s  album Lasers for well..almost 3 years now. The album release date had been pushed back numerous times by the record label and has finally been solidified as March 8, 2011. Why the long wait? Maybe it is due to record labels’ obsession with hit songs, if you don’t have one your album is not being released. Digital Music News, in a recent article, quoted Lupe from a Dayton, OH show saying the following about the album making process:

 “The record company sent me a song and said, ‘Lupe we need a number one smash, and this is a number one smash,’ and they sent a track and the hook, and they sent me seven of those,”

“It’s so ridiculous that when I recorded the verses and sent it back to them, they called me back and told me they didn’t like the hook anymore.  And they changed the hook 60 times.”

Listen: Lupe Fiasco – “Go To Sleep”

It’s been a few years since we’ve heard anything new from Chicago rapper Lupe Fiasco who, at the time, had a different hip hop vibe than others. Since then Drake and Kid Cudi have emerged onto the scene, probably taking some of Lupe’s fans since he hasn’t released anything in so long. His latest single “Go To Sleep” is off his LP Food & Liquor 2: The Great American Rap Album and I find it ok. I mean, I was a big fan before but honestly I kind of forgot about him and this single doesn’t have that “I’m back bitches” that grabs me. Unless he comes out with something more wow-ing, I think I’ll stick to Kid Cudi and Drake right now. Follow the link below to listen and let me know what you think!
