I run another site besides this Lupe blog. It’s a site about freestyle soccer. Most of you probably don’t know anything about it, but it’s pretty damn cool. Check out this video I made today. If you like it, you can get more at www.beyondfootball.com.
Kanye West’s upcoming fourth album will be called “808’s & Heartbreaks” and is set to be released on December 16th, 2008.
As I’ve posted before, it’s not going to be called “Good Ass Job” as many thought. Kanye West is obviously going to take a different standpoint for “808’s & Heartbreaks.” Although nothing specific has been announced, I’m sure his mom’s death and his break up with his fiance will give this album a more love-like and unique flow. Kanye will also use auto-tune a lot more on this album. I have even read that he’ll use it on the entire album. I hope it’s not true, but even if he does, I won’t mind too much. Kanye West pulls off the auto-tune the best at the moment.
We all continue to hope that Lupe Fiasco will not stop rapping after his next and last album. It seems like our wishes will not come true, especially after Lupe Fiasco firmly stated that he’ll step away from rapping after his next album.
Lupe Fiasco was quoted saying: “I just don’t really feel like rapping anymore.”
“I’m going to write a book and put out [other artists'] albums like Matthew Santos.”
He claims he will not change his mind like Jay Z did. Lupe Fiasco also hasn’t started working on his new album. In an interview with Mister Bentley on the red carpet, Lupe said he won’t start recording until the end of the year.
Lupe Fiasco’s part on the MTV VMAs was pretty small. He got to perform “Superstar” but on the side but it was nothing compared to the other performances. MTV only broadcasted one verse of the song, which just shows that the man is not even getting close the respect that he deserves.
Keep doing your thing Lupe and knock them out with your remix album with Justice as well as your final album. The true fans know what you’re about. Here’s a video of Lupe Fiasco’s live performance at the MTV VMAs:
