Lupe Fiasco chopped it up with Fuse TV on his upcoming album.
Lupe Fiasco announced recently that Food & Liquor 2 was completed, and now in an interview with FUSE, he reveals more details on the project, saying that it will be a double LP.
“Food & Liquor 2 is the follow-up, the sequel to my first album Food & Liquor. This is my fourth album, and this is actually a part one and part two, it’s a double album. With this record, I wanted to go back to the essence of what made that record so special, the frame of mind I was in when I did Food & Liquor the first time,” Lupe shared.
“The single is coming on May 22nd,” Lupe revealed, before going into more depth on one particular song off the album, called “Form Follows Function.”
“There’s a joint on there called ‘Form Follows Function’ that is a monster. It’s a monster. Nobody’s fucking with that, I just put that out there. Any other records I give other rappers and musicians, you could possibly do a better song than those. But ‘Form Follows Function,’ rappers ain’t fucking with that. That’s how good it is. I’m not being egotistical or anything. You just can’t fuck with that.”
He continued, “It’s the Lupe Fiasco I want to be, without the industry constraints, without the trying to please the hardcore fans or get the new fans. It’s just what I would do for myself if nobody ever heard it. This is the kind of music I would make. It’s a masterpiece. It’s real fucking good.”
