Lupe Fiasco Cancels One Album, Schedules Two More

By Steven Roberts

Lupe Fiasco is really upset. He’s not quite typing-in-all-caps upset, but he is putting three exclamation points at the end of his sentences on his blog. He is so upset that he decided to postpone the release of his third — and reportedly final — album, LUPE.N.D, indefinitely.

Lupe broke the news on his blog in a post titled “Breaking News… Listen Up Ths Affects You!!!”

“Due to circumstances beyond my control…the album roll out has changed radically,” he wrote. “LUPE.N.D. has been postponed indefinitely!!!”

He doesn’t explain why, though. The Grammy-nominated rapper has also been masquerading as Percival Fats, the lead singer for Japanese Cartoon, and it’s not entirely clear what’s going on there, either. He said that the rumor mill and certain cowards were going to have a field day speculating, but few outside his blog have really seemed to notice.

He wrote that Japanese Cartoon’s debut album, In the Jaws of the Lords of Death, will be released on the same day in June as his next LP, The Great American Rap Album. If you think that title is interesting, here’s the tracklisting:

1. Song #1
2. Song #2
3. Song #3
4. Song #4
5. Song #5
6. Song #6
7. Song #7
8. Song #8
9. Song #9
10. Song #10
11. The Greatest Rap Song Ever Made

He concludes by writing, “I hate the music business … but I love music … Grammy’s Here We Come!!!”
