    So, F&L2 Part II has been scrapped along with Skulls apparently, so now we get Tetsuo and Youth. Who wants to place a bet that this album will be scrapped in no time? :lol:

    Anyways, here is the announcement of the new album below.

    Is that a reference to Akira? I love you Lupe and I know you love anime but, what?

    I love Lupe, but why is the guy always announcing and scrapping and delaying albums?

    I understood why LASERS was delayed, but this is getting fucking ridiculous. :lol:

    That's instantly what I thought too! I mean, if someone is going to have Tetsuo in the title, they better be able to give the listener the world of Akira. And I absolutely love Lupe, but I don't think he is capable of doing that.

    You're horrible. Just kidding. But seriously, do more research please.

    Food & Liquor II is already out.

    F&L 2 has been out for awhile. :dafuq:

    Edit: Or is he just scrapping the concept?

    Christ, didn't he just release an album, like, 5 Months Ago? Now he's got another one?

    He seems to be working on 3 at any given time. I imagine it's more of a mindset/stylistic thing that separates each album.

    Sorry for necroposting, but the first single of Tetsuo & Youth, "Old School Love" featuring Ed Sheeran is out now. I'm not sure about how you guys would react though. Personally, for me it's a pretty radio-friendly single. :lol:

    *EDIT* video taken down, official audio down at Jeff's post

    ^ The video you posted was taken down, but here's the audio on Atlantic's official channel. :)

    As far as the song goes, it's alright, nothing to get excited about.

    Good first single IMO. I've realized the singles the fans aren't keen on end up being massive hits and the ones we love never got much play. I'm suprised no one has posted:

    Another Tetsuo song:

    Possible leftover from F&L2:

    My thoughts exactly in terms of Lupe's execution with each release.

    Highly anticipating Tetsuo & Youth.

    I don't think I'll be fully satisfied with a Lupe album until he gets out of his Atlantic deal.

    Tetsuo & Youth along with whatever he follows up with and he should be done right?

    Fkin sick! That new track is on fire!

    Didn't get a chance to check out his last album after the upset that was 'LASERS'. Haven't had Lupe on my radar for years. Will definitely check out Food & liquor 2.
