Lupe Fiasco releases artwork for the first of three albums coming in 2016, DROGAS!



It is officially 2016 and 364 days from now, Lupe plans to have added 3 more albums to his catalog. First up will be DROGAS and Lupe recently took to Twitter to release some artwork for the project. Above is a picture of a pistol, money, jewelry, car keys and a cross which he captioned "Don't Ruin Us God Said", a lyric from "T.R.O.N" off Tetsuo & Youth. Below is a photo of the 1986 book by Jawanza Kunjufu, "Countering The Conspiracy To Destroy Black Boys Vol. 2" which he captioned "I'll Do My Best".




It's not clear yet whether these will be 2 separate album covers for DROGAS or if "Don't Ruin Us God Said" & "I'll Do My Best" are song titles from the project with these being the accompanying artwork for each. Stay tuned for more info!


To celebrate the 8th anniversary of The Cool, Lupe announces details for 5 upcoming albums!


Lupe started 2015 off with a bang by releasing his fifth studio album Tetsuo & Youth then followed it up with his first official release as an independent artist, the mixtape Pharaoh Height 2/30. It appears that Lupe does not plan on slowing down any time soon!

The 8th anniversary of Lupe's sophomore gold-certified album The Cool was just a few days ago. Since then, Lupe has released tons of information about future plans. First, we can expect SNDCLSH to finally release their Don't Drop The Flag EP before the end of this month. Next up, Lupe announced that he will be releasing 3 full albums in 2016. The first of those will be #DROGAS which will include a track titled "Mural Jr.". (It appears that Lupe may have released the cover for #DROGAS a while back as well). There isn't any information yet on what the other 2 albums coming in 2016 are but speculation is that it may be previously announced Skulls with Soundtrakk, Black Vietnam with S1 or M.I.L.K Is For Pussies with Japanese Cartoon!

Finally, its been well documented that Lupe has been working on the sequel to his sophomore effort for some years now. We will have to wait a little while longer as Lupe announced that The Cool 2 will be dropping in the winter of 2017, possibly on the 10th anniversary of the original album. 2 years is a long time, but judging by the above artwork for the project, it will be well worth the wait!

Which of these projects are you most excited for? Tell us in the comments below!
