Lupe Fiasco gives us some details about Tetsuo & Youth


Lupe recently talked to RollingStone and revealed some details about Tetsuo & Youth. The content of the record, inspirations and how it'll sound like. 

"For some people it's gonna be a shock, because there are no politics on the record. Consciously, there are no politics on the record, if you want to hear my political spiel or some pseudo-intellectual Lupe, go listen to [2012's] Food & Liquor II. From here on out, I'm just making music."

Fiasco says that Tetsuo & Youth's lyrical content was partially inspired by his upbringing in Chicago's crime-ridden Westside: "The content of it is like, 'Oh, shit -- I didn't know Lupe could talk like that. I didn't know Lupe knew that guy. I didn't know Lupe was affiliated with that.'"

"Day one Lupe Fiasco fans, from 2003 or 2004, they're gonna get a lot of that back," he says."That's gonna be a surprise. You gotta have those five or so years to have that retrospective moment."

"You're gonna feel this shit, trust me -- like, 'Oh shit, I can't believe Lupe did a record with that guy. And that guy. And that guy and that guy."

  2. I'm glad Lupe switched up from negative messages to positive ones, but his gangsta songs were something else. Hope to hear that old young and hungry fire again.

  5. YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSS SIRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!! FNF UP!!!

    I loved the postive messages...
    I know we need to know the truth...
    But sometimes we purposely turn our eyes to the truth for a little bit because it is very heavy on the soul.

    Thank you Lu and I will buy 2-3 CD just to spread the love among my peers!

    Basically he's saying mixtape verbals. That doesn't mean no conceptual tracks. That means none of the preachy, delivery from F&L2... which I didn't mind for some of the tracks but on other tracks got a bit forceful.

    1. Crack's concept/double meaning is crazy "glass dick in her jaw" = crack pipe. Whole song is a Sex/Cocaine (Fiend) double meaning get hip to a master at work

  11. I love the politics and the preachy songs but I'm a die hard Lupe fan since I heard Kick Push. I went to his mixtapes and been hooked ever since. But @ the same time I would love for him to do himand reach a broader crowd. Cause we all know he's gona put his own spin on the street sound.

  12. As long as he flows like he did back then and not how he has been for the last few years I'm okay with a little more Pop Pop, Lu Myself type of Lupe

  13. Thank God for no more politics! Talking about polititians never changes a damn thing coz they dont give a fuck. Life stories and social issues is what we want to hear! Hope there are some tracks that we can really bump.

  14. Foolish people act as if Lupe was only political since FAL2.... Yet he's been political since Blood Diamonds.

    Or perhaps that statement is short sighted... Are social issues not in themselves political? Of course they are.
