After announcing his retirement from music recently, Lupe Fiasco has announced a new album, DROGAS Light. Lupe shared the release date, February 10th, and what seems like cover art on Twitter. See the tweet here. His last album was 2015’s Tetsuo & Youth.
Lupe announced his plans to release a trilogy of albums in 2016 which he later took back due to “clearance and mixing issues.” He later shared a track named “Made in America,” reportedly from an album called Drogas Light planned to be released “at the top of 2017 via 1st & 15th/Thirty Tigers.”
His plans come to a halt when a lyric in a new song “N.E.R.D.” started anti-semitism claims among listeners. After defending the track on Twitter, Lupe announced his decision to retire from music: “Yo Lupe fans it’s been fun and I hope you’ve had fun,” he wrote, “I’m officially not releasing anymore music. Albums cancelled.” He briefly put his Twitter to private before starting debates with the CEO of the Anti-Defamation League.
