Lupe Fiasco recently spoke about his plan to release a DJ "Soundclash" album. Despite also working on his "Food & Liquor 2" album, Lupe plans to release a single by Halloween and the album by the end of the year.
“Me and my partner Scott started a dj collective called Soundclash so we’re working on that album right now and hopefully we’ll have a single out by Halloween and will try and push an album out around that and tour and all that," he said. "There’s a Lupe Fiasco mixtape that’s coming which hopefully we’ll have out before the end of the year and that will hopefully lead up to the next Lupe Fiasco album. And that’s really it, just more touring, touring, touring and music, music, music, music.” (hiphopdx)
Lupe went on to talk about his favorites in rap, naming artists like Nas and Mos Def.
"When it comes back to hip hop I still like Nas and Mos Def and even the newer guys like Kendrick Lamar and Kid Cudi who can definitely kind of catch my ear and keep my edge sharp I guess.” (hiphopdx)
