Chicago rapper Lupe Fiasco announced to a crowd in Portland, OR that he is done releasing mixtapes. Lupe acknowledged that fans have enjoyed his mixtapes thus far, but made it clear that he is no longer interested in releasing them.
"We got a long, illustrious career on the mixtape circuit, right? Some pretty groundbreaking things on those mixtapes, right?," Lupe told a crowd of Portland fans during a recent concert. "So, in light of that history of amazing, lyrical feats and superb wordsmith-ness, I am sad to say tonight that there will be no more Lupe Fiasco mixtapes.
The rapper also gave an update on his highly-anticipated album Food & Liquor 2.
"Second piece of announcements. ... Food & Liquor 2 is done. Release date? I don't know," he says. "Let's just say -- July. The only thing that's holding Food & Liquor 2 up -- is whether or not it's gonna be a double CD or not."
