The good news is, “Food & Liquor 2” is done but the bad news is Lupe said he’s done with mixtapes. He announced the news mid-set at a recent concert in Portland, OR and also added he hasn’t decided whether or not to make the new album a double disc.
“We got a long, illustrious career on the mixtape circuit, right?” said Lupe. “Some pretty groundbreaking things on those mixtapes, right?
“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.
“Second piece of announcements. …Food & Liquor 2 is done. Release date? I dunno. 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.”
All in all, not a bad but of news.
