Tweets to Fans
Lupe released his new album, Drogas Light, on February 9th. On Twitter, a fan asked, “Will this album compete with the last one? or is it a different style?”
Lupe answered, “Nope. #DrogasLight is a ‘light’ album in all respects. Musically, content, concepts, some of it is even freestyled. Easy breezy approach.”
Before fans could add their two cents, Lupe beat them all to the punch. He wrote his own review of his new album. He posted the link on Twitter with the caption:
“The only review of #DROGASLight that matters…
A Review Of His New Album DROGAS Light by Lupe Fiasco
Album available now!”
In the review, Lupe confirmed what fans had been assuming all along: Drogas Light was a culmination of old ideas.
“I mean, what is there to prove? And more importantly to whom? When I was young, I had one goal in mind: To be one of the best MC’s in the world and I crossed that threshold almost 15 years ago when Jay-Z, one of my lyrical heroes, gave me his seal of approval. My initial mission was complete, so to speak,” he wrote.
He also said that the album was a “refinement of Lasers,” his 2011 release.
