Another One "Retiring" Soon

| Filed under: Music Minute

Lupe Fiasco recently announced that he's retiring and that his next album will be his last.

The final installment of the rapper's career - LupE.N.D. - is a three disc swan song, with each disc correlating to each letter of E.N.D.. The "E" stands for Everywhere, the "N" for Nowhere, and the "D" for Down Here.

He says that he just doesn't "really feel like rapping anymore."

Lupe reiterated those sentiments in concert recently (above).

Bummer!

  12. 12

    This sucks. It sucks even worse because not too many people realize how good he really is.

    I hope he pulls a Jay-Z.

    Hip hop needs Lupe.

    Hey mc2too dumb shit a lot of people like lupe.



  14. 14

    no!!!! i love lupe!!!



  15. 15

    People like mc2too who don't know about pop culture shouldn't look at this website



  16. 16

    OMG NO! This can't be true, it just can't. He is so good! People need to listen to his music, it's magical. Trust me, you'll fall in love.

    Lupe is fire. love fiasco. Download "Streets are on Fire", nice track. No don't go hip hop. We need you. Tired of soulja boy. We only have a few good artist left, who's next to retire Common?? What is he really going to do after rapping, acting? If he retires and ten yrs from now expects to comeback it most likely won't work. He needs to quit with the b.s. When is Mos Def making a new lp? Lupe don't quit just go outside and kick and push and think it over.

    man lupe is the truth!! his second album is so freakin hawt i just cant take it….i think when he says he doesnt feel like rapping hes saying that because not too many appreciates what he brings to the table….lupe is a true lyricist…which we have very few of…no baby dont do it!!….i'm sad



  20. 20

    Mmm, yes because it's such a hard job.



  21. 21

    perez anyone who is familiar w/ lupe knows this. but sad indeed.



  22. 22

    Lupe is not retiring completely he just is not making solo records anymore. He will still be on other projects and the CRS project. He will continue to tour and will record new songs to perform on tour.



  23. 23

    can't people "take a break" instead of retiring? cause we all know when he runs out of money he'll be making music again.



  24. 24

    This isnt really news…he's been saying this since before food&liquor



  25. 25

    he is not retiring completely just from making solo record. he will still tour and make new songs to perform on tour. he also has the CRS project and all the other FNF artist.



  26. 26

    OMG , NOOOOOOOO!
    he's one good thing that's happened in rap music!
    i guess we have to go back to listeing to shitty Lil' Wayne music =O



  27. 27

    man that blows. I just saw him in concert opening for Lil Wayne and he fuckin tore up the stage!!!! Dont quit Lupe, you ROCK!!!



  28. 28

    To all the idiots who do not know of Lupe, they do not know the beauty of hip-hop. what hip-hop and urban culture exemplifies. He is beyond the truth. He's the modern embodiment of hip-hop. Common, Mos Def, Talib Kweli, J Dilla, M.U.R.S. etc …. the list goes on and on. They're the true voices of hip-hop. Nov 12th FNF UP!!!!!



  29. 29

    His retirement isnt news, whats news is that he is trying to stretch his final album into three. Which I do think is kinda lame & gimicy, but I

    Re: sexyndacity – aww Streets on Fire is my fav track of Lupes



  31. 31

    Re: LizzieHead – Okay half my original comment is missing.. whatevs.

    Ya, anyway, its kinda gimicy to stretch that long promised final cd into three, but Lupe is so damn good that its a forgivable gimic since it means more of his hot tracks.

    The Cool has def been my fav album this year, I will be copping the next one the day it comes out.



  32. 32

    he's a bunch of bullshit for saying he doesn't feel like rapping anymore. before, he said that he just wanted to show his skills and it wasn't about fame and money for him. that's good if it's not about fame and money, but don't be like you don't feel like rapping anymore when you've been rapping forever and it's a big part of you. you just don't STOP rapping asshole.



  33. 33

    nooooo i am crushed!!! Lyrically he is a genius!

    Re: DropScience – Totally agree! Hip Hop is losing one of its most talented (but sadly most underated) stars.
    Lupe pleeeeeease dont!! Hip Hop needs you Bro

    Re: DropScience – Ps forgot to add I LOVE your avatar!!!
    Peace out ;-)

    Re: the otro me – OMG pleease help me! For AGES I've been trying to remember a Talib Kweli track. I know the album was Reflection Eternal, but can't remember the track name -all I remember is the video (on MTV) was set in pouring rain. If this stirs any memories please help!



  37. 37

    Re: mc2too – Go AWAY!!! Yes WE care!!!!!



  38. 38

    Yeah right. Once those sales start dropping off from his pass albums because we forgot about him. Guess what Lupe back from Retirement!
