Lupe Fiasco Hints At A Release Date For 'The Cool 2'
2015 will go down as a banner year for Lupe Fiasco, one in which he released a fantastic LP in Tetsuo & Youth, dropped inspired music videos and penned an eloquent article on ghostwriting in hip-hop. But it seems Lupe’s not done giving the fans what they really want. On Friday (December 18), the Chicago MC tweeted out what appears to be a forecasted release date for his highly-anticipated The Cool 2, which would serve as the proper follow up to his fantastic 2007 LP Lupe Fiasco’s The Cool, a record that still stands in the opinions of many as his finest, most fully-realized work to date.

Winter 2017 is a long ways away, but at least things appear to be moving. A ten year gap is quite a while to wait, but if it’s even half as great as the first Cool, we’ll be happy to exercise some patience.
