Grammy-winning rapper Lupe Fiasco is going to make it a long 2017. The hip-hop veteran has announced plans to fall back on releasing another album before the ball drops.
Last night, Lupe went to Twitter to alert fans no more studio releases are coming but did promise to continue his live shows.
Last December, Fiasco announced plans to put out new content in 2017.
According to Reddit user u/connercmu, Lupe told fans at a Cleveland show that he would still planned to release DROGAS and DROGAS light in 2017. “At his Cleveland show tonight, Lupe said he had to put out one more album to release himself from the Atlantic contract,” the Reddit user wrote. “He said he could never fully give himself to an album while with Atlantic, so the real DROGAS will be released after a ‘lite’ version with Atlantic on February 10th.

Back in October 2016, Lupe explained how behind the scenes issues had stalled new music releases.
In July, Fiasco penned a detailed AF review of rap mogul JAY-Z‘s 4:44 album.
