*Sigh*

Anyone know when Lupe’s next album will be dropping?  A while back I heard rumors of a 3-disc finale that would be his final farewell to hip-hop.  Next I heard of 3 separate albums released by June of 2010.  Next I heard that the album scheduled for a June 2009 release will be finally hitting stores in December.  All the different names floating around has been giving me a headache, I don’t know which is what, what is where, or what the hell is in this mixed drink right now.From my research I’ve gathered; Lupe’s pissed off at his label, which is terrible news because I’m pretty sure shit’s the way it is right now because of the Atlantic/Lupe Fiasco fiasco.  I just hope some progress can be made soon.

Due to my fetish for great typography and film, I think anyone who shares these slightly weird (yet awesome) interests should check out this vid.  The song is “And He Gets The Girl” by Lupe and features N*E*R*D.

I originally drew out plans for a very large series of canvases featuring Lupe’s LupE.N.D. album inspired art coinciding with the release date….but, I think I may just sleep on it for a bit.  Despite holding off on that project for now, I felt the itch to do some artistic expression, at least on a smaller scale.  Hope ya’ll enjoy this, I’d like to do a bunch of these (not just of Lupe) so let me know if you’d like to see more!

lupe-lasers-portraitDue to the recent copy+pasting+printing+selling+promoting+straight up stealing some of my art, I’m not going to be posting up any high-resolution files like I did before.  Thanks to everyone who has contacted me about certain projects in a respectful manner, I really do appreciate it.

Peace!
