Lupe Fiasco's new album was supposed to be his last. After all, he left his previous effort by saying he had "one more to go, L.U.P.End." Now, it seems there's a lot more coming from Fiasco and he recently spoke about this in an interview with MTV.
After being left off the network's "Hottest" list, Lupe noted that he was out to prove a point.
"The last six months, it's been like, 'I gotta really, really go out there and show that I'm nicer than all of them,' " he said. "It's like, 'Alright, so be it. If it takes three more albums to do it, then so be it.' That's what I got left with Atlantic. Three more after Lasers. I'm already done with two. The mixtape is coming Thanksgiving. It'll be another mixtape after that and an album after that. It's really to get that status and lock it in and [and have people] be like, 'Look at this positive dude, the underdog. The positive one who came and murdered all these dudes. And he's there, and he's good.'"
Adding to his hunger, he said he's ready to become the best in any category of emceeing.
"I'm finnin' to house every single mode and arena I can get into. If y'all had somewhere where it's live performances, I'm finnin to have the best live performances. If it's mixtapes, I'm finnin' to have the best mixtapes. If it's albums again, it's gonna be the best verse. If it's the best dressed, I'm going hard as well."
He went on to say this mixtape will feature instrumentals used by others.
He said he doesn't have a title for the tape just yet. Earlier this year, we also reported on his appearence in The People Speak, a documentary that will be shown on The History Channel.
