Lupe recently did an interview with MTV and announced that he will be dropping a new mixtape on Thanksgiving night. Lupe explains that he was inspired by MTV’s Hottest MC list and says:
“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. It’s like, ‘All right, 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.’ “
“I’m finnin’ to house every single mode and arena I can get into,” Fiasco promised. “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.”
The mixtape is untitled as of now, but Lupe’s “been dabbling with some names.”
The mixtape is set to drop on Thanksgiving night, so make sure you check back with iHipHop for the download.
