Lupe Fiasco is putting the finishing touches on his new album, “The Cool,” set to drop on December 18. After this album he plans on working on his last and final album, tentatively titled “L-U-P-End.” In a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly he says he pretty sure he’s done making music after his third album but plans to continue writing.
“I’m writing my book! It’s tentatively titled Reflections of a Window-Washer,” Lupe told EW. “It’s about this character who has limited amount of conversation with the world. But he has simulated conversations, as if he had ever went past saying to someone, ‘Hi.’ It’s a real cerebral kind of piece. I’ve got maybe just a few chapters. They published one of the chapterettes in a magazine in London, where [the character] sits and ponders the notion, the physics, the ideals, the commercialization of the future.”
Looks like Lupe won’t be dumbing it down anytime soon. Look for the book and possible future novels to be written by his real name, Wasalu Muhammad Jaco. There’s no set date for the book to be released.
