The Case: Going into 2009, Lupe Fiasco became an underground legend of sorts. With two critically acclaimed and rap blog approved albums under his belt, Chi-Town’s nerd with swag promised a final three disc opus. As time progressed, Lupe continued to change his plans and sight problems with his recording home Atlantic Records as the main source for the album’s delay.
The Verdict: With a sole mixtape release last November (Enemy of the State), Lupe stans continue to wait on a full length album going on 3 years. Now twitter rants about rap blogs contributing to the unauthorized piracy and label politics continuing to delay his now shortened, single disc album. In reality, his reluctant behavior has transformed Lupe into the rap version of the Boy Who Cried Wolf.
