Lupe Fiasco Confirms "Food & Liquor 2" Is A Double Album, Speaks On LP Cut "Form Follows Function"

Lupe Fiasco says the album's first single will arrive on May 22nd.

Lupe Fiasco recently revealed that he had completed recording tracks for his upcoming album Food & Liquor 2, the sequel to his 2006 debut. During an interview with FUSE, the Chicago, Illinois rapper confirmed plans to make the project a double-album and explained that while recording it, he wanted to get back to what made his first record such a hit amongst fans.

"Food & Liquor 2 is the follow-up, the sequel to my first album Food & Liquor. This is my fourth album, and this is actually a part one and part two, it’s a double album. With this record, I wanted to go back to the essence of what made that record so special, the frame of mind I was in when I did Food & Liquor the first time," he explained. "It’s the Lupe Fiasco I want to be, without the industry constraints, without the trying to please the hardcore fans or get the new fans. It’s just what I would do for myself if nobody ever heard it. This is the kind of music I would make. It’s a masterpiece. It’s real fucking good."

He also said that the album single will "hopefully" arrive on May 22nd. But he spoke to a particular song from the album, "Form Follows Function," explaining that it's one of his best songs and that "nobody's fucking with that."

"There’s a joint on there called ‘Form Follows Function’ that is a monster. It’s a monster. Nobody’s fucking with that, I just put that out there. Any other records I give other rappers and musicians, you could possibly do a better song than those. But ‘Form Follows Function,’ rappers ain’t fucking with that. That’s how good it is. I’m not being egotistical or anything. You just can’t fuck with that."

    he basically confirmed long before Lasers even dropped that F&LII will be different. only thing is now, being a double album, I expect the other half of the CD to be slightly dubstep oriented, or whatever that new sound he dealin with

    • dumptruk

      double albums are never a good idea it just means there will b a few good tracks on each cd but mostly a lot of trash. i am the king of hip hop,the wise one,the master. dumptruk

    • yasiin

      its notesaid its going to be what the hardcore lupe fans like its going to be rap period

  • iamhiphop

    Definitely gonna cop this album. Hopefully, the single won't sound like that Lasers crap.

    • Extraterrestheist

      Trust in Lupe, The Cool and Food and Liquor show what he is capable of. As well as the continued mixtapes that have continued to contain lyrical content. I am excited to hear this full album both parts and Forms Follows Function. Him doing what he wants rather than people pleasing will be him at his best. Hope gets that retirement he wanted
