Lupe Fiasco has released the stream to his long-awaited DROGAS Light album a day ahead of its street release.
Debuting first on Billboard, the album is the Chicago MC’s first independent release since leaving Atlantic Records and teasing retirement.
“While Drogas Light signifies the beginning of the end for Fiasco, it represents how far he’s come since he first entered the game and merely accents the intellectual breadth of the discography he’ll leave behind,” Fiasco’s team said in a statement.
DROGAS Light, the first in a series of three albums he’s expected to release this year, is made up of 14 tracks, including the singles “Made in the USA” and “Tranquillo” with Rick Ross and Big K.R.I.T.
The other two LPs planned for 2017 are Drogas and Skulls.

So Lupe Fiasco’s not done with music yet.
After announcing (another) retirement when his “N.E.R.D.” freestyle was deemed anti-semitic, the Chicago rapper shared the release date for his DROGAS Light album on Instagram today (December 24). The LP is set to drop February 10.
The project was supposed to be one of three — along with Drogas and Skulls — Fiasco wanted to release in 2016, but he said that clearance issues stopped him from sharing any of the music with his fans.
Lupe’s last full-length LP was Tetsuo & Youth, which dropped in January of 2015.
