Last week, Lupe Fiasco and Google exec Di-ann Eisnor launched Neighborhood Start Fund in search of entrepreneurs in areas overlooked by Silicon Valley Investors. He also dropped a new song on his website called “Pick Up The Phone” last month. There’s a great piece on DJ Booth dissecting the marketing approach that’s absolutely worth reading. The track sounds like it could’ve been on either Lasers or perhaps the alternate version of Tetsuo & Youth. Both albums have two of the wildest backstories in Hip Hop history. This week we break down the improbable circumstances that lead to the release of two of Lu’s outlier LPs.
