“I’m looking forward to going back on the road and sharing the new music I’ve been working on with my fans,” Lupe said in a recent press release. “This will be just a taste of Tetsuo and Youth.”

We’ll hold you to your word, Lupe!

Ed Sheeran Is A Fan Of Lupe Fiasco’s

The two have already started working in the studio together and it sounds like Lupe is keeping Ed busy!

“We have the same A&R in America … and, he just gave me about seven beats and said write choruses to all of these beats,” Ed said via   “I’m a massive Lupe Fiasco fan, so it’s cool.”

Great music is definetely on the rise, and we cannot wait to hear what these two have in store for us!
