Lupe Fiasco is giving himself 24 hours to finish his new album. The album will only have 10 songs.

Lupe Fiasco has been feeling inspired lately. The rapper has been dropping a lot of music. He has released freestyles over iconic songs like Jadakiss and Styles P’s “We Gonna Make It”  and Jay Electronica’s “Exhibit C” while enjoying a verbal back-and-forth with friendemy Royce da 5’9″.

Now it looks like he wants to turn that freestyle energy into an actual album. Early Monday morning (August 9th) Lupe announced that he was going to do “an album from scratch in 24 hours.” At the time he tweeted that — 3:34 AM EST — the rapper had completed one song. 

He announced that he was coming with nine more.

A couple of hours later he tweeted “[eight] to go.” Then at 8:32 AM EST he had seven songs to complete. And then he went radio silent (so far.) But three songs in five hours means he’s making some really good time.

It’s been three years since Lupe has released an official album. That album was the double album epic Drogas Wave. But last year Lupe released two EPs: first there was the HOUSE EP with Kaelin Ellis, a project that came about after the two linked on Twitter. Then there was the TAPE TAPE EP, which was a reunion with his longtime collaborator Soundtrakk.

Next month, Lupe will celebrate his sophomore album, The Cool, by performing the album in its entirety at Chicago’s Riot Fest. That festival is happening September 16-18th at Douglass Park.
As for this album we will keep you updated as information gets passed along.
