Lupe Fiasco and Pharrell

Lupe Fiasco and Pharrell Ready Joint Album

The CRS album (Kanye West, Pharrell, and Lupe Fiasco) may be on indefinite hold, but two thirds of the group are moving forward with a new project. Lupe Fiasco revealed on his website that he and Pharrell are recording a joint album.

“LUPE AND PHARRELL ALBUM COMING SOON,” the Chicago MC wrote to his fans under the headline “Breaking News.”

In a previous interview with Rap-Up TV, he explained why the CRS album was derailed. “CRS is still tentatively unscheduled until me and Pharrell and Kanye can sit down and come up with a game plan and see if it’s something feasible within the near future or is it something that we should maybe think about putting the brakes to completely,” he said.

In addition to his collaboration with Pharrell, he’s also prepping Food & Liquor 2, the sequel to his 2006 album. “I’m not gonna make the same mistake that I did with Lasers,” he said of last year’s chart-topping set.
