Lupe Fiasco Reveals ‘Food & Liquor 2’ Release Date

Lupe Fiasco fans will have to wait until the fall to get their hands on Food & Liquor 2: The Great American Rap Album Pt. 1. The Chicago rapper has announced a release date for the album.

The highly-anticipated sequel to 2006’s Food & Liquor is due September 25, he announced on Facebook.

The album features the single “Around My Way (Freedom Ain’t Free),” which ignited controversy for its sample of Pete Rock and CL Smooth’s 1992 classic “They Reminisce Over You (T.R.O.Y.).”

“It’s the Lupe Fiasco that I want to be without the industry constraints, without trying to please the hardcore fans or the new fans,” Lupe told Fuse. “It’s just me, what I would do for myself, if nobody every heard it. This is the kind of music that I would make. It’s a masterpiece.”
