Lupe Fiasco Takes Inspiration From Jay-Z and Kanye West for his new Album Jayzus


Rapper/Activist Lupe Fiasco made an announcement regarding his new album yesterday, saying he’s working on another new project, Peace Of Paper/Cup Of Jayzus, which will apparently be released September 13. It seems the “God-like” antics of Jay-Z and Kanye West have inspired Lupe behind his new project.

The Chicago rapper announced a change to his future releases in February. Lupe was working on Food & Liquor 2: The Great American Rap Album Pt 2, but switched to a new project, Tetsuo & Youth. After the 2013 Grammy Awards, a member from Lupe’s camp tweeted the message, “Hello. #LF is happy to announce his album title for 2013. ‘TETSUO & YOUTH’ We Wish You Good Luck @ #TheGrammies Today. Thank You.”

The title of the new project seems to take inspiration from Kanye West’s Yeezus and Jay Z’s Magna Carta Holy Grail. 

Along with the project announcement, Lupe Fiasco released a series of notes, which, may be lyrics from the future release. There is no word yet if Peace Of Paper/Cup Of Jayzus is a mixtape or retail release, and whether or not POP/COJ will replace Tetsuo & Youth.

Check out the lyrics Lupe released on Sunday.
