Last December, Lupe Fiasco tweeted that he wasn’t going to make any more music or release any more records. Either he was baiting fans or he was stuck in a rut and momentarily blinded. Fortunately, he changed his mind and n February 9 he dropped his new album DROGAS Light.
Whether he’ll follow-up with any more records is unknown, but last night (Feb. 23) Fiasco plugged DROGAS Light with a striking performance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.
The rapper played the song “Jump” featuring Gizzle and proved why it would be a shame if he retired. Dressed in a fur coat, Fiasco half-jogged across the set spitting powerful rhymes while lights resembling those in a freeway tunnel zoomed by on a pair of screens. Gizzle joined him partway through and live musicians enhanced the excitement level of the production.
