Is Lupe Fiasco retiring from rap?


Rapper Lupe Fiasco has alluded that his next album is likely to be his last. The "Superstar" hitmaker, real name Wasalu Muhammad Jaco, went on Twitter to announce that his upcoming disc, "Lupe Fiasco's Food & Liquor II: The Great American Rap Album Pt. 1," could be his final release.

In a series of posts, he writes, "I have spoken peace only 2 (to) receive vitriol and malice in return. My brother seeks destruction my sister seeks attention... paths to nothingness. This album will probably be my last... it's been a pleasure to have all my fans provide so much love an (and) inspiration for me and my family... but my heart is broken and I see no comfort further along this path only more pain. I cannot participate any longer in this... My first true love was literature so I will return to that... lupe fiasco ends here..."

Fiasco's announcement comes amid reports of a feud with fellow Chicago MC Chief Keef, who he criticized when discussing crime in their hometown.

He said in a radio interview last week, "Chief Keef scares me. Not him specifically, but just the culture that he represents. ... The murder rate in Chicago is skyrocketing and you see who's doing it and perpetrating it, they all look like Chief Keef."

Keef hit back on Twitter by threatening to "smack" the hip-hop star.

Can we get Jay-Z, Lil Wayne, and Kanye to go away to? Or is that too much to ask?

Can't we all just get along.!  Why do you have to go against each other in public.....or at all for that matter?  Why can't I be the one who is against the direction that society is going in without being chastised for it ?  Why can't I try to make it take a turn for the better without being labeled as a trader or a dork?  Why can't I be the smartest kid in the city school without being beat up for it?  I understand wanting to hold on to all that is us in the U.S. we love our music,our food our culture period .  But it is time for these public presentations of disdain for each other to stop.  Everyone is not going to like everyone but does everyone need to know it?  It's all becoming quite boring  at this point.  Wrap it up.
