Lupe Fiasco hinted that his supergroup CRS (Child Rebel Soldiers) with Kanye West and Pharrell Williams may release more than just an online mixtape. The rapper revealed the intention on working on a studio album but the challenge is to find a time among the super-busy solo artists.
"Now [our labels are] working it out," Lupe said as quoted on Billboard.com. "Whoever is going to pay is going to pay a whole hell of a lot. Everybody is excited, [but] 'Us Placers' is the only record we have." 'Us Placers' is a track by CRS that appears both online and on a mixtape by West titled 'Can't Tell Me Nothing: The Official Mixtape'. The group performed the tune in recent Lollapalooza Fest.
Meanwhile, Lupe's solo album 'The Cool' is being pushed from October 30 to November 20. It was understood to contain 'Us Placers' that Lupe previously described as "top secret". Beside sporting his most star-studded record, 'The Cool' may be one of the last efforts that he's going to have.
"I'm just wearing down," he said. "I'm never doing mixtapes again, not even Internet ones. My whole energy for making hip-hop music is slowing down. I've been doing it for seven years. I still don't think I'm famous. I'll do what I have to do to promote my next album, but I'm not enthused about doing seven albums. I'll do my three, and then I am going to keep moving to the next phase of life and maybe grow trees."
