When Lupe Fiasco announced his retirement from music industry earlier this year, it was not intended for a full one. The rapper has told the press that he will quit spawning studio albums but will not give up performing on stage completely. In a statement, the hitmaker whose real name is Wasalu Muhammad Jaco said, "I'll keep performing but I doubt if I'll make any more albums."

The upcoming album "LupEnd" will be his third and last before he moves on becoming a literature figure. He announced in January, "I've been doing this music hustle for eights years and have more things I still want to do. There are other ways besides putting out an album that allow me to channel my creative energy and I'm writing a book about a window washer. I will have more than enough to keep me busy."

"LupEnd" is scheduled to hit the stores in 2009. Speaking on the naming of the new album, he said, "'LupEND' - that's going to be my last album's title. When you play a video game, you can only put in three letters for your name and when the game's over, those three letters and 'END' pop up."

Beside as a solo artist, Lupe is a part of supergroup Child Rebel Soldier that he formed with Kanye West and Pharrell Williams. The group reportedly will release a self-titled album sometime this year.
