Although Lupe Fiasco may have disappointed many fans by cancelling the Christmas mixtape Friend of the People, Hip Hop may still be in store of a fresh tape from the Chicago native on the way.

Alongside DJ Absolut, there will be a tape released featuring 12 unreleased songs within Fiasco’s career before he became the “Superstar” that he is today.

With no solid date set for the release, expect the upcoming project to be available by the top of the New Year.

Initially giving Lupe exposure in New York City through Hot 97 and over the mixtape circuit, Absolut will showcase some of the rapper’s work before he began launching 1st and 15th on Atlantic Records and was on Arista Records.

With the backfire of the unwelcomed leak of “I’m Beaming” and still no official release for Lasers, hopefully this will be able to hold fans over until Fiasco makes his much needed return and drops the album.
