Lupe Fiasco just dropped a pair of gloriously less-than-subtle hints at a forthcoming sequel to his 2007 classic album Lupe Fiasco's The Cool. "Be patient," Lupe tweeted on Sunday. "It's gonna be a while but we hard at work." Though Lupe's mentions quickly started to pile up with attempts at securing a confirmation on the tentatively titled The Cool 2, he quickly added that he would not be "taking any questions" regarding the possible album's status:
The original Cool successfully embodied the sonic diversity of Lupe's creative ethos, featuring (but never relying on) appearances as varied as Snoop Dogg and Fall Out Boy's Patrick Stump. Though often categorized as a "loose" concept album, its concept is never lost through the album's handful of semi-radio-friendly detours and narrative pauses. In short, The Cool is an obvious 00s classic and more than worthy of a comparable sequel:
Though Lupe's tweets certainly don't imply a release date for this sequel in the near future, they definitely confirm that something is indeed happening in the world of Cool.
