Artist: Lupe Fiasco
Producer: 1500 or Nothin'
Avg Rating: 4.4 ( 23 total votes )
The road to a new Lupe Fiasco album is never smooth, and sure enough the lead up to Lupe’s upcoming Food & Liquor II album has been filled with more twists and turns then a Six Flags. But despite the controversies and complications, now that F&L II is only days away, Lupe only wants one last thing from us; to Put ‘Em Up.
