Lupe Fiasco - "The Show Goes On" (OFFFICIAL VIDEO)

Lupe Fiasco's new track "The Show Goes On" is probably the best alternative Hip Hop track of 2010.  It's catchy and has cross over appeal, yet it's still Hip Hop to it's core with great lyrics and flow from my man Lupe.  If you're not listening to him at this point, you've got some problems or a really bad taste in music.  The kid has talent and puts out dope music on the regular. 

It was rumored that Fiasco was going to retire if he was allowed to release the triple album like he intended but that was squashed due to details of his record contract.  Hopefully that means he will be in the game for a long time because he would leave a huge hole in Hip Hop and the music scene as a whole if he was gone.  He's one of the few creative Hip Hop artists left.

Here's some more details about that rumor and his next album Lasers that comes from his Wikipedia page so take it with a grain of salt.  It sounds legit based on what I've heard in the past though:

"Fiasco was originally going to release his triple album, LupE.N.D. as his third and final record, but his contract with Atlantic Records prevented him from retiring with this agenda. He then postponed LupE.N.D. indefinitely and intended on releasing an album tentatively titled The Great American Rap Album in June 2009.  Instead, the album was also postponed and he announced a new album was in the works, originally titled We Are Lasers and then changed to LasersLasers is an acronym for "Love Always Shines, Everytime Remember 2 Smile". 

Lasers is finally scheduled to be released on March 8, 2011.
