So Hard to Say Goodbye: Rappers Who Threaten to Retire
Lupe Fiasco may be unplugging his mic for the last time soon. Or at least that's what he claimed recently in a series of tweets, seemingly written in response to a threat from fellow Chicago rapper Chief Keef. "This album will probably be my last," he wrote. "My heart is broken and I see no comfort further along this path only more pain. I cannot participate any longer in this...lupe fiasco ends here." This isn't the first time Lupe's talked retirement. Back in 2007, Lupe said he was “85 percent sure” he was retiring "soon." "My whole energy for making hip hop music is slowing down," he said. Four years later, he had his first No. 1 album, Lasers.
