I got some interesting news. Apparently, Lupe Fiasco is going to get the french duo Justice (who are best know for the song D.A.N.C.E.) to remix his latest album "The Cool".
Lupe Fiasco recently caught up with our very own News Presenter Rickie when he hit London and was overflowing with enthusiasm about his latest projects.
Alongside a "ridiculous" remix of his new single ‘Paris, Tokyo’, Lupe also told Rickie that a certain French electronic duo are remixing his new album: "I’m remixing the album with Justice, I’m gonna shout out to Justice".
Justice have had massive club hits with D.A.N.C.E and more recently DVNO.
That wasn’t the only surprise The Coolest rapper dropped, he told Rickie that he’s a massive UK music fan.
Lupe’s latest album The Cool features British artist Unkle: "I worked with Unkle on a song called Hello, Goodbye and (they) introduced me to a lot of UK artists". - MTV UK
Hip Hop is evolving and I think it is a great thing for Hip Hop. I know some Hip hop purists might not think this hip hop (see DJ Rock Dee's post of a video interview of KRS-ONE). First off, Hip Hop is not a pure form of music it is a hybrid. Hip Hop does not have a certain sound but a spirit and an expression of honesty. If what Lupe is doing is not Hip Hop, neither is Afrika Bambaataa.
