Last time I posted Lupe’s mysterious post punk project that is Japanese Cartoon, I said I think it is better than some of Lupe’s hip hop. Some people were enraged by that. I didn’t mean it to put down Lupe’s hip hop, but more to speak on the quality of JC, which caught me off guard. As someone who isn’t into Lupe as an emcee, and who has different musical tastes than him, I thought there was no way that I’d be into this. But it’s tight. Check out the title track from the upcoming album.
In other news, do you think Lupe is the vocalist? The band has denied it:
Percival Fats (born Percival Hindenburg-Fats) is NOT Lupe Fiasco (born Wasalu Muhammad Jaco). Although he is a dear friend. Lupe does finance the band but is not, I repeat, not, the singer in Japanese Cartoon. He is, however, the producer and we value his participation very much.
