I usually leave this to Isodope, on account of that Lupe Fiasco is his favorite artist, but he’s asleep. So, I’m doing it. Here is some new tracks supposedly off Lupe’s last album. Check it out

Common is one of the most innovative, cultured rappers in popular rap today. In his early days he was known as Common Sense and stuck more to root type stuff, like back in the 80s. After his second release as Common he became more socially conscious in his raps and kept a political vibe in his raps ever since. He is currently touring in promotion of his upcoming album Invincible Summer, which was set to be release in late June but is now set to drop on September 22nd. Apparently, this will be a complete step away from his past works in their sense of social commentary and dark beats, taking a step towards more pop-radio-type electro influences beats and less deep lyrics.

“I created this music for the summer time, it’s about feeling good,” Common tells Billboard.com. “This is the type of music I felt was missing from my body of work.”

Common, luckily, is a consistently good rapper who seems to shine in almost all of his work, somewhat excluding his most recent release, 2007’s Finding Forever. However, it will be nice to hear a real rapper taking a shot at doing popular rap.

In terms of live performance, he will be performing at The Roseland Ballroom on Saturday, October 4th. While the tickets are somewhat pricey, at $50 a piece, Common is somewhat famous for his live shows. In addition, the opening act will be N*E*R*D. who are touring in promotion of their new album, Seeing Sounds. Sadly I have not heard the best things about N*E*R*D’s live performances nor am I too fond of the new record.
