Im reading the April 2008 issue of XXL right now, and at first I thought maybe I was going crazy because I was noticing alot of things in the magazine pertaining to Lupe Fiasco. And then I actually had to stop, go back through the magazine and I realized that it wasn't just me and that the people over at XXL must really be feeling Lupe and his new album "The Cool."
I already knew that Gemstones was in the Show & Prove section of the magazine. But throughout the ENTIRE MAGAZINE, Lupe Fiasco is directly, discreetly and subliminally being mentioned in a bunch of sections. He is in the...
Negro Please section for his "Gangster Comment" he made in Entertainment Weekly a while ago.
Make Way Section where they joke about Child Rebel Soldiers, saying their album will be titled "Rebels with Scarves" with their lead single being "We Stay Fly (Maaalllin') HAHAHA
XXLMag.com where they show an online poll they did asking "Should Lupe Fiasco Retire after his next album," and 68% of people said No, Hip Hop Needs Him, and then the next highest percent was like Lupe Who?
Move the Crowd Section where they talk about his stage show at the Showbox in Seattle.
The Eye Candy Section is titled "Go Baby"
The cover article they did on Snoop Dogg is titled "The Coolest"
A section called "Back Up In This Bitch" which discusses West Coast rap, has segments in it titled "US Placers" and "Hi-Definition"
Another section called the The Show: Reign of the Tech that shows off some tech gagdets is titled "Go Go Gadget Flow"
I don't know what all this means, but after getting my Sherlock Holmes and now my Miss Cleo on for a second, Im predicting that we may be seeing a Lupe Fiasco XXL cover in the Future.
