Lupe Fiasco releases his new album Drogas Wave. The album drops one week ahead of the previously announced release date. Drogas Wave is Lupe Fiasco’s seventh studio album and includes collaborations with Damian Marley, singer-songwriter Nikki Jean, Crystal Torres, Troi Irons, SimonSayz, Elena, Bishop Edgar Jackson. The project follows Drogas Light, released in 2017.

Drogas Wave is based on a story about a group of slaves that jumped off of a slave ship transporting them from Africa,” explained Lupe. Adding, “The slaves did not drown, and instead somehow managed to live under the sea. They spent the rest of their underwater existence sinking slave ships. ‘Drogas’ is the Spanish word for drugs. I made it an acronym which stands for ‘Don’t Ruin Us God Said.’”
