Lupe Fiasco has challenged himself to create an entire 10-track album in 24 hours. The Chicago rapper took to Twitter last night to announce the ambitious project.

The rapper said he previously undertook the ambitious project years prior, mentioning the late Queens rapper Stack Bundles, who passed away in 2007. As an early supporter of Bundles, the rapper had been signed to Fiasco’s label 1st and 15th Productions and the duo even lived together at one point.

When Fiasco shared the news at 3:34 a.m. EDT, he had already created a song for the album. It appears the rapper is keeping a steady pace, following up with two more singles finished at 5:13 a.m. EDT and at 8:32 a.m. EDT.

While Fiasco hasn’t given fans any more information about the LP — such as a title or potential features — it’s likely that it falls under the genre of drill music. In a freestyle from last week, he rapped that his “next album’s gon’ sound like it’s drill music in Zion” over an instrumental version of Kendrick Lamar’s “Sing About Me, I’m Dying of Thirst.”

It’s unknown whether Fiasco plans to release the album to the public at all. His last project, an EP called TAPE TAPE, dropped in October and saw him link up with longtime collaborator Soundtrakk.
