Could Lupe Fiasco Be Leaving Rap To Front a Punk Band?

Lupe Fiasco Hosts A Night At Prive Las VegasRapper, Lupe Fiasco may be leaving the rap game. Fiasco who has hinted several times that he would soon retire, is still working on what he says will be his final album as a rapper, “LupE.N.D.”

After the release of this album, it is rumored that Fiasco will front the post-punk band, Japanese Cartoons, under the name Percival Fats.

Although some are saying that three songs on the band’s Myspace page sound as if Lupe Fiasco is singing in a forced English accent, the blogs on site deny that Fiasco is pat of the band.

A post on January 4 says: Percival Fats (born Percival Hindenburg-Fats) is not Lupe Fiasco (born Wasalu Muhammad Jaco). Although he is a dear friend.”

The blog continues: “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.”

I listened to both Lupe Fiasco and the Japanese Cartoons Myspace pages and it does sound like it could be the same singer.
