Prior to, Lupe had said that they were not supportive of the project because they didn’t have a “pop” single. The tweet was eventually deleted.
“ATLANTIC RECORDS won’t release the album until they get a “pop” single…so putting together a mini-project while they find one for me. It’s called “Lost In The Atlantic Ocean” with a bunch of my friends to stay active and happy…this a snippet called “Lilies” feat Sirah produced by The Buchannons…finishing today…”
The Chi Town grio is expected to release the Lost In The Atlantic Ocean EP before Tetsuo and Youth. No date of release has been announced.
