When Lupe Fiasco, Kanye West and Pharell Williams formed the supergroup Child Rebel Soldiers (CRS) back in 2007, expectations were high that some very special music would come out of this union.
But here we sit over three years later and the trio has put out very little music aside from 2007's "Us Placers" and the recent G.O.O.D Driday track "Don't Stop" that Lupe says was actually recorded in 2008.
So what exactly is the hold up?
Lupe is pointing the finger at the new album by Jay-Z and Kanye West "Watch The Throne." as the main reason nothing signifigant is happening with CRS.
A new CRS album was supposed to see the light of day in 2010, but that obviously didn't happen. Now Lupe sounds he's starting to doubt there will ever be an album.
"I think the Jay-Z/Kanye collabo kinda was like, 'Aww man, aww no.' Whenever we get to go in (the studio) and have the time and the opportunity to do it, we're always working on some other project. Pharrell gon' do a soundtrack for a movie, Kanye does another project." Lupe said recently.
Hip hop fans can only hope new material surfaces soon for the supergroup.
As a fan what would you rather hear? A CRS album or the forthcoming Jay-Z Kanye disc?
