Lupe Fiasco has always been a complicated, frustrating artist. His antics range from inspiring to irksome, but the Chicago rapper always seems to truly believe in what he’s doing, even if his fans don’t. But now even he may be tiring of his career’s constant push/pull, announcing he’ll most likely retire after the September 25 release of Food & Liquor II: The Great American Rap Album Pt. 1 (welp, so much for Part 2!). But Lu also threw his fans a bone by releasing the unfinished version of “American Terrorist, Pt. 2 (Superheroes).” Check out his message and hear the song after the jump.

As for the song, it starts quietly with a piano and light snare before exploding into a smothering dubstep beat with a hazy chorus buried underneath.

Do you think Lupe’s really going to hang up the mic? Let us know below, or by hitting us up on Facebook and Twitter.
