Fiasco altered the release date of the album due to repeated song leaks. “Due to the leak we pushing up the album release date of DROGAS Wave to Friday September 21st,” he wrote on Twitter.
During a 2017 concert, Fiasco said that Drogas Wave will be a better listening experience than its predecessor, Drogas Light.
“DROGAS Light was almost like a compilation of old-ass songs that we had just kinda laying around,” he said. “Because I made a promise to myself … around like Lasers, I knew that there was gonna be some bullsh*t.”
“DROGAS Wave, which is the next album after DROGAS Light … I’m not even saying this to sell records and get you all hyped up,” he added. “I’ve heard sh*t. Sh*t is amazing. Sh*t is gonna be f*cking crazy. From DROGAS Wave on, you’ll be getting the fully complex, fully involved Lupe Fiasco. And the best thing about it is it’s already done.”
