One of yesterday's "wait...what?" stories came courtesy of Lupe Fiasco. And no, it wasn't related to another random appearance by the rapper on a political pundit's TV show. Dude decided to just up and leave Twitter after amassing some 723,000 followers, many of whom probably signed that damn petition to release (the superbly disappointing) Lasers. Lupe then handed his account over to singer Nikki Jean, who he kind of helped break a few years back when she appeared on The Cool's "Hip-Hop Saved My Life." She dropped her new album, Pennies in a Jar, yesterday, something you probably already know if you're still following Lupe.
You can read his final tweets below.
