Video: House of Blues Host Booed By Crowd

| March 29, 2011 | 2 Comments

Wanted: The identity of this man.  Just curious who he was and how he was related to Saturday’s Lupe Fiasco Celebration at the House of Blues.  Was he the official host?  A promoter?  A man who walked off the street and into the venue by accident?  We may never know.  What I do know, is that when this man took to the stage to try and calm down an unruly crowd thirsty for Fiasco, and the people weren’t feeling him.  At all. I guess telling a group four hours deep into drinks to “call the fuck down” doesn’t always work the best. Couple that with claiming he was a Blackstone and you’ve got a situation on your hands.

Per usual, Bobby Rocwell was on hand with a camera to catch the tomfoolery.  There’s none better in the City when it comes to that, and you can quote me.

Lupe Fiasco x B.o.B. – Who Are You Now

From what I understand this is some sort of Lasers leftover.  I was actually very surprised Bobby Ray didn’t make Lasers in some capacity, but this explains it.  Love always shines, and leftovers always surface.  Any new Lu is always welcomed.
