Tag: Lupe Fiasco
This weekend at a concert at the University of Cincinnati, Lupe Fiasco stopped his set to verbally lay the smack down on a concert goer who tossed a glow stick at his head. And right before “Kick Push” at that. In the words of Rodney Dangerfield: “No respect, no respect.”
But before getting back to his regularly scheduled program, Lu warned the crowd that he had four black belts, and wasn’t opposed to beating the brakes off the perpetrator. Hey gave you fair warning, beware.
“Listen, hold up two seconds we’ll get back to the show, listen. I know you a jerk and that’s cool. I know that you came hear and you thought that I’ma get some shine real quick and throw some shit at Lupe and hit him in the face. But, let me remind you of something, okay? Hold on ya’ll, just hold on we gonna get back to the show, we gonna get to “Kick, Push”…You see this waist? This waist right here? There used to be four black belts around this waist.
So listen. Everybody that wanna throw some shit, kindly step over to the side of the stage, and I’ll give you five minutes of fame here.”
Recently, Lupe Fiasco spoke to St. Sabina Church at the request of Father Pfleger. Lupe spoke to a packed house about religion, transformation, the importance of God and making the right life decisions.
There are six parts to this Lupe speech, and it clocks in at just over 72 minutes. Spend some time with it.
Something new from Lu, dedicated to 6-month old Jonylah Watkins who tragically died earlier this week.
She lives as long as we do. She will live forever. God bless your soul and the family you left behind. We Love You.
Not a song but a life. Be respectful Please keep negative comments to yourself.
Lupe surprised everyone in attendance at the SXSW Fast Company Grill and hit the stage last night to perform “The Show Goes On”.
Spotted at LupEND.

Just when you thought Lupe was on permanent vacation, he mysteriously returned to his Twitter early this morning, dropped this song, deleted it, then dipped. Luckily Sean was on hand to grab.
DONT MIND ME….JUST STAYING IN SHAPE…JUST PRACTICE…LIKE A PIANO PLAYER OR A GYMNAST. Not on T&Y…So pls dont Say It Is on your blog. Thanx.
So for the record, this is NOT on Tetsuo & Youth.
Last night, Lupe hit the stage at The Fillmore in Silver Spring, Maryland and performed Food & Liquor 2 in its entirety. Up top, you can catch Lu performing “ITAL” and “Around My Way”.
Lu also took some time to get a few things off of his chest. Check what he had to say below. Props to LupEND for the assist.
Official artwork for Lu’s “ROTHKO (Yet For Computers)”, which drops tomorrow.
Shouts to Sean for the heads up.
Lupe and Guy showed off their war wounds last night on the Conan show. Need evidence? Watch the video above. These “Battle Scars” were drama free last night.
While everyone in the Twittersphere was talking about Lupe’s skeletoe ninja footies, Lu was busy hitting the red carpet and breaking news of his own. Since Food & Liquor 2 Part 2 is now a wrap, Lupe has decided to embark on a new album, one that’s he’s titling Tetsuo & Youth. Not much info is given on what exactly Tetsuo & Youth means, and a quick google searched turned up nothing but a goose egg. I guess we’ll have to wait and see.
As you may or may not know, Chicago raptivist, Lupe Fiasco, is a sometimes-columnist for the Chicago Sun-Times, who dedicates his salary to his Lupe Fiasco Foundation. So far in Lupe’s writings, he’s touched on a whole slew of topics (including buildings turning into robots), but today he discussed his favorite artist, Hebru Brantley. But instead of just gushing over his work, Lu put a different spin on his love for Bru. He paints the painter as a fighter of evil who decapitates his victims by upping their heads on a wall. You confused? Well, you need to read it to understand:
My father expressed to me as a youngin’ the existence of a trio of beings who were to be looked out for with great vigilance and concern: The Gym Shoe Creeper, The Wahoo Man and The Green Man.
These unsavory characters were (and are!) rumored to stalk the city of Chicago, wreaking havoc and striking terror in the ghettos and the not-so-ghettos alike. Now, whether these figures are real or not is irrelevant; the fact is that they indeed are real.
Moving on. Word on the street is that there is a new guy lurking around the city with a penchant for beheading things. He takes the lopped-off heads, paints them, then mounts them to walls for others to see. His weapon of choice is not a messy ax nor a vulgar chainsaw but that debonair gentleman of head removal: the guillotine. Well, that’s what I believe it to be anyway. It seems more visceral and engaging: The image of a tall, soft-spoken psychopath pulling a full-blooded guillotine through the streets and alleys of the city of big shoulders, looking for the perfect victim to join his ever-growing gallery of trophies. And what fine trophies they are.
