Like I previously told you, S-Preme is at Lupe's concert
in Chicago right now, and after we found out about
Lupe's live CD/DVD set, some minutes ago,

Lupe just announced that his
"lupEND" album will be a 3-Disc set !


He said:
"It ain't just gonna be one album,
there are going to be 3 ! It'll be a triple CD !"

CRAZY !!! That's like at least 30 tracks, right ?

Update:

The 3 discs will be called :

Everywhere

Nowhere

Down Here

and together they'll form "lupE.N.D."

Sounds like a cool concept !


Big props to S-Preme, the anonymous person in the comments

Yes, that's right, S-Preme is at Lu's concert in Chicago right now, he's sending me updates about what's going on via AIM, and he just found out that they are taping the concert (you can see one of the cameras in the video above) and it will be released as a Live CD/DVD set !


Of course there's no release date yet.
But I think it would be a nice christmas gift.

Happy Halloween !

Lupe Fiasco Fans - "Thoughts On Fire"

1 comment:



You might ask yourself: "What is this?"

Well, Yay had the idea to ask you, the fellow Lupe fans out there, to tell us and the world why you like Lupe Fiasco so much and what it is that makes him such a great artist to you. We want to do this as a weekly feature to give everyone a chance to voice their opinion about Lupe.


If you are interested to tell us what you think about him,
feel free to send a mail to: jeezy44@gmail.com


Here's the first "Thoughts On Fire" entry:

As a kid I really didn't like rap, I was purely old school old soul motown. Even to this day I prefer R&B and other genres of music to hip hop. HOWEVER, I'm a poet at heart. I love lyricism and I love artistry. Every so often a hip hop artist catches my ear and captivates my intellect and my affinity for words.

Lupe Fiasco, to me is the pinnacle of a lyricist. We don't need to go into the ridiculously sick catalogue right now. Anyway, basically I like lyrics, I like poetry and good lyrics in hip hop is pretty close to poetry (not to mention spoken word intros). Lupe is to me what hip hop should be…all about the lyrics. A sick beat is cool, but it isn't anything without lyrics.

An Inspiration….cuz I rap too (ironic, right? since my top 10 artists includes only 1 rapper). a Trendsetter and a Genius. That's what Lu is to moi.

What is Newborn Rodeo?

You could just go and read the definition here. The thing I like about the blog is, that they guy who runs it is really trying to put some effort in his posts. He's not just dropping a video or a song without saying anything, he's writing up his personal opinion to every entry and through that he makes his blog somewhat unique. His content includes the usual Hip Hop stuff but also fashion and things that go on in his personal life. If you are interested in that:


while I'm at it...I want to give a big shout-out to the good folks over at whoresneverlearn.com for taping Lu's Freestyle at the Voodoo Festival,

Throwback: KickED, PushED

No comments:


"First of all I'm on tour like crack on whore/Consistently, like black on poor..."

Wow. Listen to Somalian/Toronto artist K'naan rap over Lupe's beat about being physically assaulted in Sweden..



"Some of you may have heard or read about what happened in Sweden's Gothenburg. Where after the performance a bouncer wouldn't allow me to go backstage to collect my things, though I had my pass in hand. The story is deep, and Sol Guy (my friend and manager) ended up going to jail for the night in Sweden. And me and the band spent the night at the station waitin for him. While it was us who were disrespected and actually physically assaulted, it was also us who were betrayed, processed and reminded of the diseases in the human heart.

Fortunately, we were traveling with a camera and so we have some of those people and some of the situation on camera.Those of you who know my music know that I've never really written for leisure. And that my experiences have always been at the forefront of my music. And you must agree, rarely is life uneventful. But this one called for special presentation. So I wrote a song, using Lupe Fiasco's Kick Push instrumental. Documenting the experience we had in Sweden, I call this song... KickED PushED. We also put together a video for the song, using the ACTUAL footage from the scenario. Nothing is re-created, or re-enacted, everything that you see is REAL.

Enjoy it (it's hard to say that about this one)

Peace, K'naan. "

Vanderbilt Review: Lupe is Captivating

1 comment:


It seems like just being the opening act wasn't enough for the University.
As usual, Lu rocked the show with his crazy flips and thrills.


Quote from the article:
"His performance didn't feel like an opener. From the first song "Kick, Push" to the sold-out crowd chanting the chorus of his hit "Superstar" as he climbed up the speakers leaning on the ropes, Lupe captivated his audience. His energy carried all the way through to his finale, when he made hearts drop as the he laid down on the drum risers singing the intro to "Day Dreamin'." And when Lupe finally ran off stage, it was to the applause of thousands of students who seemed to be wanting more from the Chicago rapper. "

university's newspaper click HERE

Kanye West And Lupe Fiasco Live At Abbey Road Studios

4 comments:



I thought it's time to put up a nice throwback performance again.

When I first got the Late Registration DVD in '07, I didn't know that Kanye would have all those people on stage. So I was watching Touch the Sky and thought: "Hmm what happens to Lupe's part?"...but then, all of a sudden Lupe was up there on stage and it was pretty cool. Definitely a DVD worth buying. Talking about DVD's...Lupe needs to do one, too !

Lupe Fiasco's Superstar Jacket

5 comments:




I know a lot of people(including myself) would like to have this jacket. The thing is...it was custom made for Lupe by Dr. Romanelli and it doesn't seem like it will ever go on sale.

I got a mail from Demitri today. He reached out to some leather fabricating companies and if you have enough money you can get a custom made leather jacket that looks close to the one Lupe rocked in the video. The price tag would be around $2395.00 though.

So if you are totally crazy about this jacket..you can get a similar one.
If anyone is actually willing to spend that much on a jacket...let me know.

Details About Lupe Fiasco's Special Announcement

14 comments:

I guess you all know that Lupe Fiasco will make a special announcement on October 31st. When Lupe first mentioned this at the concert he gave for the Kent State University, the video of the speech wasn't complete so we haven't been able to hear everything he said.

mistermidwest216 from KanyeLive was at the concert and
says that Lupe said something like this:

"When I told people lupEND would be my last album, I also said it would be the greatest album ever. I am doing something completely new and different, that hasn't really been done before and it's something people wouldn't expect. On Halloween we gonna make a special announcement telling you what that kinda special thing is."

As soon as this announcement takes place we'll have it on here!
Make sure to check back in on Friday night !

Lupe Fiasco - Voodoo Festival: Inspired By Mick Jagger

No comments:


pic via RS Mag

Rapper Lupe Fiasco may have given the oddest dedication of Voodoo X: About three-quarters of the way through his afternoon concert at the PlayStation/Billboard.com stage, he declared he was dedicating the show to "this Rolling Stones documentary I watched last night."

Lupe, whose real name is Wasalu Muhammad Jaco, said he was inspired by Stones frontman Mick Jagger's tireless energy. He certainly sought to meet old-school Jagger's standard for stage acrobatics when he finished the show with a double backflip. The band rose to the occasion as well, with the two keyboardists jumping up and down with their T-shirts over their heads while still playing.

"Let the love shower over you!" Lupe shouted during a smooth, extended intro to "Superstar." "The love human beings have for each other, that keeps them from eating each other."

written by Molly Reid


The documentary Lupe talked about was probably
"Shine A Light" or "Gimme Shelter"

Artist Spotlight: G*Two - One Man Army Mixtape

5 comments:



Click the cover to download the mixtape !


Artist description:
When you pair a high level of artistry and skillful wordplay, the result is a fusion that explores and stretches the status quo of hip-hop itself. Eccentric in style and content, G*Two has the capability to deliver from the heart, over various ranges of instrumentals, into the ears of listeners and is steadily gaining a reputation for his undeniable talent.



This is his first mixtape and it's great.
Especially check out Drumroll, Maybach Music and Hold On.

"Hold On" is my favorite track.
Tell me which one's yours !

Lupe Fiasco and Lil Wayne At Vanderbilt - Report

3 comments:



Written by: TheWordBoy

I saw Lupe Fiasco and Lil Wayne on Thursday night (Vanderbilt Uni). Lil Wayne was the headlining act, but Lupe Fiasco was my reason for attending. I'm not a huge Wayne fan, and although I stayed for his whole set, I can't say my mind changed much. The opening act was Free Sol, who may actually have some good music, but whose set sucked as their bass was turned up way too effin' ear-splittingly loud, making it impossible to enjoy.

Anyhow, Lupe Fiasco brought it. I loved his set, and it made the night worthwhile despite the others. "Go Go Gadget Flow" sounds particularly amazing live. I just wish he'd had more time to perform. I did attempt to keep Lil Wayne's set as well, but not being as familiar with his shit, it's pretty spotty. Maybe someone can fill in the blanks. Free Sol I didn't even try to guess.

SUNY Geneseo Gets Ready For Lupe

No comments:


SUNY Geneseo is getting ready for their Lupe Fiasco Concert on Nov. 22nd. There's much preperation in getting ready for a megastar to grace the stage.

Quote: "Many complaints were voiced about how Geneseo always puts on a rock concert that tailored to a specific crowd and not the minority and never varied genres," Jennifer Lambe (concert coordinator) said. When selecting Lupe Fiasco as the fall concert, Lambe took those complaints into consideration. Lambe describes Lupe Fiasco as a smart hip-hop act that appeals to a wide variety of students.

One Week To Go !

11 comments:



One week till the big announcement.

I still wonder what it'll be. I thought about it and one thing that stuck in my mind is that he might be dropping an album before lupEND which is based on Streets On Fire and the whole "1984" novel. He talked about that in an interview and maybe he decided to do that now. There are so many things he could announce....in the end it'll probably be something no one thought about.

Is anyone attending that Chicago concert on Oct. 31?

Who knows if that's really happening but due to the involvement of Pharrell, the question is: "Will this affect a possible CRS release ?"

Well, I believe that if there's a CRS album/mixtape or whatever, they probably recorded it already and just wait for the right moment to put it out there. If that's not the case...I think we might won't hear anything new from them anytime soon. But then again, you never really know.
