Lupe Fiasco For Converse @ Saint Alfred





This sunday - St. Alfred

"Blind Fury" coming soon?


Mickey and Lupe?

Listen to this track:



"We need to collab and get a track called "Blind Fury"


After this pic, maybe we'll get that soon...lol

GLC - Take Me Out Feat. Shayla G (Prod. By Kanye West)



I took this track from a new mixtape which was compiled by Artutabr and Dani_46. It features a bunch of rare, lost and unreleased gems from Kanye West and it's called "The Lost Songs". You can get it here.

Now let me talk a bit about the GLC/Shayla G track. I think that I heard it for the first time today, it's pretty dope and you should definitely check it out !


Kanye and T-Pain - Flight School Remix feat. S-Preme




You got to have some balls if you jump on one of Kanye's tracks because people are going to compare you with him. However, on this track S-Preme definitely doesn't disappoint and delivers one of his best lyrical efforts to date. Good to see that he's able to mess with the big names. Check his metaphors and his wordplay.

Fall Of Rome x NIKE Air Force 1 - "AFIV"




First images of the black version of those Air Force 1's appeared online back in June '08. Now there's a white pair, too and it seems like they could get a release date soon.

"Lupe Fiasco’s F.O.R teamed up with Nike on a pack of Air Force 1’s. The pack consists of a white and black colorway, coming in a mix of leather and patent leather and both featuring a gold Swoosh and tags. No word on a release date so far."

They were first labeled as "Trilly & Truly" but Lupe just made the following statement on the FNF Army page:

Lupe: These Are Not Trilly & Truly...sorry bout the mix up...4 Pair Of Each Color...$2,000 A Pair...Coming Soon...

"Nihon Town" is Amajanese


Click the image !


Crazy! This is the ultimate mashup illustration created by Ken Taya who mashed US and Japanese pop culture icons in this piece (he also designed some parts of Halo 3 and other games).

It's called "Nihon Town" and features Tokyo Plastic, Danny Choo aka Tokyo Dance Trooper, Obey Giant/Andre the Giant, Doraemon/Garfield, Noodle(Gorillaz), the Astro Boy with Mickey Mouse ears, Budweiser & Yebisu, the Bape logo and NHK’s mascot "Domo Kun" + many more pop-icons.


Oh man, I love this. This is Amajanese on the highest level.

Trilly & Truly - Lightning Gave Them Life




In his latest blog entry, Le Messie explained where the T&T logo came from:

Lupe’s more accessible lil sibling brand Trilly & Truly has been making it’s rounds everywhere and I’m honoured that an old logo of mine from an old brand project (remember C.O.R Children Of the Revolution) is the main brand identity used as it’s face! It’s called the “Law” logo and Lupe knighted it with the quote lightning gave them life”.

DJ Yoda feat. Lupe and Others - Colorful Clothes



You probably heard this one already...isn't it kinda uncool to put an old verse
from someone's song on your track and then call it "Brand New"?
I'd say that's it's a new mix or something.

Check Emily King's "Walk In My Shoes" feat. Lupe right here.
That's the song Yoda took Lupe's verse from.

Video: Kanye West - "Welcome To Heartbreak"



This is the official video for the song.
"Welcome to Heartbreak" is NOT the next single though.

I have to say that this dude Nabil Elderkin is a very dope video director, he directed the videos for Black Eyed Peas' "Like That", Kanye's "Champion", Will I Am's "She's A Star" and a few more. All of them have been super creative but this one definitely tops the previous ones...and hey, Cudi is in there, too...
Very cool !

Lupe Fiasco is set to Perform @ The University of New Hampshire



SCOPE officially announced Monday night that the highly acclaimed rap artist Lupe Fiasco will be kick-pushing his way into Durham and onto the Field House stage Saturday, May 2.

Tickets for the spring show will go on sale Tuesday, Feb. 24 at 10 a.m. in the MUB Ticket Office. Tickets will be $15 for undergraduate students and $35 for non-students.

Awsmazing



This dude Ebrahim just created this great track right on the spot and he only used beatboxing and a few piano chords.

He mashed up the vocals of D’Angelo’s “Lady,” Lupe Fiasco’s “Paris, Tokyo” and Joni Mitchell’s “Got ‘Til It’s Gone.”


Lupe Fiasco: Some Folks Dress Better Than Kanye




Kanye West made a stir both when he said he takes fashion inspiration from gay people, and when he backtracked on that statement this month by saying, "That's when I was ignorant to gays. 'Cause there's a lot of gay people who don't dress good at all. There's a lot of gay people that I dress way better than."

Backstage at the Y-3 show, his friend and frequent collaborator Lupe Fiasco backed him up. "It's true!" said Lupe (who, incidentally, is waiting to talk to former tour-mate Chris Brown "until all this nonsense boils over").

"What do you want me to say?" Lupe acknowledged that Kanye doesn't dress better than EVERY minority group. "Japanese people and people from Paris have the best style. They can beat Kanye hands down. That’s where we get it from," he said. But he did think Kanye has the style edge on most of his fellow rappers. Said Lupe, "He definitely dresses better than me."


Happy Birthday Lupe !



The whole lupEND blog team want's to wish you a happy birthday and continued success in the future! We hope that you have a good one and many more to come. Stay healthy and keep up the good work!

...and enjoy the video!
