To feel no pain and hear no tongue,

Lupe Fiasco's Lasers Update


(props to Miguel for the pic)


I just got back from the Lupe show at the Chicago Theatre and it was dope like always. Just wanted to hit yall with some good news, seem's like we will get another 4th quarter Lupe Fiasco release!

That's right... Lupe Fiasco's Lasers drops this December, and this date seems a lot more possible than anything earlier....so get excited!!

There was also a Michael Jackson tribute and Lupe performed Shining Down. At the end he played a snippet of Army Girl and I'm sure that some videos will surface on the internet within the next day or two....so stay tuned!


~RIP Michael Jackson~

Exciting! Her album will be awesome.

Video: Michael Jackson - Don't Stop 'Til You Get Enough




Keep On With The Force Don't Stop
Don't Stop 'Til You Get Enough

R.I.P. Michael Jackson




It's been talked about everywhere and I thought it was worth a mention here. I'm sure you all know by now that the King of Pop passed away. I know this isn't Lupe related, but I thought we could all show and pay our respect.


Update:

Lupe said the following to MTV: "I'm hurt, but I'm celebrating his life and his music. Dancing and crying and dancing in public. Holding heart-to-heart conversations with complete strangers about one of the things, if not the only thing, we share in common, That Is The Legendary MoonWalker Himself.

A white guy in a pickup truck pulled alongside me on the expressway and shouted to me, had I heard about Mike?!? It's surreal and it's everywhere!!! Every time I feel like getting sad, one of his songs comes on, and I'm just filled with happiness and start singing and smiling.

He was the best to ever do it. Salaams, Peace & Blessings. May Allah have mercy on his soul. We Love You MJ!!!"



Michael, you'll never be forgotten.

Lupe Fiasco Concert in Chicago - No longer Free/Outdoors




Last month it was announced that Lupe would play a free concert in conjunction with the Nike 6.0 BMX Open in Chicago on June 26th. Well, things have changed since then.....

The event has been moved from Grant Park to the Chicago Theatre, in an effort to avoid overlapping with the Taste of Chicago music stage. More importantly, the show now costs $20, instead of being free (tickets are available starting today at the Chicago Theatre box office or via Ticketmaster)

Also, Lady Sovereign has been added to the bill. She'll perform at 9:30 p.m. and Lupe will go on at 10:15p.m. Doors open at 8:30 p.m.
