Lupe stopped by SIRIUS XM's Hip-Hop Nation this afternoon and chopped it up with Nina 9. He talked about the All City Chess Club and how the whole thing started.

The first joint they'll drop is the "I'm Beamin" Remix (it's halfway done.) ...He also said it's not necessarily a group...it's more like a movement.

Lupe: "Blu is probably the only MC in the game that scares me."

Review: Lupe Fiasco @ HOB Dallas [04/27/10]

April 27th, 2010 - House of Blues - Dallas, TX - Photo courtesy of Kevin Todora

Review via DallasNews: Maybe it was technically B.o.B.'s day, but Lupe Fiasco owned the night on Tuesday at House of Blues.

Nothing against mixing things up, but too many highs and lows hurt the consistency of B.o.B.'s set. He could certainly learn a thing or two from Fiasco, whose headlining performance was a thriller that never lost momentum.

The headliner's backing band refreshingly stuck with hip-hop beats, although Fiasco's unre-lenting delivery on the mic recalled the urgency of punk. He's become a great showman over the years. Regardless of whether he gets as much love on pop radio as his opening act, he shined the brightest. Click HERE to read the full review!

Review: B.o.B x Lupe Fiasco x Jordin Sparks @ ETSU


B.o.B, Lupe and Jordin Sparks performed at the East Tennessee State University Center
in Johnson City, TN on Thursday, April 22nd. Haylee Bragg wrote a review of the concert for the EastTennessean...check a little excerpt of it below:


"While I accept Sparks performance as solid, the applause for the evening must be given to her opening acts. Going in, I knew relatively little about Lupe Fiasco and B.o.B.

I had heard a few of their mainstream hits and thought "Oh well, I'm sure it'll be a fun waste of a couple of hours." - I was wrong.

From my horrific assigned seat where I could barely even see the stage, I saw two men with genuine potential to reform and empower today's declining hip hop culture.

B.o.B and Fiasco delivered politically charged and realistic rhymes that instantly clicked with the listener..." - Click HERE to read the full review!

Carter attended Lupe's concert in Charlotte, NC on Friday and put up a little review of it on his blog...check a little excerpt below:

"If I wrote about the whole show we'd be here all night, so here's my quick "summary"...Lupe is an AMAZING performer. The booming drums and roaring guitars mixed with Lupe's rock-esque energy made one feel like they were at a rock concert."

"My favorite song of the night was probably "Hip-Hop Saved My Life", a song that made the stadium go nuts with excitement, and set the tone for the rest of the night. All in all, the show was AMAZING, and only made me more anxious for the release of Lasers... So, if you have the opportunity to catch Lupe and B.o.B on the Steppin Laser Tour, I BEG you to go see it."

Lasers Update!

This comes straight from the Charlotte, NC show, Lupe announced that we will get a release date for Lasers next week! ...Happy?

UPDATE - Hannah: "Ok, just to clarify... Lupe said after days, weeks of arguing with Atlantic "I have good news, as of yesterday, I'll have a release date for Lasers next week". When the crowd went crazy, he followed it up by saying "maybe not an exact date, but at least a week or a month".

Despite what he said after his announcement, it's still good news. At least we'll have some kind of idea when Lasers will drop next week."

Lupe Fiasco is a [motherfuckin'] Rock Star...but he raps


B.o.B in an interview w/ AllHipHop: "Lupe is a rock star. I’ve done several shows with him. Usually I gotta do interviews and such after the show – and I never really get a chance to soak it up. But I watched the whole show last night. And it was like rock – it was like he’s a rock star but he raps." - RockStarLu... like I said...

Review: Lupe Fiasco @ The Peoria Civic Center [Peoria, IL]


It wouldn’t hurt Peoria to host more hip-hop shows - especially those that include the caliber of artists that played the Civic Center Theater on Tuesday night.

Review: Lupe Fiasco @ the Midland Theatre in Kansas City


Lupe performed at the Midland Theatre in Kansas City, MO yesterday and Back To Rockville put up a review of the show. Check it below.


Chicago rapper Lupe Fiasco’s Kansas City debut promised to touch the sky, but left many fans hanging in midair. While Fiasco’s 65-minute set was strong, the lack of an encore left the brief evening seeking resolution.

As his guitar player noodled a riff reminiscent of “Sweet Child O' Mine,” Fiasco launched into “Shining Down,” a song he released as a online single last year.

A handful of similarly low-profile or unreleased cuts were sprinkled throughout the set. It has been three years since Fiasco’s last release, and the crowd happily embraced the new material... Click HERE to read more.
