A Genius Lu' Volume 40


"It's like infinity, we already at where we finna be
meaning, let's make our hopes our memories
happily-ever-after, endlessly
You the President of Me & You industries
so let's drop Love Inc. on our enemies
recycle all their negative energies
then build, shake them haters off ministries
trust, God willing, they could be like us."

The Gorillaz got a couple of verses from Lupe Fiasco...


Earlier this week BBC Radio 1 broadcasted an interview that Zane Lowe did with the Gorillaz (Damon Albarn and Jamie Hewlett) before their Roundhouse gig in London.

Damon revealed that he got so much stuff and guest verses for the "Plastic Beach" album that it was really hard to narrow it all down...but it had to be done and unfortunately the verses they got from Lupe didn't make the album...

Damon said that they might put out some of the stuff that didn't make the album in the future though. So...yeah, I really hope that there'll be another B-Side album or something along those lines....we'll see...

Review: Lupe Fiasco @ The Warfield in San Francisco

via MercuryNews: The rapper born Wasalu Muhammad Jaco deserves a more fitting stage name than Lupe Fiasco. - Lupe Fantastic is more like it.

The 28-year-old rapper has long ranked as one of the best concert acts in hip-hop.

Local fans saw ample proof of that back in 2008, when he headlined the Fillmore in San Francisco in January and then, a few months later, stole the show as an opener on Kanye West's "Glow in the Dark Tour" stop at the HP Pavilion in San Jose.

In 2010, however, Fiasco has taken his game to a new, even higher, level....
