Most know @LupeFiasco as the best in Tha rap game... What u may not know is he is downright dangerous in the kitchen! Lu, stopped by a blessed me and my friends with some truffle infused pasta and bruschetta that I would drop $50 on in a restaurant anytime!
If @LupeFiasco ever wants to lay down the mike for a minute to open a restaurant, it will be where u NEED 2 B #trust!
Yo, I'm hungry now!
2. ”Football or volley-b, hock-el-y or socc-el-y/You just get the rock to me/Try and put me down like Gaddafi over Lockerbie/I’ll lock you in a locker, b/Like Bruce Leroy locked Johnny in a locker, see” — Lupe Fiasco, “Put Em Up” lyrics
Lupe Fiasco gave us one of the year’s trilogy of Occupy-influenced rap masterpieces (for more on the other two, albums by The Coup and Brother Ali, see above). But his finest moment occurred nearly apart from politics altogether.
The “Lockerbie” and “locker, b” homophones literally stopped us in our tracks the first time we heard it. And the second. And the third. It wasn’t until way later that we realized he continued the joke by alphabetically going from “locker, b” to “locker, see [c].” Moments like this showed that this record’s The Great American Rap Album subtitle was not really an exaggeration.

I'm looking forward to what's next.
Lupe's version of the Vans OTW Stovepipe is here! He choose to give the shoe premium full grain black leather in combination with a native print on the inner sole and the tongue. The result is a very good looking sneaker which is now available at select OTW retailers.
Check out Lupe's design notes and a few pics below!

The 2013 NAACP Image Awards nominees have just been announced and Lupe is up for one in the category Male Artist and and another one in the category Duo/Group Collaboration for "Battle Scars" w/ Guy Sebastian.

YN makes some valid points on who should win the Grammy for Best Rap album. Obviously our fingers are crossed for Lupe though.
According to Lupe's lawyer, he and Guy will perform on Late Night w/ Jimmy Fallon on January 2nd 2013. Tune in to NBC on 12:35am EST.
The ceremony will take place on Sunday, February 10th at the Staples Center in LA.
Nikki is gearing up to release a special Holiday EP with her friend and producer MIC THE DRUMS, one half of the group Kidz In The Hall, later this week. It'll feature "Classics" with a twist. Also you can expect a bunch of new music from her to be released throughout next year.
Stay tuned for more info's and don't forget to back her Kickstarter campaign!

Lupe talks to KC Chopz about what he'll do after his contract is up. How he did not sign with Roc-A-Fella or G.O.O.D. and never will. Compares Kanye and Pharrell's production game and talks about how the internet and the accessibility people have to music these days gave music with less substance a bigger audience.
Besides that he also talked about DJ'ing, EDM, Battle Scars,Wayne skateboarding, Hood Now vid, new merch and more.
