WPGC presents Lupe Fiasco at The Fillmore in Silver Spring, MD on Feb. 27th.
Tickets are available HERE
So Lupe just performed the first verse of Words I never Said for 30 minutes straight. He had to be removed from the stage.... for performing. Im at a loss for words...
20 min straight... **they cut his mic off**. Raps with no mic for 5-10 more minutes, People booing and everything. They cut the power to the stage. All those people... stunned! Security had to remove the homie from the stage.
He did the entire set, all the music from all the songs he was going to play were played... but he only did that verse. He stopped and had water once, and then he started the verse again...and again... and again... and again... No arrests... they just removed him from the stage. Nothing violent or negative was done. Just an #EpicShow!
Take this Day serious. #MLKDay - @LupeFiascoStore
The GRAMMY Foundation will host Play It Forward: A Celebration Of Music's Evolution And Influencers — the 15th Annual GRAMMY Foundation Music Preservation Project — on Feb. 7, 2013, at the Saban Theatre in Beverly Hills, CA. Featuring performances by Lupe and others!Tickets HERE
Hello. A decision has been made that the project titled "F&L2 Part 2" will be summarily cancelled for public release in 2013. The title/concept for Lupe's 2013 release will be revealed later this year. The LF twitter will be closed until that time.
At the Hamilton, a group of area technology startups have joined forces to start up other startups (say that three times fast) and are using the inauguration as a platform to show off their work.
Together HyperVocal, Event Farm and Fighter Interactive have created StartUp RockOn, an event series, and for inauguration they are bringing the Grammy-nominated rapper Lupe Fiasco to perform in DC on January 20th.
Nas is widely believed to be the victor in his and Jay's clash, and to strengthen their argument, CNN pointed to a 2006 MTV News interview with both spitters, where Jigga acknowledges the Life is Good rapper as "one of the best lyricists ever."
Where Jay stopped short of declaring Nas the one, CNN saw no problem in anointing God's Son. Still Nas is quite sure that there will one day be a new MC to over take his place in the annals of rap, just as many believe he supplanted 1980s icon Rakim.
"There was never a next Rakim. There's only one Rakim, and you can compare people to me, which is a great honor to me, but those guys are really on their path to becoming great Kendricks and greater Lupes," he said. "I think it took years after Illmatic, after my first record, before people started to get used to me and started to get into what I was all about and what the Nas story was."

HHNM: Who are some of the artists you are working with at the moment? What can we expect from you in the near future?
S1: I’m working with Lupe on his new album that is supposed to come out this year. I actually have been working a lot with him. I got a lot of songs with Lupe. This is the second part of Food & Liquor II and I am very involved with the overall sound he’s creating. Definitely excited about it.
I had a joint with Game on Jesus Piece called ‘Blood Diamonds’ which was on the deluxe version. Who else.. I’m working with Raekwon, of course Kanye, Royce Da 5’9” on his solo project, I’ve been sending some songs to Eminem as well. J. Cole is another one. Then I’ve been working with Ryan Leslie as well.
There’s this incredible singer-songwriter by the name of Roy English. I think he’s really gonna be one of those next new cats that really takes off. That’s another project I’ve been heavily involved with.
ACCC: As many of our readers know, the All City Chess Club “We Beamin’” track was released back in ‘10. Once it dropped, it became the talk of the blogosphere for quite some time. Although the song was well recieved, fans didn’t really get a feel of the recording process behind it. Can you give us a run-down about the atmosphere within the studio when the song was recorded? -- Where Lupe & others in attendance during the session?
Blu: no, not really, actually i was just given the instrumental with instructions to blaze the song, which was surprisingly produced by pharrell of the neptunes. i gave the original a few more listens to make sure i was on track with the concept, and i laced it and sent it back. shortly after i heard the completed song, i thought i should have been placed after lupe, but going after the cool kids was cool, haha.
ACCC: We’re sure many of the fans who visit our site ponder about this from time to time. By your knowledge, were there any other tracks that were recorded other than “We Beamin’” during the All City Chess Club session that never escaped “the vault”?
Blu: not really, i don't know if the guys got together without me and create something,
but there is a track that should actually be sent to me soon with mickey factz and lupe on it.
ACCC: Lupe Fiasco has always been supportive of you Blu, he did said that you’re the only that “scares him” after all. He did mention times before that if he were to have features on his latest album,Food & Liquor II: The Great American Rap Album Pt. 1, he would have only asked you and Kendrick Lamar to contribute. What a great honor -- did Lu ever reach out to you about being apart of F&L2?
Blu: no, i didn't get the invite. all tho we talked quite a few times while he was in california working on the record, i actually got tied up and missed a big session with him that could have possibly placed me on the record.
