But all jokes aside, I'm really concerned. Where is Bishop? Where is somebody? Is anybody telling him that he is committing career suicide. I'm sure he still has fans rocking with him and what he has to say but the stunts he pulls sometimes make you not want to be associated. I feel like I have to hide the fact that I'm a Lupe fan now cause I don't want people thinking I'm a terrorist and end up on a federal watch list or some shit lol. Okay imma stop joking about this serious situation.
But seriously, can we all just let Lupe know that we love him and we are listening and he doesn't need to go crazy tryna spread messages through the world. Those who care will get it, and join the fight. Thats where his energy needs to go. Focus on the people who want to support and stop making people rethink being a fan. Lupe is an excellent performer and it upsets me to hear that he was booted from an inaugural concert because he wasn't performing.
Back when I frequented Lupe concerts on a regular basis, we always got the message he was trying to give the people. Songs like American Terrorist and the shit talking was enough to make us feel what you were feeling. The ranting and raving is getting to be a bit much. People don't like to be forced to believe something. The truth always reveals itself in due time. Focus on the music. PLEASE! I miss the old Lupe Fiasco. The one I fell in love with. The one I could relate to. The nigga that was spitting some real shit. And not to discredit the knowledge he tryna kick now, but we know shit is fucked up, make us feel better about it. Make us want to start making changes instead of wanting to start a riot. People just label you as crazy when you try to fight against something that the majority believes. What happened to moving in silence? What happened to Ninja Lupe? You can get a lot more done that way. Show people there is a method to your madness because right now, you just look crazyasfuck. no spaces. (big bang theory is my favorite!)
A Concerned On the fence Fan,
Always Love Though.
"Lupe Fiasco performed at this private event, and as you may have read, he left the stage earlier than we had planned,” concert organizers said in an email to reporters. "But Lupe Fiasco was not 'kicked off stage' for an 'anti-Obama rant.' We are staunch supporters of free speech, and free political speech. This was not about his opinions. Instead, after a bizarrely repetitive, jarring performance that left the crowd vocally dissatisfied, organizers decided to move on to the next act.

Hey, remember me? Originally I was just another bright eyed college student with way too much time on my hands, which resulted in my cultivating something wonderful. Fast forward to now, and I have pretty much become a ghost of Lupe's past--with no explanation as to why, until now...
'The Lupe Fiasco Show' timeline- Recaps 1 & 2
Exhibit A, Exhibit B, Exhibit C, Exhibit D
Here's my skyscraper...(in case you missed it)
Kennykenken was one of the first visitors to my blog to show me love, and he said and I quote "this blog is gonna get big." I paid that remark no attention. And honestly it was not until about a week after Lupe's album 'The Cool' was on MTV's 'The Leak" (which was the week of his actual release) that I realized how "big" my blog was. I was always open to suggestions and didn't mind letting people jump on my bandwagon, because again, I was never doing this blog for attention, so the more, the merrier was always my motto.
And because I CHOSE not to let people know I ran the blog (by myself until I allowed others to start posting only because I could see my desire fading but I wanted to continue the greatness), a couple of other people got my recognition. And I never got bitter about that because I CHOSE not to put my face out there as much as the others. But what I didn’t like was how some people were not taking the opportunity to explain that this was MY BLOG, my writing, my hard work, my long hours of searching for shit, and not theirs. And sitting back watching people try and pretty much take over was killing me on the inside.
Because this blog had become a major part of my life, and we all know that time is EVERYTHING when it comes to the internet. So being the first to post stuff and find information is key; it separates the good from the great. But what that entails is a constant search for information. I had the shit down to a science, you would be surprised at what you can get some of these search engines to do. It was hard work though, and I did it for as long as I did because I really enjoyed it. But once it switched from feeling like a hobby to feeling like a job, I knew it was not long before this blog would eventually crumble.
Everybody had their opinion on what they thought I should be doing with MY blog. Readers, Femmes, shit I even recall getting phone calls with orders from Mr. Lupe Fiasco himself to take down things that I posted on my blog. It had become a circus, and I no longer wanted to be ringmaster, even though I was pressured into thinking “the show must go on.” And I tried to continue blogging, but it just wasn’t fun. I had no passion for it anymore. And I regret allowing others to take that away from me, but it came down to me either continuing to do all my hard work and letting others take the credit for it, or me completely stopping everything and watching the blog go down in flames.
And we all know which road was traveled on that one, so yeah. That was it. That is how this blog has gotten to this point. I almost feel like I could do an E! True Hollywood story about everything I encountered as a result of this blog (I see why Enquirer and Perez Hilton stay booming)…but luckily that’s not my style.
But back to what I was saying in the beginning, I just wanna do something I enjoy. I’ve gotten paid one $100 check from Google, so it was definitely NOT for profit. To this day I am sure Lupe Fiasco does not know my name or recognize my face like he does some of the other Femmes, so it was definitely NOT for attention. It was just for a love of writing, and new found interest in this rapper dude named Lupe Fiasco. And I took a much needed break but now I think I am ready…
And I’m OUT

Im salty because I actually really like Shwayze and I watched his show faithfully :)
If anyone goes to the show be sure to take lots of pictures and send in your reviews!
"RubyHornet: You signed to 1st and 15th, which is run by Lupe Fiasco, and at the time of your signing was primarily a Hip Hop label. Why did you decide to sign with them, and were there any musical "language barriers" so to speak in terms of the approach you wanted to take and how they were used to doing things?
Hey Champ!: Lupe is an artist first and foremost. He liked what we were doing and gave us freedom and leeway to record our album the way we wanted. We have a great working relationship with him. It was really a no-
brainer, he's a superstar who wanted to endorse us."
Much Love to the wonderful guys of Hey Champ! Click here to read the full interview
