It Wasn't A Rumor...DEEPEST SYMPATHIES

It was not a rumor...Lu's father did pass...He wrote a message on Okayplayer.com messageboard....Again my deepest condolences and prayers go out to all affected by this news.

UP UP AND AWAY

I buried my father today...you may not know him but if you ever listened to my music then he is the Ghostwriter in the cut...He was the foundation of my thoughts and beliefs...He was the one that dared me to be different in light of peer pressure & the status quo...He dared me to stand for justice and righteousness in the face of ridicule and exclusion...He introduced me to The world of Music...He gave me a purpose...a reason to live and something to fight for...Something to Rap about...He gave me the weapons of self-defense...He showed me the realities of this world that lie behind the facade...He taught me the importance of a man's word in thisworld...for it is all that he truly has...besides faith in God...My father was a great man...He literally fought the "Good" fights in the face of insurmountable odds for the sake of the struggle and for the hearts & minds & spirits of his people...He waged a war of enlightment and amassed an army of light to fight against the forces of darkness and the soldiers of ignorance...He touched the lives of innumberable amounts of people whether it was through Martial Arts, Music, Religion, Social & Community Activism, The Sciences or just seeing his hand-painted, brightly decorated Church Van full of young kids from the hoody hood on his way to 63rd street beach pass you by...

May Allah Have Mercy On His Soul & Allow him Into The Gates Of Heaven....I Love You Baba.....We Love You....

"Tell The Truth" -His Last Words To Me....

Salaam....Sincerely, Wasalu Muhammad Jaco A.K.A "Lupe Fiasco" son of Gregory Hamza Jaco A.K.A "Baby Rollin' Thunder" "Tanaka Sensei" "Baba"
