Pose for the Camera Now...FLICK, FLICK

Behind the Scenes of the video for "The Instrumental"
(Yo Lupe, You need to Go 'Head and Leak that "He Say, She Say" Video that I heard was done by Impakt Studios as well)

YO, When I saw this picture, I was immediately blinded by that fly ass jacket...Damn you know what? I 'd have to agree, I don't think that he was born here, I think that he was beamed...LOL

Lupe and Gemini...and I need to meet Gemini so that he can sing to me. Because his voice is definitely one of those throw your panties on the stage, faint in your arm type voices.

Lupe throwing up ten fingers for 10 Deep


Is Lupe doing the motorcycle?? LMAO...Or maybe he was on the verge of BALLLINNN'!!!

I just like this picture...GREAT JOB TO THE PHOTOGRAPHER...Whoever you are...

Smorgasboard of Lupe Fiasco Videos

The link above contains a plethora of videos showcasing Mr. Lupe Fiasco...

There is a video of him answering the basic interview questions and then him answering fan questions (even the most mysterious, untouched question that all his fans (or better yet Stans) are obsessing over and dying to know)

Then there's the videos of him performing Failure and Tilted Live (with a little bit of Don't Get it Twisted mixed in one of them) And then the videos that he released...You know, You've Seen Them.

Check it out...(and yeah its old, but who cares? Cause I don't)

Lupe Interviewed at Webster University

This is a very recent interview Lupe did when he performed at Webster University in St. Louis sometime last week. I personally thought the interviewer was annoying, unprepared and talked entirely too much...BUT HEY, I'm not hating...I'm just saying...BUT IT'S LUPE (and they also speak briefly with Gemini at the end), SO WATCH IT AND ENJOY!!!

Here's what someone had to say about the concert...
For about 75 minutes, Lupe filled the gym with danceable beats, positive lyrics and strong advice. He wasn’t preachy, which is surprising considering the amount of guidance he offered to mostly college-age crowd. He told girls to put self-esteem before sexy and he told guys to practice self-respect and self-expression.

The spoken-word interludes between songs about skateboarding and defeating George W. Bush culminated with 32 seconds of silence in remembrance of Virginia Tech. After the silence, Lupe said a few words and left the stage. No closing number, no encore, no complaints from the audience.

Also Here's a Photo from that same day @ Webster University

And some information about a mixtape...

After the show, Lupe recorded some sound bites for DJ Trackstar. He’ll be hosting Trackstar’s next mixtape. Props to John Ginsburg for facilitating the backstage access.

Quotations from Lupe Fans

I've been reading different things that alot of fans have said about Lupe and I would like to share them with you...some of them proclaim how SEXXXYYY they think he is, whilst some just compliment him on his SKILLZ (ya know Bowhunting, I say, I love that movie) But they were all HILARIOUS to me (thats my favorite word, if you haven't noticed) ...SO READ & ENJOY!!!!

When he threw on a Gorillaz track for a back beat, I knew this was a man with class and taste. I mean, he sported Chucks and an Andy Warhol pin, and had on the first pair of hipster jeans I’ve seen on a rapper. Call ‘em the un-phat pants. They sagged just right beneath his boxers, then tapered off into a tight bunch at the ankles. And it didn’t hurt that he was ga-ga- gorgeous. To be honest, from the moment he cameout all I was thinking was: Can you please take me home with you?

I’ll say it upfront: I adore this album. If I saw Lupe on the street, I wouldn’t ask him for an autograph; I’d fucking thank him and give him my bike

Wow, what a super fun kid. Just super super fun. Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious fun. Just a DJ, him and his "backup rapper" I will call the dude for lack of a better term, with a few singers coming to the stage for a song here or there. He's cute and sassy and fun and tells funny stories and dances like just a total goofball. I bought this album in January after sort of putting it off all fall. Then I hadn't even listened to it before going to this concert. I'm an idiot. When we finally find out what rare and incurable disease I am dying from, I want someone to contact the Make-a-Wish foundation and get me half-an-hour on the dancefloor with Lupe Fiasco.

My husband (referring to Lupe) is performing on the 25th and I must be in attendance. I’ll be damned if I miss him. I sound like a groupie. Oh well. He doesn’t fuck groupies anyway so I have nothing to worry about. I’m not trying to fuck. I wanna get married. LOL. Let me stop.

I learnt a lot about Lupe Fiasco that night. He is a martial arts master and is not afraid to dance around a table in the middle of a restaurant telling his animated stories. I liked the man and his entourage, they were good sorts who offered to "put us out" on myspace. Seeing as Lupe has 400, 000 friends, that could be a really big favour.

Lupe's #1 Fan of the Moment...Radhiya

Radhiya's Myspace

1) I first HEARD of Lupe when I was on the Atlantic Street Street Team website....I'm not sure what i was doing on there (prolly some Pretty Ricky mess shhh! u aint hear that from me) but i was...they had the little music player at the top of the page playing Kick, Push...the beat sucked me in..and the fact that he was talking bout something different blew me away....It was instant Ear Candy if i must say so myself....(smiles)....After that experience I totally forgot about him....He found me again later that summer (You likes how i said he found me haha..whatever) via the internet again... go figure...and I heard more of his music...I think Muhammad Walks was the song that did it for me...being a Muslim myself, sheesh I was flattered AND WE'VE BEEN TOGETHER EVER SINCE :) LOL

2) If I could steal one thing from Lupe it would be his heart...just as he stole mines (smiles) You know i had to do it, I had to go there lol....but seriously.....I wouldn't mind raiding his sneaker collection though...but i wouldn't steal anything...Just experiment a lil...i promise...I dont steal FNF UP ERRRRRDAY! NEVER DOWN! UP, UP, UP, UP WEEEEE GOOOO!

Yeah I think I would like to dibble and dabble in his sneaker collection as well...but mainly so I could go around to everyone screaming like a maniac "CHECK MY FOOTWORK, CHECK MY FOOTWORK, YOU AIN'T GOT THESE, YOU AIN'T GOT THESE!!!" LOL...That would be extremely FUN!!! But thanx for participating, I LOVE YOU FOR THAT!!!! And Yes, FNF UP, NEVER DOWN, DEFYING THE LAWS OF GRAVITY EACH AND EVERY DAY!!! MUAH!!!

Wanna be Lupe's #1 Fan like Radhiya??? here for details

The Video that Changed Everything...

For me, Before there was Lupe Fiasco, there was Jay-Z, the only rapper I declared was my favorite. I am still a diehard Jay-Z fan and will forever remain one but now Jay has competition when before I never really thought there was any. I believe my first introduction to Lupe was watching BET's UNCUT (lol...yeah) and they played Kick, Push on there, I liked the song, but didn't think much of it. And because I don't watch music videos often or TV for that matter, and my radio station only play the same three Snap songs over and over, I missed the whole, Touch the Sky blowup and Kick Push deal. Like literally...didn't know anything about the leak, or Anything about Anything, NOTHING, until I started reading interviews and such. However, this video below was my Grand Introduction to a man that goes by the name of...LUPE FIASCO. Without this video, THIS BLOG WOULD NOT BE IN EXISTENCE!!! So I dedicate this blog to the video, Thanx, without you video, I'd probably be studying instead of maintaing this blog.

Okay, So I will continue my Sob Story to How I discovered Lupe Fiasco...

I remember watching this Behind the Scenes, Making of the Video type thing on MTV2 one day with all my family, and I have to admit I didn't think of Lupe much more after seeing it. But the video must have ran subconsciously in my head because I remember going to a Wal-Mart and lookin through CDs, and without any previous desire, I wanted to buy Food and Liquor. And it was weird because anybody who knows me knows that I DO NOT BUY CDS at all unless they are Jay-Z. But they didn't have any. But this was the day before, Jay-Z Kingdom Come came out, and I knew I was gonna go to the store and buy that album, so when I did, I picked up Food & Liquor too. But its funny because I don't think I even listened to the album for like an entire month after buying it. Like I would play it, I heard it, but never actually listened to it. Then Daydreaming came out, and I love that song, so one day I just made myself sit down and listen to the album and like the Captain from Peter Pan, I WAS HOOKED!!

Blaise, Blaise, Blah...This that and the third, Mo Money Mo Problems, and its all spiraling into an abyss that leads to where I am today...THE LUPE FIASCO SHOW BLOG CREATOR!!!! MUHAHAHAHAHAA....MUHAHAHAHAHA...(thats my evil laugh)...MUHAHAHAHAAA...Now that I have your attention, let me distract you some more...CONTINUE TO READ MY BLOG, LIKE IT...LOVE IT...LIVE IT!!!! MUAH!!!!

Lupe Quotables

This edition of Quotables show Lupe's response to questions that people asked him on messageboards (FM board back in the day) and interviews... HILARIOUS MIGHT I ADD...

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

so ur telling me ur also broke?.. :p
hahahahahaha OH NO my friend I'm Filthy Rich Actually...

is that your real name? lupe fiasco
No I was born Michigan Seymour McDougall Coogamellencamp Esquire The 18th to be exact....

didn't go the kanye route of makin a cd called "the college fuckthat"?
nope it was more fittingly titled "The College Can't Afford That, Better Stick To Rapping Or Be A Wandering Hobo"

lol - that's great....*shakes head and continues laughing* any advice for a kid who can write raps but can't freestyle???
uummmm...Write Freestyles!...
but that would be the same thing as writing raps, wouldn't it???? because freestyling's when you think of raps off the top of your head and rapping you write the lines down first....i can rap fine, but in freestyling i have to think a lot first and say parts of what i wanna say over and over....
whatever, i'll just stick to writing rhymes then....
just jiving homey...practice rhyming about nonsense, seriously, anything to get the flow out and then over time the subject matter will get better and that'll be $4,000,000 dollars

lol dude ur so funny, do u do stand up comedy?
more like sitting sarcasm...

u stared rapping @ 8 whatcha rap about
8th grade!....not 8....and I was rapping a bout hennesy and biyaatch's...the breakfast of champions

On “He Gets the Girl” you woo a chick by talking about playing the tuba and having an autographed Linkin Park shirt. What kind of game do you kick?
I don’t kick game no more. If your purpose in life is to find that one person you can trust and be with for the rest of your life, it’s not gonna come through no game.
So you haven’t got hoes in different area codes?
We can jump on MySpace right now! Ask them, “Have you ever done anything with Lupe?” They’ll say, “No, I took a picture with him.” When I leave shows, I’ll walk right to my car and go straight to my hotel and go to sleep. Because to me, it’s a job.

The Things I'd Do For Those Shades...

Update: On this messageboard there is a post asking what would you do for the shades, let me know, and the funniest ones I'll put them on here...

Laissez Faire: "I would give up kennykenken's first born, if push came to shove."

My Cuzin Lex: "I'd tongue kiss Flava Flav" (YOU NASTY...LOL)

RHOyal Fiasco: "I would ask him what brand they are and then buy some of my own... I'm kinda no fun" (Yeah You're Not...LOL...But I still luv ya)

Not his shades personally, but the shades in general...I would

(1) Slap My Mama (but before I'd have to write a note that would be read post-humously that would leave specific directions to bury me wearing those shades, cause she'd DEFINITELY kill me)

(2) Run through a briar patch naked (Im from the South and I know first hand that running through a briar patch WITH clothes on is hell, so without would be like death) FYI: A briar patch could be compared to barbed wire

(3) Stop eating Pork (Again I'm from the South and I LOVES MY Bacon, Ribs, Ham, Chitlins, etc)

(4) Sign up for the Marines and be shipped off to Iraq (and become a Bush Supporter in the process)

(5) Give up the Internet FOREVER (No Myspace, Facebook, Youtube, Blogging, No Messages, No Nothing)

Lu Groupie Encounter

Another Edition...

Dear Lupe Fiasco,

Yea, that was me in the airport yesterday, the one who chased you down. Thanks for not running away from me. It was nice meeting you. I was a little excited and I think I forgot to mention how fabulous you are. I use your lyrics all the time in my classroom (we did a whole lesson on the history of hate in America and we listened to "American Terrorist" and picked apart the words and weight of the issue). I'm proud to have introduced my students to music with meaning. Yea, they dig you. Figured you'd want to know that. Couldn't quite remeber how to talk yesterday besides calling your name and shaking your hand with the enthusiasm of a 12 year old girl seeing someone she has a poster of (minus the screaming and carrying on). Better then when I saw Ahmir, in which I think I uttered "Quest you're the best". And don't get me started on the time I bumped into Dave Chapelle. Pitiful.

So, yea, I think you are an amazing musician. Keep it up.

Peace, King.


posted on Okayplayer

LMAO...The first two sentences of this "letter" made me laugh out loud. I pictured in my head a scene of this person chasing after Lu in an airport, like a typical chase scene where Lu was running up the down escalator, pushing down old women with walkers, knocking over trash cans, falling and then doing a tuck and roll type move and then running some more...LOL...It was funny in my mind...

This is the look that I image he had on his face when he saw this person chasing after him...

Awww...Somebody caught Lu Slipping...LITERALLY

No really...It looks like he slipped and fell in this clip...right in the beginning, and his reaction of him laughing afterwards confirms (at least to me) that YEAH he did fall...LOL

But like a true pimp, He played it off Perfectly and without losing his cool AND unless you just find it HILARIOUS when someone falls (like me) You probably wouldn't even have noticed it...LOL

Also, this is kinda a good clip, nice sound, nice video (except for a few arms in the way) and near the end Lu jumps in the crowd and runs right pass whoever recorded this...

Saw Lupe Fiasco today at the UW. Not only was he great in concert what made it freakin over the top is when he got to "I Gotcha". Anyways, while he was singing the first verse to "I Gotcha" he freakin points me out in the crowd and starts SERENADING ME!!!! . Then not only that, he was wearing sunglasses, and he took them mid way so I can look into his eyes and then he called me beautiful. FUCKING YES! aint nobody can say anything about me ever. I mean a man so talented and gorgeous freakin considers me beautiful, HA! I believe it! Freakin yes! I AM BEAUTIFUL according to LUPE FIASCO!!!. I was also singing along with him while he was singing to me, but then i forgot the lyrics because I couldn't freakin believe that that was happening , but my stupid ass decided to take pictures, which didnt come out, instead of taking a video, but its engraved into my memory! Freaking the BEST DAY OF MY LIFE!
