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!!
