Name: 1 RHOyal Fiasco
Age: a very young 27
Residence: Bay Area, CA but soon to be Chi Town in July (no, not for Lu... For grad school)
I'm going to have to go out on a limb and say that I am Lupe's #1 Supporter (I hate the word fan) outside of his immediate family and close friends... But not of the moment... I am now and forever will be two steps above the rest... I've flown from coast to coast to go to his shows... I've been to 9 shows so far... Obviously, I own F&L in addition to a variety of mixtapes (including, but not limited to: Fahrenheit 1/15 The Truth is Among Us, Revenge of the Nerds, A Rhyming Ape, Lupe the Jedi, Touch the Sky, etc...)... EVERY high school and junior high school that I work at, the children know how I feel about Lu and have, of their own accord, began calling me Ms. Fiasco... I am constantly in debates with grown men about why he is a dope lyricist... I have back issues of tons of mags he's been in (even ones from the UK)... I even got his name on my sorority jacket...
*When did you first become a fan of Lupe?*
Well... It is somewhat of a continuous process... Everytime I see him ,I love him more and more... But here's the rundown:
In late 2005, Kanye West's *Late Registration* came out and his verse on *Touch the Sky* was bananas (I'm tryin' to stop Lion like I'm Mum-Ra... GENIUS!)...In early 2006, I had lunch with a friend of mine who was raving about Lupe and his song *Kick Push*, which I'd never heard... Soon after this lunch meeting I heard his song and thought it was clever... The day before his album came out, I heard him on the radio and he was sooooo funny and seemed like such a cool dude. He played a few songs off the album including *He Say She Say*. But when he played *The Cool*, I knew I was gonna go get *F&L* the next day, and I did... He came to Frisco (San Francisco, for the lames) on 11/07/06 and my friend bought me tickets as a late birthday present (my B-day is 11/02)... And after seeing him live, I was hooked... I have been to 9 shows: Frisco, DC, Baltimore, LA, Vegas (twice), Riverside and Cleveland with no signs of stopping in the future... If I could, I'd go to EVERY show (I actually looked into plane tickets to Nihon (That's right KennyKenKen, I am familiar with the language), Australia and Canada. I'm a substitute teacher though and it's kinda hard to make that income stretch. So, for now, I'm going to have to confine my travels to the states...
*If you could steal one thing from Lupe, what would it be?*
Uhmmm... I wouldn't steal from him... However, I plan on asking him for a job. I'm going broke traveling across the country so it would be a lot easier if I worked for FNF so I could travel and go to shows for free...
I have to agree that you are DEFINITELY Lu's #1 Supporter. Your 9 shows really do spit all over my measley 1 show. But after Lollapalooza, when me and KayCee complete our "Hershey Agenda" (KayCee, I've named our mission, so its Official now and we HAVE to do it LOL) Then maybe we can actually compete with you because right now, AIN'T NOBODY EFFIN WIT YOU...NOT NOBODY!!!! And anybody who think they are...CHALLENGE HER TO DUEL, and I GUARANTEE YOU WILL LOSE. MUAH!!!!!
