I used to say I didn't like Lupe Fiasco, not cuz I didn't think he could rhyme, not cuz I didn't think he had something interesting to say. NO, I honestly didn't like Lupe cuz I thought he looked like someone I could beat up. I mean, I'm sorry, forgive me if I think a rapper should be cool, I mean, not necessarily hard, though, you shouldn't be a bitch! But that nigga looks like a nerd, and a little wimpy nerd, at that! But first I find out he's some kind of 4th degree blackbelt! Though I gotta admit, I still think I could take that nigga if I can get in close. But now I find out that nigga is moving weight. That nigga is the only rapper who sells drugs but doesn't rap about it. I gotta
respect that! So I say for the whole world to know, I, Weed Jesus of Azzereth, don't think I can beat up Lupe Fiasco anymore! There I said it!

YOU GET BACK UP!!!
And thats exactly what Mr. Lupe Fiasco did when he had a mishap at the "Taking it Back to the Streets" show in Chicago on yesterday.
Many people have reported that Lupe was doing a song, running around on stage (his usual) and out of nowhere, he fell off the stage.
UPDATE: After watching the Youtube clip (Yeah you had to know it was coming) Lupe was well into the 2nd verse "He Say She Say" when he just fell off the stage, out of nowhere. Like if you blinked or looked away for one second you would have missed it. I read accounts that said he fell head first into the crowd, and when I think of head first I think of like nosediving into a crowd. But this fall looked more like he went to the edge of the stage and just lost his balance and fell to the side. But Hey I wasn't there...RHOyal Fiasco WHERE YOU AT??? We need a firsthand account from you at show #1,000,000. LOL
But What do you do when you fall? YOU GET BACK UP...And like a G, Lu finished his set, head busted and all... NOW THATS LOVE...(Cause my ass definitely would have said EFF It and went home and tried to ward off the killa headache that I know would be coming soon)
Read this first hand account from OriJanelGangsta (hope you don't mind)
I'd eat your halal bacon strips, Lupe. I would.
So I am home from my 9th or 10th show featuring Lupe Fiasco and I think I am ready to admit that I have a problem. People get excited at concerts, but I think I might be a borderline fanatic. I haven't rushed any stages or anything, and don't really see it happening, but I just get too hyped when Lupe comes out, every time, without fail. Lupe is the new crack.I'm gunna read the Qur'an now, but I wanna Sparknote it first. I have yet to make it thru the Bible, or even Sparknotes on the Bible. But this Qur'an book is nice and small and unintimidating. Maybe they left some stuff out, but it's about the size of a regular novel. Also, the cover is very pretty.
Back to Lupe, the poor kid, he fell off the stage. Someone said he passed out, but no, I saw that mug get excited and he just miscalculated where the end of the stage was. It was kinda funny afterwards, but then it was scary. Just to make it worse, he was singing when he fell too, just "I want you to be a father, he's your lil...*disappears silently from stage as music continues*" This girl left out behind him who was also bleeding, they say he fell on her. LOL! I think I wouldn't be too upset if Lupe fell on me. I would've been happy to break his fall, I mean it was only from about 4 feet up. Just think, had he taken about 4 steps to his left, he could've fallen on top of me. (By the way, I no longer have any doubts about my ability to get to the front of a crowd. I'm so cocky in fact, that I might even go to Lollapalooza and attempt to see the stage.) The kid seemed more embarrassed than hurt, because he definitely wiped the blood off his head, climbed back onstage, said "whatever", cuz it wasn't the first time he fell off a stage, and went straight into "Kick, Push". Now that's a baaad mutha shut yo mouth.AND! After listening to Pressure a few more times, I retract any and everything bad that I ever said about Food and Liquor, and I offer my sincerest apologies to those who heard me speak said blasphemy.Edit: Wait, I'm lying...like a rug. He still could've kept Kick, Push II...and Kick, Push, I never really dug that either. I appreciate that the topic is unique, but I'm not really interested, thanks.

R.I.P. Stacks Bundles...
My Dear Friend...it hurt so much to wake up to this...So sad...I've watched from the humble beginnings...when he used to live with me out in Chicago we rocked together everyday...He'd write rhymes in one room and I'd be writing rhymes in the other...He was there with me through many a milestone in my life , the up's and the downs, and I was so proud and happy to see him acheive success in his life at what he loved...Hip-Hop...Stacks was the first person that was signed to 1st&15th way back when it first started FYI...Even beyond that I considered Stacks family...My heartfelt condolences go out to his family and friends in this time of sadness...We all lost a Good Friend today...But He wont be forgotten...May God have mercy on his soul, Forgive him for his sins in this Life, and watch over him in the next...
My deepest sympathies go out to all those affected by this tragedy.
“I push rocks, dawg.” - Lupe Fiasco, on his 2003 single “Pop Pop”
It’s no secret I’ve had my share of issues with Lupe Fiasco. It all started about a year ago, when Lupe complained to the press about his album having been leaked to the Internets so long before its release date. I merely noted, in a post on this site, that he shouldn’t have complained as much, since that was probably the most publicity he had received up until that point.
A while later, Lupe was invited to post for a week on this site’s mercifully defunct (just like most of the other blogs here, if you think about it) Guest List blog. While he prides himself on hardly ever cursing, or advocating teh ghey violence, in his recordings, he took his first post here as an opportunity to call me a “b*tch ass nigga” and threaten to jump off in my ass. No homo.
I suppose it would be racist of me to suggest that such behavior may have had something to do with him being a Muslim, so I won’t bother.
I will note, though, that if there’s one thing Muslims are known for, other than blowing themselves up, it’s moving that H. Supposedly, quite a bit of the heroin on the streets here in the US is imported from Muslim countries such as Afghanistan. I never would have guessed that Lupe Fiasco himself would be involved in heroin distribution, but apparently he was. Or was he?
The other day, Charles Patton, a longtime associate of Lupe’s and partner in his 1st and 15th Records vanity label, was sentenced to 44 years in prison on drug conspiracy charges. Lupe himself managed to escape prosecution, though it’s been suggested that him and Charles Patton were partners in more than just sh*tty rap records. Nullus?
You’ll recall that when it was announced earlier this year that Patton would stand trial, and that Lupe would testify, it was revealed that 5-0 had Patton on tape making Amtrak reservations for himself and Lupe for March 25, 2003 and then setting up an OT drug deal for, you guessed it, March 25, 2003. Coincidence?
During the course of the trial, it was revealed that there’s another tape in which Fiasco and Patton are heard discussing splitting up “whole yellow” and “whole red” ones. Lupe testified that they were referring to the mixing of music tracks, and that he didn’t have sh*t to do with any drug dealing, except when he used to rap about it.
At any rate, Lupe walked free while his business partner will probably never walk free again. Which begs the question: How in the f*ck can 5-0 have your business partner making Amtrak reservations for the two of you to make a drug deal, plus another tape in which the two of you discuss splitting up yellow packs and red pack, and yet you got off scott free?
There’s an obvious explanation here, but again I’m going to avoid stating it too explicitly; because Lord knows I’ve got my fair share of problems already, and the last thing I need is some crazed Islamic fascist jumping off in my ass - or worse.
