What do you do when you fall?

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.


PEACE!!!!!!

A few things...

A) He was on the 2nd verse of "He Say She Say" not the first...

2) Wasn't SHIT about that funny... He was up a little higher than 4 feet but even if he wasn't... He fell on his head... That is a serious injury...

D) What kind of fan doesn't know how many shows they've been too and will publicly diss his songs?!...

I don't know this person but I know I don't like them...

Lest we forget Trouble T-Roy...

I'll take thirds on that, but if my lil big homie Lu fell on me, I would have broke his fall, then been like "Lu u alright, aww sh** ur bleeding. Man I go this Jo.....ummm and u don't even bother like brother without the R". Lol I would have finish the song then shouted out the cool people who I kno all kno about Lu like myself. Can't forget about 'The People' Like Common song says. FnF^^away

I'm right here sis...

Yeah he was on the edge and lost his balance...

After that... He didn't move for a good 2 or 3 minutes...

Then he got back up...

Hey! I'm flattered u quoted me, thanks! If I'd known I probably would've cleaned that up a lil and took out all the extraneous crap. :)

In response to the other comments, I think you may be a lil obsessed 1rhoyalfiasco, to correct me on the verse, my bad, but honestly, do you love every song he's ever put out? I love Lupe and his work to death, but he is human, and it's okay to not love everything he's ever created. And you're right, his injury wasn't funny, but the situation was cartoony, and I'm sure he too would be able to look back and laugh at that eventually.
