Lupe's selection by Rolling Stone as part of its "Top 10 Artists to Watch in 2006" has turned out to be almost prophetic and inspired clairvoyance. Since first coming onto the music scene in 2006 with his show-stopping verse on Kanye West's hit single, "Touch The Sky", Lupe has climbed from success to superstardom. Lupe received the 2008 Grammy award for "Daydreamin' (ft Jill Scott)" for Best Urban/Alternative Performance. Armed with material from the new and hugely popular The Cool, and swollen fanbase, Lupe returns to S.O.B's on the 14th of May, for an up-close-and-personal concert that is sure to be one to remember.
"...one of the year's best hip-hop albums" -The New York Times, Jon Pareles' on The Cool.
Ticket Info: $37.50 General Admission; Available on Ticketmaster and at the S.O.B.'s Box Office, 212-243-4940. Doors open at 7pm.
Press Contact: Alex Damashek; email@example.com
212-243-4940 x. 130 (office)
But for the record, since I noticed he has a whole thread over at SOHH.com forum about him being dead, I just wanted to set the record straight. And put the video up as well.

If you haven't purchased your copy of "The Cool" yet WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?!?! its in stores NOW!
