Fan Reviews: Lupe at UTA

"I went to the Lupe Fiasco show at UT-Arlington on Sep 24th, and I was blown away. I thought Lu's performance at Glow in the Dark could not be topped, but he gave the most incredible performance I've ever seen (and the tickets were only 25 bucks!!). His energy was crazy, he would spit lines at sonic speed and then slow down with the most flawless flow. When the whole auditiorium began chanting his name, he ran across the stage did a cartwheel and then a BACKFLIP!! And in addition to rapping, he also sang! He sang a slow jazz song, the intro to Daydreamin, and I must say LU CAN DEFINETLY SING!! Lupe also performed a song from LupEND, which I don't know the name of but it was a slow jam with incredible lyrics and a mellow beat. And Lu's dance moves were much more polished than usual (I think he's been rehearsing!). What I loved most about this show was not only Lu's incredible energy, but he was not afraid to be himself....He was not afraid of being silly or speaking his mind. And at the end, he gave the most articulate and motivating mini speech about why we should educate ourselves and vote. I also got to meet Lupe before the show, and even though he was running late, he was really sweet and took the time to meet me and my sister and take some pics with us! (THANKS LU!) I've been to a lot of concerts, but this was definetly the best show I've ever been to! If Lupe is coming to your city, definetly go and see him because you'll get every cents worth and you will fall even more in love with hip hop."

This could be you! send all your Lupe reviews or Groupie encounters to kay2dacee@gmail.com!

New Gemstones Interview

Done by ME :)

"KayCee: As you said you’re signed to Lupe Fiasco’s 1st and 15th label. We all know about Lupe Fiasco the artist…what can you tell us about Lupe Fiasco the “Business Man”?

Gemstones: Lupe the Business Man, he’s an asshole. He’s an asshole but in a good way though. He’s an asshole, the business man…You remember the asshole the y said Dame (Dash) was? But it was for business, for the team so the team could win. We need that type of business person, you need that type of person with that business mentality of an asshole because when you’re an asshole you get the job done. You see what I’m saying and with Lupe and his asshole mentality he brought home a gold record. FNF is out there being heard right now. I’ve had a chance to have my voice heard you know what I’m saying and he’s kept me on top of my game with his asshole like mentality. Like when it all boils down to it, he don’t take no shit and he’s on top of his business which makes me be on top of my business and I want him to continue to do business the way he does business because it will forever keep me on top of my business and keep me ahead of all these others guys. So shouts out to Lupe for having the business mentality that he has…I love it."

Lupe loves Harry Potter

via MTV.com

"Harry Potter has his 10-year "birthday" this week, but it's not just the fantasy crowd that's celebrating (either with wizard-rock shows or readathons).

We checked in with a variety of musicians and actors (some from the films, some not) to see what they thought about the boy wizard and how he's impacted their lives. We thought we might get laughed at — after all, a lot of these folks were walking the red carpet at the VMAs and probably had something far more glamorous to attend to. But mention Harry Potter, and some people just light up."

Lupe Fiasco: "I'm a spectator of the entire phenomenon, you know what I'm saying? The entire phenomenon inspires me. I love Harry Potter [he points to his own specs] because of the glasses."

Aubrey O'Day loves herself some Lupe Fiasco

I was on Complex.com and was randomly reading about Aubrey from Danity Kane, or better yet, P Diddy's Making the Band. And Aubrey was quoted saying this...

"Ever the romantic, Aubrey makes her assistant sleep with her because she hates to be alone. She also calls Lupe Fiasco “my future husband.” Lu, you may need to kick, push up on that. "
I can't escape reading about Lupe Fiasco even if I wanted to...LOL

Here's the link just in case you wanted to read about Aubrey...Hey, YOU NEVER KNOW!!!! LOL

Lupe the Gamer..Interview with Celebrity Cafe

Came across this interview while searching for music...

Lupe Fiasco -

By: Dominick A. Miserandino

Chicago-born rapper Lupe Fiasco is making headway in hip-hop, winning awards for his albums and performances, and now he's a featured artists inXbox 360's new karaoke game, LIPS. TheCelebrityCafe.com's Dominick Miserandino spoke with Lupe about his venture in the video game industry.

DM: What got you started in the video game industry?

LF: They came to me with an idea that I really liked and I also liked the calibre of artists they were bringing into this particular job.

DM: Were you always into video games growing up?

LF: Oh yeah. I go way back to early Nintendo and SEGA and now we're looking to the future with PSP and Xbox.

DM: How did you find the game when you played it yourself?

LF: I'm actually … I'm actually quite terrible. (laughter) I had to learn how to play the game, that you don't just sing but also how you move with the mic to really get your points up.

DM: As a gamer yourself, how do you think this game will do on the market?

LF: I think it will go really well. I think it fit well alongside Guitar Hero and Rock Band but I think that because it's a different genre of music from classic rock and rock. It's got an iPod-type feature you can load your own songs and even music videos. And of course you have to move with the mic, to perform. That really sets it apart and lets it compete with everything else.

DM: Now video games aren't your main source of income, but do you think music and video games are all just merging together now?

LF: It's one of my main sources of lots of income. (laughter). I think it's kind of the final frontier with all these different types of media converging into one entity. I think that's the sign of the times, the future. It's like you've reached the limit with what you can do with a lot of stuff whether it's music or movies, so now it's how can you put the great music with a film, or that video game with a film, put this song with a game. I think the convergence is the natural order of technology.

DM: Does that mean you're trying other avenues, too?

LF: Actually I'm gonna go out and get some robotic arms next week. (laughter) Yeah, a complete cyborg overhaul. I got a couple movie soundtracks out. My older records were just part of the video game soundtrack, but now they're really part of the game, so that's a revolutionary thing for me.

DM: Did you enjoy working on it?

LF: My work was already done. I already had it all recorded. Now my work is to beat my own score.

DM: So now the work is the fun afterwards.

LF: Now the work is beating everybody up. It'd be a shame if some fat kid Idaho gets a higher score than I did. I really don't want to look at YouTube and see that.

DM: Do you have any other video game projects in the works?

LF: This is probably the beginning of something. I want my own video game. I actually did my album with a type of video game on the side.

DM: So this has been on your radar for a while.

LF: Video games are a big part of my life. I've got them at almost every concert for before the show.

Gemstones: 9 To Watch In 09'

My Best Bud Gemstones made Def Sounds list of the 9 Artist to Watch in 09'!

"Chicago has been consistently producing quality MCs over the last few years. Common, Kanye West, Lupe Fiasco, and now Gemstone.

Formerly known as Gemini, Gemstone is a close friend of Lupe Fiasco and has gone toe to toe with the celebrated MC on numerous tracks including “The Die,” on his critically acclaimed album “The Cool.”

Gemstone’s solo effort, Troubles Of The World, is currently in the works. He is also rumored to be working on an untitled album with fellow First & Fifteenth members Lupe Fiasco and Shayla G."

Lu talks to Miss Info about his VMA outfit...

Click here to listen...

apparently this was supposed to happen...

"Lupe says he was set to debut his Fall of Rome line on the red carpet but it didnt make it through customs en route from Tokyo’s Swagger Crew. So he went to H.Lorenzo in LA instead and copped this ensemble by the Belgium line, Les Hommes."

Im not backing down I still don't like that outfit...but I LOVE LUPE FIASCO BITCHES!!!

so he could wear whatever the hell he wants :)

Blast Magazine Interview

"Kellen: Let’s turn to your music for a moment. You’re quite well-known for dealing with some tough issues in your music. Are those issues part of what inspires you as an artist?

Lupe: Yeah, very much so. You know, you gotta talk about something. I know how to talk about just about anything, so you have to kind of find out the right thing to talk about. I pull a lot from things going on in the world, social issues, things I can help with or affect, and really actually bring that stuff to my audience, which is where I came from, people who listen to me and who don’t know what’s going on Russia, going on Uganda or what have you. How do I take those issues, transform them, and package them in a way where my hip-hop family or hip-hop base, you know, can understand it and participate in everything else going on in the world."

Lupe Fiasco Interview with Rap Up

After performing at Sunday’s VMAs, Lupe Fiasco spoke to Rap-Up.com about his third and possibly final studio album, L.U.P.N., due in stores by the end of 2009.

“I just don’t really feel like rapping anymore,” Lupe admitted. “I’m going to write a book and put out [other artists’] albums like Matthew Santos.”

Sadly, he stands by his word and claims it’s not another Jay-Z episode.

The “Superstar” rapper says he hasn’t even started recording the new album yet. He will begin work next year.

I had to go to work today...

so im late on posting the Bishop G and Lu track "No Pain" ...sorry...


Shout out to Bishop! (Now where is the tweak muzik?)


Okay so bishop said thats not lupe on this track...its a gentleman that goes by the name of Hucabera

"Lupe Fiasco you are NOT Andre 3000"


"Stop it. Just. Stop. It.

I don’t care. It’s one thing to deal with the biters outside of the industry, but at an artists level you should really think twice about some of the clothes you wear and what it conveys. This look conveys “I don’t care, I’m going horseback riding…on Andre 3000’s stylee”

Sweetie...I don't think Andree 3 Stacks would rock this outfit...

"Superstar" is going Karaoke

spotted at HHDX

"Lupe Fiasco reached a large audience with his 2007 hit "Superstar." The song was a chart-topping radio success, as well as a nomination for last night's MTV Music Awards [click to read].

Now, after a strong run, the song is to be immortalized in XBox's new game LIPS. Described to be in the tradition of Rock Band and Guitar Hero, the game challenges players on their ability to rock the microphone over an array of hits from Hip Hop history.

"It's dope. I've had my songs in games before, but more as kinda the soundtrack," Lupe told HipHopDX Monday night. "For now, for my song to be part of the game, so to speak, is like ill. It's revolutionary. It's revolutionary in the sense that this game, LIPS, focuses on Hip Hop. The microphone, you can't just sing like karaoke, line-for-line, you actually have to rock the mic."

"It's amazing," Lupe added, seeing his song get appreciated in new medium. "I just did a show and said, 'I can't believe this is my life.' I'm at a point now where it's Lupe Fiasco everyday, and I kinda forget that I'm famous, or that I have celebrity or what-have-you, and to be reminded of it in ways like this [game] is [shocking]."

Asked if this opportunity will alter Lupe's relationship with songwriting, he laughed, saying, "It's gonna make me that much more responsible. [It's going to make me] say more and do better. It goes other places, into performing. A new level of professionalism, focusing on the art, a new level of integrity - everything is heightened for me."

Lupe closed that the artist featured on "Superstar," Matthew Santos is working on a yet to be titled album, the next released by 1st & 15th Records. A single is to be released by year's end."

Nikki gets a gift from Mr. Jaco...

Rapper Big Pooh on Lu...

Rapper Pooh is 1/2 of the DOPEST hip hop group out LITTLE BROTHER! As part of our What The Artist Say... series, we asked Pooh these questions...

What are your thoughts on Lupe Fiasco and What do you feel he brings to Hip-Hop?

and his answer to that question was...

"Lupe was a much needed voice in Hip Hop when the masses became aware of not only him, but his talent.

He is an artist who use words as if they are paint brushes creating pictures people will be analyzing for years to come."

Thank you BIG POOH for being apart of The Lupe Fiasco Show and chatting with us! Little Brother is currently out on tour with David Banner! check their MYSPACE for more information and tour dates :)

Stay tuned to the blog to hear what other artist have to say about our main man LUPE FIASCO!

Blu on Lu...

So I remember when me and Keena came up with this idea for What The Artists Say... We were trying to come up with new shit for the blog...I was eating coconut sorbet and frozen pinapples and...OKAY you didnt need to know that...but yeah...Then, it hit me! "Why don't we ask other rappers what they they think about Lu?"

ANYWAY...Keena already hit you with what the homie Thurzday had to say (Thanks again Thurzday)

and now I bring you the big Homie Blu (another one of my favorites)

Here is BLU

and here is what he said about Lupe...

I think Lupe has accomplished something that is very hard to do now a days; Get real music to get real airplay on commercial radio.

We need more artists on major labels to take a page out of Lupe Fiasco's book and stop flooding the airwaves with garbage music with little to no substance just to make a quick buck.

Expect a Blu/Fiasco Collab soon.

So True!
And Im super excited about the thought of that Collab...
Make sure you hit Blu up on myspace

Lupe Quotable...

"George Bush got more guns than Detroit...MAYBE"

LMAO...He said that last year at a show right before he performed American Terrorist. I dont know...it may only be funny to me because I live in Detroit.
Anyway Whats your Favorite Lupe Quotable?

SMH @ Young Berg coming here and getting his chain snatched...
I gotta get out of here.

To all my family back at home in Louisiana

Im praying for you and I love you dearly...Im not ready to go through Katrina again...

"NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Hurricane Gustav slammed into the heart of Louisiana's fishing and oil industry with 110 mph winds Monday, delivering only a glancing blow to New Orleans that raised hopes the city would escape the kind of catastrophic flooding brought by Katrina three years ago.

That did not mean the state survived the storm without damage. A levee in the southeast part of the state was on the verge of collapse, and officials scrambled to fortify it. Roofs were torn from homes, trees toppled and roads flooded. More than 1 million customers were without power.

The nearly 2 million people who left coastal Louisiana on a mandatory evacuation order watched TV coverage from shelters and hotel rooms hundreds of miles away, many of them wondering what kind of damage they would find when they were allowed to come back home.

Keith Cologne of Chauvin, La., looked dejected after talking by telephone to a friend who didn't evacuate. "They said it's bad, real bad. There are roofs lying all over. It's all gone," said Cologne, staying at a hotel in Orange Beach, Ala.

But the biggest fear — that the levees surrounding the saucer-shaped city of New Orleans would break and flood all over again — hadn't been realized. Wind-driven water sloshed over the top of the Industrial Canal's floodwall, but city officials and the Army Corps of Engineers said they expected the levees, still only partially rebuilt after Katrina, would hold.

Flood protections along the canal broke with disastrous effect during Katrina, submerging St. Bernard Parish and the Lower Ninth Ward.

"We are seeing some overtopping waves," said Col. Jeff Bedey, commander of the Corps' hurricane protection office. "We are cautiously optimistic and confident that we won't see catastrophic wall failure."

In the Upper Ninth Ward, about half the streets closest to the canal were flooded with ankle- to knee-deep water as the road dipped and rose. Of more immediate concern to authorities were two small vessels that broke loose from their moorings in the canal and were resting against the Florida Street wharf.

The rain had stopped by mid afternoon Monday in the French Quarter, the highest point in the city. The wind was breezy but not fierce, and some of the approximately 10,000 people who chose to defy warnings and stay behind began to emerge. But knowing that the levees surrounding the city could still be pressured by rising waters, no one was celebrating just yet.

"I don't think we're out of the woods. We still have to worry about the water," said Gerald Boulmay, 61, a St. Louis Hotel worker and lifelong New Orleans resident.

One community in southeast Louisiana was fearful their levee wouldn't hold. As many as 300 homes in Plaquemines Parish were threatened, and the parish president called a television station to issue an urgent plea to any residents who were left to flee to the Mississippi River, where officials would evacuate them.

"It's overtopping. There's a possibility it's going to be compromised," said Phil Truxillo, a Plaquemines emergency official.

The National Hurricane Center in Miami said Gustav hit around 9:30 a.m. near Cocodrie (pronounced ko-ko-DREE), a low-lying community in Louisiana's Cajun country 72 miles southwest of New Orleans, as a Category 2 storm on a scale of 1 to 5. The storm weakened to a Category 1 later in the afternoon. Forecasters feared the storm would arrive as a devastating Category 4.

As of noon, the extent of the damage in Cajun country was not immediately clear. State officials said they had still not reached anyone at Port Fourchon, a vital hub for the energy industry where huge amounts of oil and gas are piped inland to refineries. The eye of Gustav passed about 20 miles from the port and there were fears the damage there could be extensive.

The storm could prove devastating to the region of fishing villages and oil-and-gas towns. For most of the past half century, the bayou communities have watched their land disappear at one of the highest rates of erosion in the world. A combination of factors — oil drilling, hurricanes, levees, dams — have destroyed the swamps and left the area with virtually no natural buffer against storms.

Damage to refineries and production platforms could cause gasoline prices at the pump to spike. The Gulf Coast is home to nearly half the nation's refining capacity, while offshore the Gulf accounts for about 25 percent of domestic oil production and 15 percent of natural gas output. But oil prices actually tumbled to $111 a barrel as the storm weakened.

The nation was nervously watching to see how New Orleans would deal with Gustav almost exactly three years after Katrina flooded 80 percent of the city and killed roughly 1,600 people. Federal, state and local officials took a never-again stance after Katrina and set to work planning and upgrading flood defenses in the below-sea-level city.

The Federal Emergency Management Agency had cartons of food, water, blankets and other supplies to sustain 1 million people for three days ready to be distributed Monday — a contrast to Katrina, when thousands waited for rescue in a hot Superdome.

"With Katrina they didn't come and rescue us until the next day," said LaTriste Washington, 32, who stayed in her home during the 2005 hurricane and later was rescued by boat. She was in a shelter in Birmingham, Ala., Monday. "This time they were ready and had buses lined up for us to leave New Orleans."

President Bush, who skipped the Republican convention to monitor the storm from Texas, applauded the preparation and response efforts.

"The coordination on this storm is a lot better than on — than during Katrina," Bush said noting how the governors of Alabama, Louisiana, Mississippi and Texas had been working in concert. "It was clearly a spirit of sharing assets, of listening to somebody's problems and saying, `How can we best address them?'"

Meanwhile, Republicans hurried to turn the opening day of the convention into a fundraising drive for hurricane victims. Presidential candidate John McCain's wife and first lady Laura Bush were expected to address the shortened session and appeal for Gulf Coast help.

Both Republicans meeting in St. Paul and the campaign of Democratic nominee Barack Obama asked supporters to send a text message to a five-digit code that would make a donation to the Red Cross to help victims of the hurricane.

For all their apparent similarities, Hurricanes Gustav and Katrina were different in one critical respect: Katrina smashed the Gulf Coast with an epic storm surge that topped 27 feet, a far higher wall of water than Gustav hauled ashore.

Katrina was a bigger storm when it came ashore in August 2005 as a Category 3 storm and it made a direct hit on the Louisiana-Mississippi line. Gustav skirted along Louisiana's shoreline at "a more gentle angle," said National Weather Service storm surge specialist Will Shaffer.

Mayor Ray Nagin's emergency preparedness director, Lt. Col. Jerry Sneed, said residents might be allowed to return 24 hours after the tropical storm-force winds die down.

Other evacuated areas along the coast may be away from home for longer, said National Hurricane Center director Bill Read. The hurricane will likely slow down as it heads into Texas and possibly Arkansas, and those areas could then get 20 inches of rainfall.

Authorities reported seven deaths related to the storm, including four people fleeing the storm who were killed in Georgia when their car struck a tree. A couple in their 70s died when a tree struck their relatives' home in Baton Rouge. Another woman died in an accident driving between Baton Rouge and New Orleans. Before arriving in the U.S., Gustav was blamed for at least 94 deaths in the Caribbean.

In Mississippi, officials said a 15-foot storm surge flooded homes and inundated the only highways to coastal towns devastated by Katrina. Officials said at least three people near the Jordan River had to be rescued from the floodwaters. Elsewhere in the state, an abandoned building in Gulfport collapsed and a few homes in Biloxi were flooded.

The ground floor of the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino on Biloxi's casino row was flooded during the storm surge from Gustav. Hurricane Katrina smashed the casino three years ago shortly before it was to open.

Bobby Tuber, the casino's facility-grounds manager, said the storm put about 30 inches of water in the building but the casino itself, located on an upper level, and was not damaged.

"We're fine. We'll come out all well," Tuber said as he and others used a pump and a large hose to remove the water.

Gustav was the seventh named storm of the Atlantic hurricane season. The eighth grew into Hurricane Hanna Monday, followed quickly by the formation of Tropical Storm Ike a few hours later. Forecasters said it could come ashore in Georgia and South Carolina late in the week. "
