First thing of course was the release of The Cool (even though technically it was released in 2007 but who cares lol)
and the shout out heard around the world lol...Thank You again Sir Fiasco
The Cool Tour 2008
This tour was SOLD OUT PEOPLE! Every damn show Lu and the FNF fam killed it...The Femmes embarked on our "mini tour" heading out to 4 of the shows on the East Coast leg of the tour...what a adventure that was lol Shout out to Optimus! and Lupe for denying us at the signing in Baltimore but then generously inviting us backstage at the show only to FINALLY sign our cds :)
Lupe Fiasco wins Grammy for "Day Dreamin'"!!!
Even though Lu was under the weather and unable to attend the awards ceremony...he took home the Grammy for Best Urban/Alternative Performance for Day Dreamin' with Jill Scott...His mother and sister accepted the award for him....CONGRATS Lu!
Lupe announced that Kanye West, Pharrell Williams and himself have formed a supergroup that will go by the name of CRS (Child Rebel Soldiers) The first taste of CRS that we got this year was a track called "US Placers" that was featured on Kanye's mixtape...not only was the track DOPE AS ALL HELL...but it got the attention of Rolling Stone...with NO PUSH WHAT SO EVER...Nothing else was released and some are speculating that this supergroup will never even happen. I guess we will see in 2009!
The Glow in the Dark Tour 2008
Amazing, Amazing AMAZING SHOW! When Kanye announced that he was going to be touring this year and he decided to bring Rihanna, N.E.R.D, and LUPE FIASCO along with him i think thats the best thing that some of us could have heard in a long time...Lu opened the show...and many of his fans complained of missing his performance...all in all the tour was definitely a good look for Fiasco...i think he gained new fans and got crazy exposure from it...
"Superstar" Takes Over the worlddddddddddd ha ha!!!
Okay maybe not THE WORLD but damn that song was EVERYWHERE! Everwhere from VH1 to BET from Urban to Churban radio...Superstar was there...becoming by far his biggest record to date and going PLATINUM! The success of Superstar FINALLY got Lupe on shows such as TRL, 106 and Park and every damn late show you can think of lol...Hell froze over when Superstar was voted #1 onto 106 and Parks countdown...being the first time in a while im sure that any of us even bothered to watch the show....LUPE FIASCO IS HEREEEEEEEEEEEE lol
The Expansion of 1st and 15th
In 2008 Lu signed 2 new acts to his FNF label...1st was He Say, She Say, a funky boy/girl duo from the Chi that consist of Drea (vocalist, songwriter) and Mano (DJ, Producer)...the latest signing however had everyone on the net screaming...WTF!!!!!!!!
And that was Hey Champ! Cool guys, Dope Music...its no wonder Lu signed them
Lupe Fiasco's The Cool Goes Gold!
This BY FAR being the BIGGEST IMO of Lu's many accomplishments this year...The Cool becoming CERTIFIED GOLD BITCHES! Nothing else needs to be said...just watch the video...CONGRATS Lupe!!!!!!!!!!!
There were plenty of other things that Lu has done this year that deserves recognition...but these i feel are the major ones...as the year is ending...you can see that his hard work is paying off and he is finally getting the credit he deserves...being recognized by any and every damn blog, magazine, you name it...Lupe Fiasco is at the top of everyones list and HE IS the Best MC of our time...things can only get better in 2009 with the release of the first disc from his final album LupEND, a live album, a concert dvd (what we all have been waiting for lol),and releases from the FNF roster. FNF is just beginning to shine people!!!! The Lupe Fiasco Show would like to thank FNF for everything they have done to support this blog...and we will continue to support FNF in return....WE NOT GOING NO WHERE BITCHES! haha!
See yall in 09'

1) Lupe Fiasco - "Hip Hop Saved My Life"
"A deserved choice, a wonderful ode to the genre that we all love so much. The beat is simple and melodic, helping Lupe to drop a narrative dedicated to Slim Thug about the rise of a rapper. If any song has ever described the aspirations of a hungry MC as well as this, I have yet to hear it"
Click here to see the entire list
Glad to see a track other than "Superstar" get some love...Lu also took him Artist of the Year over at the Yo! Raps Awards...as if thats a surprise to anyone lol
Can't wait to see him steal the Grammy's :)

"Lupe Fiasco will be doing his part this holiday season by handing out winter coats to needy kids in his Chicago hometown.
Chi-Town’s Channel 7 news reports that the Grammy-award winning MC chipped in $5,000 in an effort to help families in the area. He has already given out hundreds of jackets on the East Side of town and plans on heading to his West Side neighborhood later today."
Nice to see Lu doing his part in improving his community :)
Sunday, December 28, 2008
Im HELLA EXCITED my big homies N*E*R*D have a show scheduled at VCU on Feb 6th, 2009...Im DEF gonna be in the building for that...I love Pharrell as yall know...he is sooooooo dope lol as well as Shae (who im naming my first born after) and Chad...and love my big brother Fam-Lay! so i gotta support...i caught up with the band back in October and made a nice lil video for my blog THE SHAMELESS PLUG...
STARRRRRRRRRRRRR TRAKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKK :)
Lupe Fiasco has this annoying habit of titling his albums with his own name in front (there's a term for that, but I can't remember at the moment), and it's pissing me off. Why? Is there a point to that? No, of course there isn't. Anyway, this album, before it's release, was originally described to me as "a story...you know, about the kid from the '"The Cool", and Lupe basically expands on it." Sounds promising, right? What follows is a bashing of the public perception regarding AIDS, video games, and other randomness. Lupe went and reached far out for subject matter, which all somehow ties to materialism. Did it work?
1. BABA SAYS COOL FOR THOUGHT (FEAT IESHA JACO)
A spoken word introduction. Short, but still a waste of time. And I'm not sure that anyone considers gentrification to be "cool". Next!
2. FREE CHILLY (FEAT SARAH GREEN & GEMSTONES)
Another little uh...song, if you'd can call it that. A little tribute and call-to-arms for Lupe's imprisoned friend and partner "Chilly", who received 44 years for drug distribution, I believe. Honestly, this is not really worth listening to more than once.
3. GO GO GADGET FLOW
This wins the award for corniest title ever. The song is fast-paced, as you can imagine, but isn't that rewarding.
4. THE COOLEST
(I suppose calling your song "The Cooler" would recall vivid memories of William H. Macy's junk in The Cooler, which is why Lupe skipped from "The Cool" to the "-est".) Lupe's hook-writing abilities have not gotten any better. My solution: Do an album without the hooks. Just straight verses all the way through, with the music switched up a bit every four minutes or so. Problem solved.
5. SUPERSTAR (FEAT MATTHEW SANTOS)
The first single, with some dude named Matthew Santos, who, due to the relative success of this song, did fairly decent numbers himself, despite the fact that he doesn't sing all that well, and I've used about one hundred commas in this sentence. The song isn't bad though. (Wait, Matthew Santos has songs of his own, not just Lupe Fiasco feature appearances? I always believed he was a studio singer that was miraculously conceived in the recording booth right before he made his first appearance on Lupe Fiasco's Food & Liquor.)
6. PARIS, TOKYO
Well, ironically, this sounds like a Tribe cut, despite Lupe never hearing Midnight Marauders. Interesting. (Someone should put that in his Christmas stocking, as he's truly missing out on some good shit.) That being said, it's a smooth, quality song.
7. HI-DEFINITION (FEAT SNOOP DOGG & POOH BEAR)
I've heard many people lose their minds at the thought of Snoop being featured on conscious rapper Lupe Fiasco's album. However, the beat works, Snoop doesn't have much of an impact, and this song makes for great summer cruising. (If you say so.)
8. GOLD WATCH
Confession time: I've never listened to more than 30 seconds of this song. The beat is that fucking atrocious. (And yet I liked it. Funny, that.)
9. HIP-HOP SAVED MY LIFE (FEAT NIKKI JEAN)
Average hook by Nikki Jean (yeah, I have no clue who that is, either), but the verses are alright. Simple, yet effective production.
10. INTRUDER ALERT (FEAT SARAH GREEN)
Oh, this song? I was going to listen to this, but then I just went on living my life.
11. STREETS ON FIRE
Much better, despite the depressing subject matter of AIDS. I really like this one though.
12. LITTLE WEAPON (FEAT BISHOP G & NIKKI JEAN)
Ridiculous drumroll, courtesy of Patrick Stump of Fall Out Boy. What the fuck? (Indeed.) It doesn't really matter, though, as this song is awesome. (Yeah, I wasn't expecting Andrew to go in that particular direction, either.)
13. GOTTA EAT
I'm not hungry, but thanks, though. Much appreciated.
14. DUMB IT DOWN (FEAT GEMSTONES & GRAHAM BURRIS)
Incredible bassline, which makes for a gritty track. Find the lyrics online, read them along with the song, and then pick your jaw off the ground. Lather, rinse, repeat.
15. HELLO / GOODBYE (FEAT UNKLE)
Takes a little bit to get started, but Lupe shows why some consider him to be one of the best newcomers, relatively speaking. The track ends oddly though.
16. THE DIE (FEAT GEMSTONES)
17. PUT YOU ON GAME
Couldn't get into it. To be fair, I didn't try that hard, but I shouldn't have to.
18. FIGHTERS (FEAT MATTHEW SANTOS)
Matthew Santos, otherwise know as the Magical Magician, reappears here. He sounds much better, and this simple and effective closing to the album works extremely well. One of my favorite tracks.
19. GO BABY (FEAT GEMSTONES)
Not really necessary at all. The album could have done without it and still work just fine.
FINAL THOUGHTS: At nineteen tracks, Lupe Fiasco's The Cool is an exhausting listen. The production, while still in-house from Lupe's camp, has gotten better, and more adaptive to Lupe's style. There are some slow points and some production duds, but for the most part, the beats are functional. Lupe's wordplay continues to be solid, although his subject matter can be a little bit bizarre for some people.
BUY OR BURN?: I would recommend a purchase. There are some absolute shit-bricks, and this album would be better as maybe a thirteen-to-fifteen track endeavor. It's worth your money however, and I'm wondering what he's got in store for his so-called "final" effort, the three-disc LupEND. (Why Lupe's opting to skip the double-disc in favor of the more pretentious three-disc offer, we may never know.) We'll see. In the meantime, pick this one up - it's pretty solid.
BEST TRACKS: "Paris, Tokyo"; "Streets on Fire"; "Little Weapon"; "Dumb It Down"; "Fighters"
Thoughts? It's nice to know that even after a year after it's release The Cool is still urging bloggers to review the album...there was another review on that site also CLICK HERE to read it

Okay...was Superstar REALLY the hottest remix of the year over Lollipop and Shawty Lo? Lets not be stans for a second and lets be REAL...JEEZY'S VERSE ALONE on the Dey Know remix shyts on the Superstar remix...YEAH I SAID IT! and i dont even like Shawty Lo-ser...but that remix is def in my ipod...and Kanye and Wayne with the Lollipop remix you COULD NOT escape from...they shyt was everywhere...
Im not saying that i didnt like the remix...T.I's verse was dope as hell and Jeezy (who i happen to like a whole lot) did his thing...Lu has had one hell of a year and excited to see that hes getting the much deserved shine he should have BEEN getting since this negro came out...BUT...that Shawty Lo remix made me actually like the fool for a hot minute and that says alot lol...
go head and leave comments saying i shouldn't say stuff like this cuz this is a lupe fan blog but SO WHAT! I can have an opinion not biased to Lu every once in a while hes not gonna e-shoot me!!!
"Lupe Fiasco returned in 2008 with his album 'The Cool' which was actually a song from his previous album 'Food and Liquor'. His kick off single 'Superstar' blazed mainstream American radio solidifying his name among Hip Hop's hottest artists. Lupe Fiasco even earned a shout out in T.I.'s '56 Bars' making T.I.'s list of Hip Hop greats. He definitely left his mark this year and fans are eagerly awaiting his third and supposedly final album 'LupE.N.D'."
DO I SMELL VICTORY AT THE GRAMMY'S LADIES AND GENTS???
Friday, December 26, 2008
well u dont see me...but Lu is rapping to me on the first verse...testing to make sure i knew the lyrics...and whats worse is he ran directly to me first so if i DIDN'T know the lyrics to THE COOL im sure Lu would have put me on BLAST that night...but IM A PROFESSIONAL STAN...so OF COURSE i know the lyrics...hence the reason he started it all off with ya girl...he also did sunshine to me that night for like the 4th time...ahh mannnnn MEMORIES!

Here's what he said about THE GRAMMY AWARD WINNING AND 8 TIME NOMINATED Lupe Fiasco and The Cool :)
"Lupe Fiasco is one of the most slept on artists. A lot of people didn’t clock the depth of his lyrical skills on this project, and he may have needed a couple more ‘Superstars’ to get that mass media attention.
The Carter 3 is hot, as ‘808s & Heartbreak’, but ‘The Cool’ is a body of work in the same way that ‘College Dropout’, or ‘Black & Both sides are. This is pure Hip-Hop, one of those classic albums where you don’t have to press the forward button on any track, and every time you listen to it, you clock a deeper meaning behind what he was saying.
‘Streets on fire’ is my favourite joint, his performance at Somerset House in 08′ was exceptional, he has longevity in this Hip-Hop game even though he keeps threatening to retire."
Damn anyone who disagrees with Semtex!!!! lmao
"If you want to watch music videos from artists like Diddy, Missy Elliot or Lupe Fiasco, don’t bother going to YouTube. Warner Music Group has yanked their videos from Youtube (nearly 20 percent of the market) after negotiations with Google (YouTube’s owner) failed. “We are working actively to find a resolution with YouTube that would enable the return of our artists’ content to the site,” the label said in a statement. “Until then, we simply cannot accept terms that fail to appropriately and fairly compensate recording artists, songwriters, labels and publishers for the value they provide.” Warner basically wants to make more money from their videos online and YouTube has been very slow converting their massive traffic into income. Sites that are profiting from their content, like Hulu.com, are consistently growing. Warner Music Group videos are still available on MTV and MySpace."
Shout out to James on Youtube that had like FULL LUPE SHOWS on youtube and they straight suspended his account...dirty bastards!!
Im not sure if this is OFFICIAL or not but here's what one site is reporting...
"Lupe Fiasco,who is what I feel, the most unappreciated artist of his time, has announced that he will be leaving his home at Atlantic Records. There no word on whether or not Atlantic's obviously outdated marketing team was the cause, or a lack of money. We all know that the music industry is in the shitter, so there's a big chance it could have been a budget cut. You know commercial music is always a priority, to real Rythm And Poetry. But he will release a final album in 2009."
It actually kinda makes sense...since LUPEND is his last album...and Atlantic has sucked over the years as far as the push behind Fiasco goes...so im not gonna say this is confirmed...cuz i didn't see this posted on no other site but this one...until Lu REALLY comes out and announces it...then ill say its confirmed :)

Finally in 2005 Sarah got the chance to show her star power as part of the now defunct R&B group Risque. Through her involvement with Risque, Sarah found her current home, 1st and 15th Productions, which was founded by Charles "Chilly" Patton and Grammy Award winning Hip-Hop artist Lupe Fiasco. Both "Chilly" and Lupe have been a driving force behind this vocal powerhouse, featuring the dynamic songstress on both of Lupe Fiasco's studio albums: on the tracks "Real" and "He Say, She Say" on Lupe Fiasco's Food & Liquor; and "Free Chilly" and "Intruder Alert" on Lupe Fiasco's The Cool. Aside from Lupe's album project's, Sarah was featured on a track on DJ Deckstream's Soundtracks entitled "Can You Let Me Know" alongside Lupe Fiasco and Verbal, a popular Japanese MC. Most recently she was featured on Lupe's "Paris Tokyo" Remix with Q-Tip and Pharrell Williams.
In early 2008, Sarah began touring the world, wowing every crowd as a featured act on Lupe Fiasco's "The Cool Tour". The tour was a sold out venture and it formally introduced Sarah to her soon to be audience. After completing "The Cool Tour" she went out on the biggest tour of 2008, Kanye West's The Glow In The Dark Tour. After showcasing her talents in the U.S., she began to tour Europe and performed in such exotic cities as Paris, London, Amsterdam and Sweden. Sarah's star is only just beginning to shine. With her debut album slated to drop in 2009, she is prepared to show the world her amazing vocal ability, and create a forceful and lasting presence in the of world R&B.
Pretty Dope :) she also has in email setup where u can send any booking/press inquires, questions etc... email@example.com and don't forget add her on MYSPACE

The Shameless Plug Interview w/ U-N-I from The Shameless Plug on Vimeo.
Shout out to U-N-I for showing love! i have an interview with Anthony Hamilton tomorrow so hopefully that will be up sooner than i got this lol...As always you can check the rest of my interviews including one with Drea from He Say,She Say and with VA finest Fam-Lay and N.E.R.D all over at The Shameless Plug!
"Lupe is like the coolest nerd ever... in a very good way.. let me explain before I get bashed ...who would have ever thought your favorite rapper would be wearing glasses with normal clothes & not nice ice or stuff like that ... Lupe is an un-ordinary rapper, Lu is in my top 5 rappers of all time because he just does him ... thats' what makes him Lupe Fiasco"
" was Blackbeard till i brought the Roc into ur ships "
Blackbeard was a famous English Pirate. He crashes into rocks, where as lu means he brought the "Roc" as in Jay Z. had to post this again
just found the meaning to that line on youtube ... lupe is so clever"
"The problem is.. to me, Lupe makes or breaks these tracks (usually/always it's makes)... the production just isn't special. Of course he needs beats that don't overprower his lyricism, but if he would work with the best producers in the game, the beats don't have to overpower him, just add an additional treat to his lyricism... He hasn't really ever tried to get more famous production (Ok, Kanye West & Neptunes each gave him a beat, but I think they've got more in store than just these two beats...), and I'd like him to just try it... Dr. Dre/Premier/insertotherlegendhere, why not?"
"a few lyrical songs doesn't make you one of the greatest emcees of all time, it's more than just lyrics (cuz trust me if it was I'd be in the top 10 lol). I'm not saying Lupe isn't a talented artist, but come on...top 10? You can't base it off of lyrics, cuz so many people have had lyrical songs in their careers. "

This has got to be the most RIDICULOUS attempt at trying to get some shine...WHAT IN FASHION HELL can a fucking NO NAME, WHO GIVES A WOOT BRAND have against a DAMN HIP-HOP ARTIST! I mean I understand BEEF WITH PURPOSE...but this shyt right here is just IM A SAY FUCK LUPE CUZ HE PUTTING OUT A CLOTHING LINE THATS IN SAME LEAGUE AS OURS SO HES OBVIOUS COMPETITION AND NO ONE IS GONNA BUY OUR SHYT...Seriously people...and then gonna put "FUCK LUPE" in the corner on some bitch shyt thinking ain't nobody gonna see it...GET THE FUCK OUTTA HERE TRIUMVIR!
The fact that a fashion brand would stoop SO LOW as to go and start some random ass beef with a rapper just proves that dumbasses like the people behind Triumvir are willing to do any and everything to get they stuff seen...ISN'T LU GOING TO LAUNCH FALLACY OF ROME SOON!?!?!??!?!?!?! SO BASICALLY THESE DIRTY IGNORANT BASTARDS ARE TRYNA FUCK UP HIS OPERATION?!?!? which puts them in the HATER category...I didn't even wanna post this shyt and give those douche bags the shine they wanted but this is just dumb as hell...Seriously...like HIGHSCHOOL dumb as hell...its like me hating on the popular girl at school because I started a club and she started the same club after me but got more members so I make a damn picture that says FUCK YOU! ...doesn't make any damn sense...thats prolly not the right analogy but you know what im trying to say...
This so reminds me of the "Kill Lupe" T-Shirts that some people put out (that's how relevant they are I don't even remember the name) and the extremely retarded beef with TK (him going on BEEF made him look like even more of a dumb ass). When is somebody gonna come at Lupe with some ACTUAL BEEF? This petty hater shyt is getting ridiculous...Could it be possible that Lupe is THAT DOPE that nobody can't ever come at him?
Im sorry...I still can't get over that these niggas reallly just posted a wallpaper and put FUCK LUPE..! in the corner of that bitch...SOMEBODY IS HELLA SALTY!!!!!!!!!!!!
I bet those bastard are bumping The Cool as I type this very message...
and I hope they go outta business :)
Im ranting...i apologize...im just REALLY annoyed with that mess...for the record it could have been artist that this could have happened too but since its Lu of course im gonna be EXTRA annoyed..but if someone told you that clothing brand was starting beef with a rapper no apparant reason given whatsoever what would your reaction be? Just like mine when i first saw this...WTF!!!! lol

Personally i don't think lyricism is over. Lupe,Common,Mos Def,Kanye,Q-Tip,Pharrel among others are big-and i don't see them dying out soon. I personally have a deep respect for lyricism and i created a blog dedicated to it. (LiveLyricism)
Im salty cuz I hate T-Clown but this song goes extra hard...the vid is ass because it looks just like the Can't Believe It video lol
Lupe Fiasco x T-Clown Collabo on LupEND...autotune and all...and I think Lu is even gonna grow dreads...him and bishop gonna finally go cop them grills...and wear ridiculous clothing that makes him look like he straight out of the nuthouse (VMA red carpet outfit X 10 bitches!) and if we are lucky...soulja boy will hop on the track too...
all that and Lu would go platinum in 72 hours WATCH! LMAO!
I heard Lu was in the building for his party...and I heard (from people who attended) that it was absolutely crazy! Vashtie was in the building and she post pics and such over at her blog...Click here for more
Happy Belated B-Day to Mikey and Shout out to Vashtie!
