AHH Year in Review: Who Was The King of the Midwest :coughLUPEcough:

I told yall...Lu is topping everyone list...first post of 2009 BITCHES!

Lupe Fiasco:

Lupe spent the majority of 2008 riding the success of his critically acclaimed sophomore album The Cool. The crossover appeal of “Superstar” helped the album hit number one on Billboard Rap charts. The March 2008 video release of the poignant “Hip-Hop Saved My Life” pushed the album past gold and secured Lupe his first plaque.

Fiasco also took the time this year to partner with Coca Cola for the Refresh Your Flow Tour, a concert series aimed at empowering teens around the country from thirteen to seventeen years old that are active in their communities.

Next year, Lupe looks to again enthrall Hip-Hop fans with an ambitious three disc album named LupE.N.D. and the debut album from Child Rebel Soldier, a super group featuring Kanye West, Pharrell Williams, and Lupe.

Standout Songs:

“Hip-Hop Saved My Life,” “Superstar,” “Paris, Tokyo”

The Verdict:

This was tough but we went with Kanye. Yeah the auto-tune has to go, but Common did us a disservice with U.M.C. Kanye kept us entertained with more of his “I don’t try to be different, I am” antics. Also the production is still top notch kid.

Uhhhm...I don't know if you can read or not but they chose Kanye. Sorry.

I can't wait to see Lupe's Grammy acceptance speech! I need to collect all his mixtapes before they become difficult to obtain.
