Lupe Fiasco – “Mural Jr.” (Live Performance) [Video]

Live. Lyricism. Lupe. Under the bridge. On these streets, where it matters. Unexpected but not uncharacteristic. Fiasco is only a ‘disaster’ to wack rappers’ careers. The rest of us in the real Hip-Hop Nation… we fux with dude heavy! Stuff like this is why.

For his live performance of “Mural Jr.” we took him underneath NYC’s Williamsburg Bridge for a shoot that nods to the ‘Drogas Wave’ theme. There’s a clear view of the East River waters next to the downtown Manhattan walkway ‘Lu prowled while rhyming a cappella. His inspired take on the track (the sequel to the ‘Tetsuo & Youth’ original, “Mural”) gains extra emotional clout by insightfully incorporating the local landscape. Hold up!

Even the bridge above had to make some noise and give love #HoldUp

A post shared by Tony Turntup (@tonyturnt) on

Puerto Rico! Hoooooo!

Somebody had to do it: that chant above and the show embedded above that. That’s Black Thought up top. Boom bap rapping and it don’t stop. Neither does this party with a purpose. So nod ’til you get a li’l loopy. Then catch Lupe after the jump. They were down there helping raise money for hurricane relief. Enjoy.

Lupe Fiasco – “Kneelin’ On Needles” (Prod. By Tek.Lun)

New Lupe! Yes, the Chi guy (like Chicago, dude) is back. Well, he is ’round the net dropping copies of his latest loosey – “Kneelin’ On Needles.” Beat by Tek.Lun done up rather nicely.

Lupe Fiasco – “Pharaoh Height” (Mixtape)

Six-song strong EP entitled “Pharaoh Height” from Chi Town’s Lupe. Billed as a mixtape, but the reaction from the listen is like a concentrated dose of dope. Lyrics, verbal interludes, beats that enhance the trance state of mind. Let this medicine work, Hip-Hop head!

Bernie Sanders need a Nike deal
Then I might consider that he might be real

See? Fiasco saying ‘ish like that (and that ain’t all) in just the second track (“Valleys”) will keep you tuned in track after track!

Lupe Fiasco – “LAW” (LoveAllWays) feat. SimonSayz

Tell her she’ll be safe with me… Hit the tellers and the safe with me…
Lupe Fiasco

Love & Hip-Hop on the same track (“LAW” produced by Floss & Flame). Let Lupe (and SimonSayz) slow things down going into the weekend for you (hopefully, for the both of you). This is a lady love-driven jawn to be certain, but gotta believe this’ll help you out, too, when you play it for her. Esp. since Lupe can’t be everywhere. Hahaaa!

Yasiin Bey Versus… Any Emcee? (Video)

No doubt you’ve heard (and seen) the shots let off in the video of Yasiin Bey (the artist formerly known as Mos Def) declaring on camera that no one can test or best him, Black Thought or King Los in a rhyme fight… that anyone who thought different could meet and settle the beef for big charity dollars and bragging rights. You heard about that, right? Well if you didn’t, you can play the embedded video above.

Raw, right? Started thinking about who might step to? How about Lupe Fiasco?

Hells yes! Lupe threw down the gauntlet like, “Once again…It’s ON!”

BUT… hold up… wait…

Consequence x Lupe Fiasco – “Countdown” feat. Chris Turner (Prod. By Mike Cash)

Is it the beat by Mike Cash and Consequence, his lyrics with Lupe’s, or the combination (accented by Chris Turner’s contribution) that make you bounce to this “Countdown” like you are actually riding dopeness? Dunno. Just feel the flow and enjoy.

Lupe Fiasco – “Adoration Of The Magi” feat. Crystal Torres (Video) [NSFW]

DAAAAMN! See what happens when you assume [that YouTube videos don’t show nudity]… you get enough ASS in a Lupe Fiasco video for U and ME! Wowzers. Not Safe For Work sticker for this for sure. However, you know Lupe goes deeper with his concepts. So, you might do this… run this video for “Adoration Of The Magi” (featuring Crystal Torres) one time, privately, with no sound. Then do another run for the full effect. Then watch for understanding. The time will NOT be wasted.

Lupe Fiasco – Tetsuo & Youth (Album Stream)

tetsuo-youth

It’s a Lupe album. So start there forming your opinions. But you really ought to take a listen, not just because it’s Lupe Fiasco; but add the likes of Ab-Soul, Trae Tha Truth, Famlay… And how could you not stream this (below). Out on iTunes for the copping, too. This is “Tetsuo & Youth.”

Lupe Fiasco – “Madonna” (And Other Mothers In The Hood) feat. Nikki Jean [Prod. By DJ Dahi]

Momma said, “My son never been no trouble…”
Lupe Fiasco

Complex rhyming, rhythms, and rap epitomize “Madonna.” Not the singer… You better NOT think Lupe would be dropping the a single off his “Tetsuo & Youth” project (due out January 20, 2015) just about a pop star. This is that thoughtful, beautiful Fiasco work. Listen.

Lupe Fiasco – “Deliver” (Video)


Lupe Fiasco’s new joint ‘Deliver’ featuring Ty Dolla $ign is on regular rotation on my radio show not only because it’s dope musically & one of my favorite singles as of late, but the commentary in his lyrics highlight something as simple as a getting a pizza delivered to be a difficult task for people who live in the ghetto. It’s something that people outside of those conditions very often take for granted.  Lupe artistic story of ‘Pizza delivery in the hood’ is a metaphor for many of the basic services the underprivileged just don’t have access to because of their environmental condition. Adequate employment, healthcare, housing, emergency services, transportation & so on could be synonymous with pizza delivery in the hood.  I sort of let our a brief reflective chuckle after watching this video because I was that same kid back in the day picking up the pizza from a different address. Peep the powerful new clip produced MoeZ’art by & directed by Alex Nazari. Lupe’s next project, ‘Tetsuo & Youth’, due January 20, 2015

Lupe Fiasco Speaks On Kendrick Lamar, Kanye West, Barack Obama, Nelson Mandela, His New Album And More (Video)

Can DJ Whoo Kid get Lupe Fiasco to let down his guard… for some real talk, his real opinions; even if they are controversial? Do you really think Lupe has been waiting for a Whoo Kid interview to do that? Of course not! Hell, you’ve seen what we posted on the Obama inauguration ‘Fiasco’ right here. With an upcoming album – “Tetsuo & Youth” – on the horizon, you know this interview ought to be interesting, if not fully loaded.
