mini bio: Wasalu Muhammad Jaco (born February 17, 1982),1 better known by his stage name Lupe Fiasco, is a Grammy-winning American hip-hop artist. He rose to fame in 2006 following the success of his critically acclaimed debut album, Lupe Fiasco's Food & Liquor. Prominent hip hop mogul Jay-Z describes him as a "breath of fresh air" in a new hip hop world characterized by mainstream pop and glamor, a sharp contrast with the widespread lyricism-focused rap of the 1990s, and critics have called him the "Hip-Hop Generation's Next Vanguard.
Lupe Fiasco's Food and Liquor
But if you've heard "The Show Goes On," you know that is a pile of horse shit. The tune and hook of "The Show Goes On" is blatantly take- er, i mean "SAMPLED LOL" from "Float On."
Fans like to excuse this as "corporate whoring, if lupe didnt make this song he wouldnt have a record!" Yeah, well how about you consider that when you say that Lupe is a "real and original" rapper? A "real and original" rapper wouldn't let a fucking record label company get in his way, you fucking posers.
A better definition for Lupe would be a modern version of Vanilla Ice, replacing under pressure with float on.
Listen to some REAL rap.
