MTV, 5am and 95bFM presents the miraculous mic marvel, the one and only, Lupe Fiasco! Direct from Chicago for one exclusive Auckland show Studio Saturday 16th August.
Lupe Fiasco's recent Big Day Out performance is one that left the uninitiated drop jawed, and with Fiasco's main man Gemini along for the ride, and a massive local lineup featuring P Money, PNC and David Dallas (Frontline), this intimate club show promises to obliterate the hype and raise the bar of live hip hop to new heights.
Lupe Fiasco has been rapping since the eighth grade and quickly rose up the ranks with his flawless flow and lyrical dexterity.
His talents were quickly spotted by Jay -Z ,helping Lupe to unleash his devastating debut solo LP “Food & Liquor”, featuring Fiasco's renowned conscious flows over devastating production from the likes of Nottz and Soundtrack. “Food & Liquor” has shot Lupe from a relative unknown, into the minds and hearts of true coinsures everywhere. His mic mastery has become gold certified as his ability to ride the funk, epic orchestral strings, and straight up bottom heavy beat thuggery has placed him alongside Nas, Jay-z and Kanye West as one of the 21st Century's best MC's.
