Hip hop's Lupe Fiasco has grown a legion of underground fans that are ready to start an uprising. This uprising continues when the Generation LASER tour hits the EMU Convocation Center on Saturday, November 5.
Lupe Fiasco is fresh off the release of L.A.S.E.R.S. a critically acclaimed album that needed a push to see the light of day.
Fiasco got his first big break in 2004 when he signed with Atlantic Records. Here he got the chance to work with Jay-Z and Kanye West while recording his 2006 debut album, Food & Liquor. This album and first single "Kick Push" earned him three Grammy nominations.
His unique sound and intriguing lyrics continued on his next release, 2007's The Cool. This album solidified his reputation as a MC with the ability to shock listeners while making them think, laugh, and dance – all without relying on vulgarity or standard hip-hop themes.
Fiasco has been quiet for the past four years while creating his latest work of art. Before the release of L.A.S.E.R.S. his fans grew strong and tired of waiting for new material. Over 32,000 fans signed a petition to demand the release of the album by Atlantic Records. When that wasn't enough, several hundred of these rabid fans gathered in front of the New York City Atlantic Records offices on October 15, 2010. These demands have led to the release of L.A.S.E.R.S. on March 8, 2011.
Fiasco's music and new hit singles "The Show Goes On", "Words I Never Said" and "Never Forget You" proves that it can inspire. Prime Social Group presents this inspiration live at the Generation LASER tour on Saturday, November 5 at the EMU Convocation Center.
