Lupe Fiasco – Muhammad Walks

Chicago Muslim Rapper, Lupe Fiasco (Record Label’s Site), takes Kanye West’s Jesus Walks beat and makes his own lyrics entiteld ‘Muhammad Walks’. He’s so good that Kanye West featured him on his ‘Late Registration’ album on the track ‘Touch the Sky’.

Yes, Lupe Fiasco is a Muslim from Chicago. This proves that Kanye West has Muslim influence from my last past entiteld Kanye West: Muslim?.

Lupe Fiasco’s real name is Wasalu Muhammad Jaco. On his website’s biography page (the record label’s site) talking about his album, ‘Food and Liquor’, he says:

‘The title reflects on me being Muslim and being from the streets,’ says Lupe about FOOD & LIQUOR. ‘In Chicago, instead having bodegas like in New York, the majority of the corner stores are called ‘Food and Liquors.’ The store is where everything is at, whether it be the wine-o hanging by the store, or us as kids going back and forth to the store to buy something. The ‘Food’ is the good part and the ‘Liquors’ is the bad part. I try to balance out both parts of me.’

Finally here is the song:

      Assalaamu allaykum, what up?

      Yeah, Lupe is a mad rapper though man, heard about him being Muslim a while ago. Masha’Allah! Allah has showed him the way.

      Check out his song “Tilted” on Food & Liquor, awesome track.

      […] And because so many people hit my blog looking for Lupe’s “Muhammad Walks”, here’s a link to a site that actually has the track for download (you can also find it on one of Lupe’s mixtapes, offhand I can’t remember which one though). It’s weird that less than a year ago, I first heard about Lupe when some people on Okayplayer were saying Kanye bit the idea for his Diamonds remix (the “conscious” one) from Lupe’s reworking of the original and nobody knew who Lupe was and now he’s making magazine covers left and right. […]

      Hamdo Lillah, cuz a lot of people last years became muslims, i knew that Lupe is muslim since he was birth my messange to Lupe “keep ur head up because ur MUSLIM”.and i hope that more people know the truth about Islam, and plz forgive us cuz we didn’t present Islam as must be.

      may Allaah save us from these signs of the endtimes and imitating disbelievers.As for my Brother Lupe, may Allaah guide him to His obedience and away from what brings His wrath,one of which is music.

      as salaamu alaikum. i like lupe fiasco because he’s the real deal. i have yet to see one article on him that hasn’t said he is a devout muslim! he doesn’t drink, or smoke, and when he performs at a club he gets dropped off a his hotel while everybody else goes back. That’s while he says that “the groupie situation is a no go”. Subhan’Allah. he’s even sacrificed certain endorsements due to his faith. i read he didn’t do mcdonald’s because he didn’t want to endorse any pork products. they could have at least let him do filet-o-fish. plus, if his picture is in a magazine he can’t be next to any alcoholic advertisement. to have that kind of conviction in today’s entertainment business is rare.

    29. WAEIL OMAR November 18th, 2007 at 8:27 pm

      salamwalikum . i like wat ur doin my muslim brother.hang tight and keep makin songs bout islam.let the young people around the world understand that islam is not bad. from your muslim brother. Waeil Mahamoud Hassan Omar. London
