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:

  17. 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.

  18. yo wassup yo lupe i luv dis song der r alot of muslim rappaz lik chamilionar,tpain,ice cub,rakim,akon nd lots more but none rep us none show the world wat we r dis da shit yall!

  19. 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.

  20. 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

    Asalamu Alaykum

  22. Hi again i just want to say HAPPY BITHDAY (may allah give you what you want)
    And also i just wanted to give you one idea i think you shold go to the GPU (it’s the get together as one ummah in LONDON) JUST A THOUGHT!

  23. i think this song has a kickass beat and really speaks to people muslim or not it’s wonderful. i love kanye and i love lupe they are basically part of a group of rappers i like and mashallah that he is muslim and may god lead him on the right path and help him bring out more awesome songs
