Lupe Fiasco keeps it real

lupefiasco.jpgMuch respect to brother Lupe Fiasco. I was reading a short biography on his AOL music session and he said:

Lupe maintains a firm grip on all matters relating to his career, something that can be directly attributed to his complete abstinence from all forms of drugs and alcohol, in accordance with his Muslim faith.

“It seperates you from the pack,” he says of his drug-free lifestyle. “I’ve never drank alcohol a day in my life. I’ve never taken any form of drugs. I don’t go to clubs unless I have to. Even with my entourage — we’ll do a show at a club, they’ll take me to the hotel and go back [to the club]. But everyone has their vices. I have mine.”

  1. Assalaamu alaykum MR.

    I found something unusual about this rapper on Wikipedia.com. Whilst reading through the article I came across this sentence: “However, just recently Lupe has converted to the Protestant religion…”. Do you think Wikipedia are mistaken??

    I just checked Wikipedia and it doesn’t say anything like that. It says he is Muslim.

  3. Yes but I presume they do have some controls in place. If not, then I suppose it is up to us to correct this information on Wikipedia.

  4. I think MR has just edited Wikipedia as the references to him being a Protestant are now no longer there….mmmmm…

    so why go to the club to perform…….

    Thats how he makes his money. No performances = no cash.

    You could say that he can perform elsewhere, but music is always linked to the club. Even the “big” and rich rappers continue to perform in clubs, even in “inner cities.”

    Anybody can edit wikipedia and articles are constantly changing and being edited. False info can be added to wikipedia at anytime. False info can take days before somebody catches it and removes it. Wikipedia should be used with caution.

  7. Yes, but the genius of Wikipedia is that since millions are always vieing it, it auto regulates itself. People in general are after the truth so when something whack comes up it doesn’t take long for it to re-adjust for a more correct version. Brilliant idea, wikipedia that is.

  8. yo i got Lupes album, the cover is sick, in the far right corner theres the Quran, i swear its there, i have his album, if you look real closley in english it says “the holy Quran”
