Lupe Fiasco music video contest

Lupe on stage

The homies over at The Lupe Fiasco Show are giving aspiring music video directors an opportunity to get some shine, along with all sorts of cool prizes.  Go here for the complete rules, but basically, if you make a video for either “Gotta Eat,” “Just Might Be Okay,” or “And He Gets The Girl,” and you win, you’ll be featured on Lupe’s official website and get a bunch of autographed goodies.  So be creative, break out Final Cut Pro, and get busy…

Oh, and I don’t know if I’d recommend tackling “And He Gets The Girl,” unless you think you can top this web video some kid made a while back.  If you think you can, show and prove.  Good luck.

Lupe Fiasco – “I Gotcha (Itch13 Remix)”

Posted in Artists, Joints, Remixes on June 12th, 2008 by Hyphen


Being the huge Lupe fan that I am, I had to post this up for y’all to check out. A Chicago producer named Itch13 remixed Lu’s “I Gotcha” off Food & Liquor, and it turned out pretty dope. I still prefer the original, but this is a good one for the collection:

Now he’s got a gold plaque to go with his gold watch

Posted in Artists, Videos on May 29th, 2008 by Hyphen

What better way to start off my blogging than by bigging up one of my favorite MC’s in the game, Lupe Fiasco. Here’s some footage of Lu receiving his gold plaque for the ridiculously dope The Cool album. If you haven’t copped it yet, you’re sleeping. We need to support the good hip-hop major labels decide to put out, otherwise it’s ringtone rap for all. Special appearances from the homey Jason Salvador, Lupe’s murse, and I think my dude Niles is somewhere there in the crowd.

Lu’s on point with the idea of “selling positivity” and “feeling good morally” about what they release. Hopefully other artists follow suit. Keep it up Lu!
