Lupe Fiasco ft. Trey Songz – Out Of My Head (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on July 3rd, 2011 by Hyphen

I find it kind of comical that so many people, myself and even Lupe included, had issues with various elements of L.A.S.E.R.S. and yet it’s been an incredibly successful commercial album for him.  “The Show Goes On” is one of the biggest chart topping records of the year and the new single, “Out Of My Head,” is getting considerable airplay as well.  Hopefully that continues now that the video is out.

Lupe Fiasco ft. Skylar Grey – Words I Never Said (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on May 8th, 2011 by Hyphen

I just realized that I Tweeted and Facebooked this, but never posted it on the blog. You know a record is dope and a MC is incredible when a beat and hook that most hip-hop heads would generally pass on can be turned into a joint like this…

Lupe Fiasco on Sound Session

Posted in Artists, Interviews, Sound Session on February 10th, 2011 by Hyphen

Long time friend of SNSS, Lupe Fiasco returned to Seattle to speak with J. Moore and I on 1-14-11. We broadcast live on and talked all about his long awaited Lasers project, his rabid fan base, his life away from the stage/studio, and much more.  In the first half of the interview, Lu discussed how his lyrics impact listeners, how he’s often misinterpreted in the media, his hobbies when relaxing at home, and more.

In the second half of the interview, Lu discussed his car collection, his favorite albums of 2010, his plans to become an author, Lasers, and he even spit an acapella verse from the project.

Lastly, we opened up the floor to questions from viewers who were logged in, watching it live.

Hopefully you enjoy this candid conversation with one of our favorite MC’s in the industry and just an all around good guy.  I wish we recorded footage of the meet & greet we held right before this (remember when we gave out tickets?) so you could all see how Lu’s lyrics have really impacted the lives of his fans.

Support Lasers when it drops March 8th!

Meet Lupe Fiasco on Friday, Jan. 14th!

Posted in Artists, Interviews, Sound Session on January 12th, 2011 by Hyphen

If you’ve listened to Sunday Night Sound Session at any point since our debut on KUBE six years ago, you already know that Lupe Fiasco is one of our favorite rappers.  Not only is he an incredible MC, but he’s one of the most forward thinking, intelligent, socially responsible, and innovative artists that we have in hip-hop.  On top of all that, he’s just a cool dude who has appeared on our show numerous times and always shows us, and Seattle, lots of love.

On Friday, January 14th, you…that’s right, YOU…can meet Lupe in person as he comes through the KUBE studios to hang out, sign autographs, talk with listeners, and discuss his highly anticipated upcoming album, Lasers.

If you’re able to come to the station in downtown Seattle from 11am to noon on Friday, the 14th, here are the details on how to win an invite to this meet and greet:

Tell us what your favorite Lupe verse is and why.  Email your answer to and if selected, we’ll notify you by Thursday at noon.

We’ll also pick a few random winners who retweet any of our announcements for this event on our Twitter feeds:

Be creative and thoughtful!  Just like Lupe.  Hope to see you Friday!

Lupe Fiasco – I’m Beamin’ (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on May 2nd, 2010 by Hyphen

I would post some commentary, but I’m frantically going through music to figure out what to play on Sound Session tonight.  Besides, you don’t need my take on this.  It’s Lupe.  It’s dope.
