LUPE FIASCO: GRINDIN
FROM THE ARCHIVES (2006)
After abruptly cancelling his upcoming album and quitting Twitter last week, Lupe Fiasco was booted from the stage at a concert in Washington DC. His mic was cut after he repeated a phrase from 2011′s “Words I Never Said”—Gaza strip was getting bombed, Obama didn’t say shit/ That’s why I ain’t vote for him, next one either—for 40 minutes. “We are staunch supporters of free speech, and free political speech,” the event organizers wrote in a statement. “This was not about his opinions.” That show was just too “bizarrely repetitive,” “jarring,” and ultimately dissatisfying to the crowd, they reasoned. Below, take a look back at the simpler, skateboard-loving era of Lupe’s FADER #35 cover story, written upon the release of his Jay-Z-assisted major label debut in 2006.
