The official word from the Squad

The Brooklyn Hip Hop Festival expands its stellar 2nd anniversary lineup to include Chicago native, Lupe Fiasco.

Hailing from the windy city, Lupe has recently gained notoriety for his verse and appearance in Kanye West's "Touch the Sky". His debut solo album, Lupe Fiasco's FOOD AND LIQUOR is slated for a June 27th release on 1st & 15th/ Atlantic Records.

In tune with the Brooklyn Hip Hop Festival mission statement, Lupe has a positive outlook on the mark he plans to leave on Hip Hop. "[When I retire], I want to step away on a positive note," says Lupe. "What you put out in the world comes back to you. You actually change the world with what you do. I want to put some good in the world."

The official word from The Chancellor:
With Lupe's album coming out the following Tuesday this is gonna be a big gig. He is the draft pick that everyone is waiting to see. Kind of like the Vince Young of Hip-Hop. Just as I think we were ahead of the curve last year with Rhymefest we are gonna put people on to Lupe.
