Born Wasalu Muhammad Jaco in Chicago, Illinois, Fiasco broke onto the hip-hop scene in 2006 with his debut album, Lupe Fiasco’s Food & Liquor. The lead singles off the debut were “Kick, Push” and “Daydreamin” featuring R&B singer Jill Scott, which won the Grammy for Best Urban/Alternative Song in 2008.
The most recent album Tetsuo & Youth released in January 2015 is one not to sleep on. This album and The Cool released in 2007 are at the top of my list as favs!
In addition to making his own music, Lupe has his own record label, 1st and 15th Entertainment and also works to help people in his hometown.
Happy Born Day Lupe!!!!!
