Lupe Fiasco is one of contemporary rap’s great tricksters. In lyrics and flow, Lupe blends straight-edge intellectualism with a trap aesthetic. After getting his start over a decade ago with the album Lupe Fiasco’s Food & Liquor, Lupe blew the scene up with his sophomore album Lupe Fiasco’s The Cool. Nor is the thirty-five year old rapper’s staying power on the wane: his most recent album DROGASLight is chock full of creative bangers like “Dopamine Lit” and “Jump.”
Lupe recently lit up Surf Lodge with a mixture of old and new tracks. The crowd was partying at an 11 out of 10, making for yet another epic weekend of Surf Lodge’s Summer Music Series.
