Lupe Fiasco is going tour this year
Chicago MC Lupe Fiasco has just revealed that he will embark on a Food & Liquor tour. He made the announcement via his Twitter page with one of his Brooklyn shows already sold out.
His Food & Liquor album deemed by music lovers as a classic released in 2006 and was executive produced by Jay-Z with production from The Neptunes and Kanye West. Lupe gave no particular reason as to why he is touring only performing the Food & Liquor album being there is no anniversary for the album, however maybe his documentary Beat N Path he did on his travels to China may give some insight.
“One thing my father would always say is, ‘Go to the homeland. Find somebody to teach you.’ And now I actually have the opportunity to do what my father always wanted us to do,” Lupe said in a trailer for the documentary.
“Before the music, it was all about the martial arts,” Lupe said at the time of the series’ release. “I trained in the martial arts with my father since I was about 3 years old and it’s always been a passion of mine. Little hints of it pop up here and there in my music, but for the most part, my fans never really saw my martial arts side. They only know me for being a musician and a rapper. Hopefully this show will introduce people to that side of me.”
Food & Liquor produced the hits such as the skateboard anthem “Kick, Push,” “I, Gotcha,” and “Daydreamin” featuring Jill Scott. To purchase tickets for the Food & Liquor tour click here
