About Lupe Fiasco
A decade after Lupe Fiasco exploded onto the hip-hop scene with his seminal 2006 debut Food & Liquor, the Chicago native is closing the chapter on his career with his most visualized projects yet. The independent rapper, who parted ways with his former label Atlantic Records following the release of 2015’s Tetsuo & Youth, hits his creative peak with a trilogy of albums—Drogas Light, Drogas and Skulls—the final curtain call on one of the most gifted lyricists and visionaries to grace the mic.
While Drogas Light signifies the beginning of the end for Fiasco, it represents how far he’s come since he first entered the game and merely accents the intellectual breadth of the discography he’ll leave behind. At the onset of career, rappers including Jay Z and Kanye West regarded him as the future of hip-hop, with the latter tapping him for a standout guest verse on “Touch the Sky” after Fiasco remixed West’s hit “Diamonds from Sierra Leone.” His debut album Food & Liquor earned him three Grammy nominations and a win for the Jill Scott-assisted “Daydreamin’,” which netted the trophy for Best Urban/Alternative Performance in 2008.
