Since the mid-2000s, Lupe Fiasco has been one of hip-hop’s most intelligent and enigmatic artists. A Grammy winner, Henry Crown Fellow, and visiting MIT professor, Lupe Fiasco’s complex narratives and creative metaphors are rare examples of commercially successful and critically acclaimed artistry. Initially rising to fame with 2006’s ‘Food & liquor’, the following year’s ‘The Cool’ cemented Lupe Fiasco as an international star. Led by his first top ten single ‘Superstar’, ‘The Cool’ received a gold certification and four Grammy nominations. Since ‘The Cool’, Lupe Fiasco has released several albums, including the chart-topping ‘Lasers’ (2011), with 2022’s ‘Drill Music in Zion’ his latest. On September 7, join Lupe Fiasco as MeanRed welcomes the Chicago-rapper to New York’s Capital One City Parks Foundation Summerstage in celebration of 15 years of ‘The Cool.’
