Big Concert Artist Is…

Posted on February 15th, 2010 by

It is official. The Big Concert for 2010 is Lupe Fiasco!

The show is scheduled for Saturday, April 17th, doors at: 7pm – show at: 8pm. The show is general admission, and will be held in The Lund Arena.

Chicago-based Muslim MC Lupe Fiasco began rapping in junior high school and joined a group called Da Pak several years later. The group signed to Epic, released one single, and split up, all before Fiasco reached the age of 20. Thanks in part to the vocal support of Jay-Z, L.A. Reid signed Fiasco as a solo artist to Arista, but before anything of significance was able to happen (only a promo single and a couple guest appearances were set up), Reid was fired, leaving the MC without a label. Fiasco eventually landed at Atlantic. Preceded by the single “Kick, Push,” as well as several mixtapes and an appearance on Kanye West‘s “Touch the Sky,” the album Food & Liquor was set to surface during early 2006, though an unfinished version leaked during the spring, pushing its official release back to September instead. The album earned Fiasco three Grammy nominations. A highly conceptualized follow-up, The Cool, was released in December 2007. ~ Andy Kellman, All Music Guide (all rights reserved mtv.com)
