Lupe Fiasco - Character Approved (Video)

blame it on Meka January 30, 2009

While I was watching Burn Notice last night I saw this quick vignette of hese various individuals that had won USA's "Character Approved" award, and lo and behold Lupe was among such winners. Since I don't know exactly how to not make the video auto-play, you can check it out (be sure to watch both parts) under the cut.

  • hen

    yup, awesome piece!
    he is plain cool.

  • I Hope The News (Rumors) Of The Upcoming Three Count Em Three New Albums And Then LupEND Are True

  • Dope indeed.

  • Muzzie

    @Justin: Not a rumor, Lupe said it himself. He also announced the title of the first single of one of the discs.

  • Niko Bellic

    @ JustinCase

    LupEND is 3 albums lol

  • mark

    lupEND is a 3 disc set, the first of which comes out in june and is titled everywhere

  • Niko Bellic

    i heard that the 1st disc comes out at the end of the year

  • why aren't these comments working

  • Lupe Fiasco News read this.

  • Lupe Fiasco shit shit this is bein gay, w/e, if you can't see it go look at the one that says breaking news.

  • Muzzie

    I was looking around, and just found out that "Everywhere" was to come out in June, but something happened, so it, along with the rest of the LupEND series was moved to an undecided date. In place, he said he was going to drop "The Great American Rap Album". Found on Wiki, so not sure.

  • Muzzie

    Guess Qualitate confirms what I found, lol..

  • tyro.k.y

    So, according to the update:

    June:
    3rd album The Great American Rap Album
    (11 tracks, new material - not LUPE E.N.D)

    Japanese Cartoon
    (Lupe's alter ego Britsh punk-rock-indie album)

    December
    4th Album tentatively untitled
    (not LUPE.N.D)

    June 2010
    5th album tentatively untitled

    Post June 2010
    The Beginning of or all of LUPE.N.D
    (a 3 disc album)

    Some time CRS will create an official album.
    That makes 6 new albums (3 official (June, December, June 2010), LUPE.N.D (3 more sold as 1 set tentatively coming), 1 Lupe side project, and 1 group project.

    God damn!
    Lupe the truth!

  • yo i was watchin that too haha

  • @ Niko I Know It Says Three Albums Then LupE.N.D. For A Total Of Perhaps Six Discs Im Not Dumb

  • Or More

  • yo

    Mr. Fiasco, My Hero.

  • Niko Bellic

    i dont know where yall are hearing this 3 albums b4 LupEND cuz clearly dude says on The Cool that LupEND is his next album and it was confirmed to be 3 discs under LupEND with each disc for each letter.

  • tyro.k.y

    Niko, stop being a fool. Read his update on his website which informs us with new information since the release of The Cool. Unless it got hacked, it's him.

  • tyro.k.y

    Oh yeah, plus he's writing a book. haha. how can you hate on this man?

  • Zach Black

    Lupe Fiasco is the realist really out..lol

  • I Heard Four Books The First Is "Reflections Of A Window Washer" Plus He Said In A Recent Radio Interview That He Hates The Israeli Army And By Chance The Japanese Cartoon Myspace Page Says "Fuck The Israeli Army" So A Little Link

  • PM

    "LupE.N.D. right after that...when the liberation comes!!!..."

    My guess is he'll tell Atlantic to fuck off and part ways after he fulfills his contract obligation, and then release all 3 discs of LUPE.N.D. at once.

  • Good Observation PM

  • Niko Bellic

    @ tyro.k.y

    cool out lol. i thought someone was posting another bullshit resource cuz someone mentioned Wiki as well. 6 albums is better than 3. more Lupe. Lupe is a talented dude.

  • Big_E

    those cant be studio albums...nobody jus decides 2 drop 3 albums outta nowhere...prob street albums/mixtapes...im still syced tho!

  • Ty

    all things must come to an E.N.D.

  • voltron

    LUPE is without a question classy..no beef, no shit..straight music...Curren$y is the next Lupe though no one can touch Lupe and where he is at..not as big as Lil Wayne in mulla but hell of alot under the head and in the music than lil wayne by far..by far i means worlds apart in complexity and intellectual abilities to make songs that transcend rap and mean more than boats n hoes...shout to Meka..nice grab..peace

    IDK about CurrenSy being the next Lupe... that man is just too weird and unique to say that...the same with Kanye or andre 3k or Jay-Z and a few others...(too many to list)
    but to me the next closest to be something like Lupe would be Mickey Factz IMO

  • thats coming form a CurrenSy fan...( that nigga is jsut cool lol)

  • Showman3000

    OVERRATED!

  • Raw Factz
