Check out a review of Lupe's show at the Merriweather Post Pavilion in Columbia, MD that went down this past Friday:
With a huge red lit capital letter "A" dominating center stage and his band (complete with violinist and 3 beautiful female background singers) surrounding him on stage, Lupe took us on a journey.As a hip hop performer, Lupe interacts with and feeds off of his band's instrumental interpretations very well. From the radio popular hits like 'Out of my Head' and 'The Show Goes On' to throwbacks like 'Kick, Push', 'The Cool' and 'Hip-Hop Saved My Life' Lupe performed an effortlessly tireless 55 min set. Bouncing from one end of the stage to the other, Lupe commanded the crowd in a display of how long he really has been doing this.Wale may have warmed the crowd up, but Lupe Fiasco wielded the mic skillfully and kept them hot. Stopping to talk to his audience every once in a while between songs, Lupe constantly reminded his fans to keep moving forward toward your dreams never forgetting where you come from.
