Lupe's first Outstanding Fan Awards went down in NYC yesterday. Now before we get into anything I want to say, how many artists give away awards to fans and appreciate them like that? That's an awesome thing of Lupe to do.
Not only was it a night of awards for fans but also an album release party so some special guests came through, namely Pharrell, Kenna, Loaded Lux, Guy Sebastian and more.
Awards were given out in different categories and we were awarded with the award for Best Fansite! Check out a list of winners and more pics below!

Guy came through...
...and Lu's mom was there as well and he danced with her on stage.
Looks like it was a great night for everyone involved. We definitely appreciate the fan site award and on a personal level, having an award named after me and being able to give it to someone was a great thing and it definitely means a lot to me. Thanks to Lupe for doing that and caring so much about his fans & supporters.
