U.S. Soccer names Lupe Fiasco the music director for the MNT's 2014 World Cup campaign!



U.S. Soccer has named Grammy Award-winning recording artist Lupe Fiasco as the Music Director for the Men’s National Team's 2014 FIFA World Cup campaign.

Building on the “One Nation. One Team.” theme, Chicago-born and Grammy-winning hip-hop artist Fiasco will collaborate with U.S. Soccer in a variety of areas during the Send-Off Series and the World Cup. He will be creating Spotify playlists, in collaboration with his DJ group the SNDCLSH, and handle in-game music programming during the Send-Off Series.

U.S. Soccer is working to promote Fiasco’s new single, “Mission”, during the Send-Off Series. The single, which is about the fight against cancer, was released on Monday. Fiasco will appear in Times Square in New York during Fan Appreciation Day on May 30, and he will hold a music set in Chicago at the U.S. Soccer Fan Fest prior to the USA’s match against Ghana on June 16. - US Soccer

  1. Wow, that's dope. Never surprised when Lupe does big things, but always surprised when Lupe gets recognition and respect. He definitely deserves it.

  2. This is really good for Lupe.

    I mean we all know this is stuff he does on the regular, but it will be nice to see it get even more recognition for his hard work since this is a huge event for America.

    Good job Lu!

  5. Hola como va? soy solo un chico de Argentina, que escucha tu música, principalmente por tus letras libertarias y contra toda la misoginia que se vende en el negocio de la música del rap,
    antes que nada TE QUERÍA FELICITAR POR TUS TRABAJOS REAMENTE MUY BUENOS, me hice adicto a tus últimos albums y espero que los próximos sean bueno también.
    y ahora quisiera advertirte sobre este tema del mundial de fútbol, aquí en latinoamerica muchos sabemos que el la copa de la FIFA solo se hace para tapar toda la hambruna y crisis política de Brasil. Y que todo el dinero derrochado en este espectáculo es sacado de la educación, transporte y salud públicos de todo el país, por lo cual miles de personas en este momento protestan a travez de todo el Brasil, te dejo algunos enlaces para que conozcas la situación mejor:

  6. TRADUCTION IN ENGLISH: Hello how 's it going? I'm just a guy from Argentina , listening your music, primarily for your libertarian lyrics and against all the misogyny that is located in the business of rap music,
     foremost I WANT TO CONGRATULATE YOU FOR YOUR WORKS ARE VERY GOOD REALLY! , I got addicted to your past albums and I hope the next ones were good too....
     and now I would like to warn you about the topic of the World Cup , here in Latin America many comadres know that the FIFA cup is just to cover all the famine and political crisis in Brazil. And all the money I wasted on this show is derived from education, transportation and public health of the country, so thousands of people currently protesting throughout all Brazi, I leave some links for you to meet the situation:
