Lupe Fiasco talks US Soccer w/ FOX Sports sat down with Lupe in New York to chat about his new role with the United States Soccer Federation and past experiences about the beautiful game.

  1. Haha, LUPE could've been a soccer player. I can picture it now. Id be like what kind of name is Wasulu? He from chi town? Oh I wanna see what he can do! Lol, he would be a great soccer player.

  2. Selling out just came together naturally this time lol, no disrespect to Lupe. As far as mainstreaming goes he has learned a lot and hasn't sold his soul. Lupe and soccer, or Lupe climbs a mountain, can't say this guy isn't enjoying life to the fullest. He da man now dawg!

  3. Lu's always been the man, he's just learning how to utilize it fully and show the world what's up. He's like a train, and once he's off Atlantic, no one will stop his path. Good times.


Thanks for the comment - have a nice day !
