1st and 15th/Atlantic recording artist Lupe Fiasco has recently been asked to join rapper Kanye West for the remainder of his "Touch The Sky Tour." The up-and-coming 23 year-old Chicago-based rapper collaborated on Kanye West's song "Touch The Sky" from his 2005 release "Late Registration." Lupe Fiasco will join the tour beginning tomorrow, December 3 in Los Angeles and continuing through December 10 in Seattle.
Lupe Fiasco's Atlantic debut, "FOOD AND LIQUOR," is set for release in early 2006. The album's buzz-track "Kick, Push" is already gaining huge momentum at radio. The song, a dedication to the art of skateboarding, is as refreshing lyrically as it is rhythmically. "FOOD AND LIQUOR," which is co-executive produced by Jay-Z, will feature collaborations with artists from all genres, including Needlz, the Buchanans, and Mike Shinoda of Linkin Park.
The much anticipated "FOOD AND LIQUOR" has already begun to create critical buzz. Complex coined Lupe Fiasco as "Chi-town's next big wave," and XXL named the young phenom one of their 2006 All Stars.
