Lupe Fiasco knows just how to incite the masses, whether it be through his politically charged lyrics or the convincing execution of his rhymes: When this man speaks, everyone listens up. Such is the case with his record Lasers, the culmination of a standoff between the MC and Atlantic Records, his label at the time (he's since signed with Rick Ross's Maybach Music Group). Over the years, he's amassed a cult-like following of fans, and he's still churning out anti-government anthems with every bar and hook. Hot on the heels of his 2012 release, Lupe Fiasco's Food & Liquor II: The Great American Rap Album, Lupe is hotter than ever before, and from the looks of it, he has no plans to stop.
