Wasalu Muhammad Jaco (born February 16, 1982 in Chicago, Illinois), better known by his stage name Lupe Fiasco, is a Grammy Award-winning American hip-hop artist and producer. He first became known to the mainstream hip-hop community in 2005 when he appeared on Kanye West’s album Late Registration on the track “Touch the Sky.” In 2006 Lupe released his debut album, Lupe Fiasco’s Food & Liquor on Atlantic Records, and in December 2007 he released his second full length album, Lupe Fiasco’s The Cool. His next studio album, entitled Lasers, will be based on his high school life and will be released in 2010.
Lupe has previously been on label Epic with his group Da Pak and then signed a solo deal with Arista. His years at Arista only led to the 2003 promo single “Pop Pop” as well as guest appearances on singles from Tha’ Rayne (2002’s “Kiss Me” and 2003’s “Didn’t You Know”) and K Fox (2003’s “This Life”), then Arista folded in 2004 and Lupe was signed to Atlantic Records.
Rapper and current president of Def Jam, Jay-Z was so impressed with Lupe that, even though he couldn’t sign him to Def Jam, he decided to executive-produce his album anyway. Then Lupe lit the streets on fire.
