America’s skateboard loving hip hop bro Lupe Fiasco will be kickflipping his way around our big island home come February next year. Sydney, Perth and Adelaide are all locked & loaded, even the giraffes @ Melbourne Zoo will get their fair share of Lupe fever with Lupe down to do a very special show at the Melbourne Zoo as part of Sound Safari.

Here’s an extract taken from the last time we wiggled LF text up within our code;

“It has to be said Lupe Fiasco well and truly blew our doo rag off. Credit where credit’s due it was much largely thanks to Mr.Fiasco’s virgin tight six piece band who took their own brand of pop infused acid jazz to another echelon ending EVERY track with !!!’esque dread lock unravelling pysch out jams, which as you would’ve guessed went down extremely well.””

You should probably go huh?
