Die hard Wassulu "Lupe Fiasco" Jaco lover!.......I keep coming sooooo close to meeting him, but yet so far away. I too, am from the West Side (Austin) by way of OP. I grew fond of Lupe in my undergrad years and still drawn to his insightful, thought provoking, egalitarian metaphors to this day. I for one, am partial to the "classic" Lupe, but I understand that people evolve and skill continues to be honed. I am excited for the December release of his next album, let's just hope Atlantic don't be on that BS.
