According to Amazon, the Lupe Fiasco’s single, Shining Down, will drop on July 7th. The final version isn’t that different from the leak some of you may have heard already. Matthew Santos’ chorus is a bit altered now and some of the instrumentation behind Lupe’s words are less extravagant; it’s a bit toned down from the original version but it’s still a very solid track, so be on the lookout for it in a few weeks.
Just as a side note, I am going to Lupe’s concert tonight at the Chicago Theatre in Chicago, Illinois. Just a few weeks ago I was there for Kanye West, and tonight I will be there for Lupe. Wow. So, for the rest of the day, that is what I will be doing. Oww.

About three or so weeks ago, I announced that Lupe Fiasco would be having a free concert in Chicago, Illinois at Grant Park in conjunction with the Nike 6.0 BMX Open June 26th. Well, things have changed since then. The event has been moved from Grant Park to the Chicago Theatre, in an effort to avoid overlapping with the Taste of Chicago music stage. However, more important than the change of venues, tickets will now cost $20. Tickets are now available starting today at the Chicago Theatre box office or via Ticketmaster.
Also, the doors will open at 8:30 p.m. and the show will begin with Lady Sovereign performing at 9:30 p.m. Lastly, Lupe will go on at 10:15p.m. Regardless if it is not free anymore, I will still be there. Lupe is one of my favorite artists, and $20 for a ticket is not bad at all.

Next door to this year’s Taste of Chicago, the Nike 6.0 BMX Open will be underway from June 26-27 in Grant Park. But that is not the good news. The good news is that on Friday, June 26, Lupe Fiasco will be performing a free show in conjunction with the BMX open.
OMG! First a Ye concert in two weeks in Chicago, and now a free Lupe Fiasco show at the end of the month. This is going to be an intense month, no doubt. If you know me, you know that Lupe is in my top three favorite artists of all time, so this is just amazingly, huge news. I’m there, anyone want to tag along? Get at me if you’d like.
Get more details after the jump.

To quote Big Sean, “If you really want to talk about good, I’m good.” Well, here is some more good music by G.O.O.D Music artist Malik Yusef featuring GLC, Really Doe, Maxamillion, and JV. The song, Chicago, is off of Malik Yusef’s G.O.O.D. Morning, G.O.O.D. Night album. I am a big fan of Yusef and his lyrical ability, so check out this song.
