Collaborating with the Best in the Business

Lupe Fiasco started off as an aspiring rapping and by collaborating with all the right people he made his way to the top of the charts. During his short stay at Arista Records, he met Jay-Z, who referred to him as a “breath of fresh air,” saying that he reminded him of a younger version of himself. Jay-Z was an executive producer on his first album while Kanye West brought Lupe Fiasco his breakthrough.

Following up his successful collaboration with Trey Songz on “Out Of My Head,” Lupe released his first single from his latest studio album, “Old School Love” featuring Ed Sheeran. One of Lupe’s most well-known songs is “Words I Never Said” ft. Skylar Grey which debuted at #89 on the Billboard Hot 100. “Words I Never Said” was nominated for “A Video with a Message” at the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards. The song has been featured in MTV’s hit series Teen Wolf and Lupe performed the song live on The Colbert Report.

Lupe has revealed his new song with Chris Brown and has announced that Big K.R.I.T. and Rick Ross will be featured on his new album. Lupe continues to collaborate with big names in the industry such as Pharrell, Matthew Santos, and Nikki Jean from “The Cool.”

Adding to his success, Fiasco signed with major footwear and apparel corporation Reebok, becoming part of the "O.G" marketing campaign where rap artists such as Lil Wayne and Mike Jones designed their own personal colorway of the Reebok "O.G" model.

Long Island anxiously awaits Lupe’s arrival to The Paramount in downtown Huntington this Friday. Fans have already begun tweeting about the concert. Hip Hop music finally has a voice on Long Island and The Paramount is proud to support it. The Paramount continues its effort to showcase all genres of music by hosting a broad range of musical talent and is excited to bring hip-hop to Huntington.
