Lupe Fiasco

More concerned with his art form than the flashiness of the scene, Lupe Fiasco has always played the background of the rap game. However, he's never let this fact get in the way of the show. His electrified stage performance combined with his highly insightful and intricate lyrics are some of the things that have helped this Chicago spitter maintain. In anticipation of his performance at BET's Hip Hop Awards 2011, BET.com takes a look at some of his career highlights.
