Lupe Fiasco's Modest Mouse-cribbed single 'The Show Goes On'
Brought into the mainstream by Kanye West, Lupe's sensibilities are eclectic and broad, and his use of the media practically nonexistent compared to his mentor. His ginger handling of his high profile belies a smart, cautious, and popularity-weary type of artist; as willing to move on to better things - like donating food around Thanksgiving (wonder if Kanye gave away free Fatburgers? ) - as to wrangle with a label. Which he doesn't have to any more, for now.
