American hip-hop singer and producer Lupe Fiasco, whose real name is Wasalu Muhammad Jaco and who was born on February 16, 1982, in Chicago, Illinois, is a Grammy Award winner. In 2005, he rose to fame in the mainstream hip-hop scene with his appearance on “Touch the Sky” by Kanye West from the album Late Registration. Atlantic Records published Lupe Fiasco’s Food & Liquor, his debut album, in 2006. Lupe Fiasco’s The Cool, his second full-length album, was out in December 2007. A protest over Atlantic’s decision to not release his next studio album, Lasers, occurred on March 8th, 2011, leading up to its release.

Freedom Ain’t Free—The Way I See It (Around My Way) Lupe Fiasco’s Food & Liquor II: The Great American Rap Album Pt. 1 (Fiasco’s fourth studio album), according to Songfacts, had its launch on May 21, 2012. Among the topics he spits rhymes about on “Around My Way (Freedom Ain’t Free)” are sociopolitical issues in Ghana and the invasion of Iraq, as well as “Suicide bombers and prosperity gospels, emaciated models, with cocaine and blood pouring out their nostrils” and other undesirable features of contemporary American society.

“Tetsuo & Youth” was Lupe’s fifth studio album, and it was released on January 20, 2015.

Before signing a solo deal with Arista, Lupe was a member of the band Da Pak and was signed to Epic. His years at Arista only led to the 2003 promo single “Pop Pop” as well as guest features on singles by Tha’ Rayne (2002’s “Kiss Me” and 2003’s “Didn’t You Know”) and K Fox (2003’s “This Life”), then Arista dissolved in 2004 and Lupe was signed to Atlantic Records.
