"lupe's show was incredible! such an inspiration..
thanks for showing Brooklyn some love! #LASERS" -traces_notepad

Lupe Fiasco in Brooklyn

Lupe Fiasco played a free sponsored show show at MHOW on Sunday 2/27. Did you go? How was it? He'll also be at the sold-out Webster Hall on March 8th but in addition to that, Lupe has added ANOTHER NYC date after the smoke clears from his Lasers record release. Look for Lupe Fiasco at Roseland on April 24th with the great Black Milk! Tickets are on sale.

Some videos from the Music Hall show below...

It seemed like people could RSVP for a long time. I was wondering if everyone who RSVP'd was able to get in. How difficult was it to get in?

according to twitter, the line started 4 hours before doors (3pm); was wrapped around 3 blocks by 530pm (7pm doors)

i actually talked to two girls in the front row - one started lining up at 9am. the other drove from virginia specifically for the show.

I rsvp'd. Showed up at 6:45. Me and my lady pulled a sweet move and cut right up in front and walked in. Show was good and enjoyable. Nothing incredible or inspirational or whatever the fool at the top of the post says.

RSVP'd. stood in line for 2 hours. didn't get in (along with hundreds of others). bullshit. they shouldn't have accepted so many RSVPs.

I've lived on that block for 11 years now, never seen a line like that for any show. Not when it was still N6th, not when Modest Mouse played their "secret gig".. never. This was just stupid.

His tweet the other day about being humiliated by the universal panning of his new record was hilarious. You could practically see the tears.

I posted right above you. Quit that bitching loser. It is NYC and it was a free show. You should know that for things like this there are tons and tons of losers even worse than you who have nothing to do but sit on line for hours trying to get in. So, if you really want to go then you do that as well. If you actually have a life and don't have hours to just stand on a line then you do what I did and cut and get in. The new fat security goons they hired at Music Hall are idiots. It was 1 2 3 easy to get in to this show.

I personally thought that the wait wasn't worth it. waited 3 hours to watch a half a$$ show. almost all of his songs were cut short. I can understand cutting some songs short but almost all? You're not going to sing the last verse of kick push? really?

Seriously? This was a FREE show...what did you expect? He played for over an hour and 15 minutes...the last Walmart Soundcheck I went to was a 40 min N.E.R.D. show. I'd say this was well worth it, one of his best performances yet. He even did a Japanese Cartoon song! And some mixtape stuff. He played this one for his fans, not for the people who only know his hits!

of course this was a clusterfuck. when ISN"T a hip hop show a clusterfuck in NY that isn't involving The Roots? such a shame.

In response to the anonymous,

that just means that walmart sound checks suck. you think this was one of his greatest performances? Did you even go to his irving plaza show last year? Completely blew this performance out of the water. Not only did he play all of his hits but also had an encore AND brought on cee-lo AND did a freestyle when they cut his music for going past 11. Bro, if you think was one of his greatest performances, you need to get out more.

Exactly, walmart sound checks suck. that's the point. it was awesome for a free show, for someone to expect him to play all his hits, do an encore, bring out a guest, and freestyle is an idiot. why do you only care about his hits anyways? bro, you should listen to more of his mixtape stuff so you would actually know the songs that he performed. this one was for the true fans.
