Lupe Fiasco Makes His Way Back to the Philippines on Cove Manila Stage

LUPE FIASCO, one of hip hop’s most prominent artists, brings his lyrical stylings to Cove Manila for one night of intense partying and dropping beats on June 22nd.

With Grammy recognitions and several gold and platinum certifications, Lupe Fiasco (Wasalu Muhammad Jaco in real life) carved out a space in the hip hop and rap community as a formidable artist at a very young age.

The Chicago-based Fiasco started exploring rap in junior high school. Later, he joined a group called Da Pak which disbanded shortly after signing with Epic Record and releasing one single. Barely in his twenties, Fiasco was signed as a solo artist to Arista thanks, in part, to the vocal support of Jay-Z. Eventually, Fiasco found his way to another major label, Atlantic, where he was given the opportunity to release his first album, Food & Liquor, preceding several mixtapes, his debut single “Kick, Push”, and an appearance on Kanye West’s “Touch the Sky”.

Peaking at number 8 on the Billboard 200, Food & Liquor earned Fiasco three Grammy nominations and a win for “Daydreamin’” featuring Jill Scott for Best Urban/Alternative Performance. In 2007, his second, highly conceptualized album, The Cool was released and gained a gold certification leading to four more Grammy nominations including a platinum certification for his first Top Ten single, “Superstar”.

Fiasco’s next album, Lasers, was released by Atlantic in 2011 following a signed petition by his fans due to the long delay. The album topped three charts: Hot R&B Hip Hop Albums, Hot Rap Albums, and the Billboard 200 with hits like “The Show Must Go On” hitting the Top Ten on Hot 100, and “Out of My Head” peaking at number 40 on Hot 100 and number 11 on Hot R&B/Hip Hop.

Between 2014 and 2015, a few non-album related singles were released including Fiasco’s collaboration with Ed Sheeran called “Old School Love”; and in 2016, he issued to singles, “Pick Up the Phone” and “Made in the USA”. By February 2017, Lupe Fiasco released his album Drogas Light after a brief hiatus. Featuring appearances with artists like Ty Dolla $ign, Big K.R.I.T., and Rick Ross, Drogas Light proved to be a successful independently issued album.

Come see Lupe Fiasco as he returns to the Philippines at Cove Manila. With his unique brand of rhymes and beats, Manila is definitely going to have one lit night!

Doors open at 10:30pm. Tickets begin at Php 500.00.
