Lupe Fiasco, one of hip-hop’s most electrifying and active live performers, is currently on a major North American tour supporting his longtime friend and associate Kanye West on West’s blockbuster Glow In The Dark Tour. The trek started last week in Las Vegas, NV and winds down June 13 in Cincinnati, OH. On June 13 Fiasco will be playing an additional set in Manchester, TN at the Bonnaroo Music Festival.

Lupe Fiasco’s “The Cool,” his chart-topping second album, has been certified gold by the RIAA for sales exceeding 500,000. The critically acclaimed album — which features the hit singles, “Superstar (Feat. Matthew Santos)” and “Hip-Hop Saved My Life (Feat. Nikki Jean)” — debuted on Billboard’s Top Rap Albums chart at #1 upon its December 2007 release, and remained in the peak position for nine weeks.

In February, the Chicago-based MC earned his first-ever Grammy Award, bringing home the “Best Urban/Alternative Performance” trophy for last year’s smash, “Daydreamin’ (Feat. Jill Scott).”

The MC first made himself known with his featured appearance on West’s hit single, “Touch The Sky,” followed by the anthemic hit single, “Kick, Push.” The 25-year-old rapper soon proved to be the year’s biggest hip-hop breakthrough, garnering a trio of 2006 Grammy Award nominations, including “Best Rap Album,” “Best Rap Song,” and “Best Rap Solo Performance.”
