Hey,

So Lupe Fiasco, awesome political hip-hop artist, has indicated he is open to doing a free concert during #OCCUPYWALLSTREET! Seriously, he tweeted this to his 700,000 followers: https://twitter.com/#!/LupeFiasco/status/99614843623059456

I started a petition to try and convince him to do it... Please help spread the word: http://lupefiascopleaseoccupywallstreet.com/

I dig the idea but that doesn't defeat the purpose. He is part of mainstream music still. Even though his label struggles are well documented...

Too weird; I was just listening to "The Show Goes On" and thinking that it would be a great rally song.

This is great. I know some have a problem with the idea that he is part of "mainstream" but we have to start getting past that. there is a difference between being mainstream and using the system to spread thought provoking truths. >madonna is mainstream; she came from nothing, got rich singing songs she didn't write, and now acts british, is condescending and does nothing good for the world or type of communities she came from. Someone who makes it and uses that position to provide for their family and spread good messages to provoke chang; that is a different story. I think we should support such a public figure getting involved. Saying you dont want him involved because he is Mainstream is like saying you dont want the mass majority to join your cause.
