My baby Lupe Fiasco….
November 22, 2008 § 1 Comment
For a while I was uber focused on getting President-Elect Barack Obama to be in the position that he is now…and although that hurdle has been overcome (YAAAAAYYYY!!!!!) I know that there is still a lot of work to be done. Which is where an occupation working in the Obama administration would fit right in with my plans to continue the great work we have accomplished thus far. But this post is not about my hopes to be a part of an Obama administration.
No, this post is to acknowledge my baby….the brilliant and swexy Lupe Fiasco.
I never forgot about him — I mean, how can someone forget about someone as amazing as Wasalu Muhammad Jaco aka Lupe Fiasco?
I love the fact that he is such a cool nerd….I don’t know whether or not he describes himself as such but he is one. He is ridiculously smart and constantly thinking about life and all of its intricacies and issues and graces. He dresses quite well and it is always wonderful to see what he has on – and he is willing to take risks with his clothing which I highly respect. He has the most adorable smile and it makes me happy whenever he smiles. He is taller than me although he is 5’10”, which makes him just right for me even if he is too short for some other women. He speaks on the future and doesn’t have time nor the desire to speak about people or situations — future progress is where he is headed. He is an activist and he puts himself out there, especially when it is not part of the status quo — he is a leader and a heretic and I love it. All of these things encourage me to be an avid supporter of Lupe Fiasco. Did I mention his beautiful level of energy and absolute love of life? Hmmm…but mainly…it is his brain that gets me going.
If you have a beautiful brain AND you are able to effectively convey your ideas to another person, then we are in a very good place. Most people do not use their brains and/or they are completely unable to convey their ideas – I am still learning that sad fact being in the “working” world.
Anyways, here are some videos so you can see my baby in action and the cuteness and brilliance that he is..
“It is time to have eloquence in our actions” — I love Lupe Fiasco!
