Lupe Fiasco, B.O.B. and Dosage


Roseland (map) Northwest
Thu., May 6, 8 p.m. 2010 All Ages


Best known for being featured on Kanye’s “Touch the Sky,” and his rap ode to skateboarding, “Kick, Push,” Lupe Fiasco has an entire catalog of fresh, innovative songs teeming with soulful production. Also along for the tour is B.o.B. whose frenetic, club-snappin’ rhymes will prime the pump for a very fun night at the Roseland. WM. STEVEN HUMPHREY

As a recording artist, Lupe Fiasco spent most of last year engaged in an intricate game of bait and switch, grandly announcing impending releases—the three-CD LupE.N.D., the one-disc Great American Rap Album—before shelving/postponing each one. Lucky for all, Fiasco's sole 2009 release—the free mixtape Enemy of the State—was a complete delight, gathering sharp-as-his-best lyrics over 22 minutes of wonderful music, from Radiohead's "The National Anthem" to Timbaland and Drake's "Say Something." Tonight Fiasco brings his endlessly ambitious self to town, with support from hot-poop newcomer B.o.B. and Philadelphia rapper Dosage. DAVID SCHMADER
