Lupe Fiasco might have an album called “The Cool” but he sure lost his while on stage at the University of Cincinnati, when he was briefly interrupted during his set by someone from the crowd tossing a glow stick (which is really more of a necklace) at the rapper and it nailed him right between the eye’s.
Wasalu halted the music to address the crowd and troublemaker who pelted him by going on a rant that boasted his Kung Fu skills and the fact he is a 4 degree black belt. Read the transcript and watch the video below:
“Listen, hold up two seconds we’ll get back to the show, listen. I know you a jerk,..and that’s cool. I know that you came hear and ya thought that I’ma get some shine real quick and throw some shit at Lupe and hit him in the face. But! let me remind you of something, okay? Hold on ya’ll, just hold on we gonna get back to the show, we gonna get to Kick Push. BUT LET ME REMIND YOU SOMETHING..you see this waist? This waist right here” In his best Katt William’s impression he continued “There used to be…4 black belts around this waist”.
After his tangent about his martial arts training the crowed cheered which gave the Chicago rapper the courage to then challenge his detractors to fisticuffs at the side of the stage.
So listen, Everybody that WANNA THROW SOME SHIT…kindly step over to the side of the stage….and I’ll give you five minutes of fame here. I’ll seek what ever you want from this show to make sure they don’t get your broken up ass outside of jail.
Ending the tirade with “In the words of Jay-Z “IT AINT A MOVIE DAWG”, don’t get fucked up! Referencing Hov’s lyric from The Black Album’s P.S.A as the segue back to the performance. “NOW can we get back to the show?!”
