Lupe Fiasco Giving Back To The Chicago Community

Hip Hop

Lupe Fiasco is not only talking about helping people but now he is actually backing those words up by setting a plan to feed hundreds during Ramadan.

Lupe Fiasco has been on a media tour for his upcoming album Food & Liquor 2: The Great American Rap Album Pt. 1, however the rapper is going to take time time out to help feed hundreds of people in his native Chicago, Illinois. Reports say that Lupe plans to feed 100 people a day during Ramadan.

He recently provided locals with vegan food from Soul Vegan Food. Englewood residents lined up for vegan ribs, macaroni and greens at the Payless Grocery on 69th and Ashland.

“It may seem like it’s insignificant, but you never know who’s going to walk away with something and what’s the best way to put it but juxtapose it next to the thing, which is the most visited thing in the community, which is the corner store,” he said.

The Inner City Muslim Action Network is behind the initiative, titled “Muslim Run,” to encourage corner stores to stock more nutritious food. They say that everything starts with one step forward no matter how big or small. Thanks fro reminding us Lupe.
