Lupe Fiasco To Headline Hip-Hop Panel Commemorating “Lasers” Protest

Lupe Fiasco and his Fiasco Street Team made waves last year when “Fiasco Friday” got the successful Lasers LP to eventually hit stores with a protest.

To commemorate the achievement, there will be a hip-hop discussion panel held November 12th, at St. Francis College in Brooklyn NY at 2 P.M.

Co-organizer of The Fiasco Street Team, Luella Mink hopes to bring together fans, writers, bloggers, activists and anyone that wants to contribute to topics ranging from mainstream radio to misogynistic lyrics.

Mink stated, “We figured since our inspiration to form the team came from us being anxious to spread awareness and inspire a new generation of leaders, it only made sense to hold a discussion on the current state of Hip-Hop, where it’s at, and where it’s going.”

The tickets will be $10 and the event is from 3 P.M. to 5 P.M. with proceeds going towards the Horn Of Africa fundraiser.
