Lupe Fiasco was pulled over by NYPD officers early Wednesday morning.
Fiasco performed Tuesday evening at legendary B.B. Kings in midtown Manhattan and according to sources within Fiasco’s braintrust, were stopped and detained by ‘hip hop police.’
The term hip hop police is used in hip-hop culture as a term applied to an NYPD department devoted to criminal activity within the hip-hop industry. Additionally, it is believed to originate in New York City and spread to other police departments of several cities.
According to my sources, rapper Lupe Fiasco was just pulled over by the #NYPD after his concert at BB KINGS in NYC.

When the NYPD follows you from the show then pulls you over 10 deep to the search the car cuz we from Chicago!
Hahaha…I ain’t even mad.
He later deleted the tweet.
