Blessed to have attended, the Red Bull Music Festival continued November 21st, 2019 with none other than Lupe Fiasco. Sold out on a Thursday, it was hands down a night to remember and one for the books.
Hosted at The Riviera Theater in Chicago, opening acts arose from Kidd Kenn, Two Depressed Kids, and The Twilite Tone. These three acts set the mood for Lupe Fiasco to own the stage and he did just that.
Chicago-born rapper, Lupe Fiasco gave the crowd a passionate performance of a lifetime, reciting his entire 2006 album Food & Liquor. An album that touched millions of listeners in 2006, Lupe Fiasco was able to reciprocate the same feelings and energy back to his hometown 13 years later. A magical night for Chicago, Fiasco’s performance lasted around 2 hours and included a charismatic band featuring horns and violins. Cinematic, holding nothing back, Lupe Fiasco delivered an intimate, three minute speech (outro) towards the end of the show.
Lupe Fiasco appeared on stage the whole time in a Bulls jersey stamped with his name on the back. Thanks to Red Bull for hosting the Grammy Award-winning rapper, Lupe Fiasco, Chicago could appreciate once more what Lupe has done for the music industry with just this one classic album as well as the path he paved for all the artists to come after him. Overall, an impressive and aesthetically pleasing show, I would definitely give it a five out of five stars.
The Red Bull Music Festival continues in the beautiful and musically talented city of Chicago through November 30th. With this being the third day, please check the website for more details and tickets on upcoming performances.
