About Lupe Fiasco
On his first two albums, Food & Liquor (2006), and The Cool (2007), Lupe Fiasco
earned his reputation as a rap philosopher, a sharp, dynamic lyricist, and an MC who could shock you. Food & Liquor would go on to reach No. 8 on the Billboard 200, spawn subsequent singles "I Gotcha" and "Daydreamin'," featuring Jill Scott, and end the year with multiple Grammy nominations. A year later, The Cool reached even greater heights selling over 500,000 copies and spawning the top-ten hit "Superstar," featuring Matthew Santos. On March 8, 2011, Fiasco returned with one of the most heavily anticipated releases in recent years, a revolutionary album called LASERS, reaching new heights of lyrical and musical mastery, while aiming to reach even bigger audiences.
About Cobra Starship
The band burst onto the scene with a dance-pop-rock single named "Snakes on a Plane (Bring It)." The song -- which featured frontman Gabe Saporta performing alongside fellow vocalists Maja Ivarson (the Sounds), Travis
McCoy (Gym Class Heroes and William Beckett (the Academy Is…) was the lead track off the 2006 soundtrack to Snakes on a Plane. Made up of Saporta, guitarist Ryland Blackinton, keytarist Victoria
Asher, drummer Nate Novarro and bassist Alex Suarez, the band signed to Decaydance that same year and spent part of the fall touring with Gym Class Heroes. While the City Sleeps, We Rule the Streets
hit stores that October, marking the band's official debut. After several changes, the lineup returned in 2007 with ¡Viva la Cobra!, followed two years later by Hot Mess. The latter album was preceded by "Good Girls Gone Bad," a Top 40 hit co-penned by Kara DioGuardi and sung by Saporta and Gossip
Girl actress Leighton Meester. The band kept the party going in 2011 with the release of their fourth album, Night Shades. www.CobraStarship.com
