When: Fri., Dec. 15, 8-11:30 p.m. 2017
Lupe Fiasco is currently touring to promote his latest album, Drogas Light, but the Grammy award-winning rapper and producer has been busy with far more than just touring and recording. His docuseries, Beat n Path, follows the Chicago hip-hop artist as he embarks on a cross-cultural journey across China exploring martial arts — something Fiasco is deeply passionate about — and the burgeoning hip-hop scene in China. He has also taken on the role of activist, using his social media channels to denounce violence around the world. Most recently, he raised awareness about the Nigerians who were abducted and sold into slavery in Libya. For his tour stop in Berkeley, expect Fiasco’s show to be heavily political, but also musically delightful. COMPLEX named Drogas Light one of the best albums of 2017.
